Thanks for the link, Martin, that was at the Molas lake campground just down the hill from Molas Pass. One of the most beautiful campgrounds I have ever stayed at. No hook-ups and now it has a length limitation of 23'.

my mini project, the 1996 Airstream B-190 is coming right along. New center seat vinyl and matching door panels. I kept the white vinyl of the captain chairs, just had the center cloth replaced.

A little update on the Airstream jacket..
Been staying in the Airstream trailer in an RV Park for almost 2 month now, while working on a historical home in San Marcos, Texas.
My Airstream Bvan was parked at the jobsite, for our pup and coffeebreaks.
The house used to be owned by Dick Burdick, who is the owner of the Classic car museum dicksclassicgarage.com (a picture of a 31 Cadillac below)
Very glad to be back home and resume a more normal life.
Some before and after pictures of the restorations

Howdy Peter!!! As always your work on the restoration is beautiful. You sure get to work on some gorgeous buildings, very rewarding to bring them back to their former glory. I bet you're glad to be home for sure!

Peter, a nice looking B190 up in Denver!
Pick up your pipe and play a tune, and you can have twins!

I saw your post about it, Steve. Its a good price, since they usually sell quickly. Despite their compact design they are still in high demand. In my VW microbus camping years, it would have been a dream come through. I really love to drive it with its 7.5 l powerhouse and Overdrive. A perfect traveling machine, but tight quarters for extended stays.
in regards to playing a tune, how do you like the new pedestrian lights in Hamelin?

I think what's really happening here is Peter has a bucket list and one of the items on that list is to have owned at some point or another every Airstream model before he kicks the so called bucket

Ok, Brad, as always, you nailed it.
And yes, the jackets came with a nice Classic.
This is how the story really unfolded:
I had planned on leaving Saturday morning (yesterday) at 6am to purchase a 79 24' a few hours North of here. Not running, a complete restoration basket case. Already had the Low Boy Tow truck lined up, just waiting to get my final go ahead at noon. As a last communication the evening before, I wanted to confirm that the engine turns over (was told it has a knock). The answer this time was, no it doesn't, its frozen. Oh boy, I expressed my concern and the phone was passed on to the father. He said, no it will turn over fine, just needs some good batteries. Someone probably just put unleaded instead of Super in the tank and now it diesels
My brain went into Information overload, short circuited and rebooted. I cancelled my appointment and called off the tow driver.
As I recovered from the experience (already had spoken to a high quality engine rebuilder), I was browsing Ebay and the listing for the jackets came up. Then I noticed this:
A symbol to the left of the D!!!!! I emailed the owner to please call me and clicked "buy it now" while I was talking on the phone, confirming that it was roadworthy (recent fuel lines, filters, belts etc etc)
