Well we finally did it. We have been looking for a vintage airstream for several years. We found our nest egg, 1966
Safari, on ebay located in a field in Michigan...we are in California. It was represented that everything worked. Actually, practically nothing worked. Throwing reason right out the window, we bought it sight unseen. We flew to Chicago, bought a 2003 Land Rover Discovery, drove to Michigan, spent two and 1/2 days putting electric/hydrolic disc brakes on, packing the bearings etc. and we were off. Pulled like a dream. No problems on the way back to California. Now begins the fun stuff. The area under the toilet is rotted out and the porcelin toilet has dropped about four inches and seems to be free floating in the back. The battery rack is rusted out and the mounting rivets broken off. The interior light circuit works but blows fuses on a regular basis. And on it goes...Nevertheless, we are looking forward to restoring this beauty. I am sure we will spend many hours of research on this sight and thank you in advance for all the information that is already here.
