Good luck, TCL ...

... it's a lovely house. This is probably my last chance to ask about the mosquito netting (?) that hangs off your back porch like something from the Delano. Those curtains weren't possibly on a track were they?

It's fourty yards of a basic white sheer fabric. They were on rods for easy removal. That's something I'm going to miss... The backyard in spring. But it looks like crap Hot July through March...LOL

Ron (and Tony),

Been lurking through your messages...Wow--I thought it was Ralph you were going to try to keep (I suppose I'm confused here). It looks like the trailer is pretty close to ready to roll state--that aluminum interior is pretty darn spectacular!

The plans sound exciting (though maybe that's not the way it feels right now). Considering that you'd always identified your homeplace as "St. Louis Misery." Are you going to go full-time? Or is another city in mind? Either way, what an awesome prospect!

Let us know when the trailer gets listed, we'll be rooting for you!

Mary

12 volt rope light...

I just found this thread today and I really like the look of the aluminum overlay. I may have to give it a try myself.

I noticed mention of 12 volt rope lighting here. I have in mind to use some for indirect lighting myself (when I get a little further along in my remodeling process) and would be interested in anyone else's experience with it. In case you are having trouble finding it I did locate 3 different web sites that carry the stuff as follows:

I've got them too. For indirect lighting in the shower and down the sides of the trailer in cabnets. We are not to that stage yet, either. silver suz

price is rising

It's up to $7,100 with a little over two days to go. Serious bidders in upstate new york, looking for me to deliver too, one in vegas, also looking for me to deliver, and one in France... if that one wins, I'm hiding in the closet until it gets there...LOL.

Suz... Aluminum, everywhere there was a raw corner or edge, it got aluminum trim.

It's really sharp.

More pics will be available tonight... fridge and microwave arent' in yet, and the polishing is almost done...

Thanks for watchin!

Boy it sure turned out nice! I hope ours comes out half as nice as that.

I think we will be doing the same treatment to our uppers with the lexan. Ours already slide like that so it will be real easy.

I was at a wedding, and a friend was yelling all of this in my earpiece, ... it was the best wedding I've ever been to....LOL...

Holy crap is right. Please inform the new owner of the forums so we can help them out with the "unchecked systems."

WOW! Part of me is inspired to start mine but the rest of me is overwelmed. Thats hard work! My husband Mark thinks we should order the whole roof locker from airstream. (we got the detail drawing from them) but I was hoping we could only order the outer white veneered "cover" and door tracks and the plexiglass doors and just use the shelves we have as the interior. Any ideas how they fit together? Your encap looks awsome. Do you want to come to the outerbanks for a little R&R and do mine? I think I can handle the walls. Oh one more question . . How are you cutting around the windows?

WOW what a great price but you did do some awsome work on it. It's worth it.
Gives me hope on ours. Though we never plan to sell the 59 since it is a family heirloom, I know I could well have that $12k in before long if we doo all we have talked about doing. Just sometimes have to stop and wonder if it's worth it. See the pictures of yours has been a inspiration to get working on ours again.
