Take a look at some of the other muscle car restorations I have done. The nice thing about the switch to the Airsream is I can include the entire family. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment.

That is a really excellent point. My wife is almost as eager as I am to find and restore a vintage Airstream. She already has all kinds of plans for the decorations and details she'd like to implement. And we're both excited to raise our newborn daughter camping in it. I was raised as a tent camper and that's what my wife and I have always done as well, but I'm really loving the idea of trailer camping as our family grows.

Good luck and have fun!

Nice truck and trailer there, 'Jake! Probably a '73 judging by the clearance light placement on the front and back corners. Always possible changes toward the beginning/end of the model years.

I like the Jimmy! Great resto.
