We have two Airstreams. This 1967 Safari Twin was our first Airstream that we enjoyed for many years. I like to fix stuff and as you will see in the list of new stuff, I wanted a no-problem no-worry camper. Well, grandkids came along so we purchased a bigger 1978 Tradewind. The 1967 Safari just is not getting used so it’s time to pass it along to someone else.
