Just got the family stream!

After being owned by my parents for the last 36 years, I finally took possession and ownership of my first Airstream. It is a '48 Liner 22'. The arch, and closet are original as is the sink/counter assembly, and it looks like the top layer of the bed frame. But the front benches/table and the register and original dresser are gone. All the windows are intact as the vents are still solid and not leaking.

The floor was rotten, and the center tube was literally broken about the feet inside the trailer just in front of the forward floor spar. I pulled it up onto my 20' flatbed and brought it from California to Utah, and then to my father-in-law's shop.

After stripping it down on the inside I replaced and upgraded the center tube as soon as possible and got it safe to to tow back to my house.

The best part is all the bread is still there with the other original ID plate: 1234 !

Congratulations! That's a great serial number to have. Good luck with your repairs and rehabilitation of a great piece of Airstream history - and of your family history.

I am working on getting some uploaded here, but my tablet is fighting my efforts. I built a page to drop all the photos and details of the restoration on facebook as well.

1948 Airstream Liner 22' - search facebook for this page if you can.

I'm not sure what is so different about this forum and my tablet though....

I believe you have to have a few more posts before images are allowed to be posted in the threads by the vBulletin software.

Welcome to the forum. You will find there is a very active Vintage area and even schools to help with the restoration project.

All the best.
