Very nice cabinet work. I like the metal grill work. This might even save a little weight. Is it aluminum? Nice sky light too.

My guess on the photo problem is that the longest dimension seems to go on the horizontal.

We are real happy with the cabinets, even my husband who grumbled that I always complicate things for him lol. The inserts are alluminum. We got one sheet for free from a friend , it was an order return so instead of throwing it out she gave it to us. We bought a second sheet from her store. The sky light is the original astro dome with some polish.

Update on the final touches

We are pretty much done for interior. The last items are window treatments. Mini blinds have been ordered and I found a great set of curtains at a bargain price. They will need to be shortened but they look good. Hubby is currently working on pantry shelving.

Oh boy the winter is long! Can't wait to go camping

Finishing touches inside

Time for some updates. Cabinet doors have "stay open" latches. We have a new cherry wood bathroom door. We have new mini blinds. Curtains have been sent to be shortened. We also now have a new shower rod. Closets and pantry are also done.

Hi, you have been busy. Those pantry drawers sure look cool. I wanted to do that, but my pantry door was only 11" wide yet the panty full width was 14". I elected to use simple shelves instead, a decision I will regret every time I'm looking for a can of soup way in the back of those shelves. The trailer was built with fixed shelves so that's what I used.

The wood work is beautiful. I was admiring the photo of the pantry door.

The "stay open" linkage is similar to what I have on the mirror in the bath of my Overlander. I can turn the knob and keep the mirror open. But I need a way to keep it shut tight when towing. Do you have any ideas? Maybe a magnetic catch.

David

Beautiful wood work and operable drawers. My shelves and drawers pale in comparison because it is stock Airstream.

Nice work. May I ask where you got the shower curtain rod and hardware?

Hi Jeremy
We bought the hardware and pipe at Fabricville. My husband then bent the pipe to follow the curve of the Airstream.

We originally wanted to do the same or similar to this one http://www.airforums.com/forums/f46/...on-147648.html) but after kinking 2 different pipes , we opted for this setup.

It is basically a bent 3/4 inch curtain rod with curtain hardware. He used a pipe bender to get the curve after filling the pipe with sand and a bending spring.

Polishing

I haven't posted in a long while. Thought I might add an update. My husband is in full on polishing mode.(I am getting sick of the black oxide that is getting into the house. This stuff ends up everywhere)

The Airstream is looking good, not quite a mirror finish yet but not that far either.

I use a rotary polisher also with a 8" wool bonnet. I used to use just a 1/2" drill to "compound", or the first step in the polish process. Then out comes the cyclo and more grinding away to remove the swirls.

It is dirty hard work, but looks better than faded clearcoat. I believe it adds significant value to the trailer.
