Beautifully executed finishes and varied textures turn a tired 1960s Airstream into a vibrant home.
When Bonnie Christine and her husband, David, decided to take their two young kids on a long cross-country road trip, they began hunting for a pre-owned Airstream they could renovate and make their own.
Having spent nearly a decade casually leafing through the classifieds for a trailer, the couple developed a keen eye that quickly led them to the perfect purchase—a 1962 Airstream Overlander for $18,000.
“We weren’t quite up for a full renovation,” explains Bonnie of why she and David were drawn to the 150-square-foot trailer. “The previous owner had down a complete shell-off restoration, so we knew it had great bones. She was the perfect blank slate!”
She adds, “We scooped her up, and while looking through the original paperwork, found that a ‘Miss Marjorie’ was the original owner and had bought her in 1962. So in honor of her beginnings, we decided to name her Marjorie.”
