Why ask?

Sparkleplenty asked:
Quote:
does anyone think it's a particularly BAD idea to paint the interior of a newer model?
March not into the austere army unless you so choose. Why do all the folks who promote unchanged authenticity not wear their hair and clothes in a 1960's style?
BTW I fully respect their choices, if they're happy I'm happy.
Pink it...... Hot pink if you please.
For the life of me I can't understand the urge to ask the "community" what or how to dress the trailer (although there are some designers on the forum). If your name's on the title paint it title pink. Or cover the outside with sequins. What's it matter what we think? Ya know sequins might look good in the airstream letters up front though.
Come to think of it some of the finer things in life are pink. So it is, if you listen to legend, appropriate.....I guess.

sorry!
because I thought this was a forum where we could ask anything and get advice from people who have owned their rig a lot longer than me and because I was concerned I'd never be able to trade it in for a bigger one someday or I could possible somehow DAMAGE something by not using the right paint or something. BELIEVE ME, I am not asking for decorating advice.
thanks to everyone who responded though.

No need to apologize. The site is about educating yourself in things Airstream. Asking advice is a good thing.

As to the color, as long as it is done is such a way that it is not damaging the trailer, go for it. This means proper prep and using a proper paint that will hold up for a long time. If you use normal paint you may have issues with it peeling later.

I agree with many of the posters. Make it so YOU enjoy it. If and when you decide to sell it there will be someone that wants what you have. It may make it take a bit longer to sell, but a buyer will be there eventually.

Remember to post pictures!

Whew!!!

I was afraid that I was going to get yelled at by someone for changing the thread to revolve around me....that wasn't the point, but since bold colors came up, I jumped at the chance to show off the house....

THanks X-Ray, hope to have more pics of the rehab posted tonight....THe aluminum is almost done, other than going back and nit-picking the little things, and dented panels that need to be replaced.

Hey Sparkle, I think you should go for it, and sorry about those of us that ramble on, and change the subject. I hope thenewkid was able to answer your questions, and definately share with us your pictures when you do it!!!

Thanks
ROn

oh that's o.k.! I thought it was really cool. (I do happen to be a designer). It's not so much whether anyone thought my scheme was appealing or not, but more about just the consequences of customizing a newer model's interior or not. Even though it's all mine, I seem to think I shouldn't mess with it for some reason. I think I got a lot of great feedback though so thanks again to everybody who responded.

I think that with a name like "Sparkleplenty," you simply CAN'T NOT paint your Airstream irreversibly, unequivocally, unabashedly pink!

However, I'm taking it upon myself to speak on behalf of the eventual, probable SO (subsequent owner).

"I'd like to request that no matter what color you paint the interior, that you do it cleanly, with precision that looks like you took your time and didn't goop it all over the place. Thanks."

Van,
My husband and I got a good laugh out of your "Husband's Override Card". Of course I told my husband that he does not own such a card! Thanks.

Sparkleplenty,

It's a CCD...I doubt the walls will painted pink! Go for it with all the pink upholstery, drapes, area rugs & accessories you want!

Those are all the things a new "resale" owner would replace anyways ~

my 2 cents...fwiw

i had an idea during my morning walk today.....get a landscape painter to paint a sunrise with pink hues in the front....that way you can truthfully say no matter what time you wake, that you always get up at sunrise...
