Congratulations on your new acquisition!

Love to see some pics when you get the chance.

Sounds like you have a long list of tasks ahead of you. Are you planning to do the work yourself, work on parts and have some parts done by others, or, do you plan to drop it off at a restorer and pick it up on the other side?

This forum has a wealth of knowledgeable souls who have learned and shared with us all about their trials, tribulations and successes. I've found it very helpful to do a 'search' for whatever I'm interested in. There are great links on the links page, too.

Here are a couple of other link sites that I have found useful:

Spirit of '76

Congratulations on your bicentennial Airstream. What length is it?

Sorry I can't offer any suggestions on where to go in Fla. for help with the work, but I'm here to commiserate with you on troubles with the '76 model anytime.

I see in your avatar you have a '66, is this the trailer you have, or do you have the '76 you are asking about? Or do you now have both? Enquiring minds want to know. Also, it makes a big difference on what advice we give you, as the two are different critters.
