Show off your interior in a national magazine!

My name is Karen Catchpole. I’m a freelance journalist who contributes regularly to travel and lifestyle magazines including Travel & Leisure, National Geographic Traveler, Elle, Allure, Every Day with Rachel Ray and others—you can see my work at: Published Work :: Trans-Americas Journey | Index of magazine and web site stories and reviews by writer Karen Catchpole and photographer Eric Mohl.
For the past few months I’ve been traveling full-time with a Safari SE in tow and I’ve fallen in love with Airstreams and with the Airstream community (I do a blog about it at: Trans-Americas Airstream Road Trip.
Therefore, I’m very excited about my latest assignment which is a piece about the wonderful, whimsical, wacky and way out ways Airstream owners have customized the interior design and décor of their travel trailers for Country Living magazine.
I’m not looking for simple upgrades. What I need are examples of Airstreams whose interiors have been substantially and creatively changed. So, if you’ve re-done the interior décor and/or re-built or re-designed aspects of your trailer’s interior I want to see pictures, including a picture of you! I also need answers to the following basic questions. Please reply to me with images and answers by clicking on TransAmerica in the upper left hand corner and choosing the private message function.
  • Your name, age, occupation and geographic location:
  • What year/make/model is your Airstream?
  • How, when and why did you get the Airstream?
  • How much time and money have you spent customizing the interior?
  • When was the work completed?
  • Why did you make the décor or design changes that you’ve made?
  • What other Airstreams do you own/have you re-done?
  • What was the inspiration for the interior décor you’ve adopted? For example, if it’s a themed décor, why did you choose that particular theme? If there’s a color them, why did you choose that color?
  • What do you mostly use your Airstream for? For example, is it permanently parked and used as a residence? Is it still towable and used for travel?
The owners of trailers that are ultimately chosen for my story will be interviewed and photographed for the final feature.
Many thanks,
Karen

Thanks for the travel photos and stories. We have been to many of the same places with our 1962 Airstream Safari. OK.... your photos are better.

Now for some shameless self promotion. I PM'ed info on our trailer that won the "Best of Show" this summer at the Vintage Trailer JAM. Mostly I think mostly for the interior work we did as part of restoring it. Have to figure out the best way to get some photos to you.
Thanks again
Gary

Thanks i enjoyed your link to your adventures. Thank you both for sharing. Timeless trailers have done some interesting things to trailers and for design David Winnick has redone some gorgeous old gals.

Thanks for sharing! I believe you're the lady who left a business card on our windshield in a WalMart one day. We emailed with you a couple of times, but we don't blog, MySpace, YouTube, Twitter, etc.

We are not highly creative and unique, but have done some customizing and are teeny-tiny, highly organized and very functional. Will send you some photos, anyway. (After we are dug out of the snow and heading south in a week or so.)
