Hello all! I've been spending hours on these forums since last fall (there's so much info, I've never needed to post), and I'm happy to say that my wife and I bought a 1967
Safari International last month, and the hauler will be delivering it Tuesday. It has been at my cousin's (in MN) for the last few weeks, and it's headed west out to the Seattle area on a flatbed trailer (though it tows great, my cousin said.)
If anyone is interested, photos (and almost 20 minutes of video) are available at 1967 Airstream Safari "International" * FOR SALE * Minnesota * Excellent Original Condition * Polished
Lots of photos on Flickr, also.
For the past seven years, it has been used as a spare "bedroom" at a lake cabin, so it has been on 120v only. The previous owner didn't use the propane or water systems, but they were in working shape when he bought it.
I'm looking for advice or a checklist from a Safari owner on running through all the systems. I'm pretty comfortable with the running gear, and will probably see if the new Airstream dealer in Covington, WA (about 10 minutes away) will test the propane system, but as this is our first RV, I'll be learning the water and electric systems, and the basics of leveling and all that.
A couple of windows are lexan . . . I'll be on the elusive search for curved glass. It has the original axle, but it seems to have plenty of life left in the rubber torsion bars. We'll see how long it will be until I need to upgrade.
Thanks for any advice, and I'll look forward to learning from you all!
