Peter, IF YOU ARE SERIOUS, sure Id look at pulling it outta the vanity. Not sure whats involved. But if someone wanted it and I could get it out without damaging it I would try. I know I know I know, hardly anyone may be interested but you never know guys.....just trying to do my good dead for the day here......

Roughing it: When I was a kid my Dad decided he'd save money on the normal expensive family vacation in hotels.

He bought an army surplus tent, inflatable mattresses, sleeping bags, cookstove, eating and cooking implements, heavy wood and canvas folding chairs and a pile of other stuff, we headed off on vacation.... the first night couldn't find a camping spot until almost dark, it was windy and rainy, he hadn't tried putting the army tent with its wooden and metal posts together before, it collapsed in the middle of the night and we all lay under wet and clammy canvas ..... for the rest of the vacation we stayed in hotels.

Now, that's roughing it!

We went to Italy just outside of Venedig (Venezia, Venice), every summer, in a VW bug across the Alps. We stayed in a sandy campground right at the Mediterranean for 5-6 weeks with nothing but a tent and air mattresses...That's roughing it, but as a young kid, i just loved every minute of it. This is what it looks like now, I think i prefer the "roughing it" times when the beach was almost empty.




Mike, don't you know that the doorbell and the vacuum cleaner are the number one selling point of the classic Airstream? Does it have the original filter?

Bummer, the hose is worthless without the filter...
As far as I know, the Vacuum cleaner was a shortlived luxury item in the Classics. I had one in my 79 and people would turn green of envy when I presented it to them. But, it did have the original filter...

Ive never opened it up, is there a filter inside that you are talking about? I assumed it used some disposable paper filters.
