Hello World, New Member '62 Globetrotter

Well, after bringing 2 Shastas (61 and 63) back from the dead, we have decided to push our luck and upgrade to a "downgraded" Airstream, ha, ha. It was abandoned in a field with an open roof vent for a few years. My oh my how that changed the subfloor.

I'll try to upload pics to this post in a bit. Having upload issues!
19ss1905 761 Maybe it is a '61 ?

not sure what takes more labor - removing paint or polishing. I see both of these activities in your future.

Yes, you have a 1961 19' Globetrotter. The serial number 19SS1905 indicates it is the 6th one built in the California plant. It was built in July 1961 (761).

Welcome Stevareeno. You are living my dream life, having done 2 Shasta's already! This diamond in the rough doesn't look as bad as I thought, judging from the outside. It is going to be such a sweet restoration. Looking forward to following and hoping you post pictures as you go. Good luck, hope what you find is so much better than you expect. )

PS Have you posted pictures of the Shasta somewhere?

First reaction was “Holy S___” But as I was studying the pictures; my mind was lining up the projects and where to start- how exciting! Love the size of it. Please keep us updated with the project and enjoy!

Also, thanks Joe for your VIN help! Wondering what digits actually gets printed on a paper title for the VIN on these.

I could send the DMV a whopper explanation but probably bets to just give them one set on numbers/letters.
Thanks!!

Pics of framing in front . Rusty but still solid

Belly pan underneath. Have to admit I’m not a fan of the underbelly and insulation thing. I would like to just get rid of it and have subfloor. It’s what our 61 and 63 Shasta’s had and it was fine. Didn’t need insulation in Wisconsin summers. The pan will undoubtedly become a critter motel unless really buttoned up!
