The Burrito is the name given to our recently purchased (Oct 09') Airstream. It is a 1977 31' Sovereign International. We are huge fans of Chipotle and as such we immediately noticed the resemblance of the trailer to the icon of the Chipotle chain and so she became to be know as The Burrito. The blog will document the restoration of our beloved trailer.

Deconstruction Week Two

Posted 04-25-2010 at 07:10 PM by MDSilverado (Building the Perfect Burrito)

Way behind in posting to my blog, so I am attempting to catch up. Another weekend of deconstruction. I am still very pleased with the looks of the subfloor. The bolts that are used to fasten to the subfloor are placed in a very random pattern but the plywood seems solid. The seams aren’t always even but I think they are workable…especially if I use a floating floor.

Deconstruction - Weekend One (10-19-2009)

OK I have to admit there was a few moments of sheer panic right after Burrito was first delivered to my driveway. I stood there contemplating "what was I thinking when I bought this thing?" Adding to that, soon after the PO un-hitched his truck from Burrito I tried to hook mine up to raise the tongue a bit and nothing! No electric anywhere coming through the seven pin cord. No lights, no electric tongue jack...nothing! After several days of research I found the problem was in fact my truck....

Finding...The Burrito

Posted 12-27-2009 at 08:18 AM by MDSilverado (Building the Perfect Burrito)

I looked at only four Airstreams before finding "The Burrito". As it turned out it was the least expensive and the closest to home. I making the deal with the previous owner In was able to persuade him into towing her home for me. I was very apprehensive about towing a trailer for which I have no idea of the condition of the running gear. The brakes were not working reliably so I was glad he was towing.
