Favorite Mod Under $100

OK all you AS "gurus" this is your chance. For those who have towed for awhile, been to some ralleys or caravans, or are just creative...what is the best mod you have done (or see) that cost under $100.

Three items we added to our AS are a 7-bottle upright wine storage rack made of velcro strips screwed to the space beneath our refrigerator (about $7), a 12-volt plug in the street-side midside compartment above the wheels for connecting an air compressor (about $8), and an aluminum bar bent at both ends with omega-shaped fairleads on the door and the body to hold the door in the 90-degree open position so we can open the kitchen window (about $9).

We put insulated windshield protectors on all the windows in our safari for about $30. We bought three of the winshield reflectors at Camping World for $10 each. These are the big one for class A mohos. They cut very nicely and are held in place by the curtains in the Airstream. We were even able to cut a piece for the skylight that I wish we didn't have. This system works great for storage and traveling.

Buy 2 bottles of excellent wine - then go camping, drink it with your friends while looking at your Airstream. 2 bottles of nice wine - $ 80.00. Some brie and crackers - $ 15.00. Enjoying with friends in your Airstream - priceless!

So true...

Uwe,

Spoken like a true Californian. What is your favorite wine?

I prefer the Cabs, Pinots, Zins, and anything else red.

Jerry

Jerry,

My warm weather favorite is a dry Chardonnay, chilled.
When temps dip below 55 ( brrrr......) I prefer a Merlot or Cabernet.

I don't drink wine, so instead I replaced my old horn with a very loud aftermarket 135db one. Then I installed a "oogaa" horn so that my kids knew I was at their mom's house to pick them up without my having to see her face to face. Then i installed a daytime driving light kit so that my lights go on with ignition and off when I shut down (one too many dead batteries when forgot to turn off lights.) All the above bought from JC Whitney for about $80.00. I'll be doing the LED light thing next as above but in red (I think).

Don't know if you guys been divorced before, but the oogaa was well worth the money! And I won't buy kegs...did you hear about the one exploding in someone's face a few weeks ago in the news? Granted, I could use the other 20 bucks saved for some nice ale though, hmm.
