Just purchased my first Airstream a week ago. Picked up a 1968
26' Overlander. (For pictures go to http://vintageairstream.com/archives...er8/index.html
The P.O. has had her since 1983. I drove the Great Pumpkin (98 GMC K1500, Tangerine color) 555 miles to pick her up. Stopped at Les Schwab and had new wheels and tires put on, bearings packed and brought her home without a problem.
Now begins the restoration! I have been looking for awhile and had hoped to find a rear twin model, but couldn't pass this one up - it's a Ohio model, with a double bed. I plan on removing the "dresser" and closet and installing a twin bunk along the street side.
All appliances need replaced, not sure yet about the water heater. Plumbing is also shot. Floors appear to be solid. Bathroom is complete. Front Gaucho is still there!
I'll definitely be trolling this forum for answers as I run into the inevitible snags during the restoration process.
