As you all know, we are starting on a restoration of our 68 Airstream Overlander.  Here are some photos of the inside as it was when we brought the trailer home.  It is almost all original.  The curtains had been replaced, and a laminate floor has been installed.  The counters in the kitchen have been painted, and the table area has had some cabinetry removed.
front end - sofa pulls out into a bed

one side of the kitchen, looking towards the back

view down the middle towards the back where the bathroom is. 

other side of the kitchen, looking towards the back

fridge and stove- both original

command central

kitchen again, the stainless panel on the counter beyond the sink is a 3-burner cooktop


bathroom again.  The original vinyl folding screen for the shower is missing.

center sleeping area, this sofa pulls out into a bed as well

storage in center, closet on right hand side

inside a few of the cupboards are slide out drawers with the original storage bins
Here are some detail shots of some of the things I love... 
the cooktop.. looks to be in great shape!

original lights

there are two vent fans 

reading lights

for the missing antenna
We are so grateful that it has not been painted over the years.  A few of the cabinets have been painted inside, and I will give them a fresh coat.  The cabinets have a thick veneer on them which looks to be Mahogany (?).  Looking at these photos has reminded me how good it looked when we picked it up, although I have to say it wasn't this nice in person.  Up close everything was showing a lot of grime and wear.  Now that all the before pictures are up I can begin to show you what we've been up to!
