Paul is doing a great job. Their attention to detail is amazing. It's going to be a knock out when done.

I dreamed of an Airstream like this for 15 years. You remember, back in the day when I first opened the doors here on Airstream Forums.

The bunk bed will be perfect for the girls. I can't wait until our 1st summer road trip with the Tradewind in tow. Hopefully we'll pass through Denver so we can stop by and say hello. You can see the Airstream and meet my precious little girls too!

I'm so excited for our future camping trips, time to make memories!

Hey, Inside Out and I live in the same foothills west of Denver. I think there are a lot of Airstream enthusiasts here in Colorado. I just haven't connected with them yet. I need to find a rally or something.

Your Trade Wind will be very special indeed.

I see from one of your photos that you have a corner above-the-floor black water tank. I'm putting in the same set up. What's the capacity and where did you get it?

Interior upholstery done. Window coverings are next followed by the countertops and then small items like door handles, knobs, etc. The whole family is beyond excited about our adventures ahead!

What a wonderful looking old Trade Wind twin. You have built a very special trailer indeed. Worth many $$$$.

Beautiful cabinet and upholstery work. Nice that you have incorporated a double door fridge into your design.

May your family have many wonderful trips in this special Airstream.

It's almost ready. We plan to go camping next month. I'm pretty excited to see this very long project finally coming to an end.

It certainly a very special trailer. Excellent interior design. I especially like the glass countertop in the galley. I've never seen one of those. Saves opening a cabinet door below it just to see where you might have put the spatula.

I especially like the curtains. Having a curtain between the sleeping quarters and living quarters is better than the standard accordion folding door. Maybe I can talk the wife into that for our trailer.

This Airstream is going to draw a lot of attention at its first Airstream rally.
