Hello from Java, NY

Hello all,

I am in the process of buying our first Airstream. It is a 1971 31' Sovereign in need of some work, some dents to pop, the rear bumper needs to be rebuilt, a 1' hole was ripped into the underside, etc. Comes home tomorrow, from only 7 miles away so no big deal.

We live in Western New York in Java. I recently converted a school bus into an RV but the wife isn't too keen on driving long distances in it, also at 6'1" I bump my head a lot. So since that project was complete, we found this project to keep me busy for another year or so.

During the day I am a digital design engineer for a defense contractor in Buffalo, NY. At nights and on the weekends I am hanging out with our 2 sons (almost 3 and almost 1) or in the wood shop where I run a small wood working business on the side.

We need a camper for camping (duh), traveling to craft shows where the business goes and the annual family reunion.

I look forward to getting lots of help and meeting others like me who don't mind taking a piece of history and working to restore it and keep it moving and running for as long as possible.

Welcome Rich,

You will find answer to every question you could possible have here. You won't have a problem that hasn't been solved. Lots of sillyness and probably some of the nicest people you could every meet. All for the love of an AIrstream.
