Let me know if you decided to let it go

FinallyGot1,

Let me know if you decided to let it go. I've been looking for an original 50's cruiser to put back original.

I live in Front Royal, VA right out I-66 from you and would love to see it.

FG1,
Please sell that trailer to Paul, or to someone that will restore it. It is worthy of a total restore and should be saved! The floor plan is awesome and would work great for a family.

Thank you!

The advice is much appreciated, and what I was afraid of in some ways. I have a vision of what I want the interior of my Airstream to be, but to get there I'd have to gut it.

I have a friend who's interested in it. If she doesn't take it, I'll put it in the classified section.

Sell it to someone who is an airstream addict-rideair looks like a great choice. that way it will be restored and around for another 50 years. the 50's trailers are harder and harder to come by and gutting it would be a shame. Just my opinion of course! PS I do not know Rideair but I bet he would love to have it and he is close to you.

That's very kind of you. I'm in the "it's your trailer and you can do what you want with it" camp... BUT... those early 50s and earlier trailers are getting harder and harder to come by, so any that are decent candidates for restoration, are hard for me to see "turned" into something else.

If you just like the shiny aluminum exterior and want to completely gut the interior anyway, there's no doubt you can find a somewhat younger trailer that will suit your needs. Please feel free to ask around this Forum for leads, help, and advice. You wouldn't believe some of the amazing and cool tranformations that people have done around here.

Just to whet your appetite for what is possible, check out this thread, it's one of my favorites. It's long, but you can skip the text and just look at the pictures (although the text is worth reading too, anyone who plans a major Airstream renovation can learn a lot from this thread):

Good luck!
