Whilst I was taking a break from my never ending obsession, this little Squirrel managed to get my attention.

Don't need 20 acres to turn this thing around

When i planted trees and shrubs in my backyard, I always had Airstream accessibility on my mind. Today I successfully turned the 310 around and tried out different "camping" spots. The one with rear of the 310 is the spot with full hook-up, 30 amp, sewer and water. At night this is the place where the deer hang out, because of pear tree on the right.

What a day, drove 200 miles to pick up the little sister of my 310.
Had new tires put on, installed centramatics, tire pressure monitoring system, installed a complete Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System, dialed it all in to perfection and drove back home 200 miles.
What a nice addition to my Collection

No Brad, I would not be so foolish to pull a 7000# trailer. The limited is our long distance camper until the 310 grows up a little more. It will also serve as a guest house and Motel/office for the occasional out of town job.
Look how compatible they are

Oh well, pictures would have been interesting!

I do know of one forum member that uses his 345 as a tow vehicle for his 24' enclosed race car trailer. Quite a site to see those two rigs connected together.

Are you not comfortable with taking the 310 on long trips or is more there are just things you want to work out before traveling long distances? I can certainly understand the first as it's no fun going somewhere not knowing whether you'll make it there or not.

Brad

The 310 is local (100-200 miles) for awhile until I really get to know her.
We already have several trips planned.
The Motor is basically new and runs real well, the tranny is on my watch list. The interior is finished short of the carpet in the drivers cab. The exterior is all done with new window seals, rear roof panels and rubber inserts all around.
Here are a few pictures of this cool "little" 31' Center bath Limited.
The clear coat was redone a while back and looks awesome. All the awnings are like new and hardly ever used it seems. The interior cabinet are mostly real wood and in very nice condition. All the tambour is like new.
The axles are fine and the underbelly is dentless. Note all the curbside windows.

Peter, that's a nice looking trailer

I think you need another Airstream though just so you don't run out of things to do....

Always looking

Here is something I found and have never seen before. Inside of the tail lights of the 84 trailer is this "sensor"??? This trailer used to have a very elaborate disk brake system that was converted to drum in the early 90's. maybe it has something to do with that?

I've never seen anything like that before. It's either something that senses light or senses heat from the bulb. Can't think of anything else it would be doing.

Have you traced the wires to their source? Also does the other side have the same sensor?

That looks like the "light pipe" fiber optic which connects to a street side "box" and allows you to see if the rear lights are working. Only really useful at dusk or at night.

Yes, same on the other side, definitively not a light sensor, most be heat.
I will see if I can find that wire route today.
