Interior Cabinets, tables, Gauchos

Does anyone knows of a place in Southern California where I could take my Safari 1979 to have the interior furniture done??
It was completely gutted, Zolatone painted, polished to a mirror, all lights changed to LED, all gaskets, screen windows and doors replaced replaced, new plumbing and all system check to perfect working order. The bathroom is completely finished. and has a full beautiful new flooring
It has been a 3 months of arduous work on this project.
Now I need the woodwork in the front area, which is beyond my capability; need a Gaucho, Dinette with table, counter around the sink, etc.
Can anyone help??

Many thanks,
Rupert

Inland RV has been customizing AS trailers for decades. Movie stars and the rest.

Slow over is it possible you are mixing that up with Uwe's business, Area 63 Productions, off the 15 outside of Rancho Cucamonga.

Uwe business, Area 63 Productions is definitely in southern CA. About 60 or so miles east of LA near Rancho Cucamonga.

He also not far from Andy at Inland in Corona CA also in southern CA.

Not Inland RV

Based on the first reply, I headed yesterday to Inland RV in Corona.
Lots of traffic both ways 2 1/2 hours ride.
Was told that they haven't worked on AS trailers in years!!
Their business is only parts.

A good wood worker/cabinet maker should be able to handle this. I would try to find someone local.

SoCal company for interior

I know MEL Trailers is in SoCal. Don't know if they are still in business or not. Their website is still alive (http://www.meltrailer.com/get-started). I would suggest you call them first.

Interior work

There used to be several other trailer restoration outfits in SoCal but it looks like most have moved out. Retroluxe Vintage Trailers moved to Placerville, CA and looks like they are still going strong. Just finished a Silver Streak, according to their Facebook page. They have a website too - http://www.retroluxevintagetrailers.com/About.html - Definitely want to call them before driving up there.

You might call Hoffman in Santa Barbara and ask them or on their YouTube page they have interviews with different builders. One of the interviews is a guy in San Diego named SoCal Vintage Trailer Design that looks pretty good.

Villa Furniture

RupertJ
For Dinettes and any Chairs and any Upholstery.........There is no better Than
Villa Intl Furniture! They do most of the higher end Furniture. Beautiful and they are in S.Cal. They are in Cerritos about 20 min South of downtown.
Ask for Robert. He is one of the more creative I have ever met. They have a website.....Google Villa furniture for RV.
