So nothing tool worthy or exciting but in the cute factor:

A small suction cup clock from bed bath and body. Thanks TB&G for the recommendation.

A small garden stake with flag for our camp spot

A super cute artistic trailer for in the house maybe.

Received our Maxim skylight yesterday and installed it too. Much, much better than the OEM one. More details on the "Step by step: Replacing OEM skylights . . ." thread.

Finished cutting and fitting the brand new belly pan. Now to remove Clecos and replace them with rivets.
It sure is pretty.

Picked up some new parts for the old Safari,
A water heater, converter and a blue boy.

The tote fits perfectly behind the propane tanks.

If you don't have one already, I strongly recommend the fitting that fits on the trailer where you hook up the stinky slinky hose, and has a small hole on it that lets you screw on a standard garden hose. Then attach a 10 foot hose. We used this when we used our blueboy in Yellowstone. FOR GRAYWATER USE! We then placed the blueboy about 8 feet on the downhill from the gate valve/connection point on the trailer. Super easy and no mess to empty the gray water into the blue boy. We also found that by wrapping a strap in a double loop (I used an extra ratchet tie down strap I had on hand) on the blue boy on the side opposite the handle, that this made it much easier for 2 people to lift. (We have the 12 gallon size). We further discovered that if we only let it fill full before emptying that it was light enough that we could just dump into the dishwashing sink at the campground (GRAYWATER ONLY). In fact it was so easy that we would just both shower and then just empty it right away so the water was "fresh" into the gray tank.

Not what I got but what I need.
We are using old disposable salt and pepper shakers. The rounds with the twist thingy on top. We have to keep them in a zip lock bag because they leak. I have seen several different sets while on trips but I always get shot down by the wife because they won't stay sitting up or they are glass they will break or they don't look nice or any number of other reasons. Anyone have any recommendations that might pass muster for travel in an Airstream.
Please lets not get into the merits of sea salt over regular old iodized salt or red pepper versus black pepper or fresh ground over store bought or any of the other virtues of salt and pepper.
Lets try to keep this on track about the style of shakers that travel good, don't fall over easily and are durable and my wife would like cute thrown in there also.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Hickory

Air Tight Salt & Pepper Shakers

Hickory,
I have one of these vintage Daniells Hinged Salt Shakers that I picked up at a thrift store for a few dollars. If you like retro and the fact that these really work you can't go wrong. These are no longer made but can be found on ebay, thrift stores.
www.ebay.com/itm/DANIELLS-Hinged-Salt-Pepper-Shakers-1950s-Diner-Style-RETRO-Diamond-Glass-/122148915099?hash=item1c70a4879b:g:cBgAAOSwFV9X0JM C[/url]

These are glass, but I have never had a problem with it.

What did you get for your Trailer today?

I have a very old set of lids that go on black plastic Kodak 35mm film canisters. They are clear with s smaller snap-down cap over the shaker. No clue as to where you would find the lids or the canisters nowadays. Try looking at REI, BassPro or some other camping store.

Darn, now I'm making me feel old...got those when the first kid was in Boy Scouts.

Mounted antennas to get 4G LTE signals into the trailer and WiFi LAN signals out for use around the campsite.

Wired and installed a 3-socket 12V outlet in the cabinet above the dinette. They will power a booster and a LTE/WiFi router, which I already have in waiting.

Antenna cables (LMR400 flex) arrived today. Next huge step is to decide exactly how I'm going to route the cables and then do that, bringing them inside to start hooking things up.

I'll post pictures and such when the job is done and working.
