What’s the STUPIDEST thing you have ever done pertaining to Airstream

I’ll go FIRST......

I told my wife that the 3” lift I just added to our Airstream....
“WAS THE LAST UPGRADE”

She now thinks I am finished tinkering.....

What Ronnie said in Post 1,three mods ago. And backing into a rock in the front yard and denting the rear bumper by thinking I could gently push it out of the way....

Mounting a DC generator under the trailer (in the spare tire well) to charge my batteries.

Well, I have made so many stupid mistakes while rebuilding my trailer over the years, that I have named it "The Err-stream."

BUT...the #1 biggest mistake I made, and the one I see people make all of the time, is I bought a vintage "project" trailer without knowing thoroughly what I was getting myself into, and my expectations for a quick fix-up have been severely calibrated as a result!

Buying one to restore instead of buying one gently used.

Ferried to the Outer Banks to boondock on the shore 'away from it all'...had miles of beach all to ourselves....setup everything, enjoyed supper, went to bed, woke up at 3AM to strange noises, opened the door to find I'd totally forgotten high tide!. We had waves slapping the side. I panicked thinking we were permanently stuck in the ocean with no help around. Thank goodness I'd parked my 4x4 up the shoreline and was just able to pull us to drier sand.
Tides....duuuh....
