Looks good. A perfect fixer upper. A few years ago, I helped a friend of mine do a few things to a 55 Safari. Good luck and start a renovation thread so we can follow along.

Welcome to the vintage Airstream hobby from Colorado. You're going to have a great time renovating your Safari. I hope to follow along with your project thread. I very much enjoy the hobby and think you will too.

MustangGuy: I'm a sports car guy too. Especially British sports cars. My very first automobile 55 years ago was an '64 Austin Healey 3000. Then MGA, MGB, Healey Bugeye Sprite, Lotus Europa, Jaguar XKE. I've had a lot of them.

But this is an Airstream Forums. I thought I would show you some photos of my 1966 Trade Wind 24' which was my first project trailer. It is the next model size longer than yours. It is below Bubba L's beautiful Safari, but each of us has different skill levels. At least mine shows you that an old Airstream trailer can be made very functional again given enough time and money.

Looks like she weathered the trip. Nice to see the Europe chapter grow. You'll have to take her to the factory so you can get a pic of here there.

Thanks David - so is this an original Trade Wind configuration?

Yes! And another dealership just opened there also.

There's an active Airstream Facebook group also.

I don't FB but just Google Airstream Europe Facebook and it comes up. There's also a WBCCI (ACI) Europe Chapter and Flag.

My Trade Wind interior floor plan was original except for the bath. I didn't like the bath layout, so I built a new one. I wanted larger waste water tanks and had to move the toilet to accommodate. It all worked out okay.
