Thanks! We bought it online at teakworks4u

https://www.teakworks4u.com/products...nt=34818363150

This is a standard item they offer for AS 27FB trailers. The mat fits perfectly. We didn't have to make any modifications since we have a 27FB. They do offer a few other standard shower footprints for other AS's. Otherwise they can custom make one for you.

Good luck and happy travels!

If you order one for your Classic let me know when you get it and that it fits. Then I have a shortcut when I order mine...

My wife also doesn't like to use her knives on synthetic surfaces. I got an idea stemmed from a fellow Airstreamer on another thread that bored out a 5" hole where the existing finger hole is to allow the faucet water to drain into the sink. My wife was skeptical with my idea at first until I made a cardboard mockup. She liked the idea. This is what I came up with...
Attachment 295132

She loves having more counter space. She especially enjoys that she has a work surface that won't scratch up the counter. She's reluctant placing anything on the counter without protection. Loves that she can access the sink and use the faucet.

Put non-slip pads under the board and fits nicely up against the sink if we need full access to the sink!
Attachment 295133

We had this cover in storage from day one and feels good to re-purpose it. It's funky but it works for us!


What did you use to cut the board? I don't want to melt the board or end up with a rough cut trying to figure out the technique. Thanks.

I used a 2 speed jig saw, set on low speed with a 10 tooth/inch blade.

I made a quick circle cutting jig to guide the saw to cut the radius.

It's important to use two screws to secure the jig saw base down to the circle cutting jig.

I had to make a pivot point for the jig. I used a flat washer and a screw to attach to a scrap wood board. This whole assembly is attached through the existing finger hole.

Attach a screw underneath so the point of the screw is upwards to use as a pivot point. Be sure this screw is 9" from the blade to create the radius. This screw goes through the pivot hole point of the jig. ***I would suggest using a countersunk screw not the pan head screw I used in the picture so that the jig will slide smoother while cutting the radius.

Practice a dry run with no blade in the saw. Once you start the actual cut, don't stop. You're committed!

There was no need to sand any edges. Just used a utility knife to remove any saw kerf shavings. That's it! It's that easy! Now this is classified information that will cost you one beer if we ever meet!

Thank you very much for the detailed instructions. I just need to find the time to do it.

Nice wine selection and nice bar. I always say, "just because you are camping doesn't mean you can't be civilized.

Built Little Girl a shelter to help protect her from hail and snow load. She was parked in her home Sunday after coming home from a rally.

Used a huge beam on the side so we can open the patio awning to dry after a camping trip. Came in handy since the awning was rolled up wet during our rally. Inside the shelter is wide enough that we can open the window awning too.

One of these new fangled tow vehicles. Our old TV was 11 years old, and reliable, but could not pass up the good deal.

Very pretty (and I'm sure it has lots of performance features too). Linda H

Big learning curve on all the options. The engine is a beast.
