Hi everyone! My wife and I just received a hand me down from my father In Law...1973 Excella 500. She’s a ‘Beaut and will need a ton of work. Glad we are able to pull from this forum for guidance and how to’s. We are both extremely excited and ready to spend the next two+ years getting it ready. The picture is rotated....I’ve read about this somewhere in here....

Welcome to Airstream ownership. Pull info from the forums. You have a great project to plan out. Take a lot of pictures, donít throw anything away, and like Mr. Byam said, donít make changes, make improvements. Get a game plan and think ahead. Good luck on your project. Bubba
