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.
Here are some photos;

I have given up on the house from a previous post just didn’t feel right, so I move on. Now I have another project to occupy my efforts. I published this on another blog I have about my RV adventures this is to keep my readers of this blog informed about what I’m doing.
I just bought an Airstream a 1969, 29′, Ambassador, a friend told me about it a few weeks ago and I went and looked at it. The poor thing has been sitting in the desert alone for a few years and needs lots of TLC. I don’t have any photos I can share yet, as soon as I do I’ll post them.
I plan to use this trailer as a Guest House so she won’t be hitting the road after she gets to my house. I’ll clean her up and paint her inside and wash it outside then remove the shag carpet put down some laminate flooring, repair and replace where needed and I’ll build a roof over it to protected the trailer from the desert Sun. I’ll also skirt the trailer and replace some appliances. I want my guests to be happy in my Guest House.
I’m excited to have a new project to work on. Here are photos of someone else’s Airstream of a similar era and model.
🙂I am eager to get started on this project as it may require a lot work to make into a nice guesthouse. I am looking forward to the challenge .
