GlobeTrotters are the Goldilocks of Airstreams!

Welcome Randy.
Pound for pound and foot by foot, I haven't found a better sized Airstream than the GlobeTrotter, not too short and not too long. They fit into two end to end parking lot spaces without sticking out or taking up 7 or more parking spaces like longer units do. I get many comments on how spacious my 66' is from longer trailer owners. They tow and track nicely and have the widest choice of interior arrangements. The smooth Corning windows are of course the icing on the "porridge". I'd put my windows up to the pressure washer test (or Florida downpour) any day.
Your tub looks to be in great shape are you keeping it? My twin layout had the center shower pan which was removed by previous owners (PO's) so I had to build a new one, but it gave me the opportunity to add the 18 gal gray tank under it. How's your fridge?

Thanks Michael,
I plan on reusing the tub and as much else that can be brought back up to par, the fridge is missing so I will have to get a new one. Not sure on the direction I'll be going yet on the final interior, I will have lots of time to think about it as I work on the frame, floor & shell.

Good looking trailer! I took over 2 years on our 67 Sovereign but we have really been using and enjoying it. We left some of it stock, but changed things that made more sense for the way we use it. I put a lot of time and effort in the windows, and added drip rails too. But we have never had any leaks. Modifying the trailer didn't bother us too much, because we will probably never sell or trade up at our age, and this was basically scrap when we started. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I did ours outside too, until we started polishing, then wanted to be out of the Florida sun. Have fun!

Got the bathroom finally removed, was able to get everything out without damaging anything, The floor over the black water tank was completely rotted and the tank is cracked across the top. Hope to be able to get the interior skins off soon and see the true condition of the frame.

Kinda gross, the black water tank is about 80% full of "solids" think I'll be creamating the whole tank when I get it removed.
