Important upgrade - Cap Puller

Here is our new exterior upgrade, riveted to a rib - of course - for stability.
Are there other exterior upgrades we should consider?

It needs a small light and a waste receptacle under it, so you can stagger up from the campfire, grab a new cold one, and know exactly where to go to open it. The waste receptacle will catch the bottle caps, making hungover cleanup episodes the next morning unnecessary.

What if the runoff, causes floor rot?

Hmmm this could be a BIG problem - I know alcohol does not freeze - does it prevent rot? Guess Janet needs to attach a pan to catch it with a drain that goes into the trailer and connects with the plumbing - to be enviromentally correct - don't want all that beer on the ground.

Hmm, actually, once of those wall mountable cork screw arbors would complete this installation nicely. Ok, i'm off to the kitchen gadget store now.....

Rot's not a problem - aluminum floor on minuet... but I suppose there's a case to be made for hanging a drip bucket - maple tap style - to catch the overflow. We use beer for slug bait.

We better watch it. Airstream will see this and it will become a $150.00 option on future CCD models.

I have an old Coca-Cola one that I plan to mount.

Where to get cap pullers

Lest you get envious of those that found those relics of the past, Restoration Hardware, the chain retailer, sells them. They are one of those inexpensive items they sell so you can buy something after you browse the store mostly out of curiosity. I have one on my screen porch but not my Airstream (yet).
