Very nice! Got any pics of the bathroom? Always interested to see how people deal with the deteriorating plastics of the 70's trailers...

I can get pics of bathroom later. It's original but not used by us or previous owners or anything other than emergency potty and storage. It's in fine shape and utilized as an extra closet for us. We camp at places with full facilities so I stick to using those. Less to maintain.

Dockster, did you do all the work yourself? Frame-off restoration? Was the frame reworked?

Work was actually done by a local dealer as part of the purchase agreement. They have been restoring Airstreams for a long time and know what they are doing. Very high quality work. Frame off ground up renovation.

With 2 kids (3 and 18 months) and third on the way, I have no time to take on a project such as this.

I'm kicking tires on the exact same year and model, all original. I'd love to hear what a reno like that cost you if you could please private message me if you'd like.
It looks amazing!

Post the name of the dealer if you don't mind. They need to be recognized.
