Sneakinup.........

are you preparing to use your Airstream as a mobile office? It looks very clean and cosmetic, but rather office-like. I like the new countertop on the sink, especially the way a little more counter space is provided on the front. Just wondering.

I will be using my trailer for personal use. It looks a bit sterile right now, but I am going to be installing maple flooring, and bringing in a lot of color with the couch and window shades.

I just like the high-tech look.

Would it be totally wrong of me to want to paint the inside of the trailer somehow or at least paint the cabinets???

Oh my....it is beginning....

It's YOUR trailer, do it the way you want it done! UNLESS... you plan to sell it down the road... then you might want to leave it a little more tame as the next person might not care for your 'custom' job and it may be harder to sell. Then again, if you're a superb interior designer, it may make it easier and you'll get more!

I think I said somewhere in another post... Wally Byam constantly changed and upgraded the trailers when he thought he found something that he liked better, worked better, or looked better. IMHO, what's different about updating one of the older trailers to make them more friendly, comfortable, or convenient? That's what Airstreams are all about. Many of us are comfortable with the factory interior decorating. Many aren't. If you're not, make it the way you want it.

I hope my earlier comments in this thread were taken tongue-in-cheek as that's certainly how they were intended. Sneakinup... your interior is going to be VERY custom, and one you can be proud of. Enjoy it!

Roger

No problem here!

An Airstream renovation should be an expression of our own wants and needs, and an expression of each of our personalities. That's what makes them so much fun!

The basic exterior design is there to get the oohs and ahhs of passers by, and the womb like inside is ours to enjoy (and on occasion show off!)

I say anything goes!
