Nita just bought a 1958
Airstream something or other. I'm already confused about the names and the lengths. Do you measure only the body ( 15' ), or include the hitch ( 18' )? No model name seems to be associated with any of the paperwork, no name on the coach except for "AIRSTREAM" emblazoned between the stop lights below the rear window.
There are four windows and a door. I get to do the fixing: The commode flusher is rusted frozen. A.C. outlets need to be changed to grounded type. The trailer hitch socket where the ball goes is worn away and has been built up with weld but the whole assembly is welded to the frame so that is going to require professional help. There is some sort of hydraulic brake cylinder mechanism mounted above the hitch: anyone know what that is for? Service brake? Break-away/parking break?
More later as I sort out my projects.
Thanks for being here.
