My wife and I just journeyed back to near Salem, Oregon yesterday with our new '59 Overlander. I saw this one on Craigslist last week and we were both hooked.
Our primary goal was to find a nice old trailer to park in a little campsite we've developed at our place in the country. Of course now that we actually HAVE her, we are both excited to get her road and camp-worthy . What began as a search for yard-art and a neat outdoor fort/shelter has turned us into monstors, potentially.
I look forward to doing a lot of reading here, learning where to start and how far we want to go. I know that at least 4 windows need replacement, one frame needs to be found. I know we need to clean up the wheels and replace hubcaps. I know we have a lot of good cabinetry but also some scuffed material and some missing drawers and pulls. I know we have a lot of appliances that are suspect, a missing fridge, a missing toilet seat, probably leaky propane lines and corroded valves and plumbing that may or may-not leak. I know we have at least 3 areas of floor rot but have no idea where to start, but it is already a bit sketchy stepping up into the door, as it is very soft..
And I know we need to have the electrical system checked out as the original plug/pigtail assembly was not ready to go. I have a lot to learn and research. I look forward to talking and learning, though.
Here is a pic of our new beauty. Cheers!
