Scott,

I am not planning to do much to the interior. It's vintage, in great shape, and I love it.

In fact, I can't get over how good the condition is!

Plenty of systems work ahead, at least I am assuming. Getting some professional help soon from an amazing shop called Camper Reparadise here in SLC. While they do complete rebuilds (which are amazing) I am planning to keep this one mostly vintage.

Hi Jim, I am also working on a 62 reno and trying to keep it original as possible. Let me know if you have any intact parts, cabinet, etc.

My cabinets are useful only as templates for making new ones. Most of the wood has delaminated and stinks of moldy rotten wood. I have still not decided about the bathroom. The toilet, shower tub, and sink are in decent condition with no cracks. It is an Ohio built trailer with the shower tub on the street side.

I understand. We sometimes go to campgrounds where there are no facilities or it is just much more convenient to use the Airstream facilities, especially in the middle of the night. Take your time. This decision is probably one of the most important ones made in the renovation of your Airstream. There is no right or wrong decision, just whatever is best for you and your wife. Enjoy the process.

Still on the fence about the bathroom. Some good news is I hooked up the Dometic refrigerator and it works. Very cool retro looking. With no moving parts it should last a long time. Looking forward to Alumaploosa next week at the mothership in Jackson Center OH, hoping to get some good ideas.

Removed the rotten floor section today. Lots of surface rust and a little rust through where some of the fasteners are. I would really like to remove the shell and properly repair, clean and paint the frame, but i am working outside and have no way to lift the shell. If I could do that I would replace the entire floor as well.

My refrigerator works too . . . . Have a blast in Ohio. I am planning on next year.

Give my regards to Rich Luhr, he's a great guy.

I'd love to see a summary post of highlights of what you learn there. Just the highlights, as it will likely be book worthy.

In case anyone is wondering I haven't given up but i am proceeding slowly. I was gone for three weeks on a trip to Custer SP SD, Yellowstone, The Teatons, and Ogden UT to visit my son. Came home to unbelievable heat and humidity that slowed me down as well. I did get the rotten floor section replaced and managed to get it in, in one piece. I've also have been removing interior skins. Most of the rivits came out easily, but some numbnuts along the way replaced some of the rivets with steel rivits. I decided to remove the skins to replace much of the wiring and insulation. I didn't want to start renovating only to later discover a problem that i missed and have to tear it apart again. I knew this was going to be a long process.
