LED clearance lights, $4.99 each, $50 for enough to do all the clearance lights on a 10 light system.

I SO want to go camping with you!!!
Mine would be the light dimmers I installed over the front gaucho. $25 each and they really set the mood in the evening. That plus a great bottle of wine like Uwe says.

Breakaway Switch - CHECK IT!!!!!

Forgot to add that checking that Break-Away Switch is REALLY Important!!!

Putting a new one on is CHEAP insurance - $8 or $10 bucks. $12 if the place is high-falutin'!

DO IT!!!

Stainless Covers

My stainless steel replacement water heater and furnace covers came to about $40 apiece installed.

The stainless steel stove vent that I installed tonight was $97. It replaces the very ugly gray plastic vent.

The combination of all three really makes the trailer look great. Why doesn't Airstream at least offer them as an option to the cheap painted and/or plastic items.

I really like my Simplehuman trashcan. It's made to use plastic grocery bags for liners. Fits perfect in the AS and has a step lever to open the lid. Looks good too.

Hi, I can think of three cheap things I did to my trailer. #1. Plastic door holder, $5.00, to hold the bathroom door open. #2. Steel pin with ring attached, $2.00, to hold folded table extension in place while traveling. Drill one 1/4" hole in both peices of wood of the table extender while not extended, then insert pin, problem solved. #3. American flag decal. $15.00 Special ordered to size. In my case 13.5" X 7.0" to cover up Boo Boo, on street side, just in front of refrigerator service door. Caused by hitting parked car.

Oh yeah, my favorite mod was my new "DiamondPlate" rockguard. No current pics, but coming soon to a thread near you.
Be sure to post some pics , I'm thinking along those same lines .

A 4 inch convex mirror from NAPA, bolted to the lid of the LP gas tank, combined with a bright orange plastic hitch ball cover makes first-time solo hitching much easier. I have a paint mark in the center of the top of the tailgate, and I know which letter of the "Excella" badge to aim at when I look over my right shoulder and line them up.

We converted the back twin beds to a queen, we already had the mattress. So lumber and all maybe $100. Husband fitting the mattress in (priceless)
We did run over the $100 mark with the refreshments during the mod.

Fabricated brackets to mount a commercial cake rack under the dinette so we could put the Satellite reciever under rather than on the table. Clears up a lot of space. Cost maybe $15 total.

Lexan inserts for my screen door. Took about $50 in Lexan and several hours work. Worth the effort. Nice to be able to let the light in and keep the wind out.
