Well hi thumbelina, I was worried about you. Hope all is well. Glad you still have your Globetrotter. It's seahawk time again, you'll be out watching for those things I'm sure.
Some shops aren't very well organized and loose stuff. Putting an old Airstream back together is a BIG project, especially when one is working full time. Hey, I got an idea, retire! Then you will have more time to enjoy your hobbies. I hope you can find a replacement window.
We moved to Colorado, and I spent last winter working on the son's 69 Globetrotter. I built a new dinette that makes down into a BIG sleeping space. And I will do more to it this winter. His trailer is a "boondocker" meaning it travels some pretty rough roads around here just to get to a good fishing spot or elk hunting spot. And it isn't in the greatest of shape. Heck, one of his rare square corner front windows just up and shattered last summer. He put Lexan in it for now, but I don't know what the permanent fix will be. I guess all of us use our trailers in the way that suits us, and that's just fine with me.
