I have turned the corner on my son's and mine 1960
airstream and I can see light at the end of the tunnel. I am looking forward to finishing. Two trailer restorations and I am ready for a break. To my surprise my son who is on a camping trip calls me yesterday to inform me he has stumbled on to a Spartan Royal Mansion and the owner wants to sell. My son says it has no leaks and it is clean on the outside and inside (He sent me pics). It is a classic and the price is better then just great. My son may make an offer on this trailer and if the guy takes it we will have another vintage trailer come into the family. I told my boy I cannot keep it at our house. I should have given him all the reasons he should not buy it. You don't have time to work on it, we can't keep it at the house, We need to finish this 1960
, and it is to big. I didn't because there is a part of me that wants to see it as part of the collection.
This has kept me awake all night. It is 2:26 A.M. and I am looking at Spartan restorations on the internet. I could keep it on property I own until the 1960
is done. Do I really want to get involved in another restoration? I saw pics and I wish I did not. This vintage RV stuff is addicting.
I have already planned a third but I was thinking of a much smaller airstream, which is newer in years. I was thinking three total in the family so My son, daughter and my wife and we could all camp together.
What has me going on this thing is the birch looks great. My wife and I have done many restoration furniture pieces over the years. I know we could make that Birch look awesome. I have also learned how to polish these trailers. It is the other stuff that you don't see that has me worried.
OK time to see if I can get some shut eye.
