Every step of renovation I am learning from this site, so I hope I can add a few tips of my own by the time I get done.
Before you destroy the whole trailer over a few beers, you might want to do some research into how they are built & why they are built that way. There is a ton of information located here on the Forums & on The Vintage Airstream Podcast | Vintage Trailer Restoration
. There is also a large show/rally (alumaflamingo) that'll be going on in Sarasota, 18-24th of February that'll have an open house, a vintage area, & seminars about Airstream construction. All of these things will help you avoid costly mistakes.
