My name is Brent, we purchased our 57 overlander, at the end of 2012. We have never had an airstream trailer. Once we saw an old one polished out, we knew this is what we wanted to do. We came from a 45 class a diesel pusher, with all the good stuff,granite counters, tile floors, washer and dryer. So we are really GLAMPERS! We are going to do a complete frame off restore, in the glamper fashion. Here is our story, and we will need lots of help along the way. We live in Las Vegas. Hope to be ready to use by 7-1-12. It was a two owner, saremento california purchase and Sacremento build. Never left the state and still has original black plate. This is our trip home from Sacremento when we purchaed it. We are thinking the name should be Calgon! Calgon, take me away.

Looks like a California build with the tear drop fender wells. I also have a 57 California Overlander. Would be nice to see some additional photos. What is your serial number. I have # 6824. Mine is just getting ready for her first rally with us.

Not aware of any built in Sacramento. Yours would have been built in Norwalk, ca. Would have been one of the last ones built, 1958 California builds started with vin 7000. Would like to see some more photos.
