Todd, et al.,
Our '70 Safari rear end was dragging the ground from frame rust under the rear bath. I too did not have the time or shop resources to do the job right. Searching the 'net last summer and fall, I discovered Welcome To*Airstream & RV Restoration
in North Georgia. After looking at his work pages and talking on the phone, he was the one. We were dragging the rear bumper by the time we got the AS to his home in Dalton, GA. About a 5 hour run from Asheville, NC.
Gary is just about as down-home in N. Georgia as you can get. He is not cheap, but he is committed to doing a good clean job. He works hard and only does one project at a time. His experience in working with AS is what sold me on him.

We brought her home just before Christmas, and I've been finishing the water system, re-laying carpet, putting the bed frames back in, chasing leaks, (you know, doing the fun stuff) and hope to roll in about a week.
