Airstream Repairs Part 1 – Closet Fix

Fred & Emily


Evening, Peeps!

Yes, the blog still lives. But sadly, boring things like work keep getting in the way so we haven’t been producing as much content as we’d like.

Still, we found some time to address a fairly serious issue in the Airstream which is separating closet panels. While I would normally jump all over Airstream for their bad quality on this front, I have to say I think I understand what they were after.

The closet in its original form has sort of a “negative edge” appearance, which has almost no visible screws and a nice clean white appearance with few seams. When new, this approach is quite stunning and makes the closet look very spacious.¬†¬†Until the screws back out, the unglued pegs fail and panels start to bow.

Fred and I talked about various solutions to the imploding closet, like re-threading the failed wingy/doodads that made the negative edge possible in the first place, or running a white piece of angle along the closet edge. In the end you will see see our video below we settled on a very straight forward set of brackets to keep things in place.

Hope you enjoy this Airstream DIY and peace out!
