herky pig

hello, been streamin for about a year with an old girl, a 57 22' ' custom. Have not been on the road yet, it's rebuilding time. Question of the day, sheet metal guage of the frame on my vintage, 17 guage? Have a few frame related issues to attend to, and need to order the proper stuff. Am a cabinet maker by trade so sheet metal is a little different to me. Cann't wait for the fun of the interior, but it's quite a bit down the road at this point. A lso any info on gray water tank installs and any suppliers would be helpful

Hi Herky, I'd be real interested in seeing your floorplan and cabinetry when you get to that point. Be sure to take pictures along the way. Is this your first Airstream? first trailer? Welcome.

I don't recall the actual numbers, but I replaced some of the frame members on my '59 with 12 gauge. I believe the original may have been around 14 gauge.

Sorry I can't verify this, my Airstream is up to the belly in snow.
