Beautiful work, Tom. I'm sure you're going to enjoy travelling in it.

Outstanding!

Tom, your trailer looks incredible! The LED lights really set it off.

How about you come stateside for awhile and help me rivet my airplane together? Then you can take the ST1100 and I'll take my V-Rod and we'll go for a ride

Really, you have done very good work. You should be most proud!

Take care,

This weekend I installed the windows and the roof vent.





And this is my skyview from my pillow when I wake up in the morning

After finishing the windows I had to build a doorframe.

This trailer is the work of a true craftsman. Well done. And we also have to admire your ability to think about solutions, like the stainless ball for the corners and the lasagna pan !

Dare I say it....I think Tom's craftsmanship may be better than Airstream's

Very, very nice!

Tom, if you are an ICA member (International Caravan Association) and come with your trailer to the U.S. or Canada, you will be welcomed to participate in any and all WBCCI events. International Caravanning Association (ICA)
All ICA members are more than welcome to attend WBCCI rallies and caravans. One requirement is that the trailer must meet U.S. safety standards.

WBCCI Bylaws as outlined in Sect. 12 state:
":C. The International Executive Committee may authorize members of overseas caravan clubs, traveling in recreational vehicles not manufactured by Airstream, Inc. To, upon the payment of the required caravan fees, participate in a national caravan of the international club with all the rights and privileges of members of the international club participating in such a national caravan. (1/17/97) "

The Washington D.C. Unit, and others would love to have you travel and camp with them. Jim Elmlinger, WBCCI # 3296, is the International Relations Chairman, and works hard promoting exchanges between our Club and the ICA.

Take care, caravan and travel far, wide and well.

Man - if this isn't the spirit of Airstream, I don't know what is. This guy should be given honorary membership and some big red letters! :-)

After sealing with sikaflex between frame and skin I riveted all together.




Time to sleep - midnight after a long day !
