Makita 7" Electric Polisher
For steps 1-2, we used an side grinder my dad had laying around. It did the job but was on the smaller side and took much longer to polish. A lot of people recommend this guy.
Ryobi 6" Random Orbit Polisher
Don't underestimate this little $20 polisher! We bought this on a whim before shelling out $450 for the Cyclo (which everyone recommends). This little thing kicked butt! We wrapped it in a t-shirt to minimize swirls and we were happy with the job it did!
Jasco Odorless Mineral Spirits
At the end of the polishing, you'll need lots of t-shirts and mineral spirits to wipe off the excess polish.
Jasco Easy Liquid Sander Deglosser
I'm eternally grateful for the guy at Lowe's who introduced me to this product. This saved a ton of time. A lot of you may know that over time, the skin on vintage Airstreams turns sort of sticky and slimy. This stuff cut through all of that and prepped the walls for paint.
Valspar Signature Paint in Satin
I painted the entire skin and tambour doors with Valspar Signature in Satin and the color Snow Bank. It took two coats and I rolled most of it on with a 4" wide roller. I used a small brush around the trim.

Valspar Project Perfect Spray Paint
I sprayed the plastic end caps, window frames, pressboard and all metal trims with Valspar enamel satin spray paint in White. I matched it to my latex wall paint and it blends perfectly.
Lippert RV Bath Tub 24" x 36"
This isn't the most glamorous tub out there but it was a perfect fit in the old tub footprint of our 1975 Airstream Overlander.
Decorative Backsplash Panel
We used this backsplash panel on the front facing side of the tub. One $20 sheet cut in two covered the whole front.
1/4" & 3/4" White Starboard
Starboard is amazing stuff. It is a super strong and waterproof. We used 1/4" around the vertical sides of the tub area and 3/4" for the counter next to the tub.
Ikea Ekbacken Dark Oak Countertop
We used this countertop in the bathroom and throughout the Airstream. It's a great color and has held up wonderfully with regular use.
A $6 Pile of Pallet Wood
We covered the front facing sides of the bathroom in pallet wood from a local pallet manufacturer. We bought this pile before it became a pallet. Beware of used pallets - they can contain all sorts of nasty chemicals!
Mintcraft Recessed Toilet Paper Holder
Every inch of space counts in an Airstream. We used this nifty recessed toilet paper holder. It looks great and stays out of the way!
Thetford 31667 Aqua-Magic V Toilet
We decided a regular black water tank RV toilet was right for us. We've been very happy with this one. It's super easy to deal with. No smells, no problems, no complaints!
BOSCH T 4-Gallon Electric Water Heater
We went all-electric on Mavis. We've been happy with this 4 gallon water heater. It's enough for a solid 15 minute hot shower!
KES L310B-2 Modern Bathroom Faucet
We scored our vessel sink at a scratch and dent shop for $10! We got this short faucet which fits perfectly in the space. It's great quality too!
6' Flexible Shower Hose
We left the shower hose in the original location but updated all of the fixtures. The hose that came with our new shower head was too short and too rigid. This shower hose is super flexible and high quality.
Oxygenics 5-Spray Showerhead
This shower head is awesome. It looks good, has different settings and has great water pressure.
Gaoyu Adjustable 3M Shower Head Mount
We moved our showerhead from the curved wall of the bathroom to the back wall to have more headroom. We have this mount on the tileboard back wall and it's incredibly sturdy and hasn't budged.
Everpure Single Head Filter Mount
We replaced our original filter mount with this guy. It allows for use of a variety of modern filters.
Pentair Everpure Quick Change Cartridge
This filter lasts a whole season with regular use. Our water tastes like bottled!
Thetford to Valterra Universal Adapter
This was needed to convert the vintage Airstream sewer connection to a modern sewer hose.
Thetford Titan Sewer 15' Hose Kit
This is the 15' expandable sewer hose required to hook up to sewer.
Camco Holding Tank Rinser
This is a black water tank high pressure sprayer with an on/off switch to use when emptying.
Walex Bio-Pak Natural Holding Tank Deodorizer
One of these puppies gets dropped in the toilet each time after you empty the black water tank.
