wow. you're moving along. I have the exact same Overlander you do, but mine was in a condition where I could keep everything that you can see original. The only pic I didn't get was the furnace from the outside. Would you mind getting a good pic of that for me? I am going to put a new furnace in, but make it look like the original is still there. I would have suggested things for you, but it looks like you already figured out how to take everything out. I wish I had the option of redoing my floor and skin, but as of yet, they don't need it.

Congrats on your progress!

Rob.

Greetings PaducahCat!

I am enjoying following your thread. The 1964 Overlander is my all-time favorite among Airstreams . . . but I am biased having owned mine since 1995 and having taken my first camping trip in it when it was new and I was five years old. It seems like there are getting to be enough 1964 Overlanders that we could almost have a 1964 Overlander rally . . . .

Good luck with your Overlander!

Kevin

Me too!

Thanks for documenting your work in this thread. I too have a '64 Overlander. We purchased ours in 1998, but didn't start using it until about 2003. I made some repairs, replaced the gaucho with a dinette and changed the axles, but was really just trying to make it good enough to camp in. We took it to Florida, Alaska, PEI, Maine and twice to Myrtle Beach before our four little kids became four big kids, and we bought our Sovereign to have more space. The Overlander is now sitting in storage waiting until I have time to do the kind of renovation you're doing. It's been used in a couple of film shoots in the mean time.

This thread will be great to refer to when I finally get back to working on the Overlander. By then I'm sure you'll be on the road and having the kind of adventures we had.

Yes. I have the exact same one. I guess it was just screwed to the side. I pulled mine off and have reflextec taped to the side with aluminum tape (so far have driven over14 hours and it's still the same as when i put it on). I have a replacement panel, but haven't had the time yet to rivet it on. I guess i was trying to remember how it looked when it was actually on the trailer. Mine was on with a bunch of rusty screws and silicone.

Greetings PaducahCat!

I think the same band of heavy snow hit us on its way across the Ohio River to you. My '64 Overlander is also languishing below a new coating of snow . . . . .


It looks like we may be making up for our mild winter experienced last year . . .

Kevin

Hey overlander64! I meant to tell u I checked around and we have a dexter axle dealer in Paducah. They gave me a rough estimate on cost of new axles. Around 500 a piece. Didnt sound too bad to me considering that includes everything but wheels and tires, even electric brakes.he said if I wanted disc brakes that I could order a kit just as cheap as he could. He also gave me the name of an installer that will travel to your house for installation.

Yes, that is a good price . . . that is very little more than what I was quoted for axles without the hubs and drums. It looks like I am probably about a year out from the point where I will be able to get the new axles that my Overlander needs. Fortunately, I had a new axle installed on the Minuet in 2005 so it is good for traveling well into the future.

Good luck with your Overlander!

Kevin

Well I made another big step today toward the restoration. I called and talked to Colin Hyde today and ordered new axles for the '64 Overlander. Man I'm excited and what a nice guy Colin is. I called about ordering axles and he wanted to talk about other aspects of my trailer and what I was going to do in other areas. Just wanted to give him a shout out and say thanks for making that part of the process so easy and comfortable.

Someone was wintering in the underbelly. Squirrel? Who knows. The white paint I put on there when I was attempting to make some minor floor repairs til I realized how bad of shape the whole floor really was.

More pics of the frame after I removed the rotting floor. The third pic is the old black tank.

The hitch area looks pretty rough but after some cleaning with a cup brush the metal underneath is in great shape. I took all the Load leveling attachments off and sandblasted them as well. Like new.

The first two pics still has one of the old axles on it so I could transport it to the garage where I could finish up the frame cleaning, sealing, and installing of the new axles. That's my dad helping me out.

It looks like you have a "Classic" clamp-on Reese Dual Cam Sway Control Hitch. I have the same setup on my Overland and Minuet . . . I am sure that you will find it easy to configure and a joy to tow with under any conditions.

Good luck with your Overlander!
