RetroBob -- Welcome to the Forums!
That's a good picture Perry. Did you have to pad the sides between the trailer and container? I googled on 'container internal dimensions' and found the maximum width
to be 7'7" (2.33 meters).
RetroBob, we have a Forums member from Great Britain who does more of his Airstreaming in the Florida/East Coast area. It will take some serious attention and investment to find a 30 year old Airstream in ready to use condition. The following website is a comprehensive photo guide to older models: http://www.vintageairstream.com/archives/index.html
It could be possible to restore an old Airstream at your distance, but it will amaze you how much time it will take. You've found Airstream Forums, so certainly have access to a lot of information & knowledgeable folks. You'll want to spend a lot of time at the Restoration, Repair & Parts forum
. Europe issues tend to be requirements restricting width, electric incompatibility, and sewage disposal differences.
I don't believe we've seen any user reports in these Forums but there is a new Airstream Europe
venture. There would be many
Americans hoping these would be offered eventually in the States. The advantages toward smaller tow vehicles and fuel economy are appealing!
