I took it to Tom and he made the attachment. Did a great job. You can't tell by looking at it that it is now firmly attached. But if you run your fingers under the crossmember below the edge of the body there is a row of bolts. The price was reasonable, but not cheap. It only took a few days, but I had to wait about 4 months to get the trailer in. He is really busy.
Yup, that's totally Tom! We're going to be taking ours in probably next month for a rear-end sep fix as well in our '71 -- nothing major but wanting to get it tightened up before it starts to become a problem.

Sarah

Welcome to the Forums. Glad you went from lurker to owner. You picked a good one too. I love our 66 TW. Sounds like an active friendly group in Oklahoma.

Dan

Ok Okies, here is my next question:

Whats your favorite place in Oklahoma to take your AS. And why? Any little known places I should know about?

(keep in mind that since I'm not a native Oklahoman, there are still many places here that I have not checked out!)

We have owned Airstreams since 1981, 3 1972s, 1 1973, and currently a 1991 model. I reupholstered all of them except our current unit and made the Airstream drapes which are a pain. I have bought foam at various places but to get the big form you may have to go to a shop that supplies foam for upholsterers. Truman's Fabric and Foam Supply in Oklahoma City, Ok will have what you need and cut it for you. Their number is 405-692-0020 and their address is 10808 S. Portland Ave. They will tell you how to get there from Stillwater. In our 1972 31' model we bought a piece of form to extend the twin bed to a double bed when needed and I bought it there. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and I will try and help as we live in Edmond, OK. Congratulations on your trailer.

Hey thats quite a group! I looked you up on FB, but you pics must not be public. The AS in your profile pic is so shiny and pretty! Do you polish yourself or have it done?

Hey Thanks! I'll price foam from them as well. The only lead I've had so far has been Allied Foam in OKC.

Allied Foam
902 North Ann Arbor Avenue
Oklahoma City, OK 73127-5827
(405) 946-0384

Now at least I have three places to compare. Allied, JoAnn's, and Truman's.

We have waxed it but that is it. Waxing the Airstream took several days. When I took the pictures, the sun was shining too brightly and made it look better. It does have clear coat peeling on the upper area of the roof. It's the nicest one we have owned and we are quite proud of it. I'm glad you could see the pic in my profile as it has all disappeared for me and my isn't showing up in my posts. I had a senior moment when logging in earlier and messed up my password and that is probably what messed the whole thing up. Even my name is showing up right or that I have made previous posts.

So far, Roman Nose State Park. Has great hiking trails, horse rides(costs extra), a pool(costs extra), paddle boats(costs extra), minature golf(costs extra), natural (cold) springs, pull through full hookup sites for a decent price. Although from Boiling Springs State Park you can visit Alabaster Caverns as well. We still have a few more to check out....

Beavers Bend State Park down in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. It is beautiful there with hiking trails, campsites on the river, boating, fishing, horse back riding, etc. It is about 5 hrs from OKC but the park is beautiful and close to Broken Bow Lake. Also, my real profile is hazelgreen and not hgreen although I am trying to get that straightened out.

Ill see about changing my FB profile. The guy who did most of the work had a company in San Diego do the initial polish. Last summer, I did the whole cyclo polisher with Nuvite on it.Four days of work! It was blinding! You should see the inside! Everything on it is new. I'm really happy to have it but sometimes I lust after one of the new front bed configurations to get the queen bed and the bigger shower.

Just a quick update. I'm nearly finished with my curtains, and upholstery fabric has been purchased... I still need to order the replacement foam for the bunks and gaucho. I also moved into a new house a few weeks ago, and now Miranda has her very now barn to live in! Removall has been ordered to start stripping.

Bring on Spring!

I've been trying to get TAC (The Airstreamer's Club) stuff going on here in the OK/North TX area, without much success. Perhaps the time is approaching?
