Wonderful! I believe Sharon would be pleased.

I'm one of the lucky ones: My parents gifted our Airstream to us and they are both very much alive. To remember (as if we need a reminder) that our Airstream came from a much different place from New Boston, NH we display my "rents" AZ trailer plate in the "Tube".

Found stuff

In our SOB camper - Found a service report for the tow vehicle, my Brother-in-law was listed as the service tech. They live 1/2 way across the state!
In our Houseboat- The PO found out we were restoring and stopped by to ask if we ever found his lost stash, please let him know so he could re-claim it. Never found the stash but did find a search warrant with guess who's name on it...

Birdy!

Drugs and allsorts! Life is exciting!

When I got the paperwork with my trailer, there was a packing checklist from the original owner. The first item was, "remove birdy and put in cupboard above microwave". I thought about whether my PO had bought a parrott with his Airstream!
When I finally got to every corner of the Airstream I found "birdy". A 1" tall toy nestling in a collapsing wire rack which I spotted the hanger for above the galley mirror. The bottom, larger hanger keeps my teacloths for drying the dishes. But the smaller, top hanger, is pride of place for birdy out of respect for the "OO", Original Owner.

A small bag of "B.C. Bud" down in the floor cavity by the water pump. A few half smoked roaches, here and there. Hey, it's the West coast!

Well, when I removed the inside skin to get to the c-channel that holds the shell to the frame and floor, I found lots of peanut shells. Most were found in the front and in the back curbside corner. It must have been a two day job for the installer.

I wonder how long the 'peanut eater' worked at Airstream, and how many other coaches have peanut shells in their wall?

Mostly just peanut shells. However, there were a lot of them.

Do peanut shells work as insulation?

I wonder if Airstream had some kind of rule about not eating while building and he was trying to hide his peanut eating activity . .. Maybe he just thought some repair guy would get a chuckle some day if and when future repair work was being done.
