Old Airstream models can quickly fall behind the times, and as the owner of one, it’s up to you to bring it back into the modern age. A few small revisions can give your trailer a welcoming new look and we have a few suggestions that you should keep in mind. From painting and redoing the flooring to adding a new table and utilizing magnets for organization purposes, there are several different ways you can improve your Airstream.
Paint the Walls
If your Airstream’s looking a little bland and is in need of a makeover, try painting the walls to give it a fresh look. Due to the size of the interior, we recommend using pastel colors to lighten up the trailer, creating a modern appearance. Just make sure you do a little research prior to completing the paint job and find out what course of action you should take to prep for the project.
Add Vinyl Flooring
The floors in a new trailer are not always the most appealing, but they can easily be altered with a little elbow grease. One of the most popular options when redoing Airstream floors is vinyl flooring, which instantly delivers a homey feel. These days, there is a wide range of vinyl flooring options to choose from, including many affordable selections. It’s also fairly simple to install vinyl flooring, making it an excellent choice for your Airstream.
Install a Drop-Leaf Table
In order to maximize space in your Airstream, install a drop-leaf table that can be folded downward. This will make your trailer roomier and give you additional space to move around freely without the risk of bumping into a standard table. It’s also great for when you have extra guests in your trailer and find yourself in need of standing or sitting room.
Redo Your Countertops
Do you own an older model Airstream with dull countertops that look like they just came out of the 70s? If so, take the time to revamp them. Popular selections for redoing Airstream countertops include stainless steel panels, concrete, vinyl and wooden butcher blocks. All stylish and lightweight, each of these options are a great way to spruce up the look of your Airstream kitchen area.
Use Magnets to Organize Kitchen Utensils
If you don’t have enough room in your Airstream to store all of your kitchen utensils, use magnets to hang them. You can purchase magnetic strips that can easily be applied to the walls of your cabin, allowing you to hang all metal items and increase storage space.
