My wife and I bought a 1967
28" Ambassador to restore it. I hope to restore it in better condition than original with updated appliances and systems. After moving the Airstream from Montana to Arizona I noticed a riple in the aluminum just behind the rear wheel. I did some research and found that often the longer older airstreams can have a problem with frame separation due to driving around with full gray or black water tanks causing the frame of the Airstream to break at or behind the rear axle. Im not sure if this is the case on mine, but either way I want to replace or reinforce the frame to ensure I have years of quality use. I have done some research on restoration companies and found MEL in California who would look at it. My questions are What Kind of price am I looking at for a restoration or replacing of frame, axle, plumbing, electrical, gas and appliances? Are there any companies that do this near Phoenix,AZ? I haven't found any yet. Maybe one in Tucson!!! I hope to get the major safety and functional sytems fixed so I can use the trailer and later do the interior myself.
