What type of dressers. The build in storage cabinets and coat hangers hold all we need for kids.

Biggest problem so far is back of trailer has very little ground clearance and drags very easy.
Very neat!
What a great set up. We can fit one dual sport BMW and one Yamaha dirt in the back of our EB25.

Hmmm...
Dressers as in baggers-
Big fully loaded touring motorcycles with fairings, saddlebags, and tour paks/top packs/hat boxes- Gold Wings or Electra Glides-

Will fit three fullsize dirtbikes and riding gear. It has a very low rear entrance which would be good for big heavy bikes. I seen a picture somewhere that they had two Harley's in the back of a Pa.

Does it have a flux capacitor?
What happens at 88 mph?
That won't fit in an EB!

Few updates... I haven't post much lately but I'm trying to work in what I can when I can. Too many projects outside of this one...and my job.

Need to clean up the wiring (and will when I install a power switch for the subwoofer soon). I have the display for the EMS-HW30C Surge Protector mounted just inside the door on the dinette base. Other is a Stream Light rechargeable flashlight easily accessible from inside or out.




Finally got around to putting a decent safety latch on the cargo ramp. I just drilled a 5/16" holes in the peg "mapping" on each side of the trailer. The safety pins dangle on their lanyard when not plugged in.




The PA didn't come with any means on the cargo door windows of keeping prying eyes out...so I ordered a shade which is the same window configuration in the galley.


Did manage to get the screen door up. It is a convoluted arrangement but after much cussing its up and working. I ordered it from Airstream and would you believe me if I told you it was unusually cheap?...I didn't think so. If I figure $6 per mosquito excluded over the next 8 years, I may start to break even on it. I bought some aluminum sheet to "skin" the wooden parts but later realized it is laminate to match the trailer interior. I'm torn whether or not to add the skin...as I do like the look of aluminum.




The grill project...I took a gas grill that I liked but hated the base and morphed it on to the kitchen pedestal I had left over from an earlier kitchen table project. Hate to see good aluminum go to waste. I'm working on a simple docking station where it will mount just where its currently positioned for easy removal when I'm ready to use it. It will telescope up to normal table height in use.



You've seen the beginnings of one side of my garage. It's shaped up some since. From left to right, I have a Pelican case with various pigtail adapters, water hose fittings, etc. as the PA doesn't have hardly any outside storage...tire ramp above that. A slot for 4 ZipDee chairs. A larger garbage can because the only provision in the trailer is a tiny can under the galley sink. On the right end, shelves for smaller items, cordless drill w/ charging base.





On the opposite side of the trailer, I had a different objective. On top of this side, I used one of the old tie-down racks as storage for the "anchoring loops". The loops are an obstacle to walk over when not in use but I am trying to save cabinet space for other things.



The unit on this side incorporates a few permanently mounted items.



One of which is an air compressor with volume tank... In the control panel, I added two cigarette lighter sockets. They will be used to charge Bluetooth helmet communication systems...and will be used with my satellite dish when setting it up (auto satellite finder), etc.



Illuminated for weary eyes...



I ran air lines and installed quick-connectors in the "banana wrap" storage compartments on either side of the trailer. Positioned right behind the rear axle, I can use a short whip to air tires up as needed.






Above the air compressor is a charging base for a vacuum cleaner.



...it's one of those with a floor attachment.



The 2' x 4' panel mounted in the front of the rack hinges forward for storage behind same.



That same 2' x 4' panel is easily removed as it only has locator pegs at the bottom and spring-loaded safety latches at the top (as seen in the vac picture). At that point, I can invert the two Condor motorcycle wheel chocks...



...and convert it into a sturdy table for use indoors or out.





That rack, also, has a caddy for the propane bottle which I use with my grill.



My next little project is to build a caddy for my satellite thing. It will go in the road-side rear corner opposite of the grill.

Just for the record Jasperkins, there are other colors that are acceptable besides blue.



Though this trailer project was turning into a career, I believe the end is in sight now.

Jasperkins,

Shouldn't that be "CDO"?

I spent 4 solid months refurbishing/revitalizing an AS Classic 30 that had been neglected by the PO. The trailer body was in good shape but that was about it. It was a work house and I worked at it with a vengeance. Within a week of finishing it, I got a lead on the Pan America which I had been lusting after for a couple of years. In the PA deal, I traded in the Classic (at somewhat of a loss) as I didn't have the room to keep it but the next owner ought to be really happy with it as it was well sorted.

Instantly I was catapulted neck deep in another project trailer. Again, the body was in good shape but lots of little things had been neglected on the PA (furnace, hot water heater, 12v pump, tank monitors, fridge, A/C, awning, steps, cargo ramp, leaking faucets, toilet, galley table pedestal, wheel bearings, brakes, batteries, etc.) and required work just to get it up to "normal". I had many more electives that I just wanted to do, as well. So, I've been steady at working on neglected trailers for over 10 months straight.







Fortunately, my enthusiasm hasn't waned. The PA is my sixth Airstream to have owned and though I really liked the first 5, I am crazy about this one. The seller, who lurks here at times, would be disappointed to know that I would have joyfully given much more money for it, even considering its condition, due to the rarity of finding one. I held my breath until it was in my hands.

I see the big items being finished at some point in time in the near future but suspect this one will be a constant work-in-progress as I don't ever plan on parting with this one. I want it to be everything that it can be for me. I really like my 28' Signature, too, but it could be replaced tomorrow with something comparable, if needed. Many of the trailers I've owned were for "us" but with the PA, it's for "me", therefore, nothing is too much trouble for me when its for me...you see?

I was a tent camping nut as a kid, have owned travel trailers since I was 19 years old continuously (tin & stick SOBs initially), Airstreams since my late 20's and they just represent some sort of freedom to me (even sitting in the driveway). I've also been a motorcycle nut since grade school and when I see a fellow at a gas station on a motorcycle with out-of-state plates topping off with fuel with his traveling gear strapped on the back, it stirs my soul. I get the same feeling when I see an Airstream...rolling or parked. That "potential freedom" is what keeps my enthusiasm going when wrenching on them.

Eventually, I will have a Bambi (no wet bath) and a BaseCamp to complete my AS ensemble as you can never have too much "freedom".

The grill...that'd be redneck engineering. As a matter of fact, I'm doing some redneck engineering on the trailer today (pics to follow).

I'll be glad when you get down this way and get this damn Hensley hitch out of my shop floor.

BTW, I found another cool/little/biker-friendly eating joint within a mile or two of Paul B. Johnson State Park. It's called "Donanelle's" Donanelle's Bar&Grill and it is right on US49. They are only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Their menu is simple (only one salad dressing...you guessed it...Ranch) but the food is excellent. Better filet mignon than any of the steak houses in all of Hattiesburg. I've been rambling up and down that stretch of road for decades and never knew it was an eating establishment.

Cheers,

Z

I'm gonna hold out for a ProPride.
Ran into a guy at the mother ship towing a 28' with a Range Rover Sport and a ProPride.
