1962 globetrotter

hi shari, it looks very similar to yours,in fact so similar that since i got the computer two weeks ago and dont know all the features on it yet,i have been using your 64 picture for my screensaver (somehow i managed to drag it into my pictures file ) I tried the other day to get into my dell pictures studio,movie maker and roxio too,to find out abot the upload from digital camcorder,to my airstream photos picture library.ive tried a few things but not managed to upload. i would like to do a site like the one of yours that was done so well.i did manage to load a few still pics to my movie studio but im not sure how to get them into the airstream photos site.could you walk me thru it when you have time.maybe ill make it to the colorado rally and see yours. are you going?

Sure Wayne...I'll help when I have some time...I just got back into town so it's pretty hectic today, maybe I'll be able to carve out some time tonight. I'll PM you some picture "tips".

As far as the CO VAC Rally, I'm actually the "Wagon Mistress" so yes, I'm attending... It was a blast last year, we had several '63 & '64 GlobeTrotters in attendence...would love to have you join us with your '62! It's a great way to compare similar units side-by-side and swap notes...

And of course, we're also going to the AirstreamForum.com rally in NM too! Lokks like this'll be a good one too, albeit smaller and more diverse!

Chat more later!

Shari

wow,ill have to decide which one would be better for vintage ,which will be the larger event,whats closer( not that it really matters from here) i dont think the distance to nm will be too much farther,can you tell me how to get on mapster or mapquest when you e mail me?and dont hurry i am out on disability recovering from a hernia surgery with time to spare.it looks like our local santa clara unit of the w.b.c.c.i has events planned at the same times as the co&nm forums&vac; so ill have to weigh it out at this end also, and get rite back to you on it.(june 20th to22nd here will be an airstream meet at laguna seca raceway) and august 8-10 here will be the airstream meet at neils vineyard in vacaville ca;but im sure to get to go to one of yours.let me know how&where to send reservations for both(.i just missed out on the napa ca. meet here may 8-11th by not reg in time) my other e mail add waywund at a.o.l .com will be closing down,and the present wonderful62@earthlink.net is being re configured to'' incredemail '' today but should stay the same.talk to you again,thanks then wayne/.

62 GT

Hi- I have recently acquired a 62 Globetrotter down in SW Georgia & towed it up to New England last month-also, I've just registered with this forum. The one we got has some unoriginal carpeting and cabinetry and needs polishing; otherwise, it tows nicely- haven't gotten around to trying out appliances/plumbing etc.Hoping to get it 1/2way presentable this month and drag it up to Burlington to shop for goodies, compare rigs, etc. at the WBCCI International. Also hoping to post some photos as I progress with this 'project'; oh yeah, plan to attend Dead/Willie Nelson shows and Allman Bros. campouts in early summer- see y'all there!(hahaha) CB Rollins South Amherst Massachusetts

Thats why they call me 'Shine'...

Oooh boy- I'm getting into the compounding- do an hour or two a day; seems like I've done a first pass of about a third of it in four days. Hoping to get it to where I can start actually polishing by end of the week but it kinda depends on the weather. Still trying to figure out if kitchen stuff was on the door side originally- could your order it either way? Tried out lights and a/c but haven't tried the fridge or the range yet - leaving the plumbing for last!

A/C;Fridge

A/C is a new unit and the fridge is a replacement;the air is a roof pod deal in the rear roof vent. Yes I've been using NuVite but it smells better than it tastes...

Question 1962 19' Globetrotter, GVWR???

Hi you guys, enjoyed your chat!
Say, just bought one here in Minneapolis. Not sure we have the right tow vehicle for our Globetrotter? Do you know how much yours weigh? And, Wayne, how do I get an owners manual?
Looking forward to more chatting!
Many thanks in advance for your help!!!
Elizabeth
