New Owner/ New Project!

Today I fulfilled my dream to own an AS. I traded my two mid 90's jetskis and trailer for my Overlander-even trade!

She seems structurally sound and in need of some TLC.


1) Let the kid's name her
2) Find factory/User's Manuals
3) Full Inspection and component/system tests

Any constructive, supportive advice, recommendations etc. is appreciated. I will update as we progress

The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was, is lost, for none now live who remember it.

Huge congratulations on your Overlander!! We have one as well. The first time you pull into a campground full of white boxes your chest will swell. I have an original owners manual for this airstream. Pm me lets talk!

Nice looking trailer. Welcome!
Click on the link to see a picture of the Sioux River falls near my home.
Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
