Cool 1985 Airstream

Hi, one of our two projects is an 1985 Airstream RV with the original interior in good shape and the original engine working, and then hubby added a second project RV that is newer and larger and will allow me to redo the interior without guilt to better fit our quirks.

My Airstream needs new window treatments. Those seem to be the only interior elements that did not survive the many years this thing sat parked on the original owners property.

Hubby says when he gets the Rexhall working, then he'll finish the maintenance work on the Airstream to get it road worthy and then I have to decide which one to keep.

Dream machine=Airstream; Better Fits our Needs=Rexhall
Drives nicest=Airstream; more towing power=Rexhall

ah decisions, decisions!

Who on here does restoration type stuff? This thing is so close to its original from the factory state, I want to be sure to get the window treatments similar to preserve its vintage qualities.

HI - James P. Ambruso makes the best drapes around for Airstreams and while they are expensive they will last and last. I have a set and they have worn well and wash nicely. They come set up with the needed specialized hardware.
You can find them here Drapes For Airstream and Argosy Trailers

If you need replacement roller shades or blinds, these are still available from airstream and you can order them from any dealer.

Good online sources for airstream parts include Inland RV, Out of Doors Mart and Vintage Trailer supply. For specific help on airstream related projects check out www.airforums.com
