Love Love love my updates & remakes from A & P Vintage!

My husband & I toss around the idea of a new Airstream for quite sometime. However, for me it was still not giving me what I wanted. To comfortable on the road & not tripping over two 60 lbs dogs. All I can say is, "I'm totally in love with our Airstream." Ann & Paul at A & P Vintage Trailer Works, in Paradise TX gave us everything we wanted. The recliners we found for sale here on the forum, and we took those with us when we dropped off the trailer at A & P. I just wanted to share our updates & remakes with you. Every day I looked through the forum to see what great ideas everyone had & hope for some new pics of their projects. After it was all said & done. I could not be happier! Thank You, A & P Vintage Trailer Works. For making our 2007 Safari all shiny & new again.

Munchie

We thought about buying new, but instead stead we did the updates. I'm so glad we did the update & did our own thing. My fav is the dinette. No no more busting a gut to slide into the dinette.

Great design, great implementation. We had recliners in our 25 and loved them but no dinette. Looks like you solved the problem. I'm planning to replace the drop doors and bins under the twin beds in our 30 S/O with drawers as you have done to eliminate the need to get down on hands and knees for access. Now I just have to figure out how to get some neck and head support with our sofa.

Great job!

Al

The doggies go opposite of where we are. We had a queen bed in the back with those wardrobes that had no use at all. Now they have the floor space between the beds & space under the dinette table.

The way the dinette is placed now. It's more of a work space for me when cooking. Just made Jambalaya for dinner! Is was so much easier to turn around and have that table as a work space. The table is a marine telescope table which lets me lower it at different levels. It will also move from left to right & front to back giving me more options. Plus, I now can get both dog crates into the Airstream in side by side just in case we want to do a quick bike ride or a quick hike with out them. Our dog's hardly ever leave our side. However, weather permitting (not to hot) we can actually go have some time for ourselves. Since National Parks have very strict rules as we all know.

Gorgeous!

Thank you for sharing! It looks beautiful! We are in the process of getting our first AS, a 1997 Excella restored, and we are so excited to get it back! How long did it take for them to do yours? Was yours always silver inside? Thanks!

Looks like you got a new floor, Marmoleum?

We are scheduled for late August at A&P for some renovation work to our 2008 Classic 25fb. The major reason is to convert from queen to twin beds. We made the decision like you, after looking at new Airstreams, to update ours. The only advantage to new Airstreams is the ducted air.

Thanks for sharing.

Kelvin

I think about two months Tonedi. The monsoon season Texas had slowed the work down just a little. Yes it's always been Silver inside.
