Interior remodeling of 1996 34' Excella 1000

Thought y'all might be interested in my winter project. The 1996 34' Excella was bought from the original owner, and had only been towed less that 5,000 miles. It was in really good shape, except for the age of some of the components. It's finally done, (I think), and we're ready to use it.

We still have the 2001 30', and are trying to decide which one to sell.

Enjoy.

Larry

More pics of the '96 Excella 1000

In the previous post, the first four are the "before" photos. Here are the rest of them. I ran out of space on the first.

Another new addition to the '34 today. I installed the range hood conversion kit that is made by Fabulous Products.....Very worthwhile product, now we have a decent light over the stove, and the fan moves enough air that it will ventilate the coach witha window open...

Nice work!

Can I ask a favor? Can you take a set of full 360 degree photos of the sleeping area? I have two twins in my trailer and would love to convert to a queen bed. I am just trying to get an idea of how everything fits.

LarryC,
Have a pic of the range hood conversion?
How is the fan noise and light in comparison to the old?

I didn't take pictures, sorry. But the finished appearance id's pretty much the same as the original.
The noise level is in my opinion is at least 75% less and the light is very bright. It is well worth the money and effort.

Thanks, my wife wants to entertain converting our twin beds to a queen bed. I just want to see what an original one looks like.

That's exactly what we're going to do! So, now, we've got a 2001 30' Excella that is for sale.
I remodeled it a couple years ago, and it has been one of the best Airstreams we've owned. I sorta hate to see it go..

That's what we decided! The extra room is nice. I think we can have dances in the new room!
