Ok, Let's get the vintage camper thread going here. This is our '68 Airstream Overlander, 26', mid-twin. We bought this on ebay in 2005 from a gentleman in North Carolina who deals in vintage Airstreams. Anyone who has ever owned a vintage camper knows they come with their own set of issues. I'll detail some of those issues later....gotta run!

I do love that Airstream Brain!

We sold our old GMC motorhome at the end of last summer but I sure miss her. We had some good times in her.

The old girl should by now be living out her new life as a rental for wedding parties and the like. The fella we sold to was going to competely over haul her engine and give her a new paint job.

A vintage camper is on my wish list too. The late fifties through early
sixties Shasta is my favorite.

Here's a couple pics lifted from VintageShastas.com. That wood paneling interior is nice!

I was following the Missouri River 340, the worlds longest river race, this past week and spotted this canned ham parked at one of the check points. Anybody ID this for me? I'm good with Airstreams, but not the other brands. Looks like they worked on the exterior some.

Here's a few Airstreams from the WBCCI rally in Springfield, MO a few years back.
