Good luck, Vermonter. I'm travelling till April but reside in Burlington with a 91 so not sure where you are but would be glad to share ideas. I went to Phoenix with a one-way plane ticket and brought mine back. Lots done over the last 3 years but I found help on most projects through this site. I've had 2 Airstreams, 65 Caravelle and 61 Tradewind but just love this B van.

Yes, Good Luck!
We located ours and it took more than five years to convince the owners to sell. It sat in the same barn since 2007 and we pulled it out just last year. However, since sitting idle is not the best thing, we had to totally rebuild the brakes, hot water, AC, toilet, and other items. Seems rodents had found their way through the power plug hole, so we did the flooring and interior too (which was the selling point for my wife). Tires looked good, with lots of tread, but on the way home the RR unraveled and took out part of the running board and RR Quarter panel. Finished driving home on the steel belt. Wheels were beyond repair. In a nutshell, our repairs and modifications were quite spendy, but we'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Lucy, this may too late now that you have committed to another but this one just listed looks interesting for $4000.

The interiors definitely different with the airstream emblems im betting it is ether one of the very first lower than 00036 or a clone.
