Get her leveled out and balanced at the scales and your stability concerns should disappear.

Welcome to the forum.
Those spacious interior shots make me jealous, comparing them to my 25'.

Today I finished up removing all of the cabinets and platform for the bed assembly. I'm installing a bunk bed with a convertible futon to bed on the bottom. Much better use of space for us. My son on the top bunk, I'm below.

Rerouted the fused box mounting in the right rear corner by the floor. Some what of a pain in the a$$ but completed.

Found a about a 6" X 8" section of rot by the read hatch door that enters the rear cabin. Cleared all of that out and cut in new section and sealed.

Needing to order from AS the aluminium interior corner pieces, got the center piece from a stock piece from HD.

Need a small piece of carpet to cut in to the existing and the new bed assembly can go in.

All the pieces for the bed assembly including the bed are listed in the classified forum section for anyone interested.

Congrats on your beautiful new 34' Airstream. I have a real soft spot for the 34' cuz I hear they tow so well and with 50% more braking and suspension compared to the 31' they should tow better.

I agree with your logic to find the best one that you can and pay whatever you have to pay.

Welcome to the forums!

Wow! Great looking unit! Welcome to the world of the 34'!

The furnace does warm the unit well, except perhaps in the bed/bunk room. I keep my bedroom warm by pointing the heat vent under the kitchen sick to the rear, and placing a box fan on low in the hallway so it can push the warm air from the kitchen and bath to the back. The heating vent in the back takes a dive to do the holding tanks and flow is much reduced by the time it gets to the outlet. Remember to seal the many spots air (and rodents) can get in such as around the battery boxes in front, and around the refrigerator.

Enjoy your new home! Document your changes and be sure to post photos of them!
