Help with the history of my Overlander
I bought our 73 Overlander in August 2010, through craigs list without seeing in person, all i saw was photos from the last owner who was a very nice man who was honest and genuine, I like to think i am a fair judge of character and as soon as i spoke with him i knew it would be ok. I contacted Mark Evans (airstreamguy.com) he inspected the Overlander and shipped it from Galveston, and 3 weeks later i collected from Southampton, UK. i spent around 15 months respectfully refurbishing the old girl to the way she is now, I even go an "honorable mention" in a recent Airforum photo competition, I was elated !
I have the original bill of sale,owners manual and service manual but no other history,
Which is where you members of Airforum may be able to help
The trailer serial no is I27D3-S1271
It was origionally sold to Mr Wallace B Kilner of Denver Colorado on 20th July 1973, by Youree Motor co, Twin Falls, Idaho.
The 2nd owner was David Piper, Edmond, Oklahoma.
I purchased from Jerry also from Oklahoma, He only had the AS for a short while due to ill health, but he said that when he got it it had been in dry storage for over 10 years, which has helped prolong her life and kept her in good condition.
Does anyone know either the 1st or 2nd owners ? or maybe you are still on the forum ? if so i'd love to get info and history on my Overlander or any pictures of her on travels around the USA.
Thanks for reading
