'70s style meets modern convenience in this remodeled Airstream Overlander

Wind River Tiny Homes may specialize in small-house builds, but the company couldn't resist the challenge of restoring this 27-foot 1973 Airstream Overlander. Modern accents meet details that nod to the Airstream's era — such as burnt orange banquettes.
The exterior wears classic Airstream aluminum siding, whereas the inside sports clean white skins and custom woodwork accents. Nearly every item was custom built for this particular project, so Wind River can quote Airstream remodels for every client.

Inside, cork flooring meets new white walls. Overhead, aluminum skins meet a custom hardwood accent ceiling. Recessed puck lighting throughout illuminates the space.
A ceramic bust hangs from the chevron accent wall in the front seating area. Zig-zag valences have a Missoni-inspired look throughout. Doubling as a cozy sleeping space, a roomy burnt orange storage banquette boasts '70s-style throw pillows. A fold-down desk and white egg chair create a simple workspace. Here, white shiplap siding reaches from the walls to the ceiling until meeting the wooden accent strip.
The kitchen is equipped with a small basin sink, high-neck faucet, small oven and stovetop. Butcher block counters top clean white cabinetry finished with minimal brushed nickel hardware. A seafoam green backsplash contrasts colorful curtains.
Next to the kitchen, a long storage banquette sits across from built-in cabinetry and dining space. Corrugated metal siding creates a luminescent shell, reflected in natural light from expansive windows on both sides.
A horse-trough tub and rain head create a simple shower space with built-in curtain rod. Storage cubbies nestle next to an aluminum pocket door. Built-in hooks offer a convenient place to hang a towel.

Vertical wood paneling surrounds the toilet and vanity area, which are next to the shower behind a custom chevron pocket door. A white shiplap vanity holds a seafoam green glass tiles and a bowl vessel sink. Brushed nickel fixtures offer a sleek accent.
