Someone's Airstream Dream May not be your Idea of Bliss

Well this guy thought he was Creating a masterpiece and Mona Lisa as it were in his own mind. The items that he restored and renewed is long, he probably invested a small fortune. But when I looked at the end result I want to find the nearest bathroom. But it's just not my taste I guess. Take a look see what you think.

Yep...it's on those bugs that are that color so nothing will eat them because they are poisonous

I'm not sure some of those pictures will help sell the trailer, like this one:

That is one very interesting listing. It has the longest narative I have ever seen. The pictures don't seem to match up. In some shots it has a textured wall finish and in others it is a plain wall. It is listed as an 82 on ebay and an 81 here on the forums. The seller is from Washington and the listing is from Northern California. The whole thing leaves me confused. I went to the persons website and found this little bit of information that the seller noted about his ebay listing.

It's very lengthy! but it's impressive and I'm very proud! One eBay tech told me they thought it was the best listing they'd ever seen!
I wish the seller good luck with the sale......

You know what they say about beauty is in the eye of the beholder, anyone seen my glasses?

Actually, I kinda like it. A 25 year old Airstream is allowed to be a bit funky and eclectic.

this unit is from a long time member here named CAT, and was seemingly much loved by them..It is selling and the bids are going up.... so what we think about the decor as non-bidders is pretty much irrelevant, although interesting.
There are many units out there with interiors I personally could not tolerate but that is what makes this part of our hobby all so cool.

The stone is the part I do not understand. The picture looks like the front of the trailer, but when you see the other picture of the front sofa, there is no stone. Am I looking at two different places or what?
