Bought our first airstream 1963 Bambi

Hi Everyone,

Totally new to airstreams. Just put a deposit on a 1963 airstream bambi. It is still 99% original and in pretty good shape. Not much needs to be done to it.

Some things you should still check out.

All the exterior gaskets, on the doors and windows.

Axle condition, as torsion axle rubber rods only last about 25 years.

If the furnace and water heater are original, they both should be replaced.

The original water system was pressurized. That should be changed
to "demand".

Update the exterior lights to LED's.

The valves on steel LPG tanks would be way out of date, and should be replaced, ot replace the tanks.
