Hi Vickie,

My countertop is original, and solid, so I guess I'm lucky. Yours has probably just suffered the effects of water getting on it over the years. It might also have had water leak in from the refrigerator vent above and run down to the countertop.

Because nothing is a stright line in an airstream, it might be a challenge to put in a new countertop, but you wouldn't be the first one to do so. check out the vintage-vacations caravel and dwinicks Caravel for some mild to wild Caravel kitchen ideas.

That's one I need in our kitchen. I keep hitting the low one and chipping dishes. I try to hide em but when the boss finds the chips she gives me what-for.

Yeah, Brett tried that kind of thing with my laundry. He kept ruining my silk blouses, hoping to get out of laundry duty. Instead, he bought me a bunch of new silk blouses.

I am suprised you have dishes that will chip in your AS. We always have Corell or melamine. And did you know that paper plates don't chip and can be "done" in the campfire each evening?

Too bad we're all on different ends of the country. It would be fun to get our little Caravels together
Nice piece of work~!
Hey, don't exclude us GT'ers.~
I've gotten about half-way into my bathroom sink and, faust.. these things are a "Bear" to take apart~!
So far, I've found the screws under the lip of the counter but, decided that I need to get in under it from the outside rear compartment door to remove the fittings, etc..
Grrrrr, this isn't going to be easy~

Again, extremely nice work~!!
