I don't want to sound like a skeptic or a grinch, but this guy out in LA has shown up at least once per week by someone in this forum for a couple months now, and usually not by someone who has a ton of posts under his name. If he's trying to wage some sort of subtle marketing campaign for his business, this is probably not the forum. The glass tile in the bathroom really annoys me - not only is it heavy, but good luck trying to haul that trailer anywhere and keeping the tile on the wall. Plus trying to use a mildew cleaner in a camper is probably going to be a death sentence if you don't have the fans running. Now, if he talked about replacing his axles, and using a new lightweight acrylic plastic tile with a white tinted slow cure epoxy as the grout, I might be really interested. I've been messing around with the idea in my head for a little while. The first time I saw it, I thought it was interesting. This is about the 20th time, and I'm getting annoyed by seeing it a couple times each week. I'd like someone to swing by and see how clean this guy is keeping his trailer now using these materials. Audiv8q, this was probably just something you came across and wanted to share, so please don't take it as an offense against you. But if you're that guy in the picture that looks like one of the long lost brothers from the Duke's of Hazzard, please, give it a rest. No one who respects their trailer is going to be putting in hundreds of pounds of glass tile in a rear bath.

Too funny - every time I open a message regarding this trailer I wonder how it's getting soooooooo much attention from the peps on this site. I guess I'm showing that I check in here *much* too regularly....

First time I've seen, as a previous owner of two 78 Airstreams a 25' and a 31' I think it's Great! A lot of good ideas.

That "Magnolia Pearl" thing is a bit frightening. The interior reminds me of photos I've seen recently of the decaying Michigan Theater in Detroit.

my first thought was, "that grout will crack on the first pothole or speedbump"...

That was exactly what happened to me... And indeed how "we" came to want an Airstream. First it was just wanting the trailer - then I showed her the 345, andn she was in love.

My wife has always had a dream of acquiring an old school bus and turning it into a home on wheels. Enter Michael's (I am Michael) construction skill - I would not be satisfied with removing the seats and throwing in a couple of bunk beds and a wood-burning stove... Oh, no - I would want to do the entire motor home makeover, and install tanks, kitchen, walls, and do everything properly.

So as I was doing my preparatory online research on how to accomplish such a task, I came across this very informative site:
Jake's School Bus Conversion Project
and as a link from that, there was the Magnolia Pearl. I - as you said - "made the mistake of showing it to my wife" - and now she wants an Airstream instead of a school bus - and wants to deck it out like Magnolia Pearl has - AND - she has been studying MP's clothing, and has been replicating "MP-type" clothing for herself on her Husqvarna - and doing a pretty darn good job of it I might say...

Yeppers... Magnolia Pearl - don't show this to your wives - it's expensive!

First of all - I am pretty sure there's a picture of me on my profile here on AS Forums - compare for yourself...

Second - as far as I could read, he isn't moving it around - it's stationary on rented land - so your concerns probably are unwarranted.

Third - Wow! Did you get out on the wrong side of the bed this morning? Hadn't expected such a grumpy reply to a post I thought would be interesting to the community. Had no idea it had already been shown 263 times before over the course of the last 72 hours... ;-)

Robwok - trust me I share your feelings, every time I see this I think MARKETING! Its a cool trailer but an airstream that's not built to move? I think Wally wouldn't approve... doesn't surprise me that its for sale...or that there will be buyers. Nice catch Shari.
