I spend a lot of time in our Tradewind lately getting it ready for late April camping this year.

Do you think I'll make it

I find that one deep cleaning was still not enough to get the years worth of crud out from the AS sitting, as well as the desert dirt that got added from sitting in Rosamond, CA desert for 6 weeks!

I love the new clubhouse! and it keeps getting more comfortable as I finish stuff!

I know exactly what you mean ! My wife and I refer to each other as, "total trailer trash",LOL. Even when we are "camping" at home, we are at home in our Airstream. Why not enjoy it even when we are not on the road.

For me, it all started back in the early 60's when I was very young. Dad bought a new 1952 Airstream and would leave it all fall & winter at the duck club in Wasco, CA. We would go just about every weekend to hunt ducks during the season. Every weekend going to the club to hunt with my dad was a magical journey for me. As soon as we would return home on Sunday night, I would clean the guns, re-organize our gear, lay it all at the backdoor, take care of our lab retriever, Monty, so everything was ready for the following weekend. Some of my best days of youth were spent in that Airstream. I sure wish I had Dad's o'l 52 Airstream now ! I VOWED AS A KID THAT I WOULD HAVE AN AIRSTREAM SOMEDAY ! I sure wish Dad was still around to enjoy our Airstream now. At least I am living the legacy. It's not "just" a trailer to me, it's part of our family history.

FRONT LOUNGE:




KITCHEN:


We've decided we need to buy twice the fabric we need, as I like the way it looks when you can see the print on approach:


TWIN BED:


Across from the Twin Bed area, we are putting in a minibar since the PO removed all the cabinetry, so we chose this casino print for it.

BATHROOM:

BAR AREA:


If you look closely at that casino print, it has the marquis from the Silver Slipper Casino, so we think that is going to be the AS name! What do you all think of that as a name?




Very nice !
Dan

I agree with Dan! ^^^^ Great job. I never thought of backing the curtains... Love the name Silver Slipper also. Thanks for the pics.
