Do I need to save these?

I just bought a 1971 Airstream Soveriegn, I will be remodeling it, should I keep the original parts like the oven, or cabinets, will people buy these?

Of course! Many older appliances are not supported and parts are difficult or impossible to obtain. Trailer parts too. You wont get rich, but you will help us keep the breed alive.

When we redid ours and gave a lot of the original stuff away for the price of shipping to forums members. I figure I get so much help here it was nice to give something back. Someone is always looking for something.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

By all means save the original parts. There is always someone looking for some part for an Airstream. I parted out my old furnace and gave a fellow the gas valve, just had him pay the shipping. I had folks give me stuff so I figured I could return the favor. Of course selling the stuff you don't need will help offset the cost of the new stuff (which adds up in a hurry)
