December 2021 Photo Contest

Thanks Jeffmc306 for selecting my photo last month. Now I have the privilege to create this months contest.

During the restoration of my Safari, I listened to all the episodes of the Vintage Airstream Podcast. Every December they would air an edited "interview" with Wally Byam. There is one phrase that really caught my attention, an Airstream is like "traveling with fifth avenue on wheels".

So, this month I would like to see what makes your trailer like fifth avenue on wheels. What little touches make it luxurious and special.

As an example, this little vase and cloth flowers adds way more value than their cost. Looking forward to seeing what makes your trailer special. - Mark

Perhaps not the most attractive photo, but absolutely the most luxurious addition to my trailer is the custom mattress from Brothers Bedding in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Custom Belt Molding

The chrome was coming off the trim so I custom color matched new trim to match our 2021 Ram 2500.

1963 on the outside, 2021 on the inside

Our 1963 Overlander spent 20 years abandoned in a shut down hunting club. We are almost done with a complete tear-down and rebuild refresh. The interior is luxurious to us, from a marble tile bathroom to custom cabinets and an electric fireplace. Waiting for a triple recliner to be available (supply chain issues) and the roof air conditioner to be installed. New tinted window glass going in and I am polishing the exterior.

Very nice! The blue is sooo serene. Much improvement over the original decor,I am sure, and the Charlie Brown tree is a nice touch . We went artificial this year. $45 thrift store treeClick image for larger version

I am tempted to not donate it back and keep for next year.

Your Minuet has much better decor than this 1974 Argosy we explored before ending up with our 2006 Safari

BTW, we were here in June 2019 for a church conference. Camped three nights here. I would guess you know the place. Prior to that was 12 Mile Beach, Lake Superior Click image for larger version
