We are new to the forum and very excited to join. I hope we are welcome, even though we are restoring a 1957
Silver Streak Clipper, and not an airstream. We are anxious to get underway on our project and attend some rallies!
A little about our trailer... she is in need of a ground-up restoration. We discovered her in a barn that had kind of caved her in a bit. It was an experience just to get her out. We think she had been wedged in there since the 70's. We now have her in our back yard, and began the restoration by removing the cabinets. The floor is entirely rotted. The frame has a lot of rust. We will be removing the shell so that we can reinforce the frame, get some tanks (there are none), and do new wiring and plumbing.
We have so many questions and ideas about everything! I am learning to search the threads and photos. Please pardon any missteps we may make with forum etiquette. It is our desire to jump in with both feet, as we did with the trailer purchase, and get started learning all we can, while making as few mistakes as possible.
Our location is Napa, California, any members in our area that would like to contact us directly, we'd love to hear from you!
