Indoor/outdoor thermometer

Has anyone found an indoor/outdoor thermometer that they like, stylistically and practically, for use in an Airstream?

I finally found one on Amazon. It's from a place called Chaney Instrument.

Jammer,
We use a Taylor unit from a local store. Wireless and gives us indoor temp/humidity, outdoor temp and other data. Works for us.

We bought one from Wind and Weather. They have several models to choose from. Works great.

I am thinking about getting one of these:



Atomic Wall Clock with Temperature

If I do, I think I will mount it level (not like the picture)

Regards,

Ken

For those of you with wireless remote sensor - where do you mount it outside the trailer?

I put mine inside the rear bumper storage area. Attached it to the lid with velcro. That way, it's out of the weather & not cooking as much as if it were in the propane tank cover. I like it!

We like the wireless remote sensors because they are so easy to move around. The remote is kept in the refrigerator when we are relocating frequently and switching between electric and propane power supplies. When we're concerned about high summer temperatures or freezing in the fall, the remote sits outside on the picnic table.

Highly recommend the weather station models. High/low memory can be very helpful when troubleshooting cooling problems.

Ahh good idea BDandTTs. I was thinking that by mounting it somewhere, it would be affected by solar heating of the metal it's mounted on. And on the undercarriage, subject to water on the road. but, simple solution to just place it somewhere outside once parked!

Thanks -
Steve

Ken that's a nice combination and a good look. Do you know what size it is? A problem I encountered in selecting a suitable clock is that most are too large to be proportional to the space.

That is the one fact that is neither in their catalog or web site. I think I will call tomorrow and see if I can get an answer.
I will post the results.

I made a hook out of copper ground wire that fits over the a-frame, and we put the outdoor sensor there when we park. We place it just behind the propane tanks, so it's very visable and kinda in the way for putting the bars on when we hitch up - that way we don't forget to put it back inside.

I really like the clock though! May switch to that once we have Little Girl ready.

FirstStreetOnline.com says clock is 12 inches diameter.

I have an Oregon Scientific WRB603. It accomodates up to 5 remote sensors. so I have one outside, one in the reefer and one in the freezer. It is an atomic clock (changing time zones always sends me to the user's manual) as well as a portable weather radio. Very happy with it.
