Roblayne's Folly

After resisting the urge to flog my inclination for excess extra work, my new wife and I obtained a 1958 18' California built airstream. This particular trailer sat in the same spot for over 50 years. I was amazed that both wheels rolled and the tires held air! I spent about six hours liberating the trailer from its resting place. A fence had been built around it and newer trailers semi-blocked egress. Most of the neighbors turned out to watch.

I'm thinking that's going to clean up nicely, well maybe not the trunk, but that's a sweet trailer, welcome to the forums

New wife old trailer are you into punishment or just love life that much? I think that you have a challenge there but the airstream should provide a retreat and some relax time! I am just kidding with you I as others welcome you and your spirit of adventure I can not wait to see the pictures and follow your progress!
