Agreed. As a new AS owner and before we even had a chance to take it out, I walked into the back window, which was up half way. I suggested to my wife that we either open the potentially offending windows a little or all of the way up. However, I like the foam noodle idea as well. Perhaps in a day-glow color.

By the way, my wife's head has come in contact with the cabinets above our rear, twin beds a few times. I added a self-stick, 1/2" rubber, insulation strip on the bottom of the doors. That should soften any future blows to the head.

Too funny! I immediately starting searching where to buy AlumaIce then caught on. So, is it a prank too that it's not better than frozen peas - wouldn't want to waste some good ammunition or space in the freezer!

What, only once? I get it a couple times per trip. Invisible windows and a ball cap on a bald head make for bumps and profanity.

It doesn't help that the slope of the ground can lull you into a false sense of security! For example, if you have to raise the street side of the camper, then open the windows, you'll be used to them being higher up. Next trip, you had to raise the curb side, and you'll be walking around and BAM - Where'd that come from? Oh, right.

Someone would need to test I guess. If it's good, imagine the opportunity. heck you could even make aluminum ice cubes for high end whiskeys and sell them as a "must have" for new Airstreamers.

Pink flamingoes - check
Awning lights - check
Air Flag - check
AlumaIce - check

Yes, the rear overheads on a twin can be brutal. I've learned to avoid them, but my wife hasn't yet.

No aluminum ice cubes yet, but stainless cubes for chilling whiskey do exist...

Thanks for the great laugh. It looked liked a real label. By the way, since the peas were out and thawed by the time he quit bleeding, we had peas for supper. A prudent camper. Hubby wasn't thrilled with dinner that night

AIRSTREAM'S MAY BE HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH.

Seems anything that brings joy, will also bring sorrow?
