1957 Overlander owners

Would be nice to start a list of Ohio and California built 1957 Overlanders. Serial number and floor plans would be especially interesting. Have seen some old posts with 1957 Overlanders, but seems some are no longer involved in the forum. I will start with mine (Ethyl). She is a 1957 California build serial # 6824. Tandem axle, seven end cap, tear drop fender wells. Seemingly built for the Southern Pacific Railroad. Does not have the rear bathroom. Very curious to find serial numbers close to mine in production.

I just purchased a '57 Overlander #6982 made in CA. I will be picking it up around Thanksgiving and would appreciate any sharing you can provide with your restoration.

We have a '57 overlander, #7131 made in Ohio. 13 panel. We call her the 'aluminum wig wam.' It did have the rear bath. We are currently in the process of renovating/restoring, so it's gutted entirely at the moment.

As you write more posts, the system assigns you increasing numbers of rivets. That's all the rivet count really means.

1957 Overlander

Hello,

I have a 1957 Overlander being refurbished right now. It had a rear bath / mid twin bunk setup and teardrop wheel well cutouts with tandem axles. Serial number is 6875.

1957 Overlander

Trying to attach some pictures. Hope they attach. She is on the right. Met a fellow airstreamer for a little camping.
