We are having a custom cabinet built on the left side of the dinette similar to those in the Classic trailers to store a couple of ZipDee chairs that will have matching fabric to our awnings. The cabinet front, side behind the dinette pillow, counter top and door handle will match the materials used by Airstream when the built our Serenity in June 2012.

We can get rid of a bulky odd shaped Airstream pillow that makes that side of the dinette an uncomfortable place to sit. The dinette sleeping space will not be negatively impacted. And we will some more hard flat space to put things on since the kitchen counter top space is limited.

We are also going to retrofit a Maxim skylight in lieu of the original one from Airstream. We are leaning towards Bronze, clear, clear for the three layers. We will still have the pull across Airstream skylight curtain.

New AXLES!

Here's the before (the first picture) - then the after picture - not that much difference in height as some have posted when they've replaced axles - only a couple of inches at the hitch height.

But, as they say on that restaurant show, "THERE. That's done."

Much heavier, but the electric start is worth the effort to load it at the beginning of the season... then we leave it in the truck bed under a topper / canopy. Wheel kit makes it move very easily ... and dare I say that my wife has also "authorized" (two trucks ago) a slide out for the bed (used it to diagonally mount/haul a small helo for aerial photography).

Best west TX summer accessory ever - a portable induction cooktop! Cooks quick but more importantly it doesn't also cook us inside the trailer like the propane stove does in the TX heat. Tried one last year, bought one this year & only $89!

We got new tires, wheels, and center hubs for the trailer. The center hubs were plain, so I decorated them with blue vinyl saying "Airstream69".
