Yes it is a lot of work to restore an Airstream. The rewards are many. And I challenge all you out there to let newbies know why.
In our case. We restored a 1963
Bambi going on 9 years ago. It's still going strong and we enjoy it when ever we can. We did our restoration when the forum was new. This forum and the people who are here really made it possible to complete the task.
Not only was the forum great help we made some great friends. And after almost 9 years we still get folks that come over and say "Wow what a great trailer you have.
Does it get any better? We haven't found anything so in the last 9 years.
