We will be going with a laminate floor once my sbfloor repairs are complete...it's actually leftover from a house project 5 years ago and has held up really well (we don't go barefoot at all). I am considering a wood grain laminate (i.e. Formica-type) to face the cabinets and wall panels.

Simple just order brand new 2012

I am sure you could specify all materials used in airstream. It is going to be alot of work and effort getting them materials. Then paying little extra for brazilian cherry laminate and finishes. Most lighting on new ones are great! I just got back from flooring dealer lumber liquidators. One item that really had wow factor Brazilian cherry with oxide finish. I am also looking at a Brazilian maple harder than american varieties.

Good luck with your Airstream. We're sure it will be gorgeous and hope that you will be "glamping" soon. We can't wait to see it!
Exactly.

We were used to backpacking at a true minimalist level, but for camping, we were slowly growing from one single 2 person tent to a 4 person, small sleeping bags to giant down assemblies with blankets and real pillows, bringing 4-6 chairs, a big table, gourmet food supplies, tons of pots and pans to prepare that food, etc. etc. This got out of control and we figured why not buy a trailer to do two things: take the "glamping" to a whole other plane of existence, and minimize the mob/demob time when changing campsites.

However, when we started thinking about the interior rebuild we decided that the style would have to be perfect and that we might not want vintage. Thus we are going fairly modern on the design, with some vintage notes.

Either way, you can't go wrong. Those ideas you have thrown out there are more than feasible, with any year. My guess is your boss is going to want a newer model Airstream, i.e. wide or wider body, not a 50's width and height. That extra space makes a huge difference and based upon the styles she is requesting, I'm thinking she'll appreciate the more open feeling to go along with it.

Good luck!

Jagers...can't wait to see pics when your AS is done - I'm sure it's going to be stunning! I'm on the side of your wife... it has to look amazing -- we picked up a perfectly nice and functional AS last summer and we've already done a ton of work and it's up at our renovation guy right now .... I personally sourced my materials from all over the place mainly residential resources as unique/high quality stuff for RV's seems to be lacking, have spent considerable time on it but it's been fun and will be so worth it! I am exercising common sense however... we've already used it a lot and I'd forgotten how dirty camping can be so the fabrics have to be both functional, clean up easily and be stunning!
