Looking for potential

New member here from Arkansas. My six and four year old boys and I are looking for a vintage airstream with potential that we can restore together. Kind of a boys get away. Any help would be appreciated

Welcome to the forums!

All vintage Airstreams have potential. It's all a matter of time and money after that. First you need to narrow down what size and floor plan you would be happy with and go from there. A tow vehicle that is sufficient to safely pull the trailer is another consideration.

Vintage trailer come in many different levels of condition. Some are ready to go camping in and others need to have a full restoration. That may include a shell off floor replacement and possibly some frame repair. Knowing how big a job you will want to consider will help with your selection.
