New from WV - 67 Overlander

Hi,
My name is Jonnie. I have a 1967 airstream overlander. Over all in decent shape needs some restoration. Currently the ac broke and I need to replace it but don't know what type ac It has. I can't find the btu's or a name only national union electric corp and a part no. Also the oven doesn't work these are the orginal parts. The refridge works on electric but not gas so we have to work on that. Any suggestions would be of great help. Mean while we still take it on the rode. Jonnie

Welcome to Airstreaming.

Before you start any "major overhaul' you should first, find out everything that may be wrong with it.

In that way you can address the issues depending on your time and budget.

Generally speaking, the largest and safety issues are those that you should consider doing first.

Some suggestions are:

Check all the exterior gaskets. If the gaskets are old, they will leak.

What is the condition of the roof vent covers and their gaskets?

Does the trailer have rear end separation?

Keeping rain out of the trailer, is very important.

What LPG pressure does the trailer have and are there any LPG leaks.

What's the condition of the axles? The following article will help you with that question.

Dura Torque Axle

Are all the windows glass?

Front "rockguard," which is the cover over the front window.

Missing exterior rivets.

Any damage to the shell that could cause water leaks.

Then you can address the interior issues.

Some of them are:

Is the bulkhead between the galley and bedroom punched thru the ceiling?

Are any of the bulkheads pulled away from the wall extrusions?

Next, you can attack the appliance issues.

What brand AC do you have. The original was made by Armstrong. It was a good AC, but like anything else, it could have failed. But it's usual failures are easy to repair without spending a small fortune. Post a photo of it if you can.

As you get into the trailer problems, you will have many more questions, probably lots of them.

You picked the best place in the world, to find answers to your questions, based on facts, and sometimes opinions.

The safe way, is if your not sure, is to contact an Airstream repair center that has a known good reputation, and/or ask questions here.

Andy
