Up to our eyeballs in aluminum

This is our introduction.
We found a gutted '66 Overlander in Tennessee in 2006. We never had an Airstream before, but our daughter and son-in-law did and offered to help us get started. The trailer was finished in May of last year, turned out beautifully, and we took her on the road. Had a great time, but my retired husband missed the fun of working on a trailer, so we bought another '66 Overlander on Ebay and pulled it home from Indiana last fall. Before we could get started on that one, friends asked us to refurbish a '64 Globetrotter for them. So that has been the project since October.
There are 3 Airstreams in our driveway and an old Layton parked in a shed behind the garage. We've been told if we add one more, we will have to get a license to run a trailer park!

Welcome, it sounds as if you could go into the rebuild business!
It's nice to have you here,

Welcome! Sounds like you've got plenty of restoration stories to share. Let us see some pictures of your Airstream projects when you get a chance.
