1996 Excella 28' Renovated

1996 Airstream Excella 28 footer. The interior has been completely renovated to include a few things that make camping or full time living easier. I'm in the military so I've lived in this trailer for about 3 months out of the past year. I just recently got the exterior polished professionally and it turned out great. The renovation was done by a licensed electrician/plumber and was not done by myself.

Notable upgrades:
-Dinette that folds down into a couch/sleeping area
-Custom dinette cushions made of durable outdoor fabric
-TV mount where I currently have my iMac
-More counter space between cooktop and oven, as well
as more counter space next to pantry
-Increased pantry area
-Larger sink with a filtered water spout
-Increased shower size (40x42), as well as moved it into
its own bathroom with sliding door.
-new porcelain toilet
-Increased storage space in bedroom/under the bed
-New flooring
-New countertops
-Overhead Lighting and dimmer switches
-I replaced the orignal sewer connection with a Lipperts
Waste master connection (more convenient than the old
twist connection)
-Replaced electric jack with manual crank

New appliances:
-AC unit
-Fantastic fans (two)
-Upgraded electrical to 50 amp power
-water tank control panel

Here are the things that are wrong:
When I took the trailer out of storage after being gone for 5 months, I left water in the water heater which gave off a bad smell. I completely flushed out the water heater to get rid of the smell which worked. I didn't really feel like messing with it so I bypassed the water heater and did not install a new anode rod. So i've been taking "cold" showers (really lukewarm with San Diego weather)

Few dings and scratched on the interior that I plan on repainting here in the next week or two. (original paint will be included for touch ups)

Few wear and tear stress spots from prolonged travel on the interior which can easily be amended

Not necessarily wrong, but when renovating, the builder covered up two of the left sided windows with the plywood used for the walls. So basically the two small windows below the two big windows on the left side are covered behind the wall.

I really enjoyed having this trailer even though I only lived in it a short amount of time. Everything works as it should.

Please note, most of the pictures provided are from when the renovations were completed. I have added a few things (curtains, things of that nature).

If you would like to see any more pictures or want to know anything else please feel free to contact me.
