Welcome aboard. We like all aluminum trailers, even non-Airstreams.

Great job! It looks great, have you had it out on the road much? I think a pair of aluminum 30 pound propane cylinders would really finish it off nicely.

Excellent job. Will it shine up like a vintage Airstream or did they use anodized aluminum or other mat finish?

I am not sure but it looks like it is anodized aluminum.
