First time renovating

Hi there,

So I bought an airstream yesterday. I'm launching myself into renovating it to turn it in to my permanent home on the road. This my first trailer and first renovation project so I know I'll have lots of question.

Be careful changing too much until you can use it a few times. Sometimes what seems like a good idea doesn't relate to how it might actually work under use on the road.

Awesome! Welcome. That is a nice looking Airstream. Definitely camp in it before you start changing things if you can. Nice to have some experience with what you like and what you don't. We didn't have that option because ours was in really rough shape when we bought it. We'd love to see interior pictures if you get a chance.

Nice looking '68. I own two '68s and have taken one of them completely apart and am currently in the process of putting it back together. Happy to answer questions here on the forums or via phone.

Looks like a very nice Tradewind or Overlander. You will love the storage space in this model. We have had ours for 7 years now. Been camping in it and making continuous improvements along the way. Enjoy the journey and welcome to airforums.

Here is my thread, which records my efforts as a complete neophyte to Airstream renovation.
