I think it could be of help to you if you started your very own thread for the huge project you have just embarked on. Look up to the top, and over on the left side you will see a "tree" that leads to this post. If you click on the word Forums, it will open a list of all the forums that exist here.
Go down to the bottom, and there you will find a list of all the various models of Airstreams. If you click on Tradewinds, there is then a list of years of production, and if you then click on 1968
, you can then start your own thread about YOUR trailer. Give it a bit of a generic name, like "Refurbishing our '68 Tradewind 24'" (I hope you can find a better title than that!
) then post all your questions and progress reports in there.
It's obvious for other members here that you are posting, since new posts show up in the first window they see: the "portal" page, where everyone lands when they log in. And once anyone replies to your thread, every time you or anyone else writes to it, it will show up in their "Subscribed Threads" listing.
The advantage for you
is that everything is in one place, easy to refer back to, and the advantage for both you AND other readers is that the story of your trailer will be in one continuous thread, very much like a blog.
You will notice that many of the posters here do that, and find it an easy and efficient way to gather the journey that your AS will become.
