Full walkthrough video:

Thoughtfully built for the long-term with maintenance considered… utilizing sensible construction practices and accessible—readily available off-the-shelf parts.

Our safety first approach starts at the frame, carefully refurbished with the next 63 years in mind. With new adjustable torsion axles, hubs and brakes, restored original wheels, new tires including a new spare, new safety chains, and fully equipped with LP gas, Carbon Monoxide, and smoke detectors along with strategically placed fire extinguishers, we truly put owner’s safety at the forefront, even including a new sway bar kit to ensure a smooth ride as it’s towed away.

Our “Better than OEM” approach means “Sonora” is equipped with features such as closed-cell spray foam insulation with an industry leading R-Value of 7 per inch (approximately 10-14 throughout this airstream). Making for a quiet, comfortable stay in any environment, with the added benefits of structural reinforcement, water-proofing, and leaving no place for icky to hang out. Before the spray foam was applied, all of the seams and rivets were liberally sealed from the inside. New tempered glass windows throughout for maximum strength down the road and a flawless viewing experience wherever you stay, complimented with insulating blinds. Even our subfloor insulation is superior, with R-10 below achieved with a 2 inch Foamular NGX system.

Speaking of subfloor, ours is carefully protected with multiple coats of polyurethane with emphasis on the edges for long-term water proofing and durability, secured firmly to the frame with galvanized carriage bolts. For flooring we chose Forbo Marmoleum sheet, for a seamless, luxurious & natural feel with easy maintenance.

Let’s talk electrical with all new wiring from the tow plug to the outlets. We designed this airstream around a “smart and easy” mindset. It starts with a 200ah smart lithium battery by Renogy paired with a 3000w Sungoldpower pure sine wave intelligent inverter charger to take care of your needs off grid. Want more? Easily add additional battery storage with a convenient amount of space in the storage compartment. But you shouldn’t need it under most circumstances thanks to your supplied 200 watts of Renogy solar which are easily added too with available receptacles, and a Renogy solar charge controller and battery monitor nicely work alongside the Sungoldpower monitor. Like monitoring? Pair with your Airstream via the Renogy app on your phone via Bluetooth for even more! Plug into shore power or a generator and the system instantly switches over, no need for user input… Just plug and play baby!

Sonora features multiple layers of protection from surges or faulty power sources starting at the Sungoldpower built in surge protection following an inline fuse. This power goes to the AC breaker & fuse panel before entering the trailer.

LED lighting used throughout the interior and exterior, with new tail lights, running lights, and porch light installed. A full Alpine sound system tastefully sets the mood, with Bluetooth for your convenience. GFCI outlets protect the bathroom & kitchen outlets, and there are two 12v DC outlets for your added convenience.

A 15k BTU Dometic Duo-Therm Penguin II brings you powerful climate control, with the heat-pump option giving you freedom to choose between heat by electricity or LP gas from your quiet, efficient 25k btu Suburban furnace. Fully operable windows with a screen door and open-able Maxim skylight allow the breeze, and the remote controlled MaxxAir Deluxe fan gives ventilation a plethora of options.

Only the best of the best for Sonora, with a Dometic CU-434 stainless steel gas range/oven, and a Vitrifrigo stainless steel high efficiency fridge/freezer. These along with the gorgeous solid surface counter top, quartz sink, luxurious genuine unlacquered brass faucet, and stunning Casual Elements table make the whole business of cooking & dining a delight. Oh let’s not forget to mention the dreamy old-world inspired solid white oak cabinetry with premium Baltic birch interior & boxes for maximum durability.

Water is supplied by connecting to shore or taken off grid by filling the 33 gallon insulated freshwater tank, from where its distributed with a Shurflo pump fitted with a Shurflo silencing kit & Shurflo accumulator, all housed within an easily accessible acoustically insulated compartment inside the couch. Pex plumbing all throughout. This Airstream is equipped with the Fogatti Instashower 8+ tankless water heater for instant hot water. This also saves space and maintenance. A luxurious brass shower system & quaint bathroom faucet and gorgeous stone sink, along with a Dometic RV toilet work to conserve water. The water system controls, including bypass valves, tank level monitor, tank heater and water pump switches are all conveniently located in a single kitchen cabinet.

This Airstream was built with a 4 inch frame depth and ribs spaced 24 inches apart, not much room for waste water tanks! So we used the Airstream approach of an above floor black tank + low profile toilet combo, giving 10 gallons of black water storage. Then we installed a low profile Grey water tank under the belly pan, above the axle, giving us 35 gallons of gray water storage. This exterior tank is insulated and features a tank heater.

The three gray water drains each utilize waterless HepVo valves in lieu of P-traps for even more ease of maintenance.

Our shower is constructed with fiber reinforced polymer panels & an acrylic molded shower pan for total waterproofing. Trimmed out with a stunning travertine bench & a luxurious teak shower mat, is this a yacht or an RV? The bathroom is fully waterproofed and features a pleated bathroom door that collapses completely into the wall saving space and weight.

Back at the front of Sonora, we continue with the seamless yacht like design with our large wrap around couch. Made with all American materials, including Premium foam cushions and the fluffiest of pillows, our couch is upholstered in a durable yet luxurious velvet chenille. An integrated white oak slide out and provided cushion converts the couch into a comfortable guest bed, and there’s no wasted space with every inch inside being storage including a large drawer and three cubbies.

This storage focus continues Back to the rear of Sonora in the master bedroom. Our premium Brooklyn Bedding mattress with gorgeous linen bedding easily lifts to reveal lots of storage below. We also have overhead cubbies, one housing the Renogy Battery monitor, Renogy Adventurer Solar Charge Controller & Renogy bluetooth module, along with the SunGoldPower Inverter Charger Display.

Outside we have sealed every seam and rivet, installed a new belly pan, new copper gas lines, gas tanks, and regulator. We also have new jacks at the rear and a new folding step. The door knob has been fully refurbished with new keys made, and the rear hatch received a new latch and keys as well. Sonora comes with all of the RV’ing basics; from 30amp power cord to wheel chocks to RV toilet paper, freshwater hose to sewer hose, you’re all set to camp on the way home!

63 years of vintage value paired with all your modern creature comforts!
