Airstream Renovation Blog

We picked up this gem in Ithaca, NY and brought it home to our campground in Niagara Falls, Canada. Once it is warmer, we plan to fix it up and use it for camping and as an AirBNB at the campground here. It is a 1989 29-foot Airstream Excella.

Here are some of the BEFORE photos of the inside. It has the original twin beds! It was owned by an older couple who took the trailer to Myrtle Beach every year. We plan to lighten it up after we check that all the systems are working, there is no rot and there are no leaks. I have been reading up on how to sew new curtains, how to polish and combing through Airstream forums for ideas.

[Addendum(July 2018): OOPS, spoke too soon!  Upon further investigation, there are numerous leaks. What do I know?!]
