We were able to move it in and out of the door by just letting it hang like a giant upside down taco and carefully manuvering it through the door. It was very tight, but Airstream either designed it...

Beautiful work on the belly pan. That was unquestionably the most difficult part of our restoration - and we had the shell off. Yours looks great and the 6061 will probably hold up very well to...

That's what I did. It's worth looking around on prices. I think I dropped over $400 on all my wiring supplies. All these goodies add up quick.

Sounds like you are making good progress.

Mark,

The top bunks are a bit smaller than the bottom bunks and are probably only suitable for young children (maybe up to 9 or 10 years old and up to about 100 pounds I'd guess). The top bunks...

Great update on your progress. Everything is looking first class. I wish I had some good advice on the riveting, but I found it really came down to lots of practice. Once you get it figured out,...

Mark, here is a recommended fix that Inland Andy posted a while back. I went with this on my rebuild. It involves a couple of pieces of angle iron welded to the side of the frame towards the rear,...

Hah, I love the Hillbilly smokestack! Mine didn't have one. I think they are part of the alure of the older trailers. If you don't re-use the Panel Ray heater, there probably isn't much use for...

Not sure what you are planning for the interior, but it is a lot easier to replicate the curves with the old cabinets as templates to follow. I found a lot of the old parts were very useful in my...
