Just finished a very nice Thanksgiving dinner with our Children and Grand Children.

We purchased the LivinLite CampLite TT because it's mostly aluminum and our's has painted aluminum skins for interior/exterior walls, too. The walls and ceiling have aluminum tube frames welded together with insulation laminated between the skins & tube frames. It's a very rugged camper. Our 1500lb 2010 CampLite 11RD (11' long box) was one of the early "basic" travel trailers built by LivinLite. It's not aerodynamic and later models have a rounded front with less wind resistance. We leave the dinette down 100% of the time set up as a 60X80" bed with a memory foam mattress. It has a roof mount 13,500BTU AC and can be very cold during hot weather, if someone needs to be refrigerated. We call it our aluminum tent with heating and cooling.

We want to move up to a larger TT. Have been reading threads about wood floor repairs on Airstreams, and considering a 19 to 25' Vintage project with the goal of installing an aluminum floor. Talked to one vintage Airstream rebuilder, but would like to give it a go myself. Saw some good ideas earlier in this thread, so this is a good place to be with a project.

Since I've liked airplanes for a long time, appreciated the first Airstream I saw going down the highway. Could move up to a larger & better equipped CampLite TT compared to the 11RD, but Airstreams are beautiful travel trailers.
