My airstream 345LE

Hi everyone - just keeping you guys posted. Made it to Alaska in 7 days -- am up in Fairbanks back in June. (4400 miles and she ran like a champ)

Here is a picture of what the interior looks like after my extensive rebuild.

Also, I started a blog called The Airstream Loft Made for living well
where I will post all the pics etc. of the renovation.

What do you guys think?

Will be headed back to the lower 48 sometime in September -- would be fun to meet up with some AirForum peeps. Am near Fairbanks right now, if you want to go camping let me know!

Awesome looking! Can't wait to see more pics of the finished MH. I've always wanted to drive to Alaska.

Thanks! Yeah - it was a crazy drive for sure... got stuck in whitehorse cos of some flood damage on the road - but well worth the drive. I am actually REALLY psyched to be headed back down and do the whole PCH again..that is such a cool drive. Maybe we should have a Classic Moho outing?? Yeah - more pics will be up ASAP.

Real nice, it looks like you went all out and did an awesome job on your interior. I looked at few of your pictures on your blog, can't wait to see more.
We had a Forums Motor Home rally in 2002 at Mystics Springs RV Park in Florida and we had 7 Classic Airstream Motor Homes attending. It was a blast. Sure would be nice to pull something like that off again with many more rigs.

Austin, Texas. We are having our 10th annual Forums Rally (anyone is welcome, not just MoHO's) in Blanco, Texas in Dec.
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...2-a-93280.html
We are staying at Blanco SP and as an overflow location we use Blanco Settlement, which I read in your Blog you liked a lot during your travels.
I would not rule out any MOHO gathering in some cool locale this winter, there are quite a few real devoted MOHO owners on this forum that probably would love the idea.
Enjoy the Salmon

No worries, all will be good once they see some of the past door prices, like this one of a kind Moho tray painted by my wife catstream
