Here's the kitchen area...We absolutely love the storage in all Airstreams but this pantry was hard to beat in an older model. When I took out the stove, I just went with a micro and cooktop, no oven. Didn't really do much baking when camping and a portable toaster oven will probably work for us.

Lastly, here is the seating area. I did take out a lot of stuff, like the table and credenza or whatever it was and replaced with a more suitable table for our use. My first post showed the beds flat, here's what they look like for seating purposes. I have had 6-adults in here on a rainy camp day, tight but not uncomfortable to wait out a Colorado thunderstorm. Oh yeah, the bottom pic is a before shot. The laminate floor did a good job of hiding the frame rot going on-boy, will I know better next time! Had to gut the entire unit, lift the frame, weld a new one, and build up from there. I read postings on the forum for hours on end, just getting opinions and ideas and without this forum would not have been able to even think about such an undertaking. Hopefully, my pictures are now adding a little back.

Hey Bob-I first used the Removal220 I think it is called to strip the clearcoat. From there I used the method that is described in some detail in the perfect polish web site. Used F7, C and S. I bought a harbor freight polisher and burned threw 2 of those before buying a much better unit thru Home Depot. Also had to invest in a cyclo but I have continued to use that yearly to keep the polish. Thing I hate the most is water spots, so I have been using the NoWet polish that Airstream sales. It does cut the shine just a bit, but I gladly trade that for not have to get rid of waterspots every time I polish.

I have thought about opening the gauchos up and adding a layer of memory foam maybe 1-1/2",mostly because my wife likes a little softer mattress than I dp. Haven't done it yet, the threads I have read on mattresses seems to be just as opinonated as everything else on the forum and I am not sure what camp I am in yet. My biggest worry would be how would it bend when it is in seating mode. If you do something with yours, let me know how it works out.
