Ian Poulan limited his choice of Airstreams to those which had sliding doors on the inside cabinets.

Perhaps you could get some "soft close" spring loaded hinges for your upper cabinets so that if you dont HOLD them open they'll gradually close themselves. The technology is also used with toilet seats if you tend to be the type of person who forgets to put that down and it results in trauma to the women and children in your family.

I'm envisioning this "technology" as promoting a race between the male user and the toilet seat to see who gets done first, which might also promote trauma to the user if the toilet seat wins.

My ex brother in law walked into back window of my 62 AS that had metal around glass, we had to take to hospital with injury. I have never ran into windows but I have hit top of door frame to many times to count, all resulting in much loss of skin [no hair to cushion]. The 76 AS does not have padding on door frame.

This is a great idea, but I can't seem to find these streamers on suction cups. We could obviously buy streamers and suction cups separately, but if you have a link for the combined product please do share it.

I think the 50's and early 60's are the worst ones to hit. I split my nose right between my eyes. Almost knocked me to the ground. Blood was everywhere and it would have been worse if not for my glasses that took most of the blow. The darn rear window is lower than the others and it got me.

Pool noodles !

I have a set of traffic cones. It looks silly, but when you are genetically clumsy like me, you do stuff like that. I've been known to pull open a kitchen cabinet door and hit myself in the face...😬

The razor sharp stove hood corner has bitten us both!!! It was so traumatic ( required a band aid, fer heaven sake!!!) that The Little Woman and I will probably never go near it again. But the man-killer hitch on the truck remains a weapon of mass destruction.

I got the orthopod to shorten my legs. Took a good seven inches off.

No worries now, what?

How do you avoid walking into an open window?

Or alternatively, you could block up the AS 7" on all sides, plus whatever you needed to balance the thing, and add a pullman type removable step so people wouldn't strain themselves getting in or fall and injure themselves getting out. Of course, it might be too late to consider this alternative now. Probably easier to take seven inches off than to put it back on.

Blue bandanas

We carry blue farmer bandanas and clothes pins and simply clip them on window glass protrusions when parked....an old Missouri remedy
