my Airstream is nine years older than me


I am Rebekah I own a 1973 silver old man of a trailer. I have named him/her FaithHopeCharity. Have taken the last two years to decide how I want to remodel and see what was not falling apart. I did not gutted it as so much as it was begging me to remove her decaying parts -- like the tub that decided to crumble under my feet or the room divider that someone in her past decided to cover in tar-like-??.

But she's mine and she is going to be fixed up and rolling out to have some fun.

Wow that sounds like a good sized restoration!
Tar like? ? Is never a good thing....
Best of luck and happy travels!

Sounds like a great project, and likely a lot of history in that baby.

Well I have a 1962 Tradewind that's 23 years older than me. I love her so much. I had to redo mine. Still going but I'm having fun doing it. I named mine Agnes after my Grandmother who loved going camping. She passed this past September. Welcome to the forms. And it's great to hear another oldie but a goodie being redone. Hope to see you down the road some day.
