Something else you might want to think about, the clearance lights are mounted with self threading zinc-plated screws. Zinc and aluminum are electrolytic enemies. In four or five years you will have irreparable damage to the skin underneath those lights, and won't know it unless you pull the lights off.

Corrosion X will reduce the probability but won't stop it. The only thing that will stop it is aluminum screws. High quality Stainless steel screws will slow it down.

I lost 10 interior rivets on the initial trip home and replace 1 or 2 a month. They call it "live riveted " for a reason.

I'm sure there are tons of other comments of this nature, I'm not sure where you would find them. This forum would be a good place to start.

I have learned so much from the Old Masters who post on this forum.

Staying couple nights

Plan on picking up your new 23CB (We have a 2017 23D we purchased at Colonial) on a Monday. Plan on staying at least one night to check all systems and look at all the fit and finish items. If something needs adjustments (it will), you have plenty of time to get it corrected. Colonial is very good. Our salesperson was Nick and took very good care. If you are having them install an Equalizer hitch, have the technician spend a few minutes explaining the set up details. Again, try every system out and make sure you are comfortable turning everything on and off. Welcome to the wonderful of Airstream. It is a great community. We love our International Serenity 23D. (now called a 23CB)

Let me invite you to come hang out over at the "23D" thread with other like minded folks... you can find us here: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f142...ad-166085.html and I'm sure you will find that thread informative and occasionally entertaining.

Thanks Rob. Iíve been ghosting the 23D site when we were in the process of deciding which model to choose.

The mods by you guys are intimidating, especially your woodwork and troutboyís solar upgrades. Thanks to GMFL, I am having Colonial install the Dometic 321 at orientation.

I am hoping all systems check out out during pickup. Fingers and toes are crossed.

I use the 8-gallon "medium" size. It's quite a bit bigger than the actual under-cabinet bin, so there's plenty of bag rolled over the lip of the bin and I can always get the bag out without spilling stuff piled on top of the bin, and have a bit of room leftover to add a few odds and ends before I take the bag to the dumpster. Some stores seem to go right from 4-gal (slightly too small) to 13-gal tall-kitchen (WAY too big) but I've always managed to find a box of new ones before I run out of the previous box.
