fasteddy, from the cold country, welcome to iRV2. You can qualify to be a member of the Vintage RV Owners group...

We just put new carpet and vinyl in out 79 Silver Streak....looks like a new trailer. People keep asking what kind of Air Stream we have.....not funny to a Silver Streaker.
Love our Silver Twinke.

TXiceman, got my lesson early about telling a Silver Streak owner that they owned a nice Air Stream.

I would rather try to catch running wide open chain saws. It would be safer. LOL.

Justimagination,thank you both. I have been on a couple of other MH web sights and they were no where as welcoming or as much fun as here.

The last trailer I did needed a little wood replaced in one corner.
When I finished I had a pile of metal siding and a few appliances and cupboards and a bare frame.
I can tell you the determination came and went like the waves on a beach. I was able to supply a lot of fun to the slackers around my buddys body shop as I did it.

When I finished it the boys were bringing friends from far and wide to show them and brag that they had seen the whole thing from start to finish.

Never got a chance to use it. A young couple came by to get some body work done and offered me 4 times what it was worth. It wasn't so much the money but it just seemed that they were the ones to own it. Never saw the trailer again.

Thank you.
