I'd say it weighs less than 5lbs. I rearranged items in the closet. If I place it on the shelf, it would hinder the ability to work on the mechanics inside the shelf. I plan on mounting it to the front side of the shelf in the closet. I'll post pics later.

Exploring Yosemite was one of my wife and my favorite activities when we were first dating, and ultimately we eloped and got married in Yosemite Chapel in Yosemite Valley. Hiking Half Dome and other landmarks there helped me (largely) overcome a lifelong fear of heights and push my limits. So when my wife and I decided we wanted to cover the window guards of our 2015 EB with a mountainscape like the Victorinox special edition, we chose this photo of Half Dome, which we took from the approach to North Dome across the way.

Nice! How much does the 1/2 done appliqué obstruct your ability to see out from the inside?

Looks fully done from here, and looks really nice. Would be fun to see a photo looking out from the inside.

Thanks all. From the inside looking out, only the dot pattern is visible, not the image itself, and I'd say it cuts down the light coming in by about 30%, above and beyond the already reduced light from the tinted plexiglass. Joe

I so agree... Living in hot climates, it's awesome to be able to run the ACs during load-in and load-out of the RV. 50 amp power at the house, for the coach, is an awesome upgrade to the RV.

You might laugh, but when we remodeled we spent money on Egyptian cotton white towels and white bedsheets and plush comforter. We had the idea to make the Airstream feel like a plush luxury hotel room.

After a year of full-timing with kids, our towels and sheets just looked gross. Even our light colored floor needs cleaned like every other day.

Truth is, camping is dirty and dirt comes inside and kids compound it.

Nice! And a smart choice. We went with black towels when outfitting the trailer... Now moved over to the coach.

Not what I got for my camper, BUT it gave me something yesterday. I was removing the carpet tack strip in my 1975 Argosy and this Penny was under it.nYep, it's a 1975 penny that was heads up! Will put it back when I put the new floor down.

Sort of like the sailor's tradition of putting a few coins under the base of the mast for good luck...
