I need help with making Gaucho cushions, and Curtains

I need close up pictures of a Gaucho and curtains so I can make some. I have a 77 excella 500. It has a curbside Gaucho frame. Center twins. Everything that was cloth was removed from our camper before we got it. I think there was also something attached to the wall behind couch and the twin beds. Can someone please send detailed pictures so I can finish our camper. I would really appreciate it.

Go here and scroll down to a photo archive of every year and model of Airstream up until 1981+. I'm sure it will help you with your restoration.

Netlace,

Tell me exactly what you need pictures of and I will take them next time I head to my trailer. I beleive that I have the exact layout that you have. You will find out that most couches are along the front of the trailer vs the curb side like ours. I assume that you have the curved galley like mine.

I think, after re-reading the original post, they need dimensions of the cushions and curtain measurements. They seem to have the frame for the gaucho.


Netlace, I think it was a thin piece of wood, like a small shelf used for support behind the gaucho. I dont have twins so Im not sure if it would be the same in the bedroom.

All I have is the wood frame. No front side back pieces if there are some. I am lost!
