Your photos are inspiring, since we face a bathroom facelift in our tradewinds.. Is this paint? Would be grateful for any tips...
Also..since your AS is close to the age of ours... Does the back of the sofa have any support brackets? I suspect our AS is missing them... If possible, could you send a photo of the rear of the sofa & wall ?

Thank you , and thank you for the photos of the renovation !

nice work!

OK, all these pics of redone bath fixtures have me in awe! My question is, was the original color of the bathrooms (in my case 1973 Tradewind) bright white, as I see in the pics, or was it a more off-white? MPJ

I know this is an old thread, but I am curious about how brittle your shower was when you did this? We have a 75 Trade Wind that we are getting ready to pull the bathroom out. I am trying to decide about building a new shower all together or trying to reface the old. I am just a bit worried about putting a 37 year old plastic shower back in unless I can get some reassurance. It sure would be cheaper to refurbish!

i was thinking it was fiberglass / but i had no problem / not brittle at all / i sold the airstream over a year ago / but had no problem with it / i cleaned it / primed it / painted it / wet sanded it / then painted it again / it turned out really good i think /

Thanks. I went and looked at it this weekend (it is at a shop being worked on) and it did seem more like fiberglass than plastic. I was remembering the walls being more plasticky. I appreciate the response.

We painted ours with automotive paint that you use to paint urethane bumpers etc. with. Is your aluminum trim still in good shape? Feel free to email me. I have pics of our remodel. We have a 74 tradewind. Chasingchrome@hotmail.com
