Good Afternoon from The Far North

Hi all,

Tony here. Just purchased a '74 Sovereign and am now gutting. My wife and I are recently retired and are looking forward to beginning the rebuild. Before purchasing, I 'lurked' on many forums, trying to ascertain how doable a reno would be. One of the main reasons we decided to renovate an Airstream was because of the many forums of advice and helpful folk out there.

We hope to be on the road in a year. Until then, I look forward to gleaning the wisdom of members who've gone before us and hopefully contributing some, as well.

Have a great day, all!

Welcome from Colorado: We're not from the far north, we are from the way high. Vintage Airstreams are about everywhere.

I have a 75 Overlander 27' that I am renovating into a family trailer. It had some needs like most of these old trailers, but I'm making progress. (Not so much this summer.) I like working on the Airstream. You might like reviewing my project thread linked below.

And you might consider starting a "project thread" in the Airstream Knowledge Base found toward the bottom of the Forums page. Select your model and year, and start posting progress, photos, and questions. You will find a lot of us like to follow along with your project. It's always fun to see how many dead mice you find in the belly pan area.
