For my 64 Safari I mounted clock on right end of front overhead cabinet.

To mount I simply used 1/4"x3" screw with a washer and nut on both side of wood, letting screw head protrude 1/2" to hang clock from nail mount hole, hasn't fallen off in 10K miles.

Clock was assembled using battery operated movement (hint: new Waltham battery clocks are SILENT and no jumping/ticking second hand).

I gutted a 1940's chrome Ingersol 7" ac powered kitchen clock ($10 ebay) and put the modern battery works in.

Looks like it belongs, retro chrome, one AA battery operated, silent, accurate.

I had way too much time on my hands in the heated garage that winter.

Very Airstream Weather Station

I was thinking attached to the LP tank cover, facing towards the trailer.

Thanks,

Steamy,

The weather station I mounted in the galley is a just mechanical device that has no external monitoring available. It is the 9" inch Taylor Galvanized Weather Station in case someone else is wanting something similar. As usual, I placed a review on Amazon.

DH is a technophobe and considers an on/off switch advanced technology.

I wanted something to monitor the interior humidity level since we are fters. This fit the bill and DH is happy monitoring the barometric pressure.

I will be getting a small ac/dc powered weather radio with s.a.m.e to give us alerts for wherever we are esp. with what happened at Albert Pike.

Greetings,
I said that I would post a picture of the free clock I got after I hung it in the stream. Well, it didn't happen. I decide that the clock is way to big for the wall over the television and would not look good anywhere in the trailer.
Maybe I'll try some of the sites mentioned and look for the right timepiece or just go with my original idea of a small porthole style clock.
Thanks everyone for your ideas!

Howdy there Bluto in "Cowtown" and congats on the new Airstream. We mounted our "Porthole" plastic, aluminum looking clock with the small screw and velcro stips similar to the method used by the previous poster. After many miles, no problems. Have fun.
