JW,

Thanks so much -- I have spent so much time inside our "girl", I was actually able to visualize every step as you led us on the "tour". This was helpful; we need a larger frig and need to sleep together

I plan to go inside when it warms up and try various layouts using large pieces of cardboard to see what works for us, making certain we can actually move around inside for the one we choose.

Thanks for the offer of emailing the pics, but your description was very clear and extremely helpful.

Thanks again.

Deb

I'm not certain what happened, but I was logged in, typed a long reply, sent it, and then was told again I wasn't permitted to post on my thread. I'll try again, but a shorter version........

Nope, they didn't buy our little girl "Lily", she's still very much with us. I'm not certain why the OP posted that on my thread tho, that was confusing.

My DH and I have both had some medical issues, and my Dad, who lived with us for almost 8 yrs., declined and eventually passed on, about five months shy of 100 yrs old! I really miss my Dad, I couldn't have asked for a greater Dad.

We have been talking about getting back to working on Lily, although I am still somewhat stuck on figuring out a floor layout which gives us a dedicated bed for two, a taller frig, and a shower stall, along with the other necessities. We're willing to do without a small dinette if need be. Our new grey tank (which my DH built and installed) is located in the back end going East/West, so all of the water usage should be located back there as well, I imagine. Fresh water will be under the bed.

I'll post more as we go.

Deb

I know Becky posed the question, but on behalf of others of us following along on your thread, can I just say that I'm happy you didn't sell your "little girl"! I bet the poster meant to ask on the historian's thread (can't remember the title offhand)... but perhaps s(he) was also reading your thread... sorry about the loss of your dad!

Sum75, hello. Thank you for your very nice reply. My Dad was a very special, loving man, as well as WWII Veteran who understood how difficult life can be at times. There are times when one must slow down and handle life, then pick back up later, and that's what we have been doing.

I thought that the OP may have been new here (I didn't notice when s(he) signed up on AirForums) and wasn't certain how to start a new thread possibly.

Also, thank you for following along and for caring about our little girl and our progress with her. This past Spring I spoke with a cabinetmaker who agreed to build the cabinets for her once we decide upon the layout. I am excited to get back to working on her.

Deb

Deb,
I got our ideas for our trailer layout from looking at the vintage AS website. There are multiple layouts there, and you might find one that helps you. We did a mid ship double bed layout with rear bath (where it originally was). Cardboard mock ups and painters tape help with visuals.
Sorry about your dad's passing. Mine was also a WW2 vet.
Good luck!

Kay

Glad to hear you still have your little girl, Deb. Sorry about your dad. You got to enjoy him for a long time, but it's still not easy to lose loved ones.

Hi Kay and Becky! Thanks to both of you regarding my Dad. I was very fortunate to have him for so many years. He was the type that you just knew he would be there for you whether for advice or when he was younger he helped others build their homes, or anything they needed help with -- whether you were family or friend, he was always there. As such, I did my best to be there for him in his later years.

Thank you, Kay, for the tip about the vintage Airstream site -- I had totally forgotten about that site!! OMG, what a great idea! I'm going to check it out.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

Deb
