A couple of 'CrabHawks', crab snares & a spool full of 50 lbs test braided line for the saltwater reel...

OOPs...thats for us when we haul our AS over to the coast near Bodega Bay soon...

In case the Dungeness Crabs aren't grabbing our snares, we'll make up batch of Yakitori to grill over the coals to keep us mellow along with our jug of Cali Merlow...

Got a lazy man's sewer valve repair kit today and some of my favorite rivets. These have the 5/8" head and they are very strong. A must have for trying to rivet ABS to anything and great for many repairs.

Large head Aluminum Rivet ABL68A [ABL68A] - $0.29 : Out-of-Doors Mart!, More Airstream Parts on-line than anyone!

Peter, I've been looking for those rivets forever and couldn't locate them. I thought I had checked Out Of Doors Mart but apparently I missed them.

Thanks for posting!

The Classic trailers have a rear pullout tray. I installed our two water filters and water softener in the tray. I installed eye-bolts and secured the filters and water softener with bunge cords. A 1 1/2 to 2 inch diameter hole was cut out from the bottom of the tray (towards the back of the trailer where the tray is angled) for the intake and outake hoses. This has worked very well. I can't show any pictures as the trailer is currently in storage.

This allows for quick connect and disconnect of our water filtration and softener system.

We were using our rear tray for storage of fresh water items ( hoses, filters. water softener, etc.) anyway.

We bought a brand-new toilet, a Thetford Aqua Magic V, high version, in white, with handle (as opposed to floor pedal) flush.

It will be April before we get out to Henri to install it, but it is a welcome addition. It replaces an Aqua Magic IV, which had the foot pedal. One might think that the foot pedal is more convenient, but it was the downfall of ours: it rusted out completely. The parts would have been about $60 including shipping and taxes, so we said forget it, and bought new.

Our daughter has a Thetford with the handle flush, and it is no more inconvenient that the foot flush was. Plus, it gives a cleaner simpler look.

Shari,
I bet you are excited to have a place to house your treasures. My "Pole barn" is about 25'x35' and sits right in front of my shop. It' been awesome to have a place like that for my Airstreams.

We bought a new memory foam mattress pad from Costco and cut it up and took a nap on this bad boy. Comfy!
