Restoring 1975 Overlander: New member


My name is takenreality. Recently I was hiking the AT from Georgia to Maine and realized I didn't need all the BS of having an apartment, rent, mortgage, or any of that. Once my knees pulled me off the trail, I bought a 27' Overlander and haven't looked back. She needs a lot of work, mostly the little things, but everything is coming along quite well. Although I would love to gab about what I have done that isn't why I visit this site.

If you have any questions about restoring your Airstream, or have run into a problem while keeping your Airstream going please let me know. I am an experienced electrician, plumber, and mechanic but do none of those trades professionally currently. If I can help you with a little project I will.

Thanks for making this online community. I hope to post my site and pictures soon. Once I build some tutorials to repair the little things I will post the links.

Take care and happy RVing!
