We bought blinds. Not that we are that close to finishing our redo 73 Excella , but we liked them and thought might as well get them now and add them to our growing pile of stuff we have bought!!!

Mr Bauer, has a new home and friend, my Landy. - I stopped to pick up a sweet tea and fries and as I walked back out - I was sorta shocked.. dang he's a big boy and makes Landy look tiny, it didn't feel 'that big' pulling it.. but they both did very well on the 600 mile drive journey home yesterday. .

The landy enjoyed the tow...but worked more the she's used to, so she punished me by only returning 11mpg. No bad considering my usual mpg is 18-19.

Sink Cover Cutting Board and Table

I finally made our own sink cover cutting board and made a similar flip-up counter table extension (25' FC). Solid hardwoods of walnut, cherry and spalted maple. I think it goes great with the Flying Cloud interior. See AirstreamLife Store. Sorry for the rotated photos....What do you think?

Wow! Thats a plush look. The opening is nice to still be able to use the faucet even when the cover is in place. Wife's been wanting me to make something like that too. She wants a cut out like that to place a small colander into so she can still use faucet but also act as a "garbage can" for food prep waste. Love the walnut. Nice job!

Installed a Dometic ventilation fan kit for refrigerator and added insulation inside behind refrigerator. Made a huge difference on how fast the refrigerator started cooling...especially testing it out with our 109* day.Well worth the two day install.

Installed the Fan-tastic fan upgrade kit (803359) that provides intake and exhaust capability on the front and rear fans. Took about 30 minutes total to install both upgrades. Well worth the effort.

I have been reading the thread for years now. Seems pretty obvious to me that our Airstream gets what it needs and wants. Some of us coddle it with frills because we love IT! My list of these gifts as I call them number in the double to triple digits. That's what keeps the economy churning!!

Wheel locks. While doing a wheel maintenance check, discovered a lug nut's chrome cover cap was bent. Been wanting to do this awhile, so I took advantage of the opportunity...told the wife about the "emergency".She said, "get thee to the auto store!" Bless her heart!

You may be interested in a table top fire pit but the table needs an umbrella hole for the propane fitting and hose to fit through. Our state has a strict "open fire" season so this is our solution. We bought a wooden folding picnic table (overstock.com) that has an umbrella hole in it. Our fire pit is rectangular with glass fire rocks and glass sides but there are many other styles. The table can open up half way to create a "coffee table", set up the fire pit and we set up our chairs around it. It's a nice cozy way to enjoy the fire.
