1962 Globetrotter renovation: what is this?

For my 10th anniversary, my husband bought me a beautiful project. (10 years is aluminum!) My model is curbside gaucho, front dinette. I've always wanted, but never experienced, an old AS and couldn't wait to dive in. I have many questions already, starting with what this flat electrical line is that comes from outside? It's on the street side. And also, does anyone know what this clip is for on the curbside? I have many other questions: is protocol that I post each in its respective category or can I just throw a list in a thread? Thanks.

Welcome to the forums . The flat wire is an old television antenna cable. It hooked up to a removable antenna . There may be some brackets near the outside cable where the antenna mast mounted. I am not sure about the bottom pics I can't tell where on the trailer its at.

Welcome to the Forum.
The bottom pics look like the retaining clip I had on my '67 that holds the door open. If I remember correctly there was a small rectangular loop on the edge of the door the spring loaded catch would slip into.
You have the door in a door design and I think there was a seperate catch for that as well.
Enjoy your "new" Airstream and enjoy the ride.
