In tribute to all the ROadside bars, seedy dives, and backROAD dancehalls that have inspired MiRaNda LamBErt along the way, she’s decided it’s time to hit the AmERICAN highways … like a troubadour cowgirl on the run.

 With an old suitcase filled with her best worn-out jeans, her cleanest dirty shirts (and of course, her JunK GyPSY gear), and her PinK guitar slung over her back she’s going back to her music roots…BaCK to all the beauty, character, and soul those iconic bars hold within their legendary walls and on their old creaky dance floorS.

{GRuENE HALL – one of MirANDA’s & our favorite danceHaLLS}

Soooo before she hits the road, we gypsies are decking out a 1953 FLYinG CLOUD AiRSTREAM!

{MiRANDA’s new tin can on WhEELS}

 WE’vE got 9 days to turn this SiLVER buLLET into a hip-hoppin, honky-tonkin’ happenin ParKIN LoT saLOOn for MiranDa’s new tour, RoADSIDE bARS & PinK GuiTARS!!

{ThE EAgLE is landing.}

A QUiCK & DiRTY history of how this all came to be…

  • sooo, we randomly came up with the tour name for MiRANDA years ago..
  • then…MiRANDA wrote ‘THE AirSTREAM SONG’ for us…
  • then…we designed the logo for the tour which has an AiRSTREAM front and center on the art
  • then…she decided she needed an OFFICIAL airSTREAM on her tour that we aptly named
  • then we all decided we needed to deck it out JunK GypsY StyLe

And a little more to get you up to speed on aiRSTREAM renovation progress…here’s a quick glance at a few before shots…

    OhMaGosh! It was around Spring Break weekend & I was headed to the local bootshop & this (well, technically not specifically ‘this’ exact one, but “a”) Bee-u-tiful, Shinnnny Airstream caught ma eye! I SOOO wanted to follow it, haha – just to get a better look (knowing Nothing about you gals’ project). I just loved the nostalgia of the tin can on wheels, but I HAD to pick up my boots before the shop closed!and missed it. I went home & raved to my husband about the tag-along silver bullet, lol. I am dying to know if y’all were in South Texas (Corpus) during your time with the project??? Is there any final footage of the project? I’d love to see how y’all gloriously junked it out! Maybe i missed it, I’ll keep lookin’!

    Great job on the trailer! Interested in where or what the stamped metal panels are that are used on the cabinet next to the couch?

    Can’t wait to see what the finished interior looks like; we’re currently upgrading a 1977 Airstream.
