Super nice Safari and great photo's.It's amazing that airstream can pack so much in a 23' and still make it look so roomy.

Did you have to loosen the clamp to get it to swivel this far? Mine will only come about half way around. Looks like you can loosen the clamp on the ball and get it to go further like your's seems to do.

Pedaler,

I stopped the shower leaks after I finished the caulk job that Airstream didn't. Are you having any problem with water wicking under the vanity sink? I don't think mine has any sealer under there at all, as we get water dripping into the cabinet from the counter edge at the sink. Silvergate, you should check for that too. Next time I have mine out of storage, I plan on lifting the sink and sealing it properly.

So happy you got your beautiful trailer at last...yipeee and what a gorgeous set up with your silver truck...it's just perfect! Great to see you had such a positive experience at Southwest Coaches too, as Troy/Aaron and the whole crew there really are wonderful to deal with.

Great pics BTW and make sure to send more from your maiden trip to the desert!

Have fun, happy camping, and hope to see you on the road one of these days!

Barbara

BTW, that repeating, crackling fireplace DVD is very soothing!
And sounds wonderful throughout the trailer.

Oh, there’s Fenghuang elevating the party above…
And will be used to indicate when the antenna is in raised position.

Nearby is that Fantastic Fan with the ol’ in & out switch.

He might cook it on the stove (over the conventional gas oven)...
or over the campfire...
or put it in the microwave (over the refrig) when having full hook-ups.

Here’s a look at that rear Fantastic Fan per request of rgodfrey…
This one only pushes air out (the front fan is reversible).
Note model of Spirit of St. Louis, originally built here in San Diego!

Two more notes:
SilverGate says he did not loosen anything on the LCD-TV mount...
It is mounted by the factory closer to the corner edge...
Which enables it to make complete swivel towards back.

I came well stuffed at Thanksgiving by way of Mervyn's.

Looks like SilverGate has flown to bed for now...
He says that tomorrow he'll get those awnings sailin'...
And thanks all for those wonderful comments!

Diego

Randy and Pat Godfrey,

Nope, no vanity sink leaks, but we'll keep a look out!

However, the pull out pantry pix reminds me....ours would not stay closed when we got the trailer. Had to shim out the latch with a couple of washers and a longer screw.
