Hello all I'm looking for my first airstream and have found ine for $800 the floor and inside has been torn out and the cabinets are stored as well as the tanks/ apliances.
listed as a 1959
23 ft, it appears to be a 22ft flying cloud..
My Idea is to get this AS and cut a portion of the back off and weld steel diamond plate on and some rails (kinda like a fan tail on a ship) with an opening for entrance stairs/ loading ramp for my kdx200 and xt350 motorcycles. while camping the back would be a porch/ griling area
remodel the front part into camping area with a shower, toilet, sink, refridgerator and bed or beds.
this AS seems pretty far gone so "converting it" to me does not seem like a crime.
what would you recomend I use to enclose the back of it with (bracing, door, and skin)?
what is in between the outer and inner skins of this year Airstream to attach paneling to?
would I be shunned and offered no help by the airstream crowd for not restoring it to its original glory?
I hope these pics work
