Hi. We are Bill and Jan Rapin, retired in June as art teachers in the Detroit area, and have just begun travelling in our recently aquired vintage airstream. Our trailer is completely original inside and out and we love it, but I have lots of restoration questions that I hope the forum can help me with.

A big welcome to you Bill and Jan and your little trailer too. Ask away, you'll get plenty of responses to your questions. 'Bout time to head south I would imagine. Michigan winters are no picnic.

Welcome and congrats on your status of vintage Airstream owners. They are a lot of fun to own and camp in. Be prepared for a ton of questions when you hit most campgrounds. Pictures always are greatly appreciated.

Welcome, I am also a retired Art Teacher. We have a 1963 Bambi and are presently working on a 1955 Flying cloud. Airstream seems to be a natureal transition for an Art person. Enjoy and perhaps we will see you on the road someday.

Welcome to the forums!

I'll put in my 2 cents worth... Glad to have you aboard! Ask away for questions... also try out the search button on the top blue toolbar, you will find threads that have your searched phrase or word in them... sometimes you get lots of hits, other times not so many.

This is a great place to meet folks and find answers. Also check out the rally calendar and attend one near you! You won't regret it. We have met wonderful people here!

Have a great time!
