From cars to campers

Hey! New here. Looking for info. Hoping to learn some more about the "Streams". I'm a custom shop owner/operator, primarily building/repairing/customizing cars, but have recently started timkering with Airstream campers. Particularly vintage models. Started with a 59 Flying cloud (sold it before really had a chance to restore it). Moved onto a few more. Currently stripping one down inside to replace the floor. PO had a tree fall on it, tear a big hole in the roof and smashed it in almost a foot. I've already replaced the roof skins, now onto the interior.

I look forward to getting help from those more experienced than me, and also to help anyone with things I have more knowledge of.

There's all kind of help here on the Airforums. It helps to ask a specific question about a particular problem. Don't forget to include make, model, & year. Photos are the best way to get your problem diagnosed. Feel free to post photos of the repair during & after completion so others may learn. Clicking the forums tab in the upper left side of screen will bring you to the subdivided sections.
Welcome aboard.

Agree with 3 Dog. There is a pile of info laced within the 1,000's of forum pages. Spend some time searching and you can learn lots.
