Here are a series of after renovations pictures of the 1974 Overlander Airstream (note if you hit the fs in the bottom right corner of the gallery the images are a lot clearer)
Pictures taken on our journey, some au naturel some photoshopped!
Essentially what we did was to move the bed from the front of the airstream to the back. We then had a U-shaped bench/table made, with large drawers for storage.
Even the corner round area is used, accessed by the top of the bench. You are able to put the table down so it forms a large sleeping platform for guests. We keep a blow up air mattress for such happy occasions. Here are some detailed pictures of that front dining/sleeping/working area.
The way the carpenter figured out the bed area was especially clever. It makes great use of covering up the wheel well. (you can access that area via a trap outside and it makes for great storage).
During the day it’s folded into the size of a single bed, or day bed, then at night you slide out the bottom half, unfold the memory foam mattress and voila a double/queen sized bed.
There is a whole wall of shelving on the other side of the bed for clothes, which hides the wheel well, and provides tonnes of storage… and a nice flat surface for keeping our bits and pieces, and in the evening we set up our laptop/netflicks and the screen for movies!
There is a large pantry by the fridge for food and kitchen storage.
We had all of this built in place by the most amazing carpenter in PEI (Dean Arsenault). If you are ever in that area, email me and i’ll send you his contact info.
We’ve been mentioned in a few articles, here are some:
