Had a box made to mount under the trailer behind the wheels. It's about 6" deep, 4' wide and runs the width of the camper. Rolls out on the service side of the trailer. Sweet, sweet, sweet! My husband has more rooms for his tools and I'll have more room inside! We also had a receiver mounted to bumper to carry a rack for generator, bike, whatever! Getting ready for our trip!

It was reinforced - so my husband believes you can tow a vehicle with it.

Laura,

It is generally believed, based on experience, these modifications will destroy your new Airstream. I haven't read the warranty in this regard but the damage will probably be excluded. Check with Airstream on these modifications before you use them.

The chairs are very comfortable...


Larry
Was trying to find a link for the company with the chairs....would you mind providing a bit more information? Is that the manufacturer and did you purchase directly from them? Looks like they incorporate the footrest which would be a real plus. Great conversion and work, thanks for sharing it.

A new place to park....

This is our first AS, and after a 2500 mi delivery from NJ to PHX, it seems very content with its new spot. The neighbors don't mind it because it is an AS. In fact not more than 3 hours after getting it home an impromptu block party popped up around it.
