Runaround Sue Airstream

In the winter of 2009, New Prairie took on a challenging new project: renovating a 1961 Airstream Safari. Our goal was to create a beautiful, cozy, and practical space with as many environmentally-friendly features as possible.

    Beautifully executed! I appreciate the modern twists. My wife and I have a 1968 Airstream of which we are loving stewards. We hope to have a similar mirror shine on ours soon. You can see her here:
