Question Depart from Color Scheme

Did we MESS UP ???

Well. This is my first ever post. New member of Vintage A/S group and WBCCI.

Did we mess up, by totally redecorating the inside to a hunting cabin look? Re-upholstered couches to camo, and the bedding, and then vintage wallpaper of hunting scenes; gun racks and decor to match. The outside is camo below mid rail, and painted the mid rail to sage green. Did we ruin the value? More importantly, will we be ostracized at our first rally in May?

We're full timers, with 4 bird dogs, pullin' with full camo diesel Excursion. Livin' in big 5th wheel at various nuke job sites.

Thanks for all the info we've learned from this site.

got any pic's?

sounds cool!

do you have any photos? i always thought urban camo would look interesting, blue, black and white.

what type of bird dogs do you have? i have two golden retrievers (swamp collies) pets mostly, but they have been known to fetch a bird now and then.

value is what it is worth to you. if you were in a parking lot of airstreams it sounds like you would have no problem finding yours!

Red face Bird dogs and parking lots

John: So nice to see a reply so quickly? Being new, I must ask... should I reply off line, to such personal things as - what type bird dogs, etc???

Second ?: When I take a couple digital photos soon, how do I get them into this little window? Or do they post elsewhere?


German Shorthairs, and 2 hunt well, one is gun shy and the other is as special to us as a daughter would be. She is 'soft', and if she was in a parking lot full of airstreams she'd get loster than last years Easter egg. I hope never to be in that big a crowd. Montana is so big we can go for days without seeing anybody.

Capetown to Cairo: Do you know where I can start reading up on this possible re-creation of 1953? We are REAL interested. Carolyn in a stay-at-home dogmom, and could look into the roads, permits, turmoils etc. We just watched the cool DVD with the old home-movie caravans. Vincent Price is a jewel. Know anybody we can talk to about the caravan???

East Texans,

As long as you didn't camo the outside you should be all right. Just don't show up wearing fatigues, eating MRE's and carrying AK's, they might think you are at the wrong rally!

Whoa. JJ, is that YOU??? THE JJ of nuclear whoredom? And Deb is with you too?? What a coincidence ! !! ! I love this small world of ours.

What other Airstream secrets can you give us? More cool sites to subscribe to? I know I won't see you guys at a rally soon, BUT, we WILL stop to see you ! ! ! HOORAY. You bald headed little wheat rat. Release date here is May 16th, and should be coming right past you on about 20th. And it will possibly be evening so we'll spend the night??? Or is that a mobile home park you are in?

I guess tonight I'll borrow the company camera, just cause you and Miss RubySlipper so want to see a pic. I surprised myself the other day, when I first hooked up Excursion to AS for first time. To move it just a few yards, for company to use. I was SHOCKED how well the rig all looks together. What have we wrought. We get stopped SO often, just driving the camo Ex. Now it'll take us 3 weeks to get home ! ! ! Wal-Mart lot will never be the same. Our biggest fear is being ostrocized by some purists cause of the daparture from normal. Even our WBCCI numbers (1722) are CAMO! Our first get-together will be here at the Tennessee Rally on May 16th weekend at Chester Frost Park near Chattanooga. That will be the 'shakeout' cruise before we hit the 1900 mile road to MT. The park is 5 miles from Sequoyah plant, so I'll spend the evenings with a bunch of AS folks, none of whom we've met.

So glad you saw my post, JJ. Give Deb a hug and we'll compare EXCELLA's soon. Got many many questions. Talbot and dawg pack.

Well some of the Purists may have a problem with it but HAY, it's yours not theirs. Looking foward to seeing a picture.

I have the itch so bad to get ours out on the road! Maybe I'll throw some tires on it and head up for the may deal in TN. The head will not be usable but the rest is still in working order. Finnaly have a tow rig for her and should have the rest of the hitch soon. Then I can see yours first hand.

Ours will be "Tabasco" inside when done. We are probably changing the name from Toaster to "Chilly Pepper" since we are going with a theme.

That sound like a very fun job. I'd love to see the inside of one of those. We used to camp in Illinois Beach State Park by the now decommissioned or "mothballed" Zion Generating Facility. The building had an ominous hum about it all the time. We have an electrician here at work that used to do some minor work for them. He told me some real, real interesting stories.
