Does anyone have the specs for the gas struts they used to do the bed lift mod?

A Few Additional Changes

Last weekend we made the following additional changes:

1. Moved the hand towel rod from the interior of the bathroom door to the wall between the shower and the bathroom sink.
Reason: It just made sense to us to have the towel rod near the sink and it didn't look correct having a towel hanging in front of the mirror we installed on the interior of the bathroom door.

2. Moved the bathroom tissue roller from inside the bathroom cabinet door to the wall near the bathroom toilet.
Reason: Too much of the very limited space inside the cabinet, below the bathroom sink, was taken up by the roller and tissue paper. We now have a significant amount of more storage in the cabinet under the bathroom sink.

3. I can't remember if I previously posted this one ... but a while back we installed towel hooks on the wall ... above the tank monitor switch ... to hang bath towels.

4. New bed linens. We have never used the comforter ... I guess we probably should instead of saving ... oh well, new bed linens.

Changes planned for this upcoming weekend ... installation of the new roller shades from IKEA. After pricing OceanAir shades I couldn't justify the price difference between the IKEA shades ($100 for 5 shades) versus the OceanAir shades ($600 for 5 shades).

Thank you Lisa. I'm looking forward to this weekend project with the roller shades. When other plans keep us from camping ... it's a fun alternative to have Airstream projects.

Would you be willing to post the stock number or whatever, for the IKEA shades?

Yes, absolutely, very happy to share the information. Following is the direct link to the shades:

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/search/?qu...t+roller+blind

They come in white, gray and black. We chose the gray so the attached photos reflect the SKU for gray. The 22 foot Sport requires 5 shades if you replace each of the blinds. So the attached photos reflect the SKUs for the 5 sizes.

Hope this helps.

Love your updates in the bath. I will be stealing your TP holder move. What a difference in the storage under the sink with that one.

Regarding the OEM comforter. I took a pair of scissors to mine. Hacked off the fold-over pillow cover. I now use it as a mattress pad under the sheets. Works great.

What terrific ideas! Seriously I hope the AS designers are reading your posts. The TP holder should absolutely be on the wall and not in the tiny cabinet. You need that for storage.
It's all about functional storage, and how to creatively maximize what you have.
Well done!

Thank you for the feedback.

The key on relocating the tissue holder is .... placement far enough back away from the door where you don't knock it with your leg going and in and out of the bathroom area ... but far enough forward of the toilet so that you can get a screw driver in there to mount it.

The Roller Shades are Installed - Yeah!!!

I hung the Tuppler roller shades that we purchased at IKEA and we're really pleased with the quality and the "look" of the shades. The shades are advertised as block out shades and they definitely do block out the sun (the last photo demonstrates how dark the interior became when all of the shades were in their down position). I really wanted the OceanAir shades (quoted price was $600 + shipping and taxes). But the IKEA shades (total cost was $109 including taxes) were a much more affordable solution.

Another Find

I know it sounds like I work for IKEA or that I'm "marketing" their products ... but neither is the situation ... I just keep finding great things for the Airstream at IKEA ... I guess because the Europeans are very good with space utilization. It probably is not the best thing for my little pocket book that I am only 10 minutes from IKEA .....

This is a trash basket we purchased at IKEA which is mounted on the wall ... enabling the floor space to be utilized for something else where the trash basket used to occupy space. Now we can place the dog food bowls and dog watering bowl in the small space where the trash basket used to occupy valuable space. Photo attached.

And Then I Found This

This is a neat item that IKEA sells for organizing pots and pans. We found it to be perfect for "nesting" our drinkware so that they don't slide all over the place when we're in transit. The neat thing about this item is that it expands and contracts to fit whatever footprint your needs require.

I placed it on its side in the last photo to demonstrate how this item could be placed in a different position for wall mounting and utilized in other capacities (perhaps mounted on a wall or inside a closet to hang towels or clothes or other items ... I have lots of ideas for ways to use this).
