Hi everyone! My British husband, Kim, and American me, Elizabeth, are new to owning an airstream as well as this forum. We have a 1967 26' Overlander that we are renovating in Colorado. We have 2 lovely grandsons who live in Denver with their parents, our son and daughter-in-law. We plan to use our airstream while we are in the process of building a house in Boulder County, and then for showing the British husband our wonderful national parks. We look forward to meeting you and learning about our airstream, as well as picking up tips on renovation. Elizabeth & Kim

Welcome to the forum, Elizabeth & Kim!

I noticed your user name right away: is your trailer named after the famous explorer John Franklin's ship, the HMS Resolute? I trust you are planning a better outcome for your Resolute than that suffered by Franklin's ship!

Cheers,
Aage

There are a number of things that you should make sure that they are ok.

Is the trailer protected internally from rain?

That year trailer could have rear end separation.

!973 and older Airstream axles have rubber rods that will fail due to the wrong rubber composition, as per the manufacturer. Traveling with bad axles will cause other damages to the trailer, as many others have reported on these Forums.

Welcome Elizabeth and Kim!

What part of Colorado? We have a great unit of the WBCCI here as well as the Vintage Airstream Club. Post pictures of your trailer when you get a chance as well.

thanks for the greetings! What about wood floors?

Hi, and thanks for the welcome from all of you. In answer to the question about HMS RESOLUTE, yes, we are named after the exploration ship that went looking for Franklin in 1850 & 1852. I have written a book about RESOLUTE, as well as a song that we have posted on YouTube: "Huzzah for the RESOLUTE!" You can check out more about the RESOLUTE at my website: HMS RESOLUTE - Home
We have a sailing boat named after that ship as well, but haven't named our airstream yet. Is that something that folks do? I think we may have to come up with a different name so we don't confuse ourselves!
Regarding the new Doctor Who, I am afraid we don't know yet either!
Thanks again for all the welcomes. I do have a question that someone on the forum may be able to answer: We are taking up the old, moldy carpeting in our airstream, and have seen that some folks have put in wood floors. This would be great for me, cause I have dust allergies. What I don't know is: are those wood floors in airstreams that are permanently "moored" somewhere, or do wood floors work alright in ones that are on the move?

Elizabeth,
Welcome to the forums and the wonderful world of Airstreaming.

Since you have allergies I would suggest doing the following; Wash the floor with a borax solution and then prime it with Kilz before installing your new floor covering.

There is a multitude of flooring posibilities. We installed a laminte wood floating floor in our '87 and has held up pretty good so far. Take a look at this thread for more information and ideas...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f461...ter-41785.html

Good luck and post pictures of your progress.
