Love the cabinet doors and dark finish on the kitchen - is it just painted or did you laminate it? Looks great - exactly what we'd like to do in ours. We've got a good start but it's not nearly as slick looking as yours. Great job!

The interior looks great. Looks like you've been busy with much accomplished.

Wow, thanks for all the compliments! It really only took a couple of weeks once I got into the meat of it... The cabinets were completely gutted and we replaced them with off the shelf units from IKEA. All the wardrobe and pantry cabinets were re-done with new doors, and a new frame in wardrobe section. I am a finishing carpenter / cabinet-maker / fabricator so I have a bit of a skills and tools advantage.
Everything was done in the trailer or outside in the dust though... The lights are LED pucks that I bought at Rona (the canadian Lowes). They were $45 for a three pack. Seemed like a great deal since lots of folks on here were spending $14 per bulb to retrofit factory pucks! We wanted a look similar to the new Internationals, and I think we came fairly close.

A few more pics below... Some show the original interior fixtures, with gross "smokers cough" yellow paint on the walls and oak everything... Then we have lights under construction, on, and off... And a shot of the face-frame being made for the wardrobe areas.

Do you like the view because it is the Olympic Peninsula in the far distance? Thanks for the great feed back! It makes me feel good to see that people who actually know something about Airstreams like what we have done!

"Like" what you have done is an understatement. It is fantastic.

Yes, outstanding! And I'd say you've applied your skills very well.

Yup, it looks fantastic. I'd like to hear a lot more about what line of IKEA cabinets you used and if you modified them much.

No, Squeemish is farther up 99, where they call it the Sea-to-Sky Highway.

I agree, I would like to know about the cabinets as well! We just picked up a 71 Excella 500 that needs a bit of work! We thought about using Ikea cabinets, can you PM or post what modifications it may have to get them in there? did you use office cabinets or kitchen cabinets? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

So I took some more pics today... The cabinets are standard Ikea kitchen cabinets that have been rather heavily "modified". The use of templates and jigsaw go hand in hand with woodworking in these beauties! I will put pics in my next post... I am having trouble uploading to AF, so have to go to photobucket first...
