A Traveling Dream with Dura Supreme
Designer Susie Johnson of Dragonfly Kitchens, Inc. in New Mexico had always dreamed of owning a vintage Airsteam trailer. After searching for over a year and a half, she finally found a classic 1965 Safari Airstream in Santa Fe, NM not far from her home. Susie immediately got on the phone and purchased it without even seeing it first-hand.
When she arrived to see her new purchase, it was everything she had dreamed of. It was adorable! However, the interior was not as adorable as the exterior.
Susie, being a cabinetry designer, instantly started dreaming up plans for her vintage getaway. “I wanted to restore it to the level of a modern trailer instead of restoring it to 1965. I stuck to the original floor plan but gave it all an upgrade. ”Dura Supreme’s Allspice stain was a perfect choice because it beautifully matched the original factory-issued mahogany finish.
The goal was to have it done in time for the Annual Vintage Trailer Rally at the Starlight Classic Campground in Colorado, a favorite pastime. Somehow, she managed to squeeze time in between her busy work life and busy home life to complete the remodel just in time for the rally.
Susie packed up her two pups, Mesa and Zac and hit the highway with her fabulous getaway. “I was so busy with life, I didn’t get a chance to take a look at what I had accomplished until I took it out on the first trip,” she explained.
“As I was sitting at the campground, lounging in my newly remodeled getaway, all I could think was ‘could life get any better than this?’ It was just beautiful! It exceeded all I’d ever imagined.”
