Texas Airstream Newbie

We our the proud new owners of a 1973 Overlander. So I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions as the redo has not been completed though we can and have camped in it (the first night we had it).

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new Airstream and that you camped in it the first night that you owned it.

We would love to see some photos of your Airstream.

Welcome to you and good luck on your restoration. You are at the right place for answers to questions that come up, and they will. Sure is good to have another Texan around, and fairly close to me. Maybe we'll run into each other.

Welcome to Airstreaming! Would like to extend an invitation to join up with a lot of Airstremers September 5-9 at the Texas Gulf Coast Unit of WBCCI. We are pretty close to Troup. We meet at Texas Airstream Harbor on those dates. Lots of good folks and plenty of knowledge base for your Airstream

Welcome to the forums!!! How far is Troup from Johnson City? The reason I ask is, we are having a rally/get together there the end of Sept. Would love to have you join us.

Welcome to the forums, parrothead! If you have the chance you should go to Johnson City, it's a fun crowd at that AIRForums rally. You might want to stay away from Bruce (bwoodtx) though, if you catch his virulent strain of aluminitis you'll end up buying a 2nd Airstream on your way home from the rally.

Heeeeeeyyyyyyy!! I resemble that remark. I am on a 12-step program though. Hi, I'm Bruce and I AM an alumaholic.

Bruce thinks his humor is disguising his seriously cronic Aluminitus.
I thought I had him cured ~ I thought I had him agreeing that he'd only keep & restore two of his newest trailers (the '55 Flying Cloud Whale Tale!!) and eventually the '54 Cruiser, and sell or trade all the rest. Well . . . Bruce may claim to be in some 12-step program, but . . maybe I should let him confess to a HUGE fall from that program . . . . .

I fear an intervention may be called for.
