Up to our eyeballs in aluminum

This is our introduction.
We found a gutted '66 Overlander in Tennessee in 2006. We never had an Airstream before, but our daughter and son-in-law did and offered to help us get started. The trailer was finished in May of last year, turned out beautifully, and we took her on the road. Had a great time, but my retired husband missed the fun of working on a trailer, so we bought another '66 Overlander on Ebay and pulled it home from Indiana last fall. Before we could get started on that one, friends asked us to refurbish a '64 Globetrotter for them. So that has been the project since October.
There are 3 Airstreams in our driveway and an old Layton parked in a shed behind the garage. We've been told if we add one more, we will have to get a license to run a trailer park!

Welcome! Sounds like you've got plenty of restoration stories to share. Let us see some pictures of your Airstream projects when you get a chance.
