New 1961 Airstream Owners

Hello everyone! Neighbor Lady here. My husband and I just purchased our first Airstream, a 1961 Overlander. We have a lot to figure out but we are VERY excited to have her and to be a part of the Airstream community!

Welcome, NeighborLady! And that's how you'll feel here on the Airforum, like a neighbor to all. What a great find you've made with your '61. You'll discover many discussions on all kinds of vintage issues using the search feature at the top of the page. We all love seeing pictures of new-to-the-forum Airstreams, so show off, once you find the time ~G

Welcome to the forums NeighborLady! We also have a '61 Overlander. We've owned it for about two years. There's a lot of information here about vintage models. Please do not hesitate to ask ANY question.

1961 Overlander

Thanks for the warm welcome. We're slowly uncovering what works and what doesn't. We're excited about the original stove still working. Not sure about the original Dometic. Don has started the polishing and what fun that is! I'm been tasked to tackle the inside cleaning. The dogs, Riley and Lucy, already feel at home. I think they are ready to hit the road!
