I was given a 1964
26ft Overlander about 3 years ago. I am a chandler and my friend thougt that I could use the Airstream to make candles in, moving it from show to show.
That was almost three years ago, and there it sits. I have no keys, I have no idea where any of the important bits are, and not much works. It has a cracked skylight and the aft/starboard floor is rotted. The oven/stove works and one of the two twin beds is in decent condition. Other than that....
I don't have the money or skills to restore it properly, but I would like to get it to the point where it is usable. Right now it is a very large paper weight.
I have so many questions.
Is there a basic guide to owning an Airstream? Something that tells where things are, how to tell if they work, and how to replace them if they don't? Is there any way to tell if this can be made road worthy or if it will always be a paper weight? Is there any way to find out what kind of vehicle I need to pull it?
I hope that I will be able to find help and camaraderie in this forum.
So... the journey begins.
