2005 Airstream Skydeck

Posted 12-11-2015 at 03:33 PM by israndy

Thinking of blogging my restore of the Skydeck, so I will take my posts from various threads and repost them here, hopefully in order. Not sure how this works, so this may be orphaned or disappear

We will get another mattress too, we have a guy in Arizona, can make any size, may have him make one slightly larger than Queen and extend the base for more sleeping space, removing one side cabinet.

How is your patio furniture? He had a guy that was gonna do it for $2500 (replacing the pads, and maybe fixing the motors) but he is now saying I should source it locally... Thinks it would be better to be artistic than cheap, not sure I agree.

I also have a bunch of annoying things that I guess I will fix as the years go by, sliding door not sliding, couch not bolted to slide, missing windshield fans, heck first thing I have to do is get a windshield TV as the one that was there is gone.

Are you going to keep the Interstate? Seems like it's new enough and you could still get much of your investment back by selling it. I was thinking of towing my Sprinter RV with the Airstream, my toad would be another RV! Could be used as a home office and as our touring vehicle while the Skydeck would be the home base. Leave it at annual flat-rate campsites while we take mini-tours of the surrounds.
