RV Show

I headed across the bay today to the Pleasanton RV Show. I headed straight of the Airstreams first of course! It is interesting to see that Airstream has not changed the "basic" design of many items...some could be direct replacement for certain items in my '82 MH. Got some more ideas for my upgrades and I'm definitely putting in the round sink when I change my countertop. I would love to put the padding above the door and add the new bath door window to some door in the MH!

Quality looks good, but not what it should be though for doubling the price just for the name sake. Trim in corners of counters in kitchens and bath are not straight, round sinks are not installed in ever trailer with the logo directly to the back, saw dust in cabinets, etc. for a $60k 20 foot trailer it should be better then perfect. I wouldn't mind having one though!

I would like to have the new chrome letters on the outside, it looks very classy.

I was thumbing through my bookmarks and I ran across a few sites/articles that do a great job dispelling some of the many myths about batteries, chargers, converters, etc. Science rules every time!

http://www.phrannie.org/battery.html

http://www.marxrv.com/12volt/12volt.htm

http://www.rvlover.net/Magnetek.htm

This is also an excellent book, you can get it in electronic form as well

Dean, you've got me ALL worked up now! Will be attending the Tampa RV Supershow tomorrow. Been waiting on this for months now.
I really like that bathroom window. Maybe would make my hallway from kitchen to bedroom a bit brighter. Sweet looking addition!
Will post some pix tomorrow evening.
Thanks, Derek

Was all excited to be able to drive our 82 MH but

When we got there, there were a few more gotchas .....the link between the new recored heater core was not working.....need to find a new/old one....new rear air bags had been ordered from Michigan....everytime they think they have it all, there is another old part that they can't put back on and is no longer made.....argh......maybe next week? Chevy may have built millions of 454 7.4 L P30 chassis but some of their components are hard to come by......what was I thinking when (I)we bought this Sweet P (my husband claims no responsibility)? paula

Some of the people who have the round sink are not so crazy about it. Not sure why, but a single squarish sink might be better....that is what we put in SteSpot.....a Franke....not an RV sink....a bit deeper...but you can put a big pot in it.....p

I've heard that too, but I'm set on having a round sink!

You think you have bad luck looking for parts. I have been looking for 90 days or so for a generator door

Heading north to MH next week for a weeks worth of work on the MH and wouldn't you know, northern Calif is finally going to get rain...that will put a damper on all the outside projects!

Things are never easy! I really wanted to put a corian countertop and round sink in kitchen, but I think the costs are a bit high. I really need to slow down on my money spending on the Motorhome. I love the round sinks, but also thinking it might not be so practical. So the only think cheaper then Corian is Formica. I'm not opposed to Formica...some of it these days looks really good. It would probably be better and easier to install a top mount sink with Formica, but almost all stainless top mount sinks have faucet holes...I want one with no faucet holes. see, just isn't easy! It is possible to do an undermount sink with Formica and a ring made for such.

Corian and the sink I want will run over $1000. I would like to be $500 or less.

Do they make formica that looks like Corian?...
We have Corian counter tops and dinette, but the counters have holes for the plumbing...our sinks are under counter mounted...
