Pinterest Pics and the Grey Skydeck Rebuild

This weekend I am finding all the Skydeck pics from the net, trying to collect VINs. I am putting them on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/israndy/airstream-sky-decks/

Check it out!

I think there may be more than one, but I saw a grey Skydeck when I first got interested in them at BusForSale.com.

It was $139K and it sold, so I thought the $65,000 I paid for mine was a good price.

Today I came across a post from Nomad Airstream that I had not seen before. You would think you could look at things chronologically, but you cannot. It was a posting from Sept. 2012 of a grey Skydeck, similar to the one on BusForSale.com, but no logo on the windshield. Also probably too early to the be same RV.

They said it was to be converted into a fabulous mobile spa on wheels! That was the third Skydeck I have seen at Nomad, the obvious one being the Nomad Airstream (http://nomadairstream.com/customize/airstream-skydeck/) and the other we know as Big Blue, who is on this board. Unfortunately there was no other posting about the fate of this spa RV.

Scrolling further in the my search on Facebook for Airstream Skydecks I found:
https://www.facebook.com/don.brown.1...8524302&type=3

This is a VERY similar looking corporate Skydeck also without the Windshield logo. It also has no Airstream 75th Anniversary logo near the rear.

But inside they were gutting the RV. It had gone from this:

The poster was the one called in to take care of the electrical, but he doesn't mention who was doing the rest of the RV rebuild. He estimates that the rebuild alone with propane addition and furnaces and appliances was going to be over $50,000. Yikes! If this one sold for what the other one with the logos went for, that is one expensive Skydeck, though still not as expensive as the Nomad I model my rebuild on.

Oh, found the sale for the one at Nomad. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f313...ml#post1332670

No idea the cost but the miles at 85K are half of the BusForSale.com Skydeck at times of sale. Assuming there are only TWO of the grey RVs I am just curious why the roof was painted blue. The roof on the one linked above are still unpainted.

Perhaps we all need to paint the skydeck furniture to keep them from rusting.

Thanks for the pictures and the insight. I remember seeing one of these brand new back in 2005. I was quite impressed.

The Airstream Skydeck is one of the most unusual RV's ever produced by anyone.

I have some close up pics of the various Coors Skydecks as well as the trinity RV rentals (tx) . I can send them to you if you want to upload them to the Pinterest page...let me know if and how you want me to send them to you. Thanks
Alan (Big Blue)

PS. I can ask the Nomad guys about the Gray ones whereabouts....

PLEASE send the photos you have. I find them so helpful in finding out what is going on with mine, but I am having fun also organizing the 27 Sky Decks out there. If you can find a VIN that will be awesome as the Hollywood Productions guys that do the Coors RVs keep re-doing them and I am not sure which RV(s) they started with. They may have purchased the i2i Marketing one...

If you are on a Mac and running any recent software you can just email me israndy at gmail dot com and I will get them. Send them actual size and perhaps only 5 photos per email. if there are a lot you can compress them and send them as a group.

I am not sure of a clever way to get them from a PC or an older OS, but email me at the above address and let me know where the photos are coming from and I'll think more about it.

Thanks so much, I am very excited to see them.
