I'd love to know where your Interior Design Show Airstream is currently, and some background on the project (objectives, budget, etc.) Was this designed just as a "portfolio piece" for Powell and Bonnell, for a wealthy client, or for someone at the firm? If it is used for camping, I'd love to know which rally you'll next be attending - so I could see it in person during the open house.

Fantastic work-

designer airstream

The trailer was designed for a show and was meant primarily as a unit meant to moved around only now and then. It was gutted and rebuilt by an awesome contractor who specialized in high end home renovations and cabinetry.

The total price was approx. $65K CAN $ including the purchase of the raw unit from Can-AM RV in London.

The trailer was purchased by a wealthy collector in Texas where it sits to this day in a warehouse with many other collector trailers and cars. I don't think it has ever been used!

I have since done another trailer (very simliar design) and used the tiles in a wrap around bathroom counter with those tiles and have travelled extensively in The US, Canada, and Mexico with no problems. I did the same leather wrap around sofa but designed it to open up for storage. This trailer has been my home for about 1-1/2 years now and I love it!

Cheers.

How about some pictures of your current trailer? I am sure there would be lots of interest in your designs.

Thanks for the update, Simon. I'd love to see photos as well - you guys do great work, regardless if it's for a trailer usually in motion, or mostly stationary.

Reading here of dream designs and postings of designers, I noted in post #14 a discussion of lycra fabric over 1/4" foam for a ceiling. I meanwhile am spending the winter still puzzling over my '95Classic Limited whose ceiling in the front LR and rear BR is hanging low: a vinyl-foambacked failure by Airstream. Can we have a small idea storm here of dream replacement of this failed foam ceiling? If I were to cut the vinyl at all edges (doors, windows, at cabinets, and so on) what ideally could I replace it with that would look classy and endure? I wonder,with the lycra and foam, how likely that combo is to fail, the adhesive letting go from the metal underneath? Any and all ideas appreciated~and I know we are not the sole owners of a mid-90's with this failed foam ceiling issue. I am thinking of replacement ideas, not reattachment ideas. Thanks to any and all! ~G

Pictures are posted, enjoy!

If you look under member pictures, you will find that I have posted 54 pics of my renovation. If anyone has any questions, please just ask. I am happy to pass on lessons I have learned.

wow thanks!

Hi Barb,

This project was a budget job compared to the 65K spent on the first one. I'd say this work was accomplished for around 20K. Almost all the labour was done by my pal Dann, and myself of course.

Good luck on your airstream dreams!

Beautiful work.

I can't seem to find any photos of the bath or tiles.

Can you post them?

Really, really nice looking trailer.

Thanks for sharing,


Sergei
