i'm the original owner of the unit, and i'll admit we've had no rain to speak off for the 18 months or so i've owned the rig here in southern california... well that changed this weekend.

i'm preparing for the ABQ Balloon Fiesta Rally and saturday morning after a rainstorm dumped about 2" of water, i had an equal amount on my 'dream stream floor...

reason: the kitchen skylight when installed at the factory, had the attachment screws "over driven". meaning that the screws cracked the poly plastic skylight at each and every point of attachment from over tightning of the fastners. i had two inch cracks eminating from each fastner.

if your an owner w/ this option, i'd check this condition str8 away. the factory was very carefull w/ caulking, but missed about a four inch section, and thus, water freely flowed through.

i removed the interior skylight shade, the interior trim pc, recaulked from below, and them went above to the roof, and caulked all the cracks and recaulked the fastners, until i can have the skylight removed and replaced after the rally.

see pictures below.

mr. k,

Wht not AT the rally?

PS: I carry lots of sealant!

Just returned from Colonial Airstream. My wife and I are looking to trade up to a 30" or 34'. I like the split bath in the 30' because it a much more open feeling than the 34' bath that's to one side. Airstream really needs to offer the split bath in the 34' They are now putting the flat screen TV on the wall behind the dinette. When I sat in the dinette the TV cut into my shoulder and you would have to lean forward to eat. Who thinks this stuff up??? The excuse was , the arm the TV mounted on over the credenza was pulling out of the aluminum wall. How about just reinforcing this area of the wall frame when the unit is built?? My biggest dislike about the 34' (and this is the unit I want to buy) is the stove top, next to the drapes the credenza or leather couch in the L-shape lounge.I guess they figure if you have enough money to buy the 34', your not really going to cook in it. NOT!
