I just wanted to shout out to the members of this forum. We bought our first Airstream, a '64 Overlander, this week. We're pretty excited about it. We've gutted the entire thing and see that there's a lot of work ahead, and I hope to get some good ideas from here. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums Jessica!

'64 is a great year, we have a '64 Tradewind we picked up last spring.

You'll find answers to just about any question you can dream up on this site, it's invaluable as you go about making your "new" AS yours.

Welcome aboard! A 64, cool!

We have a 63 (although they made some big changes in the 64 model...) my husband did a frame off restoration of our trailer. Here is a link to his thread, it has lots of pictures and how-to's you might check it out!

Hope to see you on the road and camping soon! Post some pictures, we love pictures here!

Again, Welcome to the forums! Congrats on your 64!

In case you didn't think of it:

If you have gutted the entire inside... post your items in the free classifieds here! Your trash will certainly be someone's treasures! You might be surprised what folks might want ~ whether it works or not! Knobs are valuable! So are fridge parts and cupboards, drawers, etc.
