I fell into this hobby in 2000. Traveled up to the N Georgia area to look at cabins and such, and on the way back passed an AIRSTREAM Motorhome, a 24' model parked with a for sale sign on it. I stopped in to look and was crazy about the little bus. Riveted outside all aluminum and a retro interior that begged for new carpet and such. It was decidedly out of my price range for such a thing, but peaked my interest. After I finally found one for sale at a decent price, though a long way from my home, I became hooked on the resto process and making it totally usable for our family.
On from there to 3 Airstream Trailers since then,, and well here's the blog: Its bee a fun and rewarding experience for 17 years now

thanks. I enjoy putting up some unusual stuff I see on the web.When I began the Airstream obsession there were no web sites to refer to, man how things change. We had a small group of 7 mostly Classic Motorhome owners who chatted on a message board. This led to the Airforums beginning which is no crazy big. Most of us are still on it, 16 years later.
I remember trying to find parts for old motorcycles during the pre-web days. There just was not much out there. Today, no problem whatever finding parts for those old classic Triumphs and Harleys. Finding forums where people share their experiences and accomplishments is a real nice thing. Like this site. I am a member in a truck forum and one of the members guided Me over to here when I started posting pics. of the camper build in the off topic section. This site has saved Me from making a lot of mistakes. LOL
