Wonder how many of us were wearing the same PJs at the Canopener. We should have had a fashion show!

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.
Could you post a picture of your cabinet? We want to get rid of that weird cushion, too.

Bought an adapter from Skatiero at the Canopener last weekend. Love having the running lights on while we're camping!

I'm guessing the top one is "Arse Trim" abbreviated/

Am I right? The second must be for this device:

It imitates the sounds from a trimmed arse.

Watch out for too-smart old retired guys, BA, the places you'll go are full of them.

6' center folding table by Lifetime.

I've been watching one on eBay. It's at $63 with free shipping. I got the same thing at Lowe's for a little under $50. CHA CHING!!!!

It's very compact. I'm looking forward to all the stories that will be told around this table.

Ours came from Walmart several years ago. It was a gift, so I'm not sure of the price. I think it was about $40 then.

Talking New kitchen curtain!

I got all the little things I bought from VTS, and then the blackout curtains I ordered for the front windows.... so I spent the evening sewing, and mostly finished the curtain for the kitchen. I realized since you could see it from the outside, I want a piece of fabric for that side too, so you will see the same print upon looking in (so that is now on order too for all of the 'side' windows kitchen and single bed area). I may end up doing the same thing for the front windows, but the fabric is pricey... so that may wait. From VTS I now have the sealant, screen door catch, some rubber seals, so I can work on it. The biggest challenge was getting it home from where it was stored for a little while, but now it's in the driveway.

Here is my new kitchen curtain!




Question for others: My awning is in pretty good shape with ONE huge exception. ALL of the thread has come out of every seam. Any suggestions on the best way to re-sew that back together? BY hand seems tragically slow.... is the awning easy to remove and replace? so i can machine sew it?

Easy is a relative term when it comes to those long awnings. It definately is a 2 person job and extreme caution must be exercised since the spring in the tube is under load. It needs to be carefully unwound. Instruction are on the zipdee website.

You would save yourself a bundle if the fabric is still in good shape. Last time a priced a replacement fabric of your size it was close to $1000
