Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by.
I'm a complete airstream newb and have thrown myself into the deep end of airstream restoration. And boy is there a learning curve.
So, my question for all those more knowledgeable. How rigid shoild the outer shell be. If you walk around the trailer, should you be able to press into the shell, watch it bend in and then come back out?
I am still trying to understand the concept of how rhe shell attaches to the frame via the subfloor so that it all has strength. But still...
How flexible should the shell be???
I have a 1972 29' Ambassafor that i have started to strip down. It has a few dents around the back which is fine with me. I will try and push them out once the inner skins are removed.
But does the whole trailer lose strength because of this???
