New To The Forum!!

Hey everyone,

Excited to join the forum!! later this month I'm picking up my first airstream. My wife and I are both excited and nervous cause it needs a lot of work. But I'm ready for the challenge and this seems like the place to be for information and great community!!

Welcome! Having no knowledge/skills in restoration, I will add no value to your efforts beyond encouragement

And the crowd here really digs pics...

Good luck and happy camping!

Thanks USS Sylvia! I'm going to do a mid century modern look, with euro ply core maple, polish the interior Whale tail end, white paint everything else and do a custom wood paneling for the interior front... I custom design and build furniture, I included a few pieces that kinda represent the style. I probably won't get into the major renovations till June or July,

Thanks! I really geek out with designing, so I'll probably draw the trailer up in my 3D software and do the layout and everything before I start the full renovations
