Welcome from snowy Colorado: Airstream Forums truly is an "international community" as I have enjoyed meeting people Europe, Central America, Australia, and of course Canada. Airstream travel trailers have actually caravanned around the world back in the early 1960s.
Sorry to hear about your breakdown on the "recovery mission" of your new motorhome. But I bet you will get the thing in top shape soon and enjoy many trips with it. It certainly looks nice from your photos.
We have an Airstream Forums participant from Australia who has nearly completely rebuilt a 1949 Trailwind Airstream trailer. Many of us enjoyed following along on his project. Sometimes he would calls us "you peeps". It seems like he is a master craftsman and can do anything required. You might enjoy taking a look at his "project thread" and read all about it. Here is a link to his thread.
