Hi Uluwene and congratulations. I want that door handle!
I started that first thread CanoeStream mentioned and should have done a follow-up. I agree with his take on it. The odors were from the "newness" and all the plastic. We started airing it out regularly whenever the weather was nice, and apparently the warmer days we had early in the spring really sped up the "off-gassing" process, because now the odors aren't noticeable at all. You might try to at least keep the shower and bath vents up, as well as opening the fan and bedroom vents. We opened all the windows and the door as well. I found that trying to mask the odors just made a fumey soup.
Have fun!
Janet

Roadside Awning

Notice on the 2008 20' Safari there is a awning on the roadside for the windows. Is this standard or is it optional - and if optional what was the cost? I just searched the Airstream site but like last year it is worthless as far as the 20' Safari goes. There is no listing under specifications or options.
Have a 2007 20' and might want to get mine upgraded if it doesn't cost a arm and a leg.

That would be the optional awning package. We ordered this option with with our 2007 20' Safari, which included the rear plus roadside awnings. The curbside awning is standard.

We paid $750 for the optional awning package, about half the list price (there was a "misunderstanding" between the saleman and the dealership owner, resulting in the reduced price.)

Rear & roadside awnings deployed:

20 Ft. Safari

Congratulation's on your new trailer. We have the same unit (07 version) and Love it.
We have camped in it twice and find the layout to work real well.The kitchen and bathroom have been a real plus.
We have had No Warranty issues to date.
We leave for a 2500-3000 mile trip in a week and will really get to try it out.
Hope you get to use your's soon!

What are peoples experience with these appliances?
Like everyone says, an extended warranty is a gamble. I did this once on an A/C unit on an SOB and that did pay for a bad control board and thermostat. Nothing else has ever failed in the extended warranty period on my past and current trailers that would justifiy the extra costs.

Also read the individual warranties carefully since some components my have warranties longer than the standard Airstream 2 year coverage. I think the A/C unit has two years parts and labor and the 3rd year is parts only (although the shroud is only covered for 6 months by Duo-Therm). The system monitor panel (assuming they still are using the same brand) was warranted for 5 years.

Assuming that you want the same package from Zip-Dee, the list price (NOT the Forum price) for the 10' street side window awning is $502 and the rear window 'special 52' is $324. They are running about 7-8 working days on shipping as of today, and come complete with everything you need to do the install yourself. ...Interested?

Lewster, that list price already sounds like a decent price for the Zip-Dee awnings!

flush door handle part#

Ok, so I'm lusting after that nice flush door handle on these newest models. My own 7-month-old 20' Safari has the big hook-type handles...

So I called AS parts in Ohio and got the new door handle information:
#382034, "Flush mount latch for lavy door"

Armed with this part#, I called Inland RV just now and initiated an order (AS Ohio said I had to go through a dealer to order parts.) They're going to get back to me when they have the cost/shipping details.

Cheers,
-jd.

Awnings

Thanks to everyone for the roadside/back awning info. Was not aware that these were available as an option in 2007 - they didn't appear on any list of options I saw. Lew I might be interested in the awnings at some point but am definitely not interested in trying to do the install myself. May give Airstream a call and see what they would charge as I intend to visit Jackson Center in the next couple of months. Or maybe I could get Out-Of-Doors Mart where I bought the trailer to do the job.

Whaaaat?! They must be kidding. I've not heard back from Inland RV yet, but when first talking with the parts folks we were guessing it'd be maybe $30 -- they were concerned that's all I was ordering because they have a $20 minimum!

I'll let you know what I hear from here.

Cheers,

Door Latch

Hi,

I replaced the lever latch in my 2007 25CCD Ocean Breeze with the flush replacement latch. It is a great improvement. The product is from Redirect to Mobella. Southco.com acquired Mobella, Eskilstuna, Sweden in 2003. The product is very high grade and is made for the marine market. No mounting screws were included from Airstream. I found stainless steel screws in the bulk bins at a local Ace Hardware.

Southco - MR-04-106-24 :: MR - Omni Door Latches

Part Number: MR-04-106-24

Bob
