I just got ambitious enough to stop and say Hi. I have been a member for about two years and have benifited from many of the threads and Q&A on this site. I really did not want to add my two-cents worth until I knew something. Well now I know something anyway. My wife and I purchased a 1954
Airstream off e-bay a couple of years back. A 30 ft. Soverign model that had been sitting since 1972. I got right to work on it and after pulling the shell, removing the floor and then finding a well rusted frame I bought some box steel and welded up a new one. Now there is a new frame , floor and the shell is back on. While I was at it I raised it 4 inches and installed new axels, added 52 gallons of water storage along with greywater and blackwater tanks. This is the first trailer I have rebuilt and I will try to share all the success and failure as I go. Maybe pay back some of the good advice I have gleaned from the forum in the past.
