Hello everyone:

I am so excited about being a new member to your community.
I have been browsing the forum for quite some time now and finally,
after searching for months, I am the proud owner of a 1972 Overlander International. I guess I am not an official airstreamer until I take my first trip. I decided to join the community after reading many of the topics and saw how helpful and friendly everyone is to their fellow airstreamers. I also desperately needed to get in touch with Tammy about my curtains. By the looks of it she has come highly recommended by the community. I look forward to chatting with you and I am sure I will be asking for help in the near future.I guess my first question would be is whether or not I should try to keep the overlander as close to origional condition as possible?

Hi airdreams, Welcome! Nice you finally joined us.
Original as possible - most would probably say yes, as much as you can.
Some would say yes at all costs.
I say it's your trailer, do what fits your needs.
My impression is that most folks will leave as much as they can original, but upgrade appliances, etc. to modern standards. I think this is particularly important with the furnace or other "safety" items.
You picked a great year trailer,

Hi Airdreams,
Welcome to the group. I think you can officially call yourself an airstreamer whether you have taken the first trip or not. You have definetly taken that most important plunge- the purchase!
Good luck and this IS a great place to find. I know I have learned soooo much here in my short time. As for keeping it original, it's yours and you need to be comfortable with your choices. I am going to try to keep mine in that "era" look but upgrade the safety items and maybe add some modern conveniences that can be taken out later so as not to hurt the original feel.

I have always loved the anique decor, so I am probably going to try to keep it origional for resale vale. I probably won't part with it , but just in case. I may change the gouchos and since the carpet is aftermarket, go with laminate flooring.Thanks for your input-Ruth
