1978 Trade Wind 25′ – Curby

[URIS id=470]

Client: Dudley and Chris of The Shop.

Vessel: 1978 Trade Wind 25′

Location: Santa Barbara

Purpose: New food service Airstream with a truncated back


To maximize access, Innovative Spaces removed the back third off the Airstream and created an outdoor cooking and service bar area. This feature is a powerful attention-getter.

The 3-sided solid tail section features a bar top of refinished reclaimed wood that adds an additional 1-1/2’ to the Airstream’s overall length. Beverages and snacks are delivered from an inside food prep and storage area to patrons who can either stand or sit on bar stools.

Innovative Spaces installed vinyl flooring, cleanable countertop surfaces, and stainless steel equipment inside the prep area that meets Health Department standards and codes. In addition we added a roof-mounted air conditioner, a hood vent fan, and home-style hot water heater. Making this Airstream a fully functioning kitchen.


  • Exterior tail section is completely weatherproof.
  • A new reinforced and insulated wall was constructed with an access door.
  • Both the wall and door are covered with reclaimed wood planks mounted horizontally.
  • Rainwater drains through the recycled wood Trex-like plank flooring onto the ground below, or into a water catchment tank, if preferred.
  • Several 110v outlets provide ample plug-ins for smaller appliances, such as blenders and food processors.
