Anyone stumbled on to this site?

Neat looking trailer. I wonder if they are a member on here.

I've seen this before and, I agree it's very nicely done~!
It's been on here before, that I'm certain of but...It's worth bring it up again to share with the newer members~
Amazing, the amount of A/S information floating around on the internet these days (compared to pre 1996 days).
Even more so, the growth and, success of this site`!
Great people, huge database of information stored and,some rather gifted people to pick their brains when you need an answer to a problem.

ciao

Definitely a nice trailer... and the price? Geez! If that price is obtainable, I think my trailer is a better investment than my house!

This site has kept me from tearing out my hair on many occassions! I really don't know what I would have done without all the expertise available here. I'm very mechanical, but having someone that has "been there and done that" already sure makes life (Airstreaming) easy.

Been there/done that

FINALLY found the design I was looking for for my '59 restoration. What a well done piece of work. My wife's question about the price: Is that all?

Now I know what to do with my wood stove

My college buddies thought they were pulling a cute one giving us a miniature Midget wood stove for a wedding present 38 years ago. We still have it and it has mostly been used as a stand for a flower pot. Now I have a use for it when I remodel our Airstream.

Is a wood burning stove a particularly viable proposition for an airstream. I lived in a 1948 Lundy trailer for a while, many years ago that had a stove in it, and it was great, till it burned the trailer down.. I would very much enjoy having one in my trailer, if it can be safely achieved.

Looking at the interior pictures, I'm wondering: is that the outside skin that's visible inside the front and rear end caps? It looks really cool, but is there nothing there but the skin? No insulation?

If that's the case, I guess these were really fair weather only vehicles back then!

Theo, the trailer burning down kinda speaks for itself, doesn't it? Yes, I longed for the warmth of the photos at the marinestove.com website when I first saw it. A woodstove would probably play havoc with your smoke & CO detectors. There probably isn't much safety margin with the low internal volume of a trailer.

The trailer's furnace usually has a function of forcing heated air around the water tanks, delaying freeze-up. Accessory heat of any type prevents that from occurring. An outside fire ring provides the coziness one could want -- at least in weather most of us accept for trailering.

If you're still "crazy to.." take a look at West Marine and do a search on the word heater. Select the 'ventilation' results and browse away. There's wood, there's LP, there's diesel (egads!). Putting stovepipe through the roof would be quite the custom project. Remember the rule-of-thumb about the chimney reaching three feet above any other structure within ten feet... Now I want to see that traveling down the road!

I think seasoned firewood for the fire ring would easily fit within your truck's capacity.

Hi Bob! Actually the interior skins are the same kind of aluminum as the outside, and once you remove the interior covering (paint or vinyl) they can be polished to a mirror finish. Pretty cool, huh? There's still insulation between the interior and exterior skins, as well as support ribs and room to run the various wiring.
