A 64 Overlander is just not in the "must have in my collection" category. Make the most of what you have, get out on the road, and enjoy the Airstream lifestyle. Early 64 is good, it still had the earlier windows. Later in 64 the window changed for a brief(and tragic)period.
We didn't and don't really care what number it was, just thought it was cool.

We got her home on Sunday and plugged her into the power. I've got a heater going inside and a few of those hanging bag things that pull the moisture out of the air, one in the bathroom, on in the bedroom, and one over the couch. All the cushions are on their ends, as are the beds and I opened all the drawers and doors, except for the ones that lead to the missing exterior access panel (don't want animals in there if I can help it). Next is finding something that will keep rodents out of it and cleaning. I bought some Old English for the wood and have Dawn for the walls inside. So far the lights all work, except for outside (maybe a bulb) and at least one outlet works. We have not tried gas yet. The AC doesn't not work, but it wants too. Maybe the pump? I have not done anything with the water. I noticed there is one pipe, think for water, that came loose in the back under the toilet that we need to check out.

Our Suburban was great in front of it. There was no sway at 55 mph and it went around the curvy back roads great. We did feel it behind the Burb, but it was nothing to it. Once we did have to hit the brakes harder than we like and it stopped great, no trailer brakes were used either.

Janet, I see you are in E. WA. We will be in Ellensburg with the Airstream in June. Is that near you? We live off of Hwy 2 in W. WA.

Well, are there at least some Airstream get togethers in WA?

Janet, in 1964 there was a window used that that had one crank to operate the the entire thing.

The window has a wrap around frame that creates a flush look, but it is also very heavy due to using laminated glass. The weight of the window quickly strips the crank. Also due to one crank, it makes the window seal tighter on one side than the other. Yet another negative is that the seal used around the glass is no longer available.
