Some Airstreamers talk about a computer program called "Sketch". It is a 3D modeling affair that is available on the internet. Easy to learn they say. Ha!

Me, sketches and painter's tape works well enough. Aluminuminum, how do you like my Trade Wind bath sketch? Pretty neat for an old geezer like me.

The important is we approach a renovation with a solid plan covering all the details. So much in an Airstream is dependent on something else like Minno said. I like that bath design but I loose a window. You don't want to figure this out after you have the bath done.

My old 66 and my son's old 69 had cabinets just like Aluminuminum described. Held together through the years, but nothing more. Built like an orange crate. That's why I'm impressed with my 75 Overlander cabinetry. It is built with stout aluminum extrusions and light weight laminates. It is much better that the earlier stuff I worked with.

Nice David,
Your hand-drawn plan has personality. I've noticed your handwriting is neater than mine.


In computer modeling programs you can find wine bottle, fruit bowl, flower vase, to "drag and drop", but no rats or carp.

Hello Blue: It was a Springfield Marine pedestal. We saw it at the Denver RV show some years ago in a new Airstream. It is so much more stable than those "posts in a socket" jobs on white box campers.

We bought the thing on line from WalMart if memory serves. But there are other internet retailers that will ship one.

http://www.springfieldgrp.com/produc...ls/air-powered

I used the thing in the son's 69 Globetrotter as he wanted a "U" shaped dinette with seating all around, and then wanted to collapse the table into a big sleeping surface, roll out the sleeping bag, and crash.

This pedestal has continuous adjustments for the height of the table from about 13" to nearly 30" We made a table with "leaves" so he could have a small "coffee table" with more leg room.

Working slowly .

Pex water lines are 95% done . Waiting for table support to come in so I can mount it with a nice support under the floor (thanks Dave ). Then I will finish the under floor insulation and button up the pans so I can drill my holes for gas and other holes . Need to do that before I finish the water lines so I donít drill through them .
Been to cold to spray paint but itís going to be warmer tomorrow. Will try to paint the plastic bath tomorrow.
With any luck I will start cabinets next weekend . The last two pictures are the last cabinets I made . Maids day off . The last picture shows a door and drawer that looks funny . Itís a cover for the dishwasher and itís partly open

The kitchen cabinets look very nice indeed. I like the "hidden" dishwasher idea. You will have no problems making cabinets for your Airstream. Don't make them too heavy though.

Slow progress is progress none the less. I don't recognize the fittings you used in your PEX plumbing project. I used simple cinch clamps. When I did the son's house, I used the compression rings. The fittings in the photo almost look like ferrel fittings. Just wondering.

David , these fittings just push on and seem to work and is faster . You can spin the pipe in the fitting for better alignment. They have a mil spec . Will see .
Been in bed since Sunday afternoon with a head cold . Today I can move around a little .
Got the table stand through Wallmart . They sent me two?and charged me for Two . Been on the phone with their customer service in the Phillipeens ,speelt wrong . Dam spell check .
They did send me a return label .
Hope to have this soar throat and cough gone be this weekend , going to be in the 70s and want to paint the bath .

Oh I see. We call them "push to connect" fittings in Minnesota. They seal with an o-ring on the OD of the PEX, or copper. I have three of them in the wife's 86 Limited. I was nervous for no need. They have been there since 2013 and not a drop. We also used "PTC" fittings in our factory on new water conditioning machines. They work well. Sharkbite seems to have grown the most in this market.

Sorry to hear you're a bit under the weather; hack, honk, hack, honk, achoo. It will pass soon.

David

Hey, get better soon. Bronchitis is nasty stuff. Watch out for pneumonia. I wish you well. Take it easy during your recovery. There is lots of future time to work on the Airstream.

Nice to see you up, about and back at it. I had a couple of minor leaks found in the "bubble test". I fixed those and held good air pressure all night. My air compressor hoses aren't air tight so I loose a bit of pressure there.

I'm sure your plumbing job is perfect.

David

Joyflea,

Lots of inspiration here! Awesome work. Can't wait to see the end product! This will certainly help us better understand what we are in for as we get into putting ours back together...

Still not 100% but had to get out of the house . Canít work with my head down so I trimmed out as much electrical as possible. Put up the vent covers , ceiling lights , ac cover ( still needs work on back side ) ,wall plugs and such .
Weather is going to be nice this week and Iím going to try and paint the bathroom plastic and fiberglass by Sunday. Going to go camping the middle of next week and will be gone for 2 weeks in my truck camper . Going down to Big Bend National Park pulling our motorcycles. Going to be in the 80ís and the blue bonnets are out .
