New Costco Bionair (39.00)oscillating 750/1000watt space heater and fan. Clean ceramic technology. Digital Thermostat, setback timer, tip over sensor, auto on and wireless remote control for all the above !

Way quieter, slicker controls, many times the heating speed than rooftop Dometic strip heater. Warming up cabin in 5 min vs 30 to the roof top = nice.

My used trailer came with a King Jack antenna and it works quite well!

Inexpensive classic Bialetti 3-cup Moka Pot, made in Italy, so we can brew espresso on the propane stove while camping.

Quick note on the Moka Pot. Makes excellent coffee, but this 3 (espresso) cup size is barely big enough for 2 people. It makes 3 little espresso shots (just right for a single grande Americano). If you like more espresso per person, the 6-cupper may be a better size. Oh, and because you need to use low heat for best results, it takes almost as long to make espresso with this pot as it takes to make coffee on the stove with our old reliable stainless steel drip pot. Still, both make delicious coffee, require no electricity, and the only waste is coffee grounds - no pods and no paper, so nothing but decomposing grounds go into the landfill.

Merry Xmas - reading thru this thread I did not see where these pads could be ordered from. The rear storage top would be awesome as it gets very hot to the touch in the summer. Is there a website or contact information?

I have the same moka pot, and also a stovetop stainless percoclator.

I use the moka pot to make an easy strong small cup of coffee for 1 or 2. I use the percolator to make a larger pot.

I think the moka is the easier to clean up between the 2, since the grounds release easier and are physically contained under the gasket in a nice dry clump just like in an espresso machine.

When I use the percolator I tend to line it with a paper filter to make cleanup use less water.

Both are great, and make good, easy, and HOT coffee.

We just got our 16 Sport a few weeks ago and have been slowly getting it together. We just installed our Alohomora key holder on the side of the upper cabinet in the galley and a mount for our PlayStation 4 above the TV mount in the bedroom.

Looks great! Be advised that the PS4, like many consoles, gobbles data for breakfast. If you hook it up to a router that gets bandwidth via a limited Cell Data plan, be prepared for some rather nasty surprises.

Trumpetguy, please tell us how the Weboost 4G works for you and where you installed it (in the tow vehicle or trailer?).

My wonderful wife bought me the airstream Swiss army knife for Christmas. Apparently buying it and getting it to Canada was quite a challenge.
