What are we doing with the Airstream parts we remove? Putting them in a landfill? Trying not to. Our goal during this remodel has been to recycle parts and get them into the hands of other RVers who want them and can use them. So here is the list of what has been removed and where it went.

Dinette and table: Sold to a local RVer
