Dale - another perspective is that if you end up not liking the repair it’s a job you can easily access to redo later on down the road. Unlike the frame and subfloor it’s ok to do “good enough” on this type of work. Glad to see you chiseling away. I looking forward to doing the same.

Like atomic, I also think it is a good idea to get the trailer to a useable stage and start using it. My experience has been that many things I thought were good ideas were not. Even with using the trailer while working on it, I found I had to revisit early-on decisions with better options. And no one can really tell you what is right for your trailer but you. And you will only know your camping life style after you live it a little.

Truer words were never spoken. You can take this one to the bank!

The Tradewind has for sure taken me to bank, for sure. Just got my flooring and telescoping pedestal for the table, which will lie alongside the trailer for the time being, supplying mild inspiration for going forward.

flooring in

Made a little progress today. Big thanks to Atomic_13 for advising me to install flooring side to side rather than lengthwise.

It looks very nice indeed. You installed your floor covering like I installed my belly pan; curb to street, not hitch to bumper.

Does anyone use carpets anymore? I have an acquaintance with a 78 Sovereign that still has the original carpet in it, and it still looks pretty good to me.

Going to the bank frequently is part of the routine of the vintage Airstream hobby. My wife wishes I'd take up gardening instead. Cheaper.

Floor looks great. And the accent trim on the walls is a good compliment to it

I installed our floor in same manner, but with no specific intent. Curious to know benefit of that configuration as opposed to vertically.

Same here. Looking forward to your thoughts, and thank you for all the inspiration I get from your thread!

If I recall it correctly, Brian's (Atomic_13's) suggestion was based upon his observation that installing the flooring lengthwise made it more prone to separations at the seams. If I have misspoken, he will gently correct me, in his characteristically courteous and articulate manner.


Thank you for your kind comment, Dan. My progress thus far is more attributable to a sort of naive dogged determination more than anything else, such as talent. I'm going to get this thing done if it kills me, which is may well do, give my proclivity for involuntarily donating blood to the project on a daily basis. Yesterday I sliced my finger with a tape measure, no less.

Smile Please don't finish

Dale, Brian, David, Dan Jeremy, etc.

Please never finish. Go ahead and go camping but just keep right on working and posting. There is nothing more I enjoy than sitting down with a cup of coffee and reading about all the nice work you guys do. Soon I will start on my 66 but until then I'll just sit back and enjoy! Brian thanks for bringing you trailer home again. It makes me smile when I look out my window and see your TW sitting there!

Great work and thanks!
