Hey everyone,my wife and i purchased a 1970 29' international about two months ago. It needed several repairs and still needs a few more done but we are looking forward to some traveling very soon.

Greetings from Colorado. Welcome to these Forums and the vintage Airstream hobby. Our home states are so completely different. The great USA has so many nice places to visit. A vintage Airstream makes traveling very enjoyable.

Congratulations on your 70 Ambassador 29' International. I recently looked at a 79 Ambassador with a side lounge, twin bed layout that I liked. But the trailer needed too much work for me to handle (frame repair).

So I purchased a 75 Overlander 27' also International trim level. This trailer also needs repairs. My Overlander does have "rear end separation" as many of these 70s trailers have. I am repairing it right now. I enjoy working on vintage Airstreams and making them "travel ready" with a solid chassis, improved plumbing, heating, fabric goods, appliances and the like. I'm no good at "restorations" where hobbyists make their trailer new like it left the factory. Here is a photo of my trailer while I towed it home.

You'll have to post a picture of your new Ambassador soon.

David
