Meet your host, Douglas

Member since 2020

After 25 years of camping in pop-up units across the US and into Canada we took on a vintage Airstream restoration at start of 2020. It ended up being our Covid project. The restoration has led to many new friends and an entire new community that can only be found among silver side owners. You'll get a taste of this as you travel in an Airstream. Everyone want to have a look inside and out. We named our Airstream in honor of our mothers, hence the name "Ellie Mae". Work is ongoing as we prepare to polish her exterior to a mirror finish and redo the vintage decals, but inside we are delighted with the quality that is still so evident in our almost 40 year old girl.

Ellie Mae is a vintage Airstream that has been lovingly restored with a modern queen size bedroom, exposed aluminum interior walls, a new living room couch, and an entertainment wall. You can see her restoration on our blog
There is new plumbing, interior LED lighting, laminate wood floors, and tile flooring in the kitchen and bathroom. The new flooring makes it easy to keep clean on the road. New blackout curtains and blinds decorate refurbished oak valances.
Fully appointed kitchen with a four burner stove, oven, double sink with residential faucet and apartment sized refrigerator with full freezer (cools great on LP or on electric.) Additionally, there is a microwave and coffee station next to the refrigerator in the galley.
In the living room fold up tables and ottomans allow dinning for up to six. When not set up there is ample space for family and friends to gather. A small desk allows for a work station next to the TV. The TV is on a swing arm mount with Roku. There is a vintage stereo with new speakers in the living room and bedroom.
The bathroom has a full size shower, sink vanity, ventilation and a head. Hot water is from an onboard 6-gallon LP water heater. Across from the bathroom there is a cedar lined double closet.
New tires, wheels, shocks, brakes, cameras and LED running lights make for safe travel down the road. New battery and converter make it easy to boondock overnight or eat meals on the road. In addition to the main awning, there are vintage awnings over many of the windows adding to the exterior charm. New water, sewer and electric hook ups make for easy set up. The camper weighs in at 5,500 lbs. (6,500+ with full tanks). At 31 feet if you do not have experience towing trailers, this is not the unit for you.
If you are intimidated or don't have a vehicle capable of pulling this trailer, we will pull it for you to any of 24+ campgrounds within a 40 mile radius of Winston-Salem and set it up for you.
