Paul, Thanks!!! I just found out from the owner that the rear one larger curved window completely is missing and the other rear one is cracked. So...I would be ecstatic if I could be able to fix both of these as I've heard they are very rare. All of you are awesome. What a wonderful group of people you are. I'm so looking forward to getting my first A/S and fixing it up! And...I'm sure this forum will be PRICELESS...as you all are! Thanks!!!

Becky

This weekend

Everyone,

I'll go over there this weekend, and see what I can get. I think this is a 1968 because of the Owners manual in it, that I have. It has the dark walnet color interior, twin beds, and rear bath. I'll check on everything everyone is asking about and go down the messages from everyone. I'll get what I can.

Rob

I know where there a junk yard International 31' too....with full length road awning, full interior, and windows. I'm going to go get stuff from that over Memorial Day weekend, as they are only open during the week.

Rob,

I sure hope you had fun and found some "goodies" over the weekend. I'm dying to know if you were able to get any of the curved windows. (Please, please?) Or the A/C. I sure wish I had been able to go, too! It's so great of you to help save all those pieces from being destroyed...and all the while help some of us, who are in dire need! Hope it was fun. Keep me posted. Thanks again!!

Becky

Rob,
What is the approximate year of the 31' Int'l? Always looking for a few parts but hard to find the older stuff.

He's not going until Memorial Day weekend.
Curved glass is almost extinct and when found is very pricey. Most people opt for the Lexan /Acrylite replacements.

This weekend

Well, thanks for all the interest in the 68 Overlander. Going to go to the International over Memorial day weekend. On Saturday, I got alot of window hardware, univolt and glass from the trailer. For those of you that contacted me, I'm going in the order of messages received. I got the curved glass from the trailer and the front straight window. Also all the window knobs, screens, and opening/closing mechanisms. How do you get out the window frames, by removing all the rivets? Also, the AC is still in it, looks like a big job to get out. I have all the doors for the twin beds that go under it (in dark walnet color), the toilet, and other misc stuff. There are still all the cupboard doors, closet doors, etc. No dinette in it. Kitchen sink is there, the three burner dometic and furnace are in it. The oven is there too, as well as the systems monitor. PM me if interested in any of it. Right now, the windows are all spoken for. The door and screen door are in good shape too. Let me know. All in all, I had a blast this past saturday getting the things. I have the trays / shelves that are under the sink. I even have the "AIRSTREAM" front letters too.

Getting there

Hello, well it's been alot of fun hunting on the 1968 Overlander. Got all the glass and screens, and it's all accounted for - Rich and Becky - Enjoy! The window hardware is going as is one front window track. I have the front A I R S T R E A M letters, curtain tracks, toilet (sealand porcelain), gas lamp (green), burner tops (three dometic long type top), door with screen and hinge, rear bumper cover, and a fresh water tank filler cap. Does anyone need these? Here to help. I did not make it to the other junk yard for the '76 International, as it is about 3.5 hours away. Is anyone near Florence, SC?

Rob

Overlander Junk Yard find!

Hi Rob. I'm still "bumperless" in San Antonio! If you are willing to ship it to me I would greatly appreciate it. PM me with details and I will be happy to cover all your costs, etc. Have a great Memorial Day.

Rob - I know this is kind late...... My husband is working on the windows of our 1968 Overlander. He needs the crank out window "grabbers" that fit in the frame (does that make sense?). Also, if the Airstream letters are still available, I would like, them.

Thumbs up What A Great Guy!!!

Rob,

I wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH, for helping me and so many others out with our "Goodies"! I truly appreciate your time and effort involved! Please post a list of the parts you need here for your '65 Caravel, and I will do my utmost to help find them for you! (I'm sure others on this wonderful forum, would be willing to do the same). You truly are a GREAT guy!
]
This is my first Airstream, and I'm so glad you all are such a top notch group of people! I'm looking forward to meeting some of you in person at the rallies.
THANKS, again! Without you...my new "Roadrunner" wouldn't be stylin'! We're both so happy!

Becky
(Proud owner of her first Airstream!)
