very true. is there a source for those in the states? WHen I looked for them a few years back, most suppliers were in europe.

Glad to hear you've decided to finish Stinky. And, using it as a testbed for the Liner is a great idea!

I know of a couple of folks who have used the SMEV appliances, and they went through a supplier with a store on ebay (your favorite source as I recall ).

I really like this one, seems so efficient:

2 burner SMEV Italian Cooktop, Sink, RV, Truck Camper:eBay Motors (item 170358029118 end time Aug-12-09 16:16:22 PDT)

The same seller is selling many other SMEV products.

i like it! I wonder, though if the lack of an oven would affect resale value? I would be restoring it to sell, I think. Guess I could leave room for a microwave, if nothing else.

The price isn't really all that bad, when you consider that it includes the stove, sink, faucet and cover. That's about what it would cost to buy all that independently, and you save a ton of room with this set up.

No, the price isn't bad at all given all that is included.

Personally, I love my trailer's oven and wouldn't want to part with it. Microwaves just aren't the same. I'm not sure how others feel, so I don't know how it would affect resale.

SMEV has some units with ovens, but they're fairly expensive, and don't really gain you much space-savings. Interesting items to consider, anyway.

JP...would you like the vintage stove with oven from my 53 FC for this?

Like the ideas you have going here.

Airstream is the best disease. The fever escalates faster than you realize the illness is affecting you and then you are ill. You see airstreams everywhere or you are looking for them.
Best part the airstreamers on this forum who are always there to help! or encourage the disease.

Thanks for the offer, Steve! Do you have any pics of it? I think I still have the original princess somewhere around here. Gotta start digging through piles of stuff I haven't dug through in years! Literally!

no, I haven't forgotten her! I'm gearing up to get the interior walls in her this winter, in fact! In the meantime, I'm ALMOST done stripping it down. The plan is to do the interior (including the endcaps this time) out of Birch, in which case, these fiberglass turtle shells will have to go. I'm gonna save them until I get everything in, though. You NEVER know! Plus, the ease of painting Zolatone is awfully tempting, compared to sealing and finishing all that wood... but I'm up for a challenge.

getting restarted!

I finally found a free weekend day that WASN'T freezing in the barn, and decided to tackle the door. Here's a few close-ups of some of the problem areas:

... so while I was disassembling things, I decided to polish up the frame inside the door. I figured this would be easier now, rather than later...

... Next I sheared the new metal and used my brake to dress the edge and form the lip on the inside of the door...

Found something really cool on the back side of the door. It's like a little time capsule!
