Hi again Jill; seeing as the two of us are both jumping in with both feet at the same time, maybe it would be fun to help each other out. I am a pretty handy and knowledgeableable guy ha ha in most respects, and I would be happy to help you with your 'trotter in any way...likely we can both learn and benefit at the same time. What say you..

Lowendall, welcome aboard. We are glad that you have joined us here in the Airstream community. Congrats on your purchase. These little things can get quite addicting. Since, I purchased my 61, I also have purchased a 1967 and am working on it. I bought my 61 in May of 09 and had it ready to go camping in Sept. 09. I worked night and day to get it done and glad I did, so I could reap the benefits of using it last fall. I am finishing things up on the 67 now. I have used it all summer the way it was. It didn't need to much just mostly cosmetic. We would love to see pictures of your purchase and if I can be of any help, just ask.

That wonderfully restored one on the previous page was done by one featured restorers on those generic Travel Channel shows about RV's and trailers: Craig Dorsey. He's moved up to northeastern Canada in the last couple years. This page has some of his "greatest hits", including the '61 Globe, though some have become dead links, which is downright criminal - they're all restorations that should continue to be seen and enjoyed.

Vintage Vacations Past Clients

Among the solutions he used (including that slide-out birch drawer) it was the first time I'd seen a marine-style porthole put into an Airstream door-in-a-door. It's a fabulous way to bring some light into that otherwise 6 foot or so windowless stretch on the curbside.

His '68 Caravel with aqua blue nameplates and wheels is another stand out favorite.
