Congratulations on your Airstream restoration! It looks like the family is experiencing quite a bit of fun in your "new" caravan. Do you refer to trailers as caravans in your country? I know there are other Airstreams in Europe but I'm sure your trailer is relatively uncommon.

How well does the trailer handle European roads? For instance, are the length and width a problem? It seems a bit large compared to trailers we noticed when we visited England and Germany.

I wasn't able to read some of your descriptions due to my language barrier but I presume you've changed all the systems to be compatible with local water, electric and other issues.

What do you do about other systems such as electric brakes and axles? Do those parts come the U.S.?

Please keep us informed of your travels.

Our Airstream is a 23 '' 1972 Safari Land Yacht This corresponds to the metric 7 meters. We have imported it from the United States.
All the electrics I have replaced the usual in Europe 220 volts and 12 volts.

The width (2.4 meters) of the Airstream is on Europe roads is not a problem.

The main problem presented the drawbar load. In Europe, max. 150 KG allowed. This is slightly different in USA;-).

That we solved with a new foundation.

The axles are also new and the brakes are not electrically but the usual in Europe overrun brakes. This has the advantage that we can use each vehicle.

Bigger parts as the original water tank was to be ordered in USA a problem. The delivery we had to send over Canada a unserern relatives. Smaller parts were not a problem of the direct delivery.

I'm sure you command a great deal of attention wherever you go.

Quite lovely, and I'm sure great fun for your kids.

Keep us posted on your travels and adventures in Europe.

We like pictures.
