So I have had a lot of people ask me if I work on other people's airstreams, but not one has stepped up with the " I have a beautiful single daughter and a crappy old airstream " ploy. I'm disappointed

What is your plans for 2 part foam - under carriage, walls, or both? I was thinking of foam on a '73 Tradewind that I'm working on. Seen some horror stories on the threads about heat damaging (warping) shell when used for walls. I like the idea for belly/undercarriage - except for awkward installation.

The floor is getting two inches of closed cell foam board. The spray foam is for the shell, it will be sprays in 2" thick on top of the HSC-1000 ceramic. I have used it before and never had a heat problem. I will report on the results.

I wont be able to buck the rivets that connect the lower sides to the center strip on the belly so I am using sealed aluminum rivets as they are truly sealed and stronger than pop rivets - McMaster-Carr - they are a little long but seem to work well.

What's on the 4th floor (that thing you're building has how many floors?)—ladies with no garments? I guess they wouldn't be "ladies".

By the time they are actually in your trailer, you'll be able to look up and see their undergarments...

Does king size bunk beds count as floors? That would make the third floor pay per view.
