Smile Hello from Austria

Hi everybody,

I am new to this forum. I bought a Arstream last week but i have no clue which modell it is. Year of manufacture is 1967. Our subsidiary company bought this trailer for exhibitions. The trailer has been completly overhoulin 4 years ago. It is only a kitchen in it but nothing else. Ive I saw the trailer 4 Years ago i felt in love with it and now its mine Huahaaaa, Yippiiii. I will start to reconstruct the AS in a view weeks. Hope this forum has all informations i need. It would be nice if someone can give me a hint which modell it is and how much it is worth. If neccessary i provide some photos.

brgds

Manfred,

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your trailer!

If you have the VIN, Vehicle Identification Number, from the trailer there should be a couple people on the forums who can help you out. Even if you do not have the VIN they may be able to help you.

Wir sind hier zu heifen

Welcome dude... I lived in Berlin for a year - a long time ago. The Austrian are some serious campers. You'll have a good time with your camper. A kitchen is all you need! Although a toilet and shower really make things better.
I assure you that anything you need help with will be found here. The folks here are very capable and know what to do.

Hi,

thanks again for your informations. The very first thing for me is to get some spareparts like replacement handels for the windows because some are missing and some original rivets to repair outside holes..

Where can i get the cool blue Airstream Nameplate and the modell plate next to the door ?....

You can go to Airstream, Inc :: Home

That's the mother ship! Of course they are a little more expensive as most car dealers are, so are trailer/RV dealers.

Hallo Manfred,

herzlich willkommen im Forum und herzlichen Glückwunsch zu Deiner Caravel!!

Thats the german part of my answer, as this is an international forum, I'll switch to english... If you want send me a PM ( Private Message) we can then speak german again. If you need some spare parts call Daniel from Airstream4u in Hamburg, he might help. If you have questions send a PM or give me a call.
