just thought i would pop in and introduce myself...hi i'm jer..kinda feel like i'm attending some sort of online recovery group. just found this site and just from the little bit of browsing around in here i've done it looks like a great resource! i just bought a '66 caravel on e-bay and i'm chomping at the bit to dig into her and finish upgrading her and adding my personal touch. it's my first airstream...and something tells me, now that i finally have one in my hands on one, it won't be my last! right now i just can't bring myself to go out there in the sub-zero cold to work on her and it's driving me nuts! but anyway hello and i hope to be meeting some of you soon!

You should take a drive over Poncha Pass to Saguache. There is a lady there whose name is Lindy. She has been working hard on her trailer for the past few month's. Her user name here is lucymcdog. I'd bet she'd be glad to hear from you. She has a 1960 18' Traveler.
If you don't know how to find her here. Just go to the members list. There is a search button on the right, click on it then type lucymcdog in the window. There are a number of threads she has started. You could also send her a private message.

Do you pull it with the Toyota?

Welcome and congratulations on the Caravel. Hang in there it'll warm up soon.
