OK yet an other camping season is here.
Started to upgrade the Gaucho. I am adding lags to the pull out section. I have found that my ummm weight has pulled out the hinges when getting in and out of bed. Anyway, when I was removing the cushion, I hear the fabric tearing in a lot of different places.....

Long story short. We have fabric and the sewing machine is humming. Found some cool fabric. Will post pictures later. We (yes I am helping) are working with a dead line. The Midwest Rally is in a week and a half.

Hi Ted.
Necessity is the mother of all perspiration.
Oops. Better not talk so loud. I'm not quite ready either.

Tom.

Sorry..... I posted pictures on an upholstery thread..
I will repost here.

This is the end of this tread. I picked up a near mint body 1968 Overlander. The interior of this one will go to finish the 1968 as it has no interior.
I will then pull any useful parts to sell off to help finance this project.
Then I will cut up the aluminum for scrap for the same reasons...keep this project in the black.

Sorry, but it was just too good of a opportunity to pass on. This way a it is a win win for the Airstream community.

I can not believe that I have been using this trailer for three years!!! I just fixed the rear end separation issue. The frame on the curb side dropped about 2 inches over this summer of traveling. I used service bulletin #146 as a guide for the fix. I have to say that the 1 1/2 inch width is too big. I would recommend using about 1 1/4 inch. Still have 2 more trips this season. I believe that I have but about 800 miles on the old gal this year!!
