We recently finished the complete renovation of a 1962 Globetrotter. Luckily, it was in solid shape when we bought it in Oregon-- mostly clean shell, straight frame, intact interior. It took 5 months to make it new again. We redid all the systems and reinvented the design to make it distinctively retro-contemporary. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks B,

I have replied to the other post but additional info was needed and appreciated. I am a skilled carpenter and so all the work will be done by me. Also, good advise on the scope reference. Finding myself going off the original issue I mean to address by finding additional damaged/worn parts.

Need advise on what best material to use to seal the exterior panels and loose rivets as though I only have minor leaks, they need to be fixed before additional interior...

Well hello world....

This posting is one part test and one part introduction.

First, the test. If this shows up on the web we know it's working. Yay!

Secondly, an introduction. We're a family of 3 currently in Colorado who have just (as in yesterday) brought home our first vintage airstream - a 1968 Globetrotter that goes by the name of 'Loretta'.

Our goal is to bring her back to life and enjoy her as much as we can - as the neighbor...
