Some people say a man is made outta mud
A poor man's made outta muscle and blood
Muscle and blood ad skin and bone
A mind that's week and a back that's strong

Just bought a Dyson DC59 cordless vacuum, on sale 54% off Amazon just for the day, so it came to $229.95.

It's a refurbished unit but from experience their refurbished units are like new.

Had a 13.5 Dometic AC installed as well as three exhaust vent max air covers. Thermostat gas control also put in. Cool air and hot water! Jim

No, we are just going to deploy it by pulling down the arms. Seems to work okay. Thanks for asking. Jim

Maybe under the bed.
Is that the smallest version?

I would not be so fast to jump on the Tesla bandwagon. Issues are starting to come up in independent testing. Issues with charge rates and number of times the packs can be recharged. I believe the concept is the power storage source of the future, but not quite yet. Currently I believe that they have to be leased along with all the rest of the system. Potential for long term saving is high according to Tesla and prices are expected to come down as the technology is further developed.

Wonderful, epic thread! Great way to come up with more ways to increase the cost of Airstreaming! Many good ideas, though!

OK, installed a Fantastic Vent "Ultra Breeze" cover. It is big but has a purpose.

Those prices are only for the unit. You may need batteries, panels, etc.....
