Well, I know it is not going to be "Airstream correct" but I am fairly sure it will be structurally solid. As I said in my intro, our 1948
liner will be getting a bathroom in the back and beefing up of the frame work. Here is the start of the frame. I used 2" x 4" tubing to connect the frame to the u shaped channel that the axles are bolted to in two areas. I also jacked the wheel wells back into place and welded angle to hold them in place, along with new brackets for the entry step. I am on a budget and am more concerned with the project being safe than period correct, though we will try to keep the interior mostly to the era. Next is to replace any rotting wood in the front and adding some bracing between the aluminum frame before I run new electric and replace the floor.
