Right after we bought our Airstream 75 I started the full monty of cleaning everybody does it and as I slide the tambour under the sink there it was a little skeleton and some hair left I screamed so loud and ran out the door my neighbor came out to see if I was okay. I went in and got my husband and made him go through all the cabinets and anywhere there might be another one. I dont care if there alive or dead or petrified I'm scared of them. Now on to your question some folks like to leave there stream as original as they can and some folks change everything it's up to the owner. I myself changed the center bath I painted the walls and added all 50's linen postcards of Fl.

In my professional opinion, I think you have it. I'm officially diagnosing you with "silver fever". There is no known cure. You can expect to experience happiness, frustration, love, and much, much more. Don't worry, this forum serves as the perfect support group.

The first step is to admit that you have a problem.
