door latch

If you want the new latch, call PERLANE 800-783-7197, price is $69.95 + shipping. They are ordering one for me and said it would take 2 days. Someone from San Diego with an Airstream beat me too the last one in stock. Ask for Dave, as he is getting good at Airstream's.

Um, that would be me!

With shipping my total is $75.76.

Dave at Perlane said it would only take one day to order up to 100 pieces, should be need arise. (I told him I'd post the info, but you beat me to that at least, Gunny!) So I doubt anyone who wants one will see much of a delay, really.

This is targetted for marine (water, not Gunny) applications; Dave could not confirm if it includes SS screws or if [I'll] need to get my own. The perlane site is Perlane Sales- Rivnut, plusnut, insert, fastening systems, and more.

For what it's worth, the folks at Inland RV just got back to me with their price quote from Airstream: yep, $152.25. I told them I appreciated the look-up, but couldn't possibly accept such an obvious gouge by Airstream. I gave them the quote from Perlane, hoping some feedback might make it back to the mothership...

At 75 bucks this is pretty dear. I'll post (elsewhere) about the installation. Thanks for Bob M for the pointer to this accessory!

Cheers,
-jd.

door latch

Dave at Airstream Customer Relations couldn't care less about the price of the door latch. Yes I called them too see why the high price.

Latch

Flush latch installation comments.

The latch shipped with 2 black plastic spring bolts. Select the one with the round hole in the diagonal cut end (that is the one AS uses). The other one has a slot with a round hole inside.

The plastic spring bolt is a little larger than the metal one I removed. I removed the strike plate and used a file to enlarge it a bit. I also used a Dremel Tool to remove a little of the material inside the strike opening in the door jam.

The latch set has 2 soft silicone rubber bumpers on each side. The AS factory installed unit I looked at had the bumpers removed from the bathroom side of the door. I cut them to about 1/2 the original thickness and that worked fine.

Good luck, it is a great improvement.

Bob

New latch thread

Thanks for the install tips, Bob M; I plan to put them to good use when my latch arrives.

In the interest of not hijacking this thread (more than I already have) I started this new thread to document just the latch stuff. Plus, it should be easier/more obvious for others to notice it with a more specific title and all.

Cheers,
-jd.

Thumbs up Flush door mechanisms

jd & others interested -- This is a good remodel/replacement topic that deserves its own thread. I will copy out appropriate posts and make them into their own thread when I get a chance.

2008 Safari Under Cabinet Lights

Anyone know where these might be available - other than thru Airstream? Who makes them and what is the Model #? I've done a Internet search for 12V lighting but can't come up with any that look like these. Thanks.

These are close but not nearly as cool and nice. The inner circle and clear dome really gives off a lot of light. We had something similar in the Thor Hi-Lo. Perhaps it is a Thor part rather than Airstream. Wonder if a Thor dealer of other RVs might be able to help ???

This one is all white Save at RV Partscenter - RV Parts and Supply

It looks like they are calling it an optic magnifying lens if you are searching.

It's hard to tell from the tiny picture, but the "Command Omega Interior Dome Light" (double) from Incandescent Lights, Utility Lights, Cargo Lights, Battery Operated Incandescent Lights from Command Electronics might be pretty close.

The description says:
  • Model: 001-902XP
  • Double White Light with Push Button Switch
  • 11 3/8" x 5 3/4" x 1 11/16"
  • $22.92

I'm ambivalent about replacing mine, expecially in the bath, with another plastic one like this, though. I have problems with both fixtures keeping the lenses in place.

Also, I think a dual light fixture ought to have a 3-position switch so I can have one on, both on, all off...

Cheers,
-jd.

Thanks for the info. Nice to know I'm not the only one that the bathroom light lenses won't stay in. Twice I've had lenses fall out in the middle of the night and into the sink when I was asleep. That'll get you up quick. When installed on the curved roof in the bathroom guess they warped the frames enough that they won't hold the lenses. I'm also leary of replacing these with another plastic frame fixture and like you I would like to have the option of one or two bulbs on in the dual fixtures.

Have been looking at the axle rating on the new sport. It looks as though the wt. would be maxed out with opts. such as: air, awning and microwave. (200)lb.If you add fuels and water perhaps (190)lb. or so. The axel is rated at 4000 lb. and the dry wt. at 3500. I asked the salesman and he said the opt. are part of dry wt. I don't think so. Also it looked to me as though you could order an axle that could carry 4500. Does any one know anything about this.

Airperson, the Sport can be ordered with a "Canadian" axle. Apparently Canada has higher standards for axle safety because people will inevitably overload this model. The dealer may not know it, so make them call Airstream. You're right, the Sport can't carry much cargo and is basically for weekends.

So Uluwene, how do you like your 20 footer so far? You have owned it for almost 2 years. How do you like the bed? Have you used your rig often? What about towing it? I would like to buy one this size I think. Any information is appreciated.
Thanks for the response.
