Glad to be a part of such a rich and enthusiastic group of folks!
I just bought my first Airstream on Monday and look forward to the endless hours of grueling labor it will take to get this baby back to her glory days. I'll be living in it part-time, out at my buddy Jim's farm, while I help raise livestock and grow some tasty vegetables.
Jim helped me buy (and tow home) a 1968 Sovereign
Land Yacht with a new fridge, working A/C, and a whole lot of unknowns.
Not in horrible shape - no visible leaks from the roof; no noticeable soft spots in the floor (well, one near the water heater); no insanely unpleasant smells; working electricity; working front door key; new tires; working brakes and lights.
But with the sweet there comes the sour - all plexiglass windows, 3 leaking; what smells like a gas leak when i turned on the tanks briefly; unknown plumbing/pipe/tank condition; unknown axle condition (but we only had to bring it about 5 miles away, and I'll be working on it here for a while.
I've been searching some threads for the past few days, but to be honest it's a little overwhelming, so I figured I'd introduce myself and hopefully you kind people can direct me towards the information I seek.
But, for now I think this is enough of an intro and I'll just post individual questions to the appropriate categories.
Thanks for all the help I'm sure to receive!
