Another dream of Jose and me has come true this weekend! We are proud new owners of an Airstream! I know that if a lot of projects are not high enough, we can put vintage campers in the mix. But there is a funny story about this camper and our farmhouse that I will share. But first, look how cute she is!
This exact airflow was a dream one had to possess, and he quickly pursued our dreams. Years ago I talk about the time in North Carolina. My great-aunt and uncle had mentioned that they are considering getting rid of this airflow. We told them that if they ever decided to sell Airstream, we would have an opportunity to buy.
Over the years, we seemed to be the only family members interested in the tin can, so it was almost unspoken we would buy the camper. Years and years passed, and they were still planning trips with the camper and were not ready to part with the camper. Jose and I moved to Michigan and it quickly got busy repairing the house and opening our shop, The Found Cottage.
We were just buying the farm when my great-aunt and uncle were looking for the camper. Jose and I both looked so torn … This dream camper we could touch and remember for life, but we jumped headfirst into our farmhouse and did not know how that would affect our budget. With tight throats we told them we would have to pass on the RV. And from that moment on we have always regretted sharing the Airstream. My great-aunt and uncle passed on the Airstream to one of their children and we were glad that he stayed in the family, but so sad that we could not take our family on an adventure.
During the last year we were looking for an Airstream. It was a huge dream of Jose to work on one, and I always wanted to design a winter that was not nice to it.
At the beginning of this year … the universe has come to an equal and we had dinner with my parents and my great-aunt and uncle. And the words that took my breath away turned to ask if we happened to be still interested in their old airflow. Um … YES! They explained that their son brought it home and had time to use it and just sit around to be wasted. We told them we would be overjoyed if we took it from them …
And here she is in all her glory of 1971. This is a 1971 Airstream Trade Wind Double. At the moment, it is almost all original, with the exception of the floors and some modifications made over the years by my great-aunt and uncle.
The exterior is in a really good condition that we could not find in our search over the years. The interior is currently functional and everything is still going, but we definitely want to put our mark on this beauty.
I hope you are just as excited as we are about this camper and his trip … We will need help with the naming, so please leave a comment here on my Instagram. Thank you for stopping by today and every other day. Xx Liz Marie
