He's a pretty good worker and we seem to work well together (this means he can take orders because I am bossy!)

The problem with the bumper (or the part of the frame that holds the bumper on) is that it is almost gone - I could poke my ice pick right through it - it has cancer really bad. I think if I ground it, there wouldn't be much left.....

I'll do what I can do.....I'm pretty good with tools, etc. I'm just discouraged with everything.

If it is that bad then it probably wont do any good to mess with it.
Suggestion withdrawn.
I agree with the above advice that this is a long term project, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I would find and fix any leaks, however.

You will become more familiar with your trailer the better you will feel about it all.
Does boyfriend have a tool box?

I think I have more tools than him - he's always borrowing something from me! We'll get it....I'm pretty resourceful. I built a pretty nice window seat after I turned the couch - I made a dinette......I'll get it done eventually.

Thanks.

I agree with Daniel B and Chris. You have a bit of a problem but not too major. Every time I see fresh paint I just see that someone is covering a problem. When I got mine the whole street side bumper support was gone! I had to splice weld the whole rear section. Along with most of the outriggers and totally rebuilt the step area. I am just a few moves away from putting her back together, the 18th of this month has been a year. Don't despair you own an Airstream! Too bad the po didnt level with you, being shady is his karma. Being upset after the fact wont get things fixed. My po totally lied about everything about my trailer, then dropped it 100mi away and ran! Left me with no lights or brakes had to rewire it in the middle of the high desert with the belly pan falling off!
