Just A SELECTION OF SOME OF OUR WORK

1966 Ultravan

This unique RV was brought to us to repair and remarket. We fixed a fuel leak, repaired the cooling fans and running lights. We recreated the Closet, installed period correct wall sconces, and repaired the plumbing. 

This Ultravan was the first unit to roll off the production line in the Kansas factory. It is one of only a few hundred to still exist.

It was an honor to work on it and be able to find it a new home.

2015 Airstream

This Airstream belongs to an Oregon Airstream Club member. It came to us with a rear queen bed that the client wanted converted to two twins.

We removed the old bed and constructed two new beds and a night stand out of solid oak. We relocated the heat vent ducts, added factory correct night lights, and USB ports on the night stand.. 

 

1963 Shasta

This trailer came to us in fairly decent shape but as with all stick built trailers there was rot in the walls and water staining from leaks.

We did a complete frame up restoration including all new wood framing and exterior skins. We salvaged and reused all of the interior cabinets we could. We reused all of the original hardware. The counter tops and table were redone using vintage formica . The trailer's exterior was polished and painted a custom color.

 

 

1954 aIRSTREAM

This trailer came to us a gutted shell. The client had a tight budget and timeline. We did a frame up restoration to include all new insulation and wiring. We constructed a custom front bench that confirms into a queen bed. We designed a pull out gaucho rear sleeper that also serves as a reading nook. There is a tile lined wet bath accessed via a barn door. Solid wood floors play nicely against the darker butcher block counter tops.

 

 

 

1951 Tear Drop

This trailer was purchased from the original owner in rather poor condition. Its plywood structure was nearly collapsing in on itself. 

We did a frame up build replacing the wood with aluminum channel and exterior skin. The interior was redone in solid maple wood with added storage compartments. The rear kitchen houses a new Coleman stove and yeti cooler.

 

 

 

1954 Airstream

This trailer goes down in history as one of my craziest builds. From the as found pictures, sunk in the mud, to the finished shots plastered with decals on site in Seattle was accomplished in 17 days!

This included frame repair, new axle, new sub floor, new insulation, new wiring, and new interior elements. The trailer functioned as a mobile office space for a while then as a mobile solon for Aveda Hair products, used in a promotional photo shoot on the Oregon coast.

It was later sold to a dealer in Washington.

 

 

 

 

1958 Airstream

This 1958 Traveler came to me as an empty shell with quite a few bullet holes in it. I was excited to take on this project.  I had planned from the beginning to create the interior out of Cherry wood. I love the rich tones that arise as the wood ages. The interior was design to follow closely to the original layout. 

I added some special elements like the wine rack next to the fridge and the magazine tray above.  In the end this trailer came out looking just as I imagined.

It is now with its new owner in Sydney Australia. 

 

 

 

 

 

1963 Airstream

This Ambassador model came to us in pretty sad shape but we were able to bring her back to life.

We built this to the client's specifications and with their chosen design. The espresso stain on the solid oak cabinetry although dark was the perfect choice for this wood.

I am so elated that the client was later able to sell this trailer for a profit.
