Airstream on TLC 9 March and others

There is an Airstream trailer that just went onto Ebay. It states that it was part of the While you were out, and the interior was updated.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=50063

1974 27' Airstream Overlander. This camper is featured on The Learning Channel's While You Were Out TV show. You can watch the remodelling of this Airstream on TLC March 9 at 9pm central time, March 10 at midnight, March 13 at 10am, and March 25 at 4pm. The interior was completely gutted except for the bathroom. A new subfloor and custom interior complete with two leather recliners, refridgerator and handmade table, wall unit, pillows, and bench cushions was installed. The bathroom does need to be completely redone in order to make in working condition.

The exterior was not redone. Tires are in good shape and the camper tows well. Exterior lights need to be rewired.

I pity the person that buys that. They have absolutely no idea what they are doing and have RUINED that coach.

I love them NAILING carpet to the walls. No wonder its for sale.

You know, the trailer really depicts a tv prop doesn't it? Appears to be something that we recognize, but in reality, another hack job on a trailer.

Haven't seen an episode yet of that show that turned out great. I mean, it's usually some kind of improvement, but this one is pretty sad.

I just watched the episode. What a disaster. Those people have no professionalism at all either.

The table was built wrong and they just left it. The bed didn't line up and they left that too.

The buffing job was a joke to say the least.

I can't believe they aired the show their workmanship was so bad!

I think the term is "Screwed the Pooch"

From the look on the owner's face when he saw it, I think that that is EXACTLY what he was.....

No access to bathroom - no kitchen - and a bed/table supported by ONE floating base with 12" legs!

The trailer now has only residiual value.

After the fist 10 minutes

My wife asked me, what's wrong? As if I was hurting. Well, after seeing them gut an Airstream like that, and laughing, I was hurting. Then, the job they did to it...I too would be super ticked off at my wife (she was only 5 months new too) that it would take a long time to correct in our relationship. What a pity.

Those parts they destroyed, so you couldn't even go back...they had no idea what they were doing. They are not allowed in my area, or near my Airstreams.

PR None the less

I agree with you all that this show destroyed a perfectly good coach and also trashed everything they removed with no respect to it being recyclable by many of us!
But, for me anytime AS is in mainstream tv or movies, it helps me justify to the other half why I need to spend more on the ole AS. : )

I wonder if the cast and crew have any shame over this?

It didn't look like the participants were getting along very well during the shooting, but it is hard to tell because editing can skew the story in any direction desired.

Still, after the frenzy of demolition (with bars and hammers!) childish quarrelling seemed to be the order of the day. There was even a measure of contempt directed at the poor Airstream itself. I don't think any of these people wanted to be there, enjoyed the project and needless to say none had even a trace of knowledge or skill to makeover an Airstream.

By the reveal, the glued and stapled! carpet had already begun to fall off the walls. None of the built-in systems remained or worked and even the K-mart polisher shine had only been started and remains unfinished today.

All in all, I wish I had never seen the show.

Tried getting the the TLC forums but as typical for that show the links on the section for that show are a hack job as well and keeps crashing the browser.
