Overview She had been sitting infront of a rental house for over 11 years and was being used as a storage locker full of cardboard boxes and stuff. She had sank into the Florida dirt up to the frame. Three of the four tires held air long enought to get her out of the trenches and over to get new tires. Trees and bushes grew up around her over the years.

Standard, now working on removing the original clear coat and starting the polishing. After removing all the vines, spiders, etc. from her windows & door she received a good soap and water bath. Removed the old awning and started on working on the windows. The interior was completely stripped, cleaned and repaired.

She has been gutted. Floors repaired, walls washed down about 3 times. Painted the interior walls, sanded and refinished the original wood doors. New counter top, sinks and faucets. New toilet. Removed the fiberglass bath panels and spray painted. New flooring, bedding, curtins and lighting. Now very confortable for work and home.

Except for the bath and galley area everything is completely portable at this time.
I work and live in this little Airstream. I presently have a twin size bed across from the galley. A seating area, also used for 2nd sleeping area, on street side with a office/work area across on the curb side with six large drawers for storage under the work surface. Across the front is additional storage with 26" TV combo with DVD.

Systems and Running Gear
Still under renovation but getting close to inside being completed. Photos to come soon.
