Amazing discovery: vents close!!!

Okay, I know this post will invite ridicule and snide remarks, but I can't resist the urge to tell the world about my amazing discovery. After 18 months of owning and using our Airstream, I just noticed that the ceiling fan/vents in the bathroom and shower each have covers that can be closed or opened with a built-in handle. Wow!!!

On our maiden voyage we spent two days in the heaviest rainfall in over 10 years around Sacramento, CA. Rain pounding on the roof found its way up under the covers and into the interior. We just thought that this was something that we had to live with. No big deal. But, now if it rains hard or if we want to reduce the outflow of warm interior air on cold days, we have a solution. Yeah!!

It's nice to find new features in our Airstream. I wonder what other surprises await.

Hi Mike - for honesty! You've discovered the pull out bed platform just aft of the fridge I trust.

In my dreams last night I was showing neighbors through my '06 FB SE. In the dream one of them easily found and came in a full-height door at the very front over the battery compartment. It was news to me. Dreams... go figger.

Yup, Bob. We found the bed platform, but it was about a year into ownership.

Some people never discover everything

When we were shopping for our trailer, we looked at a used 19' that the guy had owned for 10 years. I asked him what was the handle under the foot of the bed for. He said he never looked there, and opened it to find storage bins that he never knew he had.

In our search for our Airstream, our PO had sent us pictures which showed an air conditioning unit mounted in the roadside front window. Upon our arrival to view for the the first time, we asked if the AS a/c unit worked, as we were confused by the additional unit hanging in the window. Yes, indeed it worked. After owning the AS for 4 years, he just noticed the thrmostat in the back bedroom! We then inquired about the awning. He responded that it was in perfect condition, and was going to show it to us, but as he fumbled with it, we declined, as were did not want to risk damage by an owner that seemed unfamilar with his posession. All this having been said, they were very nice people and we made a deal quickly.
