Excellent Resource

If you are restoring an Airstream, this is essential listening. Subscribe, buy the DVDs and get the information you need from guys that really know.

An Eye Opener

My wife and I have been considering buying an Airstream and full-timing. I feel like Tim and Colin have become trusted friends, helping me make the purchase and plan the extensive restoration. There’s a lot of great info here. I listen to each podcast multiple times. I’m sure I’ll be sending in questions in the future. -Dano
