Yes, and she does a great job on her nails using a small brush, but the surface area she is used to is an order of magnitude different when it comes to the Argosy

NO, of course not. We use Yahoo! Instant Messenger. And sometimes Fred Hinds joins us.

(Brett hasn't set up separate email on his laptop, yet!)

My bin

I have just one outside storage which is about 2/3 of the double bed in size. I carry:
grass patio mat
small BBQ grill in a bag
match-light charcoal
2 folding chairs
1 small folding table
25' curly water hose with regulator
old shower curtain for getting under if it is muddy

The only bad thing about the storage is the small opening. The long folding chair bags must be maneuvered in very carefully. This severely limits how much will fit in there.

Everything else goes under the lockable bed cover in the truck or under the back seat of the truck. The truck back seat is well organized with:
paper towel roll
hand cleaner
throwaway plastic gloves
towing mirrors when not actually towing
fitted 150+ piece toolkit
12v compressor
tire gage
inverter when not in use
electrical kit with tape, splices, crimping tool

The truck bed has two plastic baskets that hold chocks, blocks, hoses, 4-way lug wrench, and power cables. For long trips, I bungee an additional toolbox to one of the bed tiedowns with some larger tools and a variety of small parts such as screws, bolts, and nuts.

Bins

Hi John,
In the curbside bin I carry the stabilizer crank, plastic leveling blocks, one tire locking chock (need to buy one more), heavy chain for locking 40 lb. alum. tanks together but never do, and one 5 ft. piece of copper pipe for repair to water line (came with trailer). The roadside bin contains four 2X6X12" pieces of lumber for quick leveling blocks, one 25 ft. grey hose for flushing tanks and one 25 ft. 5/8" water hose with regulator on the end. I have a FlushKing inside the trailer that I have not used yet along with an adapter and a 45 degree clear sewer connection. First time I use these, they will probably go into the roadside bin and the 25 ft. water hose will be moved to the curbside bin so there isn't a chance of contamination. Plastic bins under the single twin curbside bed are empty, the long bin over the bed had one ultralight spinning reel/rod and one reel/rod for bass fishing, stripe, stuff like that. Other plastic bins across the bed are full of sheets, hunting socks, thermal underwear, etc. That's about it other than the kitchen which has two plastic drawers full of electrical wire/parts, water and gas plumbing fixtures/parts and last one drawer full of rivets and a rivet gun mixed in with several bottles of deer scent.

Thumbs up Air compressor

John,

Other than the normal stuff one carries, I also carry an Air Compressor that I got from CW. It works off of 12VDC and it inflates to 275 psi.

Prior to leaving FL, I had 65psi in my trailer tires. Then once I got into colder country and check the tire pressure in the morning prior to hitting the road, I've seen a 10 to 15 psi drop in pressure.

Also since I have a Hensley Arrow hitch, I carry a large hand-pump grease gun. I've found the smaller ones lose there prime and they also tend to leak grease too. The H/A has grease jerks that they recommend greasing every 500 miles. Which mean about every 3 days I'm greasing the hitch.



One more thing that I carry is a separate water hose for the black water tank flush. I believe it was Brett who shared a story of how one can get sick if the contents of the BWT leak back into the water hose used to flush the tank. I also keep ALL of the sewer fittings in their own container to prevent contamination.

My 2 & 1/2 cents-John

No bins

You don't even have to have a vintage Airstream t have no external storage bins. The 2003 International CCD has no external storage as well. Thank goodness for pickup beds, car trunks, etc.

bins!!!

On the 30 AS we have a small bin on the roadside under the dinette, the drop in bin in front between the a-frame, and a large bin under the double bed in the rear.

Not wanting to put additional weight behind the wheels I'm stuck with the bin under the dinette for my tools. For the last two years, I've used a softsided canvas tool box from Sears for my tools. Although it doesn't scratch and dent our trailer, I find it to be somewhat inconvenient because the tools are just thrown into the bag and as time goes on, more and more stuff is accumulated. The bag is getting heavier, and it is also beginning to wear the weather stripping on the bin. I've been looking at the "DuckWear Tool Roll" from DuluthTrading.com. Has anyone had experience with a tool roll such as this? If so, what are your thoughts? If not, what do you use?

Mark
