New RV Book details the restoration of a vintage 1960 Airstream travel trailer. This restoration was completed by the host of the popular Vin- tage Airstream Podcast, now in it’s eighth year of broadcasting. Restor- ing a Dream is available in multiple formats including an interactive iBook version with photo slide shows and videos. The book is available on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and Apple iTunes.
Restoring a Dream offers a unique twist on a restoration tale. Tim tells his personal restoration story from tent camping in the California redwoods to rebuilding two vintage Airstreams. Follow Tim as he decides to sell his 1971 vintage Airstream and purchase a new larger trailer. Learn what changes his mind against buying a new trailer and why he buys one that is even older!
Tim explains what to look out for when 'going vintage', how to choose the right vintage trailer, and how to inspect it to avoid costly mistakes. Ride along as he heads out on a 2400 mile ‘recovery mission’ to pick up his 46 year-old trailer, and find out how a year-long restoration takes a vintage Airstream from a nightmare condition to a restored dream.
