The shell is separated from the frame!
Although our vintage airstream is still being deconstructed, this seems like such huge progress!!
Above is the top of the floor with the parquet wood flooring that covered all the floor rot. Below the photo is of the bottom of the subfloor - with all the rotted edges.
The old axle with leaf springs is coming off - to be replaced with a torsion axle for a smoother kinder ride for our 1955 Airstream Flying Cloud.
The great news is that the tire fits into the "A" portion of the frame. The new fresh water tanks will not fit into the angled main frame rails. The change will give us the 2 tanks at 17 gallons each - for a total of 34 gallons of fresh water up front and capacity for 34 gallons of gray water. These are the new Vintage Trailer Supply tanks - item # VTS-851.
