Do you remember where you got your hinge for the fold-up leg?

It came off of the original fold down/up dohicky at the end of the original counter. It's the avacado green thing hanging above the old magazine rack. On the left end of the stove cabinet.

Really? I've got one of those that I think I'm going to do away with. Looks like a good use of it.

Thanks for all the great pictures you posted. My box that covers up the water tank in the front is sort of just like yours so I think I am going to stop my cushions at that point and do what Shari did and make a "filler" cushion for the space between the end of the squared off cushion and the curve of the front. That way I will be able to turn the cushions over.

Progress IS being made but not very fast.

Wow!

Looks Great. I don't know why you think you're not making progress. It probably took me 3 month's to finish the galley and dinette. Keep up the beautiful work.

Better to take your time and do things well than to hurry-scurry and end up with a mess. Lucy looks like she approves...

Wow!!!! Double wow even!! Looks great, plus, you're having fun!

So, when I get to that point, I can start asking you for advice?!

Love Lucy. What kind of puppy is she?

Chris

Good to hear from you again - I've missed you!

I've been keeping up on your progress on this project. Just not much to contribute this time.

Lucy is very pretty. Never heard of a Blue Heeler before.

We've learned the hard way that you can't hurry-scurry with an Airstream!

Did you get the brakes working before you took the trailer to the top of the pass?

Axle

It's up to you to decide. But if it were my trailer and since it has leaf springs, not torsion bar; and the brakes work and it has good bearings. I would check the bushings and shackles at each end of the leaf springs. If there is no slop in the bushings and none of the leafs are broken. I would not replace the axle. Are there grease zerts for the bushings.
Of coarse I don't know what a new axle costs. And what piece of mind is worth.
If you decide to replace it, don't throw the old one away.
OH! I saw a trailer (I think it's the same as yours) for sale on Tin Can Tourist; it's in Marion, KS. It's a 1960 Traveler.

Is that something I can do or do I get the RV place to do it? Why keep the old axle if I decide to replace it? None of the leafs look broken but they are quite rusty.

I saw that one a couple of weeks ago on e-bay. Must not have sold, I guess. It is offered by the Airstream Guy. very tempting...
