Smile Restore Tutorial Video on youtube

Since I bought my 73' Safari 23ft about 6 month ago, have been looking for video like this and finally found it. Now I want to share with all vintage Airstream lovers.

DIY Network, Classic Rides, 1970 Airstream Overlander Land Yacht Restoration Video Series.
YouTube - kenwinning's Channel
This series has 10 episodes x 4 part = 40 video files.
I will upload those little by little.

I found this actual trailer was listed on eBay, and I begged owner to sell me a copy of DVD. Also check out DIY network web links on "About This Video" Please enjoy!

Viewed the AC install twice and glad you posted these - well - sort of. Back to square one now. The one they took out has the same interior shroud as ours does now. They put in the same unit I was considering - or also thinking about the Carrier low profile.

Two things. What happened to the drain hose? For those that have done this - did you have to tuck insulation foam between the shroud and ceiling. Their example isn't going to happen in my trailer - that was butt ugly. The Coleman shroud in it now conforms to the ceiling.... ?

Thanks again for listing these.

Thanks for posting these to YouTube, they're great! Just wondering, the last one I see is 07-01, do you have the rest?

Also, for those who are interested, the entire series will be re-airing on DIY netowrk starting March 25th at 7:00 Eastern.

Airstream Introduction, Inspection, History and Tear-Out Interior : DIY Network

But, I don't want to wait that long, so if you still plan on posting the rest of the series, I'd love to see it!

Many Thanks

I had been to the DIY site but couldnt get the videos to work. I found them on Utube last Friday night and watched all that I could find. Very Valuable info and will be watching particular segments again as I go through my restoration. God Bless you buddy. david
