1962 tradwind

Newbie here. I have a 1962 tradewind and im trying to fix it up. Im going to try to post a picture in the next post. My question is should I keep the wood bed frame and fix it up or pull it out and go buy a nice futon and some Ikea furniture? I would like to end up with a nice clean airstream I can take camping. I would love to see some pictures of a fixed up interior. Im ready to spend some money but not sure where to start. Thanks Scott Houston TX

24T to 24D conversion

Here's what I did. Original to the trailer was the twin bed set-up, one twin over each wheel hub. I took one twin bed out and built a very large drawer on top of the base of the other twin bed. I pull the drawer out to extend the bed into a full size. It's actually 6" less wide than a full size mattress, easily purchased anywhere. I used a memory foam mattress.

When the drawer is in, it locks with eye-bolts and doubles as a couch. There are plywood pieces underneath the mattresses for stability of course. The fabrics to cover the mattress is pending.

Good luck with your choices!

Harrison,If the choice were mine,I would keep everything that is not beyond repair or rotted away.That bed frame has a nice curve to it.It may surprise you how well these Airstreams clean up.Lots of pic in the interior forum and member's photos.
