whatever you do DON'T throw anything away... I made the mistake of tossing the moldy awning w/out checking for metal parts etc that could have been used/sold... there are a lot of items you might think trash & another streamer may need/want (we are fixing up our 68 safari find... LUVIT)

Think back, think hard, think about you're worst night ever being sick. Now put that night in a campground. You run for the restroom, you think you might even make it.
Someone else is already in there and the door is locked..... Now try looking for clean leaves in the dark. You would pray right then for the Airstream gods to give you your bathroom back.

I thought: "This must be the guy with the five gallon bucket of kitty litter."
Click on the link to see a picture of the Sioux River falls near my home.
Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Congrats on getting it home safe. I had the same problem around my step, and I had a local guy come weld in a fix for it. I don't know if yours is broken in a different place and needs something special, but my guy just used some stuff he had on hand to fix mine.

I don't know if this is different for different kinds of torsion bars, we'll probably need to know what kind you have exactly, but mine needed to be greased where they fit into the hitch head.
