Finally got my Airstream!

After a few years of waiting for the "deal" I finally stumbled across one. Just picked up this 1963 Sovereign. I couldn't be happier. It's had a bit of floor work already and partially gutted. Now to let my imagination run wild and make it happen.

Welcome, now the fun begins.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Welcome to the 1963 Club :-) For your info Vintage Trailer Supply carries quite a few items for your restoration but most importantly... I have yet to install mine but I was happy to have found this
