Itís his fault this time!

The first Airstream was my fault. MrRivet was at work and I found my dream Airstream (Ď04 28í International) online at a dealer just over an hour away. Airstream #2 I acquired about the same way he was at work but it was a risky Craigís list find. It was a successful purchase (Ď48 Liner) and only thirty minutes from the house. So now we had both a usable Airstream and a project Airstream.

Now letís move forward to present time. MrRivet has retired and I was at work. He was working on Airstream #2 when he gets a call last week. So this time itís his fault and this is what has followed him home ...

Airstream #3 now sits in our yard as well. Itís a 1963 Safari. Itís a hot mess but itís his hot mess. The Ď48 Liner will take a sideline for a few days while he is assessing the hot mess of a situation and getting at least a few layers of crud off. It had sat in a nearby forest since 1976 unmoved. It was a true rescue mission! The best we can tell the owner, at the time, was last inside it in 1984. A time capsule. Left as it was with anticipation of returning to his hunt camp the next winter.

Now we will see how much good a wash does!

Uh oh! Have you seen a doctor regarding
This case of Aluminitus?
I had a lovely 25’ ‘05 Safari- so I restored
A wreck of a ‘65 26’ Overlander. AND just
as I finished that, I fell into a ‘72 24’!!
Sold the Safari and scrapped the ‘72 for
Parts and will have to keep the Overlander for
Another year while waiting for the DMV to
Issue a clear title!!! I totally profited on the
The Safari and doubled $ on scrapping for
Parts on the ‘72—-ah but I may have too
Much in to the Overlander time and $ to
See much profit—— but I’m having fun and
Keeping busy!!!!

Itís definitely a problem of Aluminitus!!! MrRivet couldnít help himself and started cleaning a little spot. If time allows today The Hot Mess should receive itís first bath!

Wondering if the inside looked like a dystopian, government controlled, gray space or was just overflowing with Rubik's Cubes and Toto records. :-D

Good luck on your purchase, you could have a diamond in the rough. Looking forward to seeing the pictures of the interior and exterior after cleaning.

I was surprised all that crud came off the hot mess. I fear the tropical lush Florida climate worked hard to return this trailer to dirt and bauxite.

The 63 Safari is a worthwhile project, just like the Liner is. MrRivet will have many enjoyable hours renovating these two old Airstream trailers.
