2. What kind of insulation is behind there? it's "squishy so i know there is some behind there.
3. Is there a second skin behind all that for the inside? Is there an exterior Skin AND an interior skin.
Reason I ask is because i would REALLY like to get rid of the vinyl and insulation and have that thing shining like crazy on the inside. From what i've been reading it's a hell of a job…if you can even do it!!
I'm making my gameplan for the inside today but I really need those questions answered. Any info is greatly appreciated.!!
Shes a 62 globetrotter!
This is how your Airstream was built.
1. The interior walls are aluminum, that were painted with "Zolotone" splatter paint.
2. The insualtion between the walls is "fiberglass".
3. There is an inner skin and an outer skin, with nothing hidden in between.
To remove the interior metal, permanently, defeats the purpose of the "monocoque" construction.
Don't do it, unless the trailer will never move.
