The Search for Silver

I needed to paint the tongue and bumper. I foolishly tried all kinds of silver-like colors to find a match. There even is paint available from airstream that is $38 a can but I didn’t use that because of the excessive cost. In the end I read somewhere that the vintage airstream color was simply “silver.” I got regular silver metallic paint from my local hardware store and it looks great!  



Vintage Heretic

  As part of the improvements to the trailer, I installed a cork floor. I never really liked it. While exploring options on, I read about someone who installed carpet over the current floor. If it got dirty, they just took it out and cleaned it. The Bambi is so small (the interior floor is only 9′ long) that it was easy. I think it came out great! 

Shiny Tanks 


I was getting low on propane and I found out my tanks had the old connection on them (of course everything is old on the trailer). With the suggestion of Rachel Harp from Harps RV in Lincoln, CA , I got small tanks and shined them. I’m good for 12 years!
