Ever wanted to peek inside our 25-foot Airstream travel trailer? Now’s your chance!

Recently we stopped to visit with the folks at Dixie RV Superstores in Hammond, Louisiana where we produced this video walkthrough of our Airstream – which we sometimes call “Liv.” We’ve taken her to 49 states and she’s still going strong.

On the outside, Liv looks pretty good. You can’t take an Airstream to 49 states without suffering a little wear and tear. She’s sporting a few dings and dents on her exterior. But we like to think of those minor flaws as “character marks.”

Up front, her gravel guards are pocked and nicked from the impact of a zillion tiny pebbles. But isn’t that what gravel guards are for?

Liv’s rear storage compartment is rusted out, and was further damaged due to a tire blowout. Every time I look at it, I hear the soft music of Elvis crooning, “In the Ghetto.” The same hold true for the water access compartment on the opposite side of the trailer – it has rusted due to the factory using metal that’s vulnerable to oxidation (instead of stainless steel or the like). We will eventually repair those areas.
