Steps with storage - my thinking is - avoid injury possibilities and make it easier for humans and bloodhounds to enter/exit the Airstream AND use the storage for all outdoor connections (power cable, handi-hose, levelers, etc). Place under dining table on rubber mat for travel. I loved Adonh's home made stairs but took the easy way out! :-)

Ordered the TST TPMS (internal to the tire) so my tire dealer can install with the new Michelins going on Saturday morning (you all convinced me...).

DW purchased an Ottoman I haven't seen yet but she loves it and I can't wait to see it!

If a boat is a hole in the water you throw your money in; clearly, the Airstream is a land boat.

After polishing the furnace and hot water heater doors, the range vent really looked bad...so ordered the stainless steel one from Airstream. The plastic one just didn't cut it against the polished aluminum. Also installed LED tail lights, also from Airstream, so if anyone needs a set of tail light lens covers for a 1994 or newer Classic I have them.

Last May my wife found me a 'Rock Tamers' mudflap on Craigslist for $125 or OBO. It was in Marshfield, a town about 25 miles away from here (Springfield, MO).

I called the guy up and drove up to look at them. He bought a different truck that had intregal mudflaps-- SOB 5th wheel trailer.

I offered him $100 and he threw in a Reese hitch head that he used with the rocktamers.

Then, last week, I toyed around with the idea of buying an airstream badge to put on the flaps. I saw on the Airstream website that they sold rocktamers with an Airstream badge.

I called Rocktamers to see if I could buy the badge from them-- couldn't do it, had to get it from Airstream.

I ordered them and got them and put them on my rocktamers. More flash!

LOL-- this aluminum fever, that's some fever!

Got our Excella it's very own boondocking spot located in Indian Lake, New York. Lot cleared, stone pad almost complete, next to build an outhouse. Down the road will be a pole barn with slab for covered storage and electric and town water. Then I won't call it boondocking.

Our Dyson cool/hot came today. The heat function will be pretty darn great! Cooling not so much but maybe a little help circulating a/c cold zones. Overall, pretty happy with it!

I got a remote thermometer for monitoring the temperature inside the fridge. Got it at $10.00. This is a great tool. Nice to know the temp without opening the door and nice to see how the inside temp changes when you put warm food in the fridge or the outside temperature changes.

I bought a sewer solution and 10' extension hose today online on camping world website...

And while I bought it like 2 weeks ago, arriving in the mail yesterday was a portable surge protector.

Not just any book, for Henrietta, from Wally

So I didn't get it today but recently and have been wanting to share. We bought a Vintage Book. The "Trailer Travel here and abroad" by Wally Byum. It was stamped with the previous owners info and a I did a little research.

They were Gordon and Nancy Wagner of Coshocton Ohio. They owned a supply (Orchard type) store in town, were avid Airstreams, outdoor enthusiasts, Lutherans and traveled with their friends in a group call Foretravel. They have unfortunately passed away within the last couple of years and have two daughters that still live in the area of Arlington Ohio.

I'm thinking I will write a note to their daughters to let them know their parents book is in the hands of another Airsteamer and will continue to travel.

The book was purchased from an ETSY shop called New Life Vintage RV's and owned by Laurie Glantz. She and her husband refinish small vintage trailers.
