by Tim Shephard (the creator and host of The Vintage Airstream Podcast)

A unique twist on a restoration tale, the author 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 purchases 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 nightmare condition to a restored dream.

Tim Shephard has restored two vintage Airstreams of his own and lives in Northern California with his wife and children.
