Airstream Motorhome Interior Modifications

There are many different opinions on leaving the "classic" Motorhome interior with flower wallpaper and carpet in the bathroom, update to modern materials, or go for a full remodel. Please post your views, ideas, product finds with photos and links! Here are some shots of my 300LE with updated interior. Click image for larger version

I think Wally would be proud of what you did to your interior. Let us not make changes, only improvements...

Okay, you are making me want to throw rocks at my 310 the next time I see it. Have you already posted details about the furniture and floor?

I love the nautical theme especially the caulked teak looking flooring and the Norsap adjustable table leg. I came this close to buying the Norsap removable adjustable table leg myself but had a hard time justifing the $800+ cost.

As for mine I recovered all of the MacTac walnut with a 3M Dinoc Weave for texture, added a stainless steel covering near the stove and replaced all cabinets with custom built face frame, bottom mounted soft close drawers, painted rough sawn pine. I'm not completely done yet, but close. I have the fabric for the new couches but my upholsterer hasn't gotten to them yet.

Thanks for the compliments. The floor is Lonseal teak and holly. Still some work to do, but I like the way it came out.

Great looking work Isuzusweet! That's some classy Classic.

Sebas,

Really nice job.

I admire the fact that the original cabinets are built to last a lifetime, but struggle to "appreciate" the look of raised panel oak in my moho. It is so 70's that it drives me crazy, and there is so much of it that the idea of tearing it all out is absolutely daunting; but at least it's not formica!!
Your floor choice of the traditional yacht styled teak and holly cabin sole works really well with the existing wood tone. It ties the old and new together beautifully, and creates a nice tension between floor and ceiling. It's clean and contemporary enough to work with your new furniture (which is fantastic), and classic enough to meld into the old. Love it!!!

I owned this one for a short spell...the interior looked great, and I would not change a thing on it. The 300le may be for sale in the near future.Click image for larger version
