Has anyone hooked two Airstreams together like a double bottom semi? Then you would have lots of room. First the 32', and then the 29'.

Very good outside shower installation. Looks like it has always been there.

The thought of double towing 2 Airstreams crossed my mind, but I would think the frames can't take the stress-

Thanks! I'm returning my cherry Allure & getting the "edge Maple". I love it! I helped my daughter put it down in her 34' Avion & it was truly a pain. It looks nice, though, & really is easy to care for (as you would know with your quiver full of children )

Hey, if we could tandem-trailer we wouldn't need to build do many bunks! if only.... But we are resigned to selling our smaller one this spring.

That's great in the edge maple allure. I keep going down to the trailer just lo look at it, I like it so much! We will be twins! Or at least our campers will be!

Thanks, Alan! We are moving rig along. Fabricating the bathroom counter and some new light fixtures right now. W e are also trying to find a stove since the one that came with it was unfortunately unsalvageable. Fun times.

We took an unexpected break from trailer renovation to go see my parents in the Shenandoah Valley. Virginia got lots of snow this week, and our young Georgians don't get to see much of that. We packed up the seven (and some airstream stuff a new friend there needed) and headed to my parents' house to sled. Before we left, though, Rob installed an automatic tank washing system he modified to hook up to the city water connection and installed the toilet. We went with a Sealand dometic porcelain 300-series toilet with an additional hand sprayer. You can see the top of the black tank washer on the floor to the left of the toilet. He also installed a panel made of 3-form to the base f the shower and hooked up the newly-silver heat supply vent cover. Still need to reinstall the freshly painted cabinets and mirrors and the new 3-form
Light fixtures we made. Also need to fabricate and install the bathroom countertop/sink/faucet.

Here are photos of the bathroom progress. You an see the tool rob made to remove the stubborn toilet flange. You an also see the back tank washer. It goes through the bathroom floor to the left of the toilet and is a spray head projecting into the black tank. Rob modified it slightly for vertical installation. The plumbing for it runs behind the toilet and out through the vanity and ends in a city water supply connection above

Glad y'all got to have fun in the snow. I took your advice on the krylon fusion. Went on well and looks great. Now I am curious to see how you will fabricate your countertop. My sink was brittle and cracking. I have still considered using the outer part as a frame and finding a flat material to cover it. It really doesn't make sense, but ease of install is a factor.
On the other hand, I have a nice oval drop in stainless sink. I have thought about getting a small cabinet or table and just cutting a hole for the sink to place in the corner. Still looking though. I really would like to get rid of that counter and that shelving thing, but not really sure how I would mount or secure or even waterproof a different set up. Hope you don't mind if I "borrow" your counter ideas.
By the way, sherwin-Williams is clearancing the Fusion in my area. Not sure if regional, or what. Worth a look if anyone is in need.

Did you paint the entire trailer with the fusion spray paint?

Yes. We own spray equipment and are very experienced painting with it, but we did not want to use regular paint of any kind. Krylon fusion is the only kind of Paint we truly trust for the long haul on the vinyl-coated aluminum as well as the ABS. After exhaustive (and exhausting!) research we ended up going the spray-can route. We did not want a brushed or rolled finish, and Krylon doesn't recommend spraying their fusion in regular sprayers. Since fusion bonds to the surface very differently than regular traditional paint does and there is no competing product we like as much, we used cans. Crazy-- but it turned out exactly the way we wanted. We LOVE Krylon Fusion.

We didn't work at all this weekend, we camped in our 29-footer instead. It was wonderful!

Thanks so much for the information. That's great to know. How many cans do you think you used?

About 45! Six coats later, we covered the "nicotan" (nicotine + tan, not our favorite color.)
