I love the lazy Susan idea, especially in the front bedroom area

Camping Update and Shoe Storage

Hello Friends!

I'm reporting that we did spend two nights in the driveway in the trailer over our weekend. It was hilarious to watch us 'camping' - when we realized we needed something we just went into the house to get it. Other than making coffee and tea, I also did the cooking in the house.

Everything worked well in the trailer - the second night was quite hot so we ran the A/C all night - this confirmed what we already knew - we don't like camping when it's hot. The noise of the air running was disturbing to our sleep. Other than that, it was a blast!

Yesterday my helper and I spent hours scrubbing every inch of the outside of the trailer and I want to tell you, that Airstream is shining like a brand new nickel!

SHOE STORAGE
Brian and I did one small project. The problem was shoes gathering at the door. We removed the drawer and hardware just inside the door (under the dinette seat). We just happened to have a Sterilite Tote that fits exactly in the space between the bench supports (the U shaped legs) - The tote will easily hold at least 4 pairs of shoes. I still need to put dividers in the tote. Note: the tote is WAY bigger than that little drawer!

Besides the dividers in the tote, I need to fill in the approx. 1" between the floor and top of the U brackets so the tote slides in and out easily.

This is an A+++ upgrade - shoes scattered around the door drives me crazy!

Hello everyone!

We've decided that we prefer the dinette set down like a bed. We've put an assortment of pillows around the wall edge - used the lazy boy back jack to make a suspended table.....this is totally working for us! I'll post a picture later.

As well, I've ordered another lazy susan tray for 4 more shelves. Pictures coming.

Are you kidding me that it was October the last time I posted here???


We survived the winter! Once Spring arrives for real, we'll be hauling the trailer over here and work will commence again!


I can't wait!!!


Happy Spring Everyone!

Liz and Brian,
Its a cool and wet day here in Fort Smith, Arkansas so I have had time to read and enjoy all five pages of your posts. Liz you have some great ideas!
We have a 25ft 2008 Safari. We bought It new and have really enjoyed it.

The trailer is in the driveway, the fridge is cooling and we're preparing to hit the road on Monday - after we get the flat tire fixed on the trailer - it seems the valve stem is broken. The tire place is 1.5 miles away so we're traveling on one tire on that side (Thanks to the tour of The AS Factory at Jackson Center where we learned that the trailer CAN travel on one tire on a side if necessary for a short distance).

We stowed all the stuff that had been stored in totes - absolutely zero rodent evidence! Yay! The aluminum wool did the trick!

One thing we noticed is that the vinyl on the floor has a buckle in the trailer.....it's just inside the entry door and in the kitchen.....I've wanted to install cork for flooring - this might be the opportunity that I need to 'make that happen'!

Brian has a new job (finally) which has 8 hr days with weekends and holidays off (vs. working 12 hr shifts at night and working weekends and holidays) so I'm thinking we'll be able to do more outings in the trailer at last!

We hope to see you on the road! Safe travels!

We've named our Airstream The Silver Pearl this week. We're flying a Captain Jack Sparrow flag...

window leaks

Palmgirls post: "On my trailer, there were 2 or 3 minor leaks near the bottom and BOTH opening panoramic windows leaked - it seems they are not touching the gaskets! (as I suspected). "

We had the same problem. Beside tightening the window, added weep holes to prevent the window channel from filling w water and leaking into the exterior wall as it had previously. Check your floor for soft areas, especially under the lounge. We have extensive pics showing floor repairs. Took out thin vinyl and replaced w new flooring.

We have added 5 drawers to the rig and enlarged the drawer under the short bench. One at the bottom of the drawer group in br, under fridge, under lounge, under oven and under bank of drawers in kitchen. Ducts, wires and other objects were secured and areas insulated as we went. We put dividers in upper cabinets in kitchen and bath to keep in place. Added shelves to the larger closet. Added cabinet for Zip Dee chairs behind short lounge, removing bolster and cutting back bench.

We had a micro/conv under cooktop, removed and replaced w range w oven. Placed micro under TV & DVD.

Modified table for ease of use in that area.
