Land Yacht


Next project on the list...the Airstream.  Did some research on repairing windows.  Figured out what I have to do to clear the bubbled tinting that is sandwiched inside each one.  While tallying up what will have to be repaired, I discovered something that I seem to have missed in the couple of years I have owned this albatross.  One of the windows had been sealed from the inside when one of probably many interior rapes had occurred.  Decided that the only logical option is to completely gut the the inside.  This is gonna take awhile.  84,101,75,0,B

I live in a patched 1958 Airstream Flying Cloud 22'. Other than an Avion or Sliver Streak, you're way better off with this beat-up and gutted Airstream than any other trailer. I've seen RV trailers less then 2 years old with leaks everywhere when it rains. My 56 year old Airstream doesn't leak! I'd throw up a very light shelter over the Airstream if I could. Even with a good AC unit, Airstreams are hard to cool. I only wished I could have found and afforded a much larger Airstream.

Is this the same Airstream that the host of Where the Wild Men Are stayed in? Doesn't look the same. ~Sherri

Container Project?

I was actually looking for an old Airstream to redo when I found and purchased my Caboose. It's probably a good thing, with my limited woodworking skills the radius interior may have been too big a challenge for me.

What do you mean "interior rape"? Is that a play on words? Does exterior rape exist?

Were you saying many people were raped in the air stream or just that the interior was stripped out?
