Kevin...hope this trip wasn't as far as the one you made to PA. Nice Prim could accompany you on this one. Nice looking trailer. As I can figure...you have one, Prim has one, and Badit has one as well. Congratulations!

Bob

Hi Bob,

Yeah, we got too many now. I went from searching for vintage units for about 2 years to 2 vintage units within months of each other. We're cooling our jets now!

Hi Chuck,

Prim did a great shot from the back seat of the truck while we were rolling down the highway from Tucumcari. She climbed in the back seat with Bandit and I opened the rear window for her. Amazing that it was that good, but she is amazing with her pics!

Don't be envious...Someone is gonna have to polish...

Awesome trailer, and now another vintage is calling the Republic home. Kev and Prim, I am hoping to see that trailer before I leave in mid August. Heading to Pecan Park tomorrow for some tubing!

I guess I missed the threads that revealed the possibility of the selling of the "famous" '64 Globetrotter.
Would sure like to hear more of the story of why. Is it somewhere in the forum already? I searched Shari's recent posts but found no mention.
I have enjoyed the reports over the years of the fine works done on it by Shari & her husband.
Why keep a '56 over a '64 ? I think that explanation would make interesting reading, and I know that Shari has sound reasoning behind it. Hope you will share that.

Kevin & Prim Li's plans for their fleet also will be fascinating if they choose to share. Congrats to them on their acquisition.

fleet? That cracks me up! Prim's the admiral, I'm just a first mate!

No solid plans for the "fleet" yet. We may sell the '08 and focus on vintage. I hate to even think of selling Cosmo since he's all set up with everything from 16 inch rims to solar, but having 3 trailers in storage is getting a bit much.

Well, sorry about that, but Maxwell was listed in the AirForums Classifieds and his long running website was re-vamped with details of the offering. There wasn't a "For Sale" thread, as threads of that sort are not permitted to sell trailers...even "famous" ones - that's what the classifieds are for. Besides, he wasn't "For Sale" for long...less than 10 days.

As far as "why?" - soon after we bought Birdy, we knew she would take a lot of work to get to the level we wanted and we couldn't be without a trailer to camp in, so we held onto Maxwell through the duration of the restoration. It was never really our intention to be a multiple Airstream household, although, I would have loved to keep both - and had a full-time hired hand to maintain them!

But the reality of doing all the work to maintain them ourselves, we both realized we wanted to camp more and restore/maintain less - so one had to go. The decision was not easy as to which one to keep, but our lifestyle has changed in the 9-1/2 years since we first got into Airstreaming with Maxwell, in that we plan on taking longer trips rather than the "just weekends" we started off with. We really have come to enjoy the layout (full-time beds w/o sacrificing the same open layout as Maxwell's) and the extra couple of feet that Birdy has - especially on these longer outings.

So, that's it no big "reason" - we appreciate all the kind words about our work and we are thrilled to pass him on to Kevin & Prim to enjoy now ~

Happy Trails!

Shari

Maxwell is now safely tucked butt to butt with the unnamed 60 overlander....

First on the agenda is to try a window ac unit with the pexi setup from Rob & Shari. I hope I can remember how they said to fit the pieces!

He looks to be resting comfortably there - resting after the long haul to his new home!

Here's a picture Kevin...hope it helps!



I unfortunately didn't take any from the inside...but the oak piece fits in the frame behind the flange around the A/C (you can see it at the top of the A/C unit right above the rockguard arm support). The A/C flange rests on the inside of the window frame and the wood piece - gravity holds it in place. Then the long plexiglass piece fits in the groove above the wood and is held in place with the screen clips. The two smaller plexiglass pieces fit under the wood and fill the holes to the sides of the A/C and are also held in place with the screen clips. The plexiglass pieces are used just to seal up the window opening. They fit pretty tight with our A/C unit, but if yours is a different size the plexiglass may have to be recut or replaced.

Shari
