jp, how about more pictures and detail on your airconditioner install. I'm looking for new ideas for the install in the Flying Cloud. That is when I get back to working on that project. I've been sidetracked with two projects, painting the house and building a storage unit in the attic.

so far, the installation is limited to setting the unit on the floor of the trailer! I did draw a prety detailed plan, based of Uwe's installation. I'll try to decypher my pencil sketches and post something either today or tomorrow to make sure I haven't forgotten anything. Wouldn't want a leak inside an all wood airstream, now!

A couple of weeks ago, I saw Uwe's AC installatin and it was a thing of beauty. I didn't see all of the details but I can say it sure worked great. He did have quite a bit of condensation on the rear register over the bed though. Wonder how that could be fixed.

Hi Annie ~

Welcome to the forums. If your tiles are 9 inch, then they are the original asbestos ones. Take precautions if you remove them by ventilating your trailer and wear a quality respirator. If they are in good shape, then you will be safe to either keep them as they are or if you choose to cover them with carpet or some other type of covering. Asbestos tiles are only a concern if you are removing them since they tend to be brittle and break. That's when the airborn particles are an issue.

Back to it!

good progress on the couch! I built it on the work bench, taking good measurements, of course.... then... the big question was... will it fit? YES! like a glove!

Next up is the bed frame, then I can get the cushions made.

ANd no, i haven't forgotten the AC, still juggling that one! maybe this weekend!

Great looking stuff man!! I thought that first picture was of a recliner and was wondering where you were going to put that in your dinky Airstream.

My Airstream is SHRINKING!!

I jsut realized, I didn't take any pics of the bed frame in progress. Oh well. Here it is test-fitted. I'm really liking the rounded edges. Definitely worth the effort! I can't believe how quickly the trailer is filling up, though! Hope there's room for US when I'm done!

This weekend, I'm tackling the AC installation. More pics on that later. I've already made the internal shroud, but the camera battery died!

Wow!

Incredible workmanship. I love the polished end cap with the wood surrounding it. I'm sure you can feel my envy oozing through the screen.

Keep up the outstanding restoration. It will be quite a "reflection" of your commitment to perfection when it's done.

I gotta find an excuse to go work up in Woodstock for a day. JP lives only a couple of miles from one of my work-sites. Unfortunately, I only make it up there occasionally.

Man, that is gonna be a nice one!
