Full awnings and solar will make your new airstream a much more usable and pleasant trailer. And when buying as a new option, the price is negotiable.
The awnings make your Airstream feel and look cooler. They also help the fridge stay cooler. The solar lets you stop anywhere without a generator, using your propane system as primary energy source.
A maintenance note: Airstream is using foam gaskets to mount the awning support poles, as well as many fittings on the Airstream. They are inadequate, can allow minor leaks inside the walls, which can rot the wood subfloor. Mask off a border around them and apply a good RV sealant over the gaskets.
