Who we are
And what we love about what we do
1968 Airstream Sovereign – 30 ft
I’ve always had a passion for camping and for the world of classic campers. Of course when I was a teenager they weren’t classic, but even then I knew that the 30 foot Airstream Sovereign my parents owned was something special. My family would forge out on adventures with our shiny Airstream behind us. We took trips into Canada where we enjoyed the beauty of Lake Louise and Banff National Park, into California and even Mexico. As kids we of course enjoyed Disneyland, but one of our favorite destinations in the winter was actually camping in Death Valley, California.
As a young man I ventured into a cabinet business with a friend, specializing in custom cabinetry for residential homes. Because we installed appliances for every customer, I learned every aspect of the business, from construction, electrical and plumbing through heating and air conditioning. I was also starting my own woodworking business at the time, enjoying the process of designing and building the custom cabinets in my own shop.
Entering Death Valley from the west
Somewhere along the way I fell in love, and I discovered my new bride was also very interested in camping. One our our first adventures was traveling down through California, visiting many places, including my childhood favorite, Death Valley. I would tell my wife stories of the camping trips in the old Airstream, how wonderful it felt to be traveling in such a classic RV. In the fall of 2013 she told me she wanted to buy one, and we began the search. Soon she found a 1966 Airstream Tradewind. At only 24 feet long, it was a bit smaller than the trailer I experienced as a youth, but we knew it would be perfect for us.
I have a particular passion for helping restore these magnificent RVs. It is more than just work for me, but a chance to travel back to the times as a child when I discovered the beauty and peace of camping. I hope that I can help you relive your youth, or make some new memories in your own trailer. We enjoy traveling to various rallys and shows, meeting fellow enthusiasts, and helping others bring their own classic RV back to life.
