Wish I had your weather, looks gorgeous. Where I am it's 38 degrees outside with a high of 53 today. I'm about shut down for the winter.
Just returning from my summer break...now I get to work on the airstream for the next 10 months of good weather...

After many delays I was able to finally complete the mock-up of the holding tank supports.

That is first class design and fabrication work on the frame and installation of the tanks! Too bad it will all be covered up.

Look what followed me home last night! I have my hands full with this 1948 project but I couldn’t pass it up. There is a 1963 Safari hiding under that patina. MsRivet calls it a “Hot Mess!”

Safe Travels!!

You have a pretty severe case. No known cure.
The shell looks pretty nice except for a little dirt.

Back to work!!

After taking a break for the TCT 100th Winter Convention and making a trip to California for the Vintage Trailer Boot Camp I’ve been able to get back to the Liner. After much thought on the subject and having a bad experience with fiberglass insulation on our 2004 International, I decided to proceed with closed cell foam under the subfloor. Over the weekend I was able to complete the ends.

Nice job insulating the front area. I think that Rmax is one of the best materials to use for insulating this area.

Thanks Dan! I agree about using RMax under the floor. I used it when I had to cut out the last 22” of the floor in our 04 international due to floor rot from the usual leak at the rear bumper. Attached is a picture of the only fiberglass insulation left in the belly pan outside of the frame rail. There was even less between the frame rail area. After seeing how poorly it performed I couldn’t force myself to ever put it back under the subfloor of any Airstream.

I also had another productive day today and was able to complete the final install of the fresh water tank.

Hi Mr Rivet: Thanks for the information on RMax and your view of underfloor insulation. I have that job coming up pretty soon on my Overland and will seriously consider RMax.

It's fun to work on these old Airstreams.

David
