I'd keep searching internet and talking to hitch shops to see if you can avoid surgery on trailer...

Robert makes good point about newer door windows being frosted glass, which makes seeing who is outside a challenge.. Our older door is clear glass, but has annoying roll-up window shade between door and screen door.. Small peep-hole device could give you vision outside, but wouldn't address desire for more light..
I forgot to mention that I plan on replacing the tongue jack with either one of the fold-up ones or regular type further back on the side. I've measured it out and with the extended ball mount it should work.

Beautiful trailer and pics!

I always find this sort of thing funny. My shower water wouldn't be any different than someone that sets up a solar shower outside. And as I mentioned before, I would actually run a filter to the end of the hose.

This was brought up and addressed earlier in the thread. Problem is the rear tires of the 2 motorcycles. They rest on the gap between the truck-bed and the tailgate. Wouldn't work unfortunately.

Hi,
I'm thinking that there are enough of us to have an informal Bay Area rally. I know there are at least 4 of us in Mill Valley alone. You're in Emeryville. Maybe we could figure out someplace close and beautiful to get together one weekend? Sonoma coast? Russian River? I'm brand new too and am taking Dahlia out on her maiden voyage on Sunday. I would love to trade ideas and learn from the veterans.
What do you think?

My wife and I live in Roseville but we would be interested in joining you if our schedule permits. We are part of an informal boondocking rally at Brannan Island SP near Rio Vista August 9-11.

We are exploring the north coast starting next week. If anyone is venturing out & want to meet up let me know. Cheers!

Hey,
Have you all checked out the High Sierra rally? Aug 22-25? That sounds fun.... My friend, and her 19' Bambi, and I are planning on it.
I'm thinking of a Bay Area Rally, mid Sept. in Olema? I haven't even called them to check availability.
This is clearly a little ambitious on my part, seeing as how I haven't even taken Dahlia on her maiden voyage yet. But, I'd really like to learn from my local, like-minded people.
Thoughts?

Hi GP, what a great rig! Thanks for all the pics and good info. I got a 2010 16ft in late May, but have yet to take her out for real (due to various and tedious issues with the TV) so all this road testing you are doing is super helpful for me.

The BAL-Leveler was new to me and looks really cool.

What LEDs did you use? I got a couple barrel type with 300 lumens to try out, and am not totally in love with them.

Thanks again for the great tips and thoughts.

For those with new Airstreams, Congrats.. You may want to check for a thread on group event at Jackson Rancheria in October, or Casini Ranch in April of 2014.. There is a growing group of northern Calif Airstreamers that assemble twice each year for long weekends, pot-luck meals and informal socializing.. Not a club, just a group of people who are enjoying life on wheels.. Group has spun out a few smaller groups, including a number who traveled to Lassen/Lava Beds this month.. New owners always welcome, though Jackson has waiting list with 50 spots confirmed at present...

Love the bal leveler. Again, well worth the money!!

These are the ones we got. This was the 2nd set of lights we tried. The first ones were way too cool a color and looked too much like fluorescent light. These were perfect:

Bought the same model last week and was told by dealer that I couldn't buy rock guards from Airstream for the 16' Sport, (or a bumper) were you able to get rock guards?
