An innovator for the recreational and vacation vehicles sector, Airstream was founded by Wally Byam in 1932. A company that quickly blossomed on the success of aerodynamic aluminum travel trailers, Airstream continues to use the same iconic styling and construction. Along with Vacationing families and other adventurers, commercial as well as government agencies such as NASA have continued to popularize the Airstream product line. According to research conducted during Airstream's 75th anniversary in 2006, between 60 to 70 percent of the company's trailers are still operating.

The bathroom is outdated and in need of repair/remodeling so the demolition process has begun.

In the first picture, we took the door off to be able to reach the fresh water vent pipe. The vent pipe was dry rotted so they had to replace that part. In the second picture, all new pipes underneath the kitchen counter. In the last picture, we put in a brand refrigerator for this trailer.
