I got work started on the Airstream Trailer

Today I get working on the Airstream; taking trash to the dump removing the sofa and wiping down surfaces and clean out cabinets. There was a lot of dirt, dust and rodent droppings to clean up. There was an older generator inside too and I got that out of the rig. I made a couple of trips to the dumpster and still have work to do tomorrow cleaning the bathroom and cabinets. I’m happy to be working on this project. It will take a while to get everything done and I’m sure there will be problems as I go along.

Here are some photos;

She’s home the Airstream that is :-)

The other night my friend brought my airstream trailer to my house and parked it for me.  It was almost dark when the trailer arrived. Since then I have been able to give it a good look-over and there are a lot of things to fix and replace. As I go through the rig I notice more and more things that have to be done. I found that the power cord is missing so for now I can’t use electricity and of course the house battery is long dead. A lot of the plastic handles and latches are disintegrating when touched so they will have to be replace as will a vent cover that is missing. The curtains, of course, are rotten and will have to be replaced. Some of the cabinet doors need repair or replacement and the couch will need to be reupholstered.

So the project begins and it will be interesting to see what happens when work is started and what other things will have to be repaired or replaced. I am happy that the trailer is now in my yard and I can get the renovation underway.
