Just bought our 'new' 69 Safari. She needs a LOT of work so I thought I'd start the p

Drove from Fort Worth to Memphis w my dad, aka Pops, to pick her up this weekend. Here are the pics from our trip. We didn't have any trouble towing her back either. She needs new axles, windows, floor, and underneath in the back. Will add more pictures later of the inside and outside. Super excited tho to be a part of the airstream family!!!

Picture Update

Here are some additional pictures... These are the ones that I had to go off when I drove the 500 miles to Memphis from Fort Worth to purchase it. It was in basically the same shape as the pictures and as he described it EXCEPT all but two of the windows were cheap flimsy clear plexiglass that have obviously been leaking for a while. Luckily the two windows that are original are the two front side curved ones that are the most expensive to replace!

It looks like it is in pretty good shape.

Hey I have your twin, right down to the original upholstery :-) just pulling up the floor now to see what rot I likely have in the front end. Unfortunately mine was a wing window that was broken. PO (previous owner) had done a crappy patch by the front door where there is water damage. I pulled it up and it looks like we may have a full aluminum floor under the plywood

Sure You can have it. Let me check to make sure that I still have it, but I think I still have it stashed away.

My 1969 Safari inspection door to access the pilot light for my refrigerator is different.

Looks nearly like my trailer except mine has the dinette in the front instead of the couch - looks more like Thesignlady's above. Mine even has the same yellow countertop and still has the original carpet in it. Ours has been family owned since new in 1969 but after sitting for 30 years (fortunately in the dry climate of New Mexico) not surprisingly it did need significant work done to the functioning systems including A/C, water heater, water supply system (copper replaced with pec), univolt unit, battery, water pump, furnace, dump valve (what a nighmare) etc. etc. etc.. Oddly enough the original Dometic refrigerator works great on both elec & gas. The frame is straight, axle is good, re-packed the bearings but the brakes are good, the body is straight and has full integrity (no leaks), and it is with new operating systems in place is very useable. The refer inspection door is the same on mine. The TV antennae is farther forward on mine than yours probably because yours does not appear to have the A/C. Bottom line: You will enjoy the Safari for many years to come!
