Your bathroom, before disassemble, and the location of your panel box looks just like my 66 TW. The bath design is kind of weird, but it gives you a whole lot of room in the back end for batteries, converter, inverter and anything else you can't seem to find room for. I replaced my metal battery shelf and installed a wood shelf and two golf cart batteries.

Forgot to tell you that you have a real nice looking Overlander and a couple of really cute kids in front of it. Enjoy, they grow up much to fast.

Well I dove in and removed the shell from the trailer on my '64 Overlander. Removed a ton of rivets but they seemed to get easier as I went. Just like anything, the more you do something the better you get at it. Found the hidden rivets that were tied into the frame but I used a sharpened putty knife and separated the rivets from inside the trailer. I read that on one of the forums and it really helped out, thanks. Here are some pics from yesterdays separation of shell and trailer. When I pulled the trailer out from under the shell I thought "man they havent been apart since 1964!" I'm gonna post some pics real quick then get out there and strap the shell down and start removing the belly skins.

Wow! Just found your thread. Looks like its coming along great! Very nice looking trailer. With that starting condition and your impressive speed, you should have a very nice Overlander by next summer. :-)

And if you want it to go faster, looks like you've got some free labor available to help.

wow. you're moving along. I have the exact same Overlander you do, but mine was in a condition where I could keep everything that you can see original. The only pic I didn't get was the furnace from the outside. Would you mind getting a good pic of that for me? I am going to put a new furnace in, but make it look like the original is still there. I would have suggested things for you, but it looks like you already figured out how to take everything out. I wish I had the option of redoing my floor and skin, but as of yet, they don't need it.

Congrats on your progress!

Rob.

Greetings PaducahCat!

I am enjoying following your thread. The 1964 Overlander is my all-time favorite among Airstreams . . . but I am biased having owned mine since 1995 and having taken my first camping trip in it when it was new and I was five years old. It seems like there are getting to be enough 1964 Overlanders that we could almost have a 1964 Overlander rally . . . .

Good luck with your Overlander!

Kevin

Me too!

Thanks for documenting your work in this thread. I too have a '64 Overlander. We purchased ours in 1998, but didn't start using it until about 2003. I made some repairs, replaced the gaucho with a dinette and changed the axles, but was really just trying to make it good enough to camp in. We took it to Florida, Alaska, PEI, Maine and twice to Myrtle Beach before our four little kids became four big kids, and we bought our Sovereign to have more space. The Overlander is now sitting in storage waiting until I have time to do the kind of renovation you're doing. It's been used in a couple of film shoots in the mean time.

This thread will be great to refer to when I finally get back to working on the Overlander. By then I'm sure you'll be on the road and having the kind of adventures we had.

Yes. I have the exact same one. I guess it was just screwed to the side. I pulled mine off and have reflextec taped to the side with aluminum tape (so far have driven over14 hours and it's still the same as when i put it on). I have a replacement panel, but haven't had the time yet to rivet it on. I guess i was trying to remember how it looked when it was actually on the trailer. Mine was on with a bunch of rusty screws and silicone.

Robwok, mine was installed with screws as well and they were rusted out bad, some were even totally gone from rust.
