Airstream Disaster

I haven't posted in a while now... been distracted with other projects, but I recently purchased a new Tennsmith stomp shear and several sheets of aluminum to get started in the interior work.

However, all those plans came to a screeching halt Saturday evening with the arrival of a very strong gust of wind. So now, I'll be offering whatever parts I can save to who ever might need them.

This WAS at 1976 31' Airstream... now, is only a pile of fond memories and lost potential.

If you think you need any parts, please send an email to hoytp01@hotmail.com

No one was hurt in the making of these photos...

Thanks,
Pete

OMG! So sorry to see this. My '72 Trade Wind project sits under a 150 year old massive tree. It gives me nightmares!

Thanks everyone... my wife thinks I can salvage the front half and turn the back half into a patio for a mobile coffee shop. Boy, does she think outside of the box!

Sorry for the loss of what looked like a beautiful trailer. The poor thing didn't stand a chance.

Sorry to see your loss......

Well looking at the bright side of things you have a great start for a light weight tandem axle utility trailer to carry away the carcass to the scrapyard.
