Congratulations on your new purchase! I can't blame everyone for wanting a block party centered around your new baby! Looks like a great place for it! Have fun and safe travels!

Awesome.

Reminds me of The Bridges of Madison County.

Believe it or not, there is no link! It's a family owned Amish company, here are the details.

Tell Vern that you talked to me.

They have a couple sizes, plus a love seat. The smallest size chairs work well in the AS.

Good luck, let me know how it goes.

I tried to get a latch/catch for one of the drawers under the dinette. It can't wait until our September service center appointment. You can't buy it from Airstream unless you are there. You have to buy it from a dealer even though the dealers are 4-5 hours away and it would be FedEx-ed anyway- probably from Airstream but purchased through a dealer.
OK. Well. It should be warranty because it is a 2013.

All I get is an opportunity to leave s voice mail.

We have the Sleep Number RV radius cut bed too. Love it. Just need to remember to deflate it prior to dropping in elevation :-). Purchased from Camping World.com website during a sale.

Also did the Lambright Comfort Chairs: 260-768-4821

I'd like to ask about those chairs -- why have all of you chosen those particular chairs? Just wondering.......is it the comfort; are they a bit lighter in weight than others; how do you anchor them to the floor for traveling?

As you might wonder, we have talked about doing this someday.

Thanks.

Deb

This is a bit in reverse, so not really within this thread's topic, but we need a new peizo (sp) and knob for our '99's cooktop (we have an oven below). Where is the best place to purchase one?

Thanks.

Deb

New Sink Cover/Chopping Block

I just finished our new Sink Cover/Chopping Block in time for our maiden voyage. I did not like the plastic one that came with our new 2014 19' Flying Cloud so I put together some Cherry and Claro (Black) Walnut and made one. It is finished in walnut oil to seal it and has an inner lip to fit snugly into the sink. Maybe I can go into production???

We chose the Villa Recliners because they are the same ones used by Airstream in their newer 30' model with recliner option. The are scaled nicely to the space under the pano windows, sit high enough to view out the windows perfectly, can swivel within that space, have leather seating surfaces, have four color choices to coordinate with late model Airstreams, have a lever to raise/lower the leg rest so there is no ottoman on the floor, have sturdy steel frame construction, and are very comfortable. We have been on the road six months using them every day. You can Google Villa Recliners to find a few sources for about $750 each.

They are not fastened to the floor. They have a series of nylon glides around the bottom that hold them in place when towing, but slide easily to pull them out to a full reclining position.

We did try our Ekornes recliners from home at first but they look tiny in that space, and sit too low for the windows, and they need ottomans.
