Posted pictures on another thread

You seem to be asking the same question on another thread. I posted pictures on the thread called Need pics of the Goucho couches-are they also beds?

My photos are from our 1969 Overlander that is closer in age to your trailer. paula

Well, I am asking the same thing about the goucho, but I am leaning towards buying something new and needed to know where to get one. and what is available.

Thanks

Are you convinced that one you are looking at is really worth it? I don't mean the price, it's as cheap as cheap can be, but there is sooo much to be done to it. Are you really ready to spend a year or two bringing it up to a reasonable standard? I mean, for example, the windows are gone: have you priced them out? Woooeee!

Maybe it's time to add up all the prices you have seen and heard on here for what needs to be done to that one and then be honest with yourself: am I getting a worthy trailer, or just buying myself a new, expensive and l-e-n-g-t-h-y hobby?

There are a lot of used Airstreams out there. It can take a little time but mostly effort to find the one you really want, but I have personally found that it's really worth it to do just that.

Just a thought. I'm only tossing that idea out, you can toss it right back in if you don't agree...

Actually, its perfect for me as far as what needs to be done. I dont buy anything done or that I cant build as my own, cars, home, ect. I am just trying to get an idea on what works inside of these. Like the couch for instance, I didnt know that the weight had much to do with it and was a consideration. I tow with a diesel dually, but I have learned to be careful and not pull the Airstream into oblivion and rattle it to death.

I would almost prefer several. One to use now, this one and one totally gutted.

I am just trying to learn a lot and ask many question, so I know how I want to do it. How much of the old, VS the new, what will work and what wont. And, how much $$$ is involved in each project.

I like projects, long and short term. I am in the middle of finishing a 67 340-6 pack dart and am doing a 67 Dodge truck to match, both Q5 turquoise. One a TOTAL 100 restoration (the dart) and the other, just a quick paint job, some new wiring and tune up. But they are a matching package deal. I have 6 more cars in line and yet I look at Airstreams. This summer I will be working on both this trailer and my daughter's 70 Belvedere. I cant stay with just oen rpoject at a time and all this while traveling back and forth to Idaho and building a 1600 sq ft pole barn and mini apartment. A small part at a time.

Remember, if you run out of projects--you die!!! and since I have so many, I will live for a long time!

Dave

Well, my friend is back and its a done deal, $1500 and I will grab it in June or so, after I get a some work done on my pole barn/ shop on the Idaho property that MUST get done this summer. It may end up being the Airstream's home while we eventually build up there.

So, now the real planning can get started now that I know its ours for sure.

Dave
