Doesn't work for me. I have no problem towing the A/S and the retro style and bed just doesn't float my boat.

Taking labor out, what do you reckon these cost in materials alone?

It may largely depend on how much you pay for a vintage Bowlus before starting the restoration /remodel work.

Thinking??

No, we've moved on to obsessing.

I'm not sure I like the rear overhang on the bowlus. It's sexy as hell but I would dent the rear in many locations I like to camp.

New Bowlus prices seem to be climbing even faster than new Airstream prices. Sad face.

Edit: Don't want to derail this thread, but we also still can't get past the "cassette" toilet concept. Fit RV did an entertaining assessment of a cassette toilet not too long ago. Pretty sure a composting toilet would have been a better call. https://www.thefitrv.com/rv-tips/cas...let-smackdown/

That's funny as hell, that link.

I don't think too much of those afraid to try something new, or getting their hands dirty (beneath them; for the proles in flyover country or Third World immigrants), so have learned to ignore most RV blogs when I run across it. Nothing there for me, in other words.

But I'd agree that it'd have to be a paying job to keep that thing in operation, ha!

Thanks. Good job, Rocinante.
