The original aluminum stove side splash was attached to the wall with double sided tape. The 115 degree Arizona heat softened the adhesive and it slid down the wall beside the stove. We will get it out next month when installing a new Dometic CU-434 stove.

We replaced that aluminum panel with a piece of magnetic stainless steel and screwed it to the wall and trimmed it with hickory.

The lighting created the illusion of a different colored wall in the bathroom, but it has the funky wall paper.

When the trailer was built, we did have the factory put a bare aluminum panel behind the bathroom sink instead of the wall fuzz and install different stock flooring on a change order.

Unfortunately that change order never made it to the floor, so the bathroom and shower has to be removed (when I showed them the approved by the VP of Production change order) to remove the stock flooring and install the ordered linoleum from the International Serenity which we liked better.

The installation was not done properly and we replaced the whole flooring when we had most of the furniture out doing the custom work. We used Marmoleum Vivace.

Our 2015 23D International Serenity dinette leg wore a hole in the extremely thin flooring in less than 2,000 miles. So while the interior was out for the modifications, we replaced it with Marmoleum.

We did put a brass wear plate under the dinette legs of both the Classic and 23D.

There isn't mouse fur behind the bathroom sink originally.
There is more of the funky parchment looking wallpaper and an unbefugly cheap looking wallpaper border.
We had Jackson Center install an aluminum backslpash there, too.
My sidesplash in the kitchen fell off the wall and slid down beside the cooktop, too.
It was repaired at Jackson Center.
We haven't had the table leg rub through the fake hardwood floor looking roll vinyl flooring.
I just watched a Loloho video where they painted the funky wallpaper.
I am considering that option.
If I were ever to renovate this trailer I would delete the mouse fur and padded white vinyl headliner material in favor of aluminum skin walls and ceiling. I would prefer more hickory wood under the locker above the couch rather than the white vinyl headliner material. I would prefer more hickory wood at the end of the locker by the entry door. Also, I would prefer brown leather on the couch and dinette benches.
It seems funny to want to renovate a relatively new trailer that is still in as new condition, but I like what I like...

I like it.
I want to polish my wheel well trim now.
I got more camping reservations, a new jack on the way and a plug in voltage meter on the way.

Your trailer will be louder inside when talking or when it is raining. These soft surfaces work as a slight insulation barrier from the heat/cold. I had an two older trailers without the interior treatments and I felt there was quite a difference.

Our 2008 Sport has mouse fur, and a rally-buddy has a 2014 model. I didn't care for it but that's what ours had already.
They visited and remarked how they wish they had mouse fur instead of aluminum walls because of that very reason...insulation and noise.

What'd I get for the trailer today..??? Axle lift kit, aux. lpg quick connect, new tires, ...)

Just installed the Husky 82022 Super Brute Electric Jack with Remote Control - 5000 lb. Capacity, and I love it. Attwod was struggling to lift setup for WD bars. Mounted the circuit breaker on side of battery box. Nice and much quieter than Arrwood.

That is a sweet-looking jack. Can you turn the power head so a truck's tailgate will clear the jack? We like that feature of the Barker, though this jack looks better overall.

Any way you could post a photo of your new jack installed on your AS? Thanks

Clock

We have been looking for a wall clock for our Bambi for a couple of years now. We have looked a LOT of clocks, but they are always too big in proportion and would be "overwhelming" in most trailers, and especially in a Bambi. Yesterday we had SUCCESS!

We found a InterDesign Suction Clock. It's round, 4" wide and about 1.5" deep. It has a brushed stainless steel casing with a clear plastic "crystal"...and is water resistant.

It's battery operated...a single AAA (included). It has 5 suction cups on the back that stick to the aluminum interior walls of the Bambi like octopus suckers, even without moistening them. We have not traveled with it yet, but I'll be VERY surprised if it doesn't hold. It's easily removed to relocate if needed. (Use both hands on opposite sides...it sits away from the wall far enough to get your finger tips under the casing so that it comes off without coming into contact with the aluminum walls.) It left no marks on the aluminum. It will not stick to painted surfaces or laminates. (I tried. The packaging says it's good for glass/mirror, steel, tile and fiber glass.)

We got it at Bed Bath & Beyond for $14.99 + tax for a total of $16.20. We found it in the bathroom dept...I think it's actually intended for use in a shower or bathroom (therefore it's diminutive size). We checked online and found it on Amazon for a little less (probably the best price if you have Prime and don't pay shipping). It was $12.99 on BB&Beyond online but with $5.99 shipping (+ tax, potentially) it was more than buying it locally and paying local sales tax. We also found it priced as high as $46.

We are pretty happy with it! You know how we are all drawn to anything silver. And the price is definitely right.

Here are some pics, including the packaging:

So this is what happens when you leave two Airstreams alone in the driveway and go on a road trip.

They make a 3rd one?

This could also be the definition of insanity!
