Christmas decorating

Ok I did a few searches but I don't see any threads on this topic. I know I have seen some great pics of Airstreams all festooned with Christmas lights somewhere. I would like to see them here if anyone is willing to share. Looking for ideas for my little Sport. Anyone have recommendations for reasonably priced led types. Also, what is the best way to attach them to the Stream with minimal damage?

Deck the halls...er..Streams!

Wow, lots of views, but no responses so far! Everyone busy with black, red, gray Friday, Thursday, Saturday, Monday, I suppose.

Well, I will start then. Here's a google search find. Simple, iconic (as Airstreams always are).

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Looks beautiful!

We are always at home for the holidays, so never do any decorating for the storage space.

Really love the lights reflecting off the aluminum.

Sounds perfect. Do you have a pic of your Stream with the lights on it?

Xmas AS

Hi Rich,

We are heading up to Lone Pine to spend our first Christmas in our new 2013 Sport 16.

We purchased a very cool 18" Christmas tree that has lights and ornaments for the front dinette and a wreath w/ lights using batteries for the door using a 3M adhesive hook (easy to remove without damage to the metal surface) which we purchased at Wallgreens. Red chili pepper lights we purchased from Arizona Hwys catalog to hang on the awning.

We bought some clips from Camping World to attach them to the awning.

We'll post photos when we get back.

Found some lights at Costco! And some silver duct tape did the trick!

Airstream Awning String Lights

Does anyone know where to purchase these lights? I would like to get several to give as Christmas gifts but have only found one set on Ebay. I have done a web search, looked at the Lowe's, Home Depot, and Menard's but have had no luck.

Thanks for any help.
