I'm not sure where you get it, but it definitely looks like it just bolts right on. Not sure if you can tell from the picture but it just sits on the rail and attaches with three screws to hold it in place.

Again, I haven't had a chance to get that damn stubby screwdriver I need, but after I do I'll remove it a take some better shots. It was really right and sunny when I took those and the contrast of it being in the shade makes it hard to see well.

Looks like it would be fairly inexpensive as well. Not much to it.

It's a Sprinter option that Airstream doesn't get. I order the new factory stop from the dealer.

Are you talking about the second row lounge seats?

Ours is a 2010 and it swivels out.

Here's a picture of my brother in law enjoying the views.

I used a lavatory chromed brass tube drain pipe for the generator exhaust because that was the only one I could find that was small enough. I got it at Home Depot. I used a Magnaflow polished stainless steel tip for the diesel exhaust. I did not weld it on but I drilled out the drain hole and tapped it and used a quarter inch stainless steel screw to clamp it to the pipe. I found the best price for that on Amazon.

Hi I am new to the forum and to Airstream as well as to the WBCCI.
Love what I reading hear and love my 2013 interstate. Not so much about the leadership of the WBCCI but I am to new to judge on this.
Of course as a German born and raised as well as trained engineer (notice but not trained in the english language too well) I also could not leave my Interstate alone.
Here is what I did to it so fare:
1. Had installed a Drone security system with remote start and app for the IPhone.
2. Had both side windows covered with dark foil. Not the little once.
3. Installed a Bora exhaust tip.
4. Installed weather mats in the front and remove carpet.
5. Removed all the stickers.
6. Installed Mercedes Benz badges on the Alcoa wheels.
7. Installed a step on the hitch.
8. Removed all the fancy velcro on covers in the back under the couch.
9. Installed wind guides on the front windows.
10. Installed license plate covers.
11. Installed a nice IPhone holder on the dash.
12. Installed a driving camera (Dash-view).
13. Removed back second row sets to install an office.
14. Installed tire pressure monitor.
15. Installed a Xbox360 for the grand kids to play.
Thanks to the forum I got many other ideas to tinker on it.
It looks like to be self sufficient is a must on repairs as my experience with the dealer is everything takes for ever and they need the interstate for a long time. I still have to work and use it for this and just cannot have it sitting around for days or weeks. The forum helps a lot to find and fix little problems here and there and not have to go to the dealer ship.

Could you please describe both the dark foil on the side windows and what tire monitor you installed.

Is tinting the 2 front large windows.
Just got the tire pressure monitor TPM with pass trough sensors so I do not have to remove the sensors. Everything I read about it they work OK and I purchased an extra one for the spare tire.

I used to own a set from Hawkshead, but for the 3500 chassis, I was too concerned that the flimsy rubber inner rear wheel air nozzle would bend under the weight when spinning and either allow air out or damage it, and with the plastic extender, even more so. Did you just mount them on the stock inlets for the rear inners or on the extenders? Have you had any issues with the inner wheel air sensors?
