Swapable fabric is a fab idea. Get rid of the sguare cabinet construction - it doesn't fit in a round-ish trailer and wastes space. Get rid of plasic - it doesn't age well especially in the desert.
How about subfloors made of Trex - no rot - ever! Cover 'em with Rhino lining. Then have pre-sized rugs that fit on top for those who like carpet. When they are too dirty to use any more, order replacements!
Use wood, bamboo, leather in light and rich colors. we added a Paduke trim to our rehabbed Argosy - made a world of diffrence in feel and appearance - kinda posh! I toured a conversion coach last week that had leather walls - It was lovely. Burnished hides with rivets to hold in place.
How about anodized interiiors - pick a color - any color. Gold, red, white....
How about a loft?
What you're asking about is what most of us have done with our vintage trailers. we have updated and improved to our liking. I recommend that they attend a tin can tourists rally and tour trailers for ideas - see what the truely "out of the box" thinkers have done.
So when can i place my order?
YES to the TREX floors, rhino linings and pre-sized carpet. I've got the CCD with inexpensive vinyl - and buy runner rugs at Wal-Mart or Home Depot - when they get dirty, or I get bored with them - toss and get new.
I'd really like a better mattress (and I just spent $400 for a custom made one for my 22ft CCD - it's innerspring and OVAL so it can be flipped from side to side so it won't wear out on the exit side.)
I slept on it last night for the first time and I woke up today feeling 10 years younger and 5 pounds thinner!
Replaceable cushion covers YES, YES, YES! I've got the royal blue CCD covers and while they are very nice they are a lint magnet and everything shows on them. I see mattress ticking covers coming soon. Ooooh, or maybe leather (but I'd better perfect the design in ticking to keep the cost of a mistake low. Anybody want the pattern after I develop it?
Thanks again Janice - sometimes I think the guys at Airstream forget how many women campers there are.
