I'm an Airstreamer. the '73 TW is home

Well, she's a 73 not a 72, kinda thought a 72 sounded cooler, but what are the differences anyway. She pulled home with no effort or trouble. Tommorrow begins the cleanup/inventory/what she needs day. I hope the pic loads. MPJ

Welcome

Welcome to the 73 club. Your model with the rear bath is often subject to rear end seperation because of the weight back there. Search in frames for this subject and read what has been done. The only way to know how bad things are is to drop the belly pan. My 73 excella 31' looks great on the outside. I just dropped the pan and found that the entire frame needs to be rebuilt. Both my main frame rails have rusted out. I now need to pull the shell off the frame and build a new one. It was not what I wanted to do when I started renos but can't leave it like this. Your A/S looks to be in great shape. You are very lucky to have original zip dee awning in good shape. I just spent $3000 for new zip dees all the way around (3 in total). Good luck with your new baby.

Nice looking unit. Looks ready to go.
As wasagachris mentioned take a look at the rear end for a gap between the bumper cover and shell. If you can, check if you can see the floor behind the bathroom storage compartment. If there is any wetness or funky wood back there address that problem first.
Good luck, enjoy your new TW. We do,

Tom.
