I looked up some of your old posts and it looks like you have 71 Globetrotter? That's similar in construction to our 73 Overlander. For the bulkheads, we used 1/4" Birch from Lowes. It turned out pretty nice. We didn't replace the interior skins, just cleaned and painted over the crazy vinyl. It was a lot of work, but much easier than trying to strip the vinyl off the walls. There are some threads on stripping interior vinyl walls here. Use Google search and include Airforums in the search terms.

Good luck. Post some pictures when it starts coming together.

Jim

I like it with the alum on the seams. Not to busy looking, I like the idea of it being all one color because my space is so limited.

I do have to take them off and reinsulate and wire, but I like the idea of just painting over the vinyl coating, what did you use for paint?

it is considered a 21' camper hitch to bumper, but 18' end to end interior.

Ship lapping

Has anyone shiplapped the interior of an airstream? We just got a 71 sovereign (31 footer) And want the ship lap look... We are fully renovating the trailer so the aluminum interior walls will be removed... my question is how important is the inner aluminum shell for structural integrity? Could we just pull it out and put up the ship lapping directly to the ribs?
