Thumbs up so far.

Really giving GOOD useful information and taking it apart properly without destroying it.

It was great to see the AirstreamForum mentioned as well as Vintage Airtream.com

I know where I will be planted every Friday evening.

These folks are lurking here. They obviously have been researching here.

So when are you folks going identify yourself and say hello?

Hey, not bad!

Well, that was pretty cool.

The RV guy didn't get into poking the floor, but the host said they'd be replacing the flooring anyway. I think the RV guy was just a little bit replace-happy, like not mentioning that the aluminum (?) tanks could be tested and updated instead of being automatically replaced.

It always amazes me how much stuff comes OUT of an Airstream. It looks so compact when it's in there, but so huge when it's stacked on the floor.

I thought this was a very good effort, and it'll be interesting to see this play out in future episodes.

59toaster,

Look up the user classicrides. He told the forum what he was doing.

Ahhh I found him. It has been 7 months since his last post. I sent a PM so maybe he will come in and make comment.

I'm really excited to see a well done Airstream rehab show.

Airstream Life magazine got nice props as well. based on the description of the finished product i think this trailer will be a real looker.

i think most of the appliances had to go. they mentioned that they were replacing the ac. the AC looks like it was replaced recently. from the top side view you could see the area where the old unit sat. i tore out my old ac unit our of my '78 excella back in july. must have been fifty screws holding the old unit in. the new dometic unit was half the weight of the old.

According to DIY and my DVR, the next episode is in the morning. Looks like they're going to work on the outside. Kewl!

I wonder if the P.O. is a member of this forum?

Thanks for the link!

Be sure to check out the "Insider Details" page, for information that wasn't in the broadcast.

The old WBCCI number was 4271, who has an old book with that number?

Hey all,

If all goes as planned, we will be having the Classic Rides host Kevin Tetz on the theVAP Episode 4 due out 10/27.

Let me know what questions you guys have for him!

I watched the last series where he restored a classic Harley. It was a great show as it provided the depth and detail not found in most 30/60 minute formats that are on today where they turn a wreck into to concourse winner in seven days. A little less "Extreme Makeover" and more "This Old House" is fine by me.

I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the series. Even though I don't think that AC needed replacement, it'll make good viewing to watch them replace each system one by one, deal with the floor, cover polishing, update the interior, etc. All without getting off my sofa - Perfect!

tim, nice score with the interview!

how about some obvious basic questions like - what did they spend on the project? where is the trailer now? what were the total number of man hours put into the project? will a dvd of the entire series become available?

Watched it tonight. I wasn't sold on the yellow color when he started the paint job, but after seeing it inside, it looks good.
