New Owner in Iowa

Today I traded two mid 90's jetskis for an original 1972 27' Overlander. She seems structurally sound, but in need of some updating and TLC. Next is to check it all out and see what needs fixed. Pics attached

This fulfills a lifelong dream to acquire and customize my own AS!

Well, Welcome Aboard!

We have a '76 Overlander and only have had it since June, but are pleased with both the length, and the easy towing. Ours is pretty much original with everything well-maintained and we've used it twice already - from the pictures you've posted, I think you'll be pleased!

Enjoy is the primary objective! I practically live in my A/S on the weekends and love it. Spoke to the factory to find a part number for a decal on mine yesterday. Its a work of love.

welcome Blue Grass from Davenport. If you are road worthy, there are several rallies coming up over the next 3 months. It would give you the chance to meet some local streamers.
