She is in need of some serious TLC and some corrosion repairs but she has good bones and we got a SMOKIN' deal!!!! Let the fun begin.

Nice rig!! Looks like you do need some weight distribution on it though.

Agreed, that picture was literally the short drive home from buying her. We were just excited to bring her home, I didn't even have any air in the airbags on the truck.

It did come with a WD hitch, however it was set up for the two wheel drive TV of the previous owner, so the ball was way too high.

Once we got home I was able to make the adjustments to set the hitch to the proper height for our lifted Dodge 4x4.

The twin beds really offer the most bedding. Considering the gap space between the mattress and walls, they are the equivalent of a half king bed.

True, but when you have slept with the same person for nearly 20 years it's just not right to have them across the hall!

Clearly your partner doesn't dance in his sleep. Mine is quite light on his feet, but kinda heavy on my shins if there's not enough room in the bed.

Congratulations!! She's a beauty. My partner and I bought a FC 20 this fall and could only use it once. Those two nights in the bed were no problem, but we'll see how cramped sleeping gets we take her out on longer trips. We're both short (me, 5 ft 7; he, 5 ft 5), so length of the bed is not the problem. After these holidays, however, we may have to worry about the width!

Then there's the dog (only a 40 lb Brittany) who may have to sleep on the dinette.

Wishing you luck on your adventures and can't wait to see more pictures.

Well we finished the new floors this week.
We sort of did a reverse on the new Internationals colors, we did a dark floor to contrast the light cabinets.
We couldn't be more thrilled with the way they came out.








Now if Camping World could just get their act together and send us the right mattress we can actually take the AS out for a trip!

Love it! It turned out great. We are looking at the same product for our 19' Bambi with a soft spot but now we have a plan for a new look!

We were going to, however we took them to a local dry cleaner had had them do a really deep clean and they came out pretty nice.

Another bonus for us, when we were taking all of the easy fixtures out to do the floors we found a box under the bed with the factory bed spread and throw cushions in it! We figured that stuff was long gone as the previous owner had removed the mattress before we bought it. Now all we need to buy is sheets for the rounded corner mattress.

The rig looks awesome inside and out, and you have only just started. The wheels add bling and the floors are beautiful. The darker color will appear less dirty between cleanings and seem to make the hallway longer! Enjoy

Wa Hoo, Camping World finally got it right! Our ROUND corner Sleep Number bed showed up today in two boxes. (On their first try they sent us one with four square corners) It took me about 15 minutes to assemble and load in the Airstream.

What a difference from our old Airstream's small and very hard bed!!!!!! My hubby is away on a business trip but that didn’t stop me from taking a little nap with our dogs on the new mattress


So we've invested a little over $3000 in repairs and upgrades to get our "new to us" airstream into shape, but I can honestly say this was the best money spent so far!
