Here are some shots from Friday and from today of our messy Airstream in action. Yes, it gets pretty crazy but it is the best family time ever.

That just warms my heart! A family that plays (and prays) together, certainly stays together!!! :-)

You do wonderful work, Skatiero.

Thanks for the wonderful family photos. It makes me miss the time when our kids (5) were younger.

Dan

Thanks! Here's a favorite photo of us in the 2015 Airstream brochure.

Rob has been hard at work on the Airstream finishing the punch list. He built two amazing folding tables which hang under the sofa arms. Each table is four feet long. Opened and extended, they give us 8 feet of dining table across the sofa, so we can all eat inside when necessary.

He has also finished polishing. I wish I could say I helped this go-round, but my day job has gotten in the way. We like a high lustre "factory" finish as opposed to a mirror finish. Here's the exterior now.

M.Hony, That is our 1968 Tradewind. The 86 is perfect for our family, but we wanted a small one for quick getaways for just the two of us. It's incredibly original and intact and we haven't done much to it, yet. We had planned to do something really custom but since it's such a time-capsule we aren't sure we rip out all that gorgeous wood, etc.... It's a really cool little Airstream. We will have to start a thread for that one sometime.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Keep it in good repair and roadworthy and ready to camp.
Are the curtains and upholstery in good shape?

That sure looks nice! After all of the hand polishing we did to ours last year, we have decided to take it up a notch to look at least like this. Love It!
