whoo Hooo! I finally took the plunge!

Hi everyone!
just wanted to stop by and say I am the proud new owner of a '64 overlander. I have actually been reading post on here for the last year, gathering information and trying not to make any mistakes if and when I ever had the guts to purchase a vintage airstream.

This site have been amazing! what a wealth of knowledge on here!
All of the information on here helped me..
1. Decide on what size trailer i was looking for
2. Condition of the trailer i was looking for (huge help here)
3. Price

I could go on and on... thank you so much for having a resource like this available. I'm going to NEED it!

This is the family's first trailer and cant wait to make her our own

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I haven't got to spend much time with her as of yet. I have checked electrical( has been rewired) plumbing is going to need some tweeking. Air works,fridge works, heater is going to need repaired. Inside is clean. I will try and get some pictures up of the inside within the next day or 2
Scheduled an appointment for next week to have brakes and all systems looked over by a professional. I'm good at repairs interior wise but not much knowledge on heating and cooling. I'm sure I will get there, just going to take some time.

the forum gave me lots of dire warnings about using my furnace. I pulled it out as one of my first moves, but I'm debating that move now. It was probably for the best.

Is the classic Chevy for show or is it your TV?

Yay for you! I'm new too- found my '63 Overlander in July after reading forever the amazing amount of information on this website. I was terrified of making a mistake but the one comment (and I would love to give credit to the author!) that convinced me to finally pull the trigger and follow my dream was this: "anything that has been made by man, can be fixed by man" (or woman!!!) Hope all goes well for you and that you will treasure every moment with your new love. Best wishes to you.

My bad for not been back since I posted a few weeks ago. So far I have taken the trailer into the shop (camping world) to get everything checked out. Gas lines leaked and 2 of the 4 brakes did not work and there were "multiple leaks in the plumbing after a pressure test. Getting brakes fixed as well as the gas leak which was near the hot water heater. I'm thinking I can tackle the plumbing with you guys help.... Please say yes....

Glad you got the brakes fixed,,, better now I bet !

How severe are leaks? It might be best to post in the "plumbing" forum to get quicker answers.
