A one piece vinyl floor covering is not ever recommended.

In time, it will crack at every seam in the floor.

That's why Airstream quit that program many years ago.

Use regular floor tile and seam it at the floor seams.

Check all the exterior gaskets, especially the sewer vent pipe cover gaskets.

20 years is a long time for gaskets. Recent reports have listed sewer vent pipe cover gaskets lasting only 2 years.

Keeping the trailer waterproof, pays many dividends.

If the trailer was parked for an extended period of time, check the axles out.

Make sure the brakes and bearings have recently been properly serviced, and that the running gear is properly balanced.

Welcome to Airstream family and, to the forums~!!
When you talk of curtains, there's really only two ways to do it..
Either make em yourself or..
Get that professional look, contact the folks that will give you custom made curtains for years and years of enjoyment..

Hi Andy,

I'm confused?

When I was at the Factory in 2007 they were laying down seamless something, have they changed the flooring to 12x12 floor tile in the 2008-2009 line?

In 2007, knowing I was going to replace my carpet, I asked Don, our factory guide, what the seamless flooring they were using was, and he said it was vinyl.

Should I have glued down 12x12 tile squares instead?

I have 3 seams in my 28 footer and now I'm worried
