Airstream Introduction, Inspection, History and Tear-Out Interior

Episode DCLR-201

Host Kevin Tetz gives viewers a tour of our classic 27-foot 1970 Airstream travel trailer, which is road worn and dated. Then he inspects the RV systems, such as gas and electric, with certified RV technician Xavier Taylor from Camper's Corner RV Center. They find that there are many items that are not up to codes or need repair. Kevin also shares some great Airstream restoration resources including the Airstream company website, The Wally Byam Caravan Club, Airstream Forums and Airstream Life magazine. Then he takes a trip down the Airstream history road, including vintage footage and photos, factory tours, 1970's television ads and current Airstream models. Let the fun begin as the "Classic Rides" team tears out much of the interior to get started on the restoration!
