Runaround Sue Needs T.L.C.

In the winter of 2009, New Prairie took on a challenging new project: renovating a 1961 Airstream Safari. Our goal was to create a beautiful, healthy, and practical space with as many environmentally-friendly features as possible.

She was in bad shape when we found her. She’d been docked and neglected a long time in Arizona, exposed to all kinds of weather. We brought her back to Champaign – Urbana through a dust storm, where she waited patiently for us to begin restoring her.

Below are pictures of Sue before restoration began. Be sure to also see the restoration in process and the Runaround Sue Ready to Roll!
