Newbies in the house

Hello everyone! We are inheriting my parents 1963 26' Overlander that I have camped in for many years. My husband wants to start refurbishing it, so I will have lots of questions later on down the line. It is in really good shape, so we have a good starting place. I hope to pick your brains for ideas when we embark on this little adventure! Thanks for having us!

Welcome to the forum, boxerluvr! You are in the right place to get all your questions answered... You can make good use of the search feature to find threads that discuss specific topics, and if you can't find the anwer you're looking for, just ask away... I am constantly amazed at the dephth of knowledge these folks have, and they are so willing to help... I have learned so much I can't tell you, and I've only been around here for a couple of months!

Happy Trails!
TB

WELCOME ABOARD!
Nothing beats bringing an old rig back into service. Sounds like you've got a head start since it's a famly camper. THat in itself makes it priceless. Don't forget to get us pictures

Happy restoration and happy camping!

Hi BoxerLuvr.

My husband and I just purchased a 63 Overlander in July and are excited to take it camping for the 1st time. We have never owned a camper before and it sounds like you have some experience with that. Our camper is in pretty good shape, but we are wanting to do some fixups. I do have one question for you. Do you have original outlets on the outside of your 63 and if so do you still have the screw on outlet cover for it. Ours looks original but is missing the outlet covers. Just curious.

Welcome to one newbie from another! We joined only a week or so ago and I love reading everyone's posts. The ideas, the shared AS love. I am just about to go out to our "new" AS with a cup of coffee and the mail, and of course, Max the dog. Just to hang out, you know? Do I have to take the phone?
Have fun with your new AS! Bambo
