Anyway , here's the start of the 4 inch lit kit build.

Why did we downsize from a 30 footer to a 23 footer?

Have been watching your YouTube stream for some time. Don’t own an airstream yet, but recently purchased a Sea eagle after seeing your review.

all in all, we are absolutely loving the 23D layout and size. I wish the black tank were twice as big, but apart from that, we literally have zero downsides from our old 30.

I do prefer the look of the internationals, especially the ocean breeze, but there's no doubt the flying cloud's cabinets are far more functional. I would trade my international cabinets for flying cloud cabinets in a heartbeat.

Glad the new trailer is working out for so well. Love how we airstreamers think that's a lot of room. And it is.

You could possibly have room underneath for additional black tank coupled together. Of course that means taking the belly pan off, that sounds like a fun project for you.

Maybe raise the bed a couple of inches. This bedding system from Ikea has always intrigued me.

I like that setup.

The bummer with the black tank on the 23D is that it sits about 8" higher than the grey tank. So they can't really flow together that well. I'm definitely looking at ways to fit a bigger tank in there though.

The only time it's a bummer is when we're boondocking. We can go about a week before having to dump black. Grey lasts us a LOT longer.

Hoping to remove the microwave and install a big fridge/freezer later this month. lots of research to do.

I'm VERY interested to find out what you do with the refrigerator. I would love to put a larger unit in ours; part of it is figuring out if this is our "forever" trailer or not.

Wish there was a thin microwave drawer out there that would let us both keep the microwave and gain some frig space, but ultimately, we'd be OK losing the microwave.

We'll see how it goes. I want a big fridge. i know nothing about retrofitting these for larger fridges, but it can't be rocket science... can it? I guess we'll find out in the next month or two.

Since you have lithiums you could think about a compressor driven fridge like a Vitrifrigo. We were on schedule to have one installed but it was damaged in shipment. For us it was a blessing in disguise as the door storage is terrible. Hardly any of our condiment bottles would fit in the door shelves, one interior shelve has a flip up to allow tall bottle but then it gets in the way for other items. The vegetable bins on the bottom are tiny. Just wasn't impressed with the ergonomics. Maybe a Norcold compressor fridge is better. Sticking with our Dometic 7 cu/ft.

I've thought about it, but we really like having an option for propane. Should our batteries be low, or if we have too many cloudy days in a row, at least our food won't spoil. We have a vitrifrigo in our van and it's decent for what it is.
