This is a great thread. I can't believe I've missed it all these years.

My trailer doesn't have the character of some of the old ones, but I like it.

Photo 1: The day I brought it home.
Photo 2: Full House, guests watching TV on a rainy evening.
Photo 3: Bed hog.
Photo 4: The Godfather of Airstream, PeeWee as my guest.

Good shots Steve. Lots of story told in those pictures.

Your dog is a cutie. Those eyes, aahhh. At first I thought he took the corner too fast and broke all the dishes then I figured out it was the trailer that moved 'round the corner. Oh oh is right. That was not such a good surprise when you opened the door.

Did you make your own slipcover for the couch? That would be handy to know how to do.

You have lots of room for visitors and you met Pee Wee on the caravan? How cool is that? Watching movies is no problem with so much seating in your Airstream. Good floorplan.

Don't you love those segments on the older Airstreams? Me too.

CCD colors and the Airstream brochures always seem to "pop." There is something about a big orange flower too, and basically any orange accent that goes so well in the silver interiors! It reflects so nicely. The hallogen lighting in your SE is gorgeous.

I love looking at trailers! This thread helps me see lots of visuals and is easy on the pocketbook and fits right into any schedule.

you got it right!

Yes!!! yellow and blue mirrored glass (and fur,too) was all over every ceiling. Fur was on the walls, too. Found some "love paraphenelia-stuff" when we were demo-ing, too ! Laughed until we cried!! And the kicker is that everything and I mean EVERYTHING was stuck on the walls and ceilings with liquid nails!!!

I loved you picture of Travolta.... definately fits the theme they had going! I sure hope some folks will take you up on your offer and post some really NICE pictures -- could work as an inspiration for us.

Here are a few of our '67 Globetrotter- I'm still adding some personal touches to enhance her silver/grey/yellow color scheme. Still want to paint the oven door yellow also! Also planning on weaving some custom rugs for her.

I actually just finished reupholstering my couch seat and back. It was the first time I had touched a sewing machine since home economics class. I'm going to see how well it holds up to abuse by the dog. If it works out well I'll probably reupholster everything in colors more to my liking. I posted a lot of step by step photos in another thread http://www.airforums.com/forums/f39/...ect-61003.html

I bought my Airstream used and never cared for the big blue stripes. I brought in the orange shag rug, orange comforter and orange curtains to take your eye away from the blue and make it look a little more bright and interesting. It's a great reflective color in the aluminum.

What a great thread! I love seeing all the variations that people come up with. We bought our Argosy without any curtains or usable cushions (the PO had the cushions; they had been sitting outside in the weather while he lived in the Argosy building his new house). We brought the icky cushions home so we could use them for templates, and got rid of them as soon as possible! We had no idea what we were doing at the time, so our homemade cushions, upholstery and curtains have "character"! They work just fine for us, although we are looking at fabric samples with the idea of making a second interior to swap out when we get bored.

P.S. Please excuse the non-matching blanket on the bed; the maroon one was in the wash!

ianrjam,
I really like the modern feel of your trailer with the curved partition walls and look-through from the kitchen to bedroom. Everyone has such great looking trailers on here.

We are still a long way from finishing but we are going for a "rustic country" feel with ours using pine wood for all of the interior walls/cabinets. Our color scheme with the fabrics mimic the blue/white striped awnings (found similar material for curtains) and solid dark blue for the couch cushions/bedspread. We think we are going with the snap together pergo type flooring that looks like brown/greyish slate stones.

Outside the bathroom:


The hall closet/pantry/fridge area (needs facing and doors yet)


Vista views after breaking and new handles:

Just stirring the pot here. Just returned from a short camp-out and I noticed lackluster from boring interior. I need an emergency dose of glam. Bring it on, small or intricate, where are those visuals that make your Airstream home away from home?

Not much glam but we have made some progress since our last post above... and we spent a night camping in the driveway a couple weeks ago. Was a great night!

Kitchen getting done with new oven and countertop:


Living room couch/bed cushions and wine end table done:


Picked up the flooring today. Sample in the photo (bottom, right corner):

I love looking through the great pictures in this thread, so many nice modifications and decorating ideas and personalities. There is so much work and artistic abilities and love put into these Airstreams that are each so very unique inside and yet so identifiable outside. I think that is a big reason we are drawn to them.

Please join our Open House. We are waiting to see your Airstream!

We've seen many fabulous Airstreams but along with the fab comes the plain janes. It's OK though come in, I have wine and appetizers...

We recently traded for a new to us 2004 28' Classic, this is the living room.

I replaced the red fire extinguisher with a nice brushed aluminum one.

I like this white lamp from Walmart it looks modern retro to me and I have it on a remote dimmer switch. Mini Italian lights will eventually be somewhere because I love the lighting of them.

This model did not have the entertainment upgrade so I have a small Sony salvaged from DH's Airstream when he upgraded his tv and I use it with a small digital converter. It is quite light and will store easily in the cabinet or move to the nightstand. The bear was a present from the previous owner.

I have two pictures I want to display one is Michael's and the other is one of David Winick's. As you see the ASL magazine in the magazine holder next to the fire extinguisher was also featuring Artstream's picture. It brings back fond memories of meeting in the terraport at Jackson Center.

Another lamp I liked for the Airstream and this one was from Home Depot. I also have added the electric/12volt heated mattress pads for comfort to the twin beds.
