26 May 2017 We removed the old plastic cover and built around the exposed insulation with 1/2″ birch plywood. To the left of this will be the area for the other desk. Once it's completed, I'll update the post! We bought a couple of these old locker bins at a local antique shop. These will serve as our underwear drawers. We used to keep our underwear in the top cabinets in a little bin but it made it hard to find what you were looking for. We'd just stick our hand in and pull out whatever
In the '70s, the airstream designers used pressboard (MDF) wrapped with a veneer plastic that was cheaper and was supposed to look like wood. “All of this dark brown paneling and cabinetry created a space that felt more cramped than it was,” adds Hofmann. “Worse yet, the interior smelled like a glue factory.” Curved interior walls is another design and construction challenge. “Early designers would often use ?” wood luan paneling, but it was often overdone,” he adds. A better
airstream repair airstream trailers #airstreams #airstreaming. Well, it's finally hot enough to get airstream UPDATE. Paul replaced the back deck that was cut in error on the tail, and left us scratching our heads. NOTE – If your tail deck is rotted out, and you have to create a new plywood deck for the back CUT IT TOO LARGE! If it doesn't fit, cut it down. What we had I went down a road that lead to the wrong item – snap together plastic coin flooring. It certainly is white, but too thick
airstream trailers are built from the bottom up. The floor is made of durable wood 5/8 of an inch thick, anchoring the entire trailer and providing a low center of balance for smooth towing. The perimeter of the floor is then covered in an anti-wicking coating for further protection. We also install a protective layer of flex foil insulation between the wooden flooring and the steel chassis. When all is said and done, this creates not only a very long-lasting base for attaching the lightweight shell,
12 May 2017 When it came time to decide on flooring for our airstream, we had no idea what to do. I read good arguments for every type. Hardwood aged nicely but was heavy, laminate was durable but not waterproof, bamboo was lightweight but susceptible to water damage, vinyl was ideal but pretty toxic. And we learned first-hand how toxic vinyl flooring can be. We first settled on a 2mm vinyl flooring from Lumber Liquidators. It was a beautiful distressed plank wood style.
13 Apr 2017 I first built the center five 1×4 cross beams and then fastened the rear board to the back wall with the nail gun and then screws to reinforce. I built the bed up high enough to be able to literally crawl underneath to stow things away. We wanted to make sure it was tall enough for things like our air compressor and tool box since this is really the only space where large objects can be stored. The center board is three boards thick for the two pieces of plywood to lay onto.
23 Jan 2017 We decided to do a complete remodel of our airstream's bathroom. I first was determined to just spruce up what was already there with marine paint. But after we did the kitchen remodel and found all of the nastiness from an old sink leak we decided gutting the bathroom was imperative. We took out everything. Surprisingly, it was a very quick demo. Start to finish I'd say it took 4 hours. This is what was underneath. The subfloor ended up being sturdy in most places,
Our plan was to make new ones out of wood. The rear one we would make out of some 1/8 plywood that was given to us, and paint it the same color as the rest of the interior. The front one would be birch plywood. You can see how we did it in the pictures. We made some ribs to attach the panels to, backed them with styro-foam block spacers, made our patterns out of cardboard, cut the panels, riveted them up, then cut trim strips and riveted them to it. We used washers with the rivets

24 Jun 2016 How to Build an airstream. The airstream trailer was constructed thus: A bare plywood floor was secured to the aluminum chassis.

20 Apr 2013 Video of an airstream trailer rehab project. This one is destined to spend full time at a self sufficient vacation retreat location but needs to get there intact, so it is getting a lot of steel reinforcement welded into the floor supports in order to compensate for two things: one is the deterioration of the existing steel framework, and two is the fact that the owner will be using thinner flooring material than what the original airstream factory had used. They had used 3/4" plywood,
