Thanks !

A seamstress my family has used before is coming over this weekend to pick up the cushions and the Nauga-soft artificial leather. I expect the project will be complete in a couple of weeks.

The airstream color scheme is themed to match Stanford University - we do lots of tailgating during football season - here is roughly what the upholstery will look like:




Almost makes you feel sorry for the poor Naugas who gave their all to make my trailer beautiful...

Oh my goodness!! This is SO beautiful! We have an '82 International 31' and two very quickly growing boys. The original gaucho is just not cutting it...especially when we are driven inside by the weather. I was just searching "wrap around couch" and your incredible work popped up. We can't wait to get started. If you don't mind, I have a few questions regarding the table: Do you have a photo of the table all set up? When the table top is down in the bedding position, did you have to support it in the center with anything? I know it's 7 months past, but if you have time to either post a photo of the table or just email it to me at stacyllamazales@comcast.net. Thank you so much!

Drucker,
Fantastic, Beautiful, Inspirational! How will your table be mounted? Will you use a marine post that lowers and raises? Where did you get the bent wood corners on the frames?

This looks great. What did you make your table out of?

Front gaucho conversion to dinette or L lounge

The table is lightweight mdf, I plan to cover it with laminate, that I'm using on the kitchen counter and the long storage counter in the rear.
