well i think i have a problem

well, when do you officially have an airstream problem? is it after 2 trailers or three?
This one i can credit totally to my wife who spotted this little beauty on the side of the road with a for sale sign in her window. So we have 2 trailers now this '77 23ft Safari and the 63 thats in pieces in the back yard. She made the point that she would like to camp this year so we had better get something soon, and i couldn't argue with the price. So here we are with a new to us trailer and a whole summer to use it.
I may need some advice but i am sure you folks will come through for me.
have a great day
Norm + Gwen

Looks like the entry door is badly warped.

Congratulations!!

Hi Norm & Gwen,

Great little find! How's the interior? Updated or original?

It's always nice to have something to camp in while you're fixing up the other(s).... (Note that we have a bit of an Airstream problem ourselves)

Airstream away, and congrats!!

VERY nice.

Thats nice. You have a gem there. I always like the shorty with two axles. Better yet, (as I remember) it's one of the first with a grey water tank.

I see the door gap Andy referenced. It is fixable. But, find out why. Come South next Winter!!!

It's not a problem, you just have a big heart! ha ha! Your yard looks so picturesque. You could start some driveway camping immediately. Hopefully, we'll see you someone down the road. Have a great camping season.

Body looks great, wheel-wells show it may have new axles, but wonder where all the front Banana wrap went? Looks nice- enjoy it!

Since your wife is into it, look at it this way: WHATEVER you spend on Airstreaming is cheaper than a divorce.....

the banana wraps are in the garage, the PO replaced the floor but didn't finish the job so i have to re plumb the propane and finish the panels, and then its camping time, it should be fun i hope that the little fella is in to it, he's only 14months old

As long as you have one functioning enough to camp in, I don't see a problem

Camping? Is that what these things are for?

Since I own two, I was going to say owning 3 is a problem, until I read you cannot yet camp in #1 or #2 yet. Wife wins on this one, and no, owning 3 is not a problem!
