Mike all 3 of my AS's have the outlets outside. And I'm sure they are factory. They are chrome. The 83 and the 73 have duplex and the 69 has a single outlet. ODMRV has a single and vintage trailer has a duplex cover.

Here is a pic of the 69 you can see the outlet on the left of the pic. It is a single outlet. On my avatar I think you can see the duplex outlet near the battery compartment

Thanks, Anthony! It's interesting to see the different placements.

Completed the installation on Saturday with expert help from friend and fellow Airstreamer Brad Norgaard (FLYFSHR) (see pic below). Even though we both agreed that the location for the new outlet was perfect, I was a bit apprehensive cutting holes by myself but having Brad around calmed my nerves (he did most of the cutting). The hardest part was getting the holes cut just right for the metal outlet box.

This project was made easier by the fact that the storage compartment already had an 120v outlet in it. This oddly placed outlet took up a fair amount of room in an already limited storage area, so this modification was a win-win for me. We simply used the wiring from this old outlet. I'll strip and polish the new outlet when I polish the Airstream later this year.

Looks good Mike, I have the same problem when it comes to making holes in the skin of our trailer too. BUT when a friend needs a hole I run right over and dive right in. (is that strange)

That is not strange at all. I had no hesitation cutting into Mike's skin. Although we measured about four times before making that first cut. We checked for ribs and electrical behind the skin because once that first cut is made, you're committed.
