1955 Airstream Flying Cloud - "Arthur"
One Week Later - 9/14/2008

Below are the pictures from 9/14/08, one week after bringing the trailer home. I have cleaned out much of the junk and I'm making progress on cleaning. The mattresses and boxsprings were disgusting. The boxsprings had been homes to mice for several years. Thankfully, a previous owner had installed plywood over the original wood frames, so the mouse poop and pee was contained to the plywood (which is now at the dump with the beds).

These original box springs were amazingly well built. I hated to get rid of them, but mice had been living in them. Yuck!
