Travelin' fancy

So, for the past several days, I have been doing a deep-cleaning and general spiffying-up of our Safari, Sparky. The floor is waxed to a high sheen, the rugs have been cleaned, the fridge scrubbed, and yet I felt something was missing. Then I saw this ad on Craigslist and figured out what was wrong - my Airstream doesn't have any chandeliers! My style of camping must be a bit more primitive than what these folks are used to...

Looks pretty fabulous. Not my taste, but well done, for sure.

Not exactly a CCD is it?

I agree about the Best Little W....

It could also be the private railroad car for The Wild Wild West

Or if there was a coffin pick a Dracula movie.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

One could hold sťances in that puppy. I remember one house my parents had and the wallpaper was sort of a velvety red and gold and when they sold the house I thought that's the last I'll ever see anything like that, and then this shows up. So would this be where someone really pimps their Airstream?

Mel, Thanks again for the Mark's RV site. We are getting ready to put the
gasket and toilet back. And then deep cleaning (similar to what you have done). Thanks again, Aria

Oh my!

And I thought my Birdy was overdone! I expect the former owner of that one to be Mae West, not some guy named Jim!

Tasteful it's not, but certainly imaginative and fun.
