The '57 AS Overlander was part of the "package" deal that I got in buying the '56 Overlander. Both the trailers were owned by the same family, the son owning the '57 and the father, now deceased having bought the '56 brand new. I'll be spending plenty of money and sweat equity in these two units.
Aluminum gets in your blood. Funny thing is my parents never camped. Dad took Mom to FL in a 5th wheel borrowed from me. I was bitten with the camping bug when I had graduated from high school. I borrowed money, bought a 1964 Shasta 16 SCS and the rest is history. I have owned more than 40 travel trailers, tent campers, motorhomes, and even tents, since 1979. Aluminum is addictive, and I hope for my sake, there is never a cure.
