I bought this book because we wanted to remodel the interior of an Airstream and we thought this book would give us plenty of good ideas. I mean, after all, the book is called Airstreams Custom Interiors and it's David Winick! Well, it's actually just a photo journal of a small handful of customization jobs that Winick did on a few antique (and very small, I might add) Airstreams.

It's not really a book stuffed full of tips and great ideas as the title would have you believe. It's a small collection (I think somewhere around 3 to 5) tiny antique trailers that Winick remodeled. The photos show you what the job looked like in various stages and the final outcome. It's one of those books that you would look at for 15 minutes while you finished your coffee at Barnes & Noble. Certainly not worth the money being charged for this book. Like they say, "You can't judge a book by its cover"...No kidding! I could have saved myself some money if this one had a more accurate title.

This book is a tremendous disappointment. I bought this book because I wanted to see interiors and it includes precious few. There are lots of photos of exteriors and close-ups of gleaming pieces of metal, but not interiors. I've purchased hundreds of books, but this is the first one I've ever wanted to throw in the trash right after I got it.

David Winick is an amazing craftsman! Yes, I'm biased as I am a proud owner of a Winick Bambi, but I highly recommend this book be added to your collection. Similar to his outstanding work on Airstreams, those sleek, iconic American gems rolling down the road, this book is beautifully presented and is a MUST HAVE for anyone interested in Airstreams, and especially for anyone contemplating their own renovation. David provides terrific before & after photos and shares his knowledge of taking trailers through the resto process. I especially love his brutal honesty when he says something is, "butt ugly", and therefore should be crafted into something more palpable (dinette & refrigerator). You will not be disappointed in this book!

I purchased a 1964 Airstream Safari a number of years ago. It was and is in really good shape, having spent most of its life in the back of a lake cabin lot. I wanted to restore the trailer, but at the same time not remuddle it. After reading the book and a visit to the nearest Airstream dealer to look at the new versions, I now have it figured out. The emphasis of the book seems to be keep what works and update where needed, definitely, not like some books, rip it all out, start over and end up with an expensive piece of aluminum kitsch.

The book does have a tendency to push the author's business and line of thinking, but does provide a number basic design ideas to upgrade these old classics. Overall this is a book that classic Airstream owners need to have to share the vision of classic Airstreams.

Winick shows us why he's Top Dog in the world of Airstream renovations. Not only is he a master craftsman in myriad materials, he's also an amazing designer with a brilliant sense of proportion and propriety. He takes us inside his renovations and thought process to make the transformations seem entirely achievable. This is a much-needed reference-book-slash-joy-ride for the slightly un-hinged aluminum junkie ;-)

It has a nice collection of photos from Airstream's files of some of their best products, plus photos and descriptions of the author's work. The custom renovation work shown is very practical for a travel trailer. The photos of the renovated trailers vary in quality and are sometimes disturbingly fuzzy or perspective-distorted. For inspiration, it's definitely worth having this book if you're going to do your own renovation, as I am, but don't expect to see in this book custom-yacht level of quality photos or work.

I tell my wife, my middle aged crisis purchases (i'm 47, when's it going to happen???) are going to be 1) a vintage mustang 2) a powder blue bianchi road bicycle and 3) a david winick custom airstream.

This book is the next best thing to owning one of david' creations. It is a reverent, detailed, and nostalgic look at the airstream and the craft of a fine artist. It is the perfect addition to a coffee table or a bedstand (the latter being well placed for dreaming of the great road trips one could do in a winick airstream).

The photography is great, and david's text is the perfect accompaniment, allowing non-artists like myself to have some windown on the creative process.

Perfect for yourself or for a holiday gift!!!

If you haven't been privileged enough to see David Winick's magnificent Airstream Custom Interiors in person (one is in the permanent collection of MOMA), then this book is the next best thing!

His brilliant craftsmanship and keen eye make me long for a life on the road as he "rebuilds America one rivet at a time".

This beautiful book is a welcome addition to any library and will afford you many satisfying trips on the open road, even if only from the comfort of your living room chair. . .
