The interior on the Tradewind was in pretty good condition when we rescued her. Airstream refered to the cabinetry of that era as Perma-Tech Furniture. I decided to keep the frames but replaced the laminate with ¼ inch Hickory plywood. It slips into the extruded framing just as the plastic did.
The thinner laminate strips on the face frames are either milled from Hickory stock or trimmed down “Iron On” edge banding.
The ply is slightly lighter in weight than the laminate and looks so much nicer when stained.
