Our Wish List for Airstream Jefferson Center

What is your wish for your Airstream camper? 45 footer? Slideout? etc. etc.

My wish for Airstream Jefferson Center to put in a power cord retractor inside.

I wish I could add a reel for the 50 amp cable. Anaconda actually!

Also, that would be Jefferson Starship Center!

Or actually, Jackson Center, ohio.

You know they do make a power-retractable reel that would fit into an Airstream side or rear compartment. I ran into a gentleman at Alumapolosa and he had it in his catalog. I believe it was $179. Might be good for a 30 amp cable. but probably not for the 50 amp

ahhhh there is no room for the retractor in the Bambi 16 footer, but not upright. maybe wheel hangin horizonally under the floor rather than vertical anywhere inside. of course with cover similar to spare tire cover to protect the retractor from dirt and flying rocks.

A modest list

My wishes for AS are, I believe, rather modest:

1) Implement lean controls to increase the quality of the fit and finish of your trailers. Do you really want customers discovering incomplete or improper assembly, cables misrouted, loose screws, construction debris strewn about, poor caulking, etc.? Let's clean up the trailers and do it right, do it once, the first time.

2) Let's improve the product itself -- let's engineer the trailer to work in the environment for which it is intended. No more placing ammonia evaporation refrigerators in the BaseCamp in direct sunlight without adequate ventilation such that they don't work. We really should not have to point this out. No more designing trailers with suicide doors, or doors that impinge on open windows or awning arms. Let's make sure when we introduce new products like (nest) that they are not an embarrassment to the brand. Test products to failure, then fix the problems discovered. Design-Build-Test. Let's design intelligently, not lazily, or not doing it at all. Think.

3) How about putting in a sub-floor that will not rot? Other trailers have aluminum flooring. There is also a remarkable composite material called Coosa Board that is just as strong and easy to work with as plywood, but is water proof, critter proof, mold resistant, and 30% lighter than plywood! WOW! The added cost of the material is a fraction of the total cost of the trailer but would last for decades, if not longer.

4) Change the mindset of Thor from milking the Airstream brand for as much profit as possible, and focus instead on making the best TT on the market (while still making a handsome profit) and reap the rewards. In other words, be more like Apple in this regard.

If Airstream does this, it would set the standard in the domestic RV industry, become the quality leader in the market, burnish it's brand reputation, be more responsive to customer needs, innovate next generation technologies that are both useful and effective and set the company on the path to even greater success.

Skyguyscott covers the bases. I experienced the rotted floor in our old Bambi from a long term undetected leak.

I wonder, does Airstream have a Consumer Panel? With a new factory, production to ramp up, more models and employees, face-to-face feedback or input from a panel of users should be put in place. Hello? Airstream? Be a sector leader and put this in place. We have some REALLY smart owners out here!

With front placed beds, please put the wall mounted reading lights on the other side. This would put the head of the bed on the curb side, and facing the outside door. Viewing the television from bed would now be possible. Plus it creeps me out not to be able to see the outside door from the current reading light placement, behind the wardrobe closet. Convenience and safety factors are my concern.

I would love a 23FB twin with a rear hatch to carry my 2@75 lb E-Bikes, the same layout as the 25FB twin only 2 ft shorter lounge.
