A picture with her skirt down...

or banana peeled.

I dropped the entire front perimeter of banana wrap in order to repair a few outriggers, POR15 everything, and soon, install new insulation, then wrap it all back up. I also repaired the somewhat sticky malfunctioning pull out step mechanism. Works like a charm now. Today wrapped up the rigorous nightmare of my "frame under' restoration. I am confident this trailer will out live me, because it is probably going to kill me. What a job!

No, it isn't a single axle Overlander. Hopefully I will get to the new ones next weekend. Is there a life after Airstream rebuilding?

Looking forward to seeing the Good Ship Sneakinup on the road this fall!

How was the insulation you replaced?

I think I may name her the S.S. Minnow so I can get lost at sea. Now all I need is Ginger and Marianne!

The insulation looked like I pulled it from the shelves at HD at all locations except at the passenger side in front of the steps. I had had a leak there from a screw being missing in my Zip Dee awning bracket on top of the trailer. I did find one old wasps nest and a snake skin. Fortunately, neither had any inhabitants.

June 9th is an Airstream anniversary for me. I am dragging her somewhere, wheels or no wheels!

I started putting the new axles under mine this weekend, but found that I needed a hot wrench!! It will be here in an hour and the **** axles will go in.
I'm also in a hurry to become a fulltimer.

One fantasy woman per trailer, please ... and, no, I'm not available just right now.
