Welcome & Hello!

Welcome to the forums and hello ... almost neighbors...

My husband and I live in Northern California (Yreka) and when we go south we often go close to Yuba City.

Any questions you have will probably have some kind of answer here on the threads... try your luck at the search engine. There is often a lot of reading to find what you want... if you don't find it, post a question. You will get a response usually before the day is out!

Post pics of your project, we love pictures!!!! Before, during, after.... when you have questions about your restoration pictures really are worth 1,000 words!

Welcome again! Be sure and try to attend a forum rally ~ they are great fun! Look at the top of your screen and click on rally calendar. There is one coming up not too far away at Hat Creek (just North of Lassen) in mid August. Not too late to sign up if your trailer is ready to travel at all!

THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!! everyone who answered our question on tire size, for the 64 , our hope is to have the airstream done by sept , 06. we have been gathering parts and pieces for over a year, iam a little slow on a computer, so it may take me a few days to down load pics, but we have them from the day we brought her home, to the complet gutting job, we always said if we are going to fix up an airstream we are going to do it right. thank you everyone again for your help

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your project. Please post some pictures when you get a chance. In regards to the hub caps you can try a wanted ad here on the classified section, maybe someone has an extra set.
