Vendor for Complete Overhaul???


I was just wondering if there is anyone out there that knows of someone that will completely renovate a vintage airstream trailer? I live in Western Canada, and finding anyone in Canada that would do this is a complete and total loss. I would like to stay in the Pacific Northwest if I can. I have found a few people on the internet, but they tend to be in areas like Texas, which is not really convenient.

But really, looking for someone that can do a total renovation that would include changing the floor plan. As my wife's back is not getting any better we need to do some remodeling that would include a "real" bed as opposed to a pull out couch. With kids, it is also easier to incorporate something where we are not always having to make up beds every night. Of course, if we find someone that would also be able to do the exterior restoration at the same time than that would be a bonus.

After recently having visited a local RV Show here in Edmonton, I am even more convinced that we spend our money doing a renovation and overhaul than to buy anything new. There is nothing with the charm or the personality or the character of an airstream afterall...

I'm not sure of anyone in the PAC-NW, but down in Southern California, Uwe does great work. He's a long-time poster here on the Airforums, as well as a commercial vendor who performs Airstream restorations/renovations.

Here's a link to his website.

Good luck!

Here's a couple more options:


Vintage Travel Trailers (Airstreams) for Sale | Airstream Restoration | Vintage Airstreams | Custom Travel Trailers

Good luck!

I have a guy for you in Northern California - he's in Benecia just outside San Francisco - he's doing a ton of work on our 1992 Sovereign and I've seen some of his other work - he's good, very detail oriented and reliable as well! It's Avalon RV in Benecia - avalon-rv home Ask for Adam - he's the owner and has a team that works with him. We've already had some work done .. he did the kitchen countertop in my Avatar...we're changing out almost everything except the cabinets
