First Time Airstream Owners!

My wife and I are excited to anounce our first Airstream.

A 1977 Safari Land Yacht we located north of Toronto.
The previous owners were kind enough to delivered it Satruday morning!

It's been well maintained, and doesn't appear to need anything significant.
We're planning to pull up the carpets and put down vinyl plank flooring, replace the counter top and drapes and some upholstery.

Everything works except that the fridge only works on propane. The Awning was never used and looks great.
I spent an hour in the trailer yesterday in heavy rain looking for leaks and didn't find any evidence of water, but I did notice the front roof vent doesn't close all the way.
I'm sure this will be a great adventure both owining, working on and travelling in our new toy!

Congrats on the new 'stream and welcome to the Forum!

Careful there, Valdean ... one day you are just ripping out some carpet & the next you have the shell off & are sanding the frame ...

but congrats on finding a unit that makes you so happy & thanks for joining us. looking forward to hearing all sorts of good things about your travels.
