So is that a subtle hint that you want me to grill you a steak and have a smoke afterwards when you come up???

No really, thanks...we love it!

We just used a very thick vinyl on the floor...

Dennis,

The whole counter is a fake...this is what is under it...

and 2air' thought it was some little cooler!


Actually it is an extra door handle for one of the cabinets but don't tell anyone!

Hey 2air'...we are accepting vintage wine for our wine rack in our vintage trailer...so if you have an extra bottle laying around, I know a good place for it!

I'll even share!

A hint?? A HINT?? I am appalled <cough, ribeye!, cough> that you would think I would <cough, porterhouse!, cough> stoop to such a level!

Susan,

I was hoping that Steve would bring his smoker down with him that week since I will be missing the pulled pork at Branson!

Plus, as you well know, Western Sizzlin is right across the street so I've got you covered one way or the other...can you bring the Cigar's???

Gene,

It takes about 13 hours to smoke a shoulder in the smoker. We can get arround that by smoking it for 3 hours, and throwing it in a 300 degree oven for another 3 hours. We will arrive late Friday night since wh work till 4:30. Likely will not be bringing Collin down since he would be stuck in the back seat alone for 13-14 hours roundtrip in 2 days. I need to find out when the darned sofa bed will be at AOA, because if the sofa ain't there...neither will we be .

We can smoke a chicken in 5-6 hours, armadillo eggs in 2 hours, or just go over to the BBQ place.

Steve

First - WOW! That looks beautiful! We just purchased a 1974 Excella - so we are VERY new to the Airstream club My husband has removed the interior stuff - it was damaged, moldy, and broken. We are looking for a place where we can purchase new cabinetry and bathroom fixtures. Please help. Also, we keep reading about the importance of the 'weight'. Can someone please explain why? Thanks

First, the "weighty" question. Our coaches are travel trailers, if we make them too heavy, they will no longer be able to travel. Your trailer should have a GVW of around 6300-6600 pounds, including cabinetry.
Your trailer as built should weigh in at around 4800 pounds, plus things like water, the air conditioner, LP, food, clothing, your kids bicycles, etc. When you add the 150 pounds for the air conditioner, the 360 pounds for fresh water, the 60 pounds for LP, the 160 pounds for the awnings (730 pounds for those items), you are at 5530 pounds before adding anything else.
The heavier the cabinets, the less capacity there is for anything to put in them.
Now, as for purchasing the fixtures and fittings...You can buy things like a new toilet, you can probably figure out how to install new kitchen and bathroom sinks, and maybe even a tub or shower, "off the shelf". The majority of cabinetry and fittings are manufacturer-specific, and will have to be custom made, or scavenged from a donor unit.

Thank you - the breakdown of weight is exactly what I was looking for. My husband is a contractor and also restores old muscle cars, so he is able to finish our Airstream himself, which is very helpful! Is it possible to use regular "kitchen" cabinetry from Lowe's or Depot for the base cabinets?? He would obviously have to modify the backs of them to shape them properly..but, would it work?
