quite a leap: from 'craftsman-built to Airstream

Hello,

I recently finished a little 750lb camper that I built, and then a senior couple offered me a 95 Excella 30' at a 'can't refuse' price. The AS will need some refurbishing and de-mousing, but the cabinet work is good and appliances were in working order as of a couple years ago. There is a leak into the floor of the back bumper storage compartment which is probably the most pressing thing, and the droopy ceiling liner in the rear bedroom will need attention too.

In the meantime, here's pics of the Nutmeg, as we call it:

Hi Bob, greetings from central Kentucky and welcome to the forum.

Congratulations on the Airstream (AS) acquisition and what a nice job on the homemade trailer. You are a very talented person. I'm sure you'll have the AS fixed up in no time.

Very clever, and nice work

Every once in awhile, one comes across in campgrounds a homemade camper, and they are always a labor of love.

Hmm, I always heard that said about Airstreams too.
