Hello everyone.

Writing to you today from sunny Az. I work from a company called automatik education and we create training material and run events for the auto industry. Several events a year are out on tracks and in parking lots and we wanted something that we could refurbish into a mobil office of sorts but that could also be a sleeping quarters while on the two years ago we bought an 87 Airstream, gutted it and made it new.

I look forward to chatting with this community and learning more about the wonderful Airstream and the people who use them.

Thanks - it took more $$ than we had hoped, but the end product is very nice. It is a Hybrid between a sleeper coach and a working office. It was in decent condition when we purchased it for the company. We hired an interior designer/Airstream owner to remodel. We had it buffed and shined in Tucson. Gutted all but the bathroom. Had it reskinned, and added the cabinets and custom couch/table area, plus lits of AV. Some of the cool features we added are:
  • MotoSat Dish for DirecTV and Internet feed
  • Front and rear Table motors to convert the table to a bed with the flip of a switch.
  • Flat screen TVs in front and back
  • Sound system and DVD/VD player in front and back
It is a stinker to maintain, but the clients like it and the employees get to take it out camping every now and again. Thanks for the interest.

Welcome to the forums!

Great looking "office"! Got a pic of the shiny outside? We love pictures!

Boy, I worked for 30 years as a teacher and high tech to me was a computer with Windows 95! Obviously public education....
