It came with 6 wood screws for securing it to the floor. Do you happen to know how yours was installed?

If not, I can ask Airstream. Thanks.
I am almost positive that it uses a base attached with 6 screws. I say almost positive because the AS is in the storage lot right now and I can only go by memory (which is risky at best). We will be traveling with it tomorrow and I can verify then.

Thanks. Just don't loosen one, because if it is bolted through the floor the nut on the bottom side might not tighten again. I think I would be okay to just use the included 6 screws, and I don't think there is anything under that part of the floor like one of the tanks that could get punctured. If I need to bolt it down, that would mean cutting an access hole through the bottom and then patching it.

One more thing if you don't mind. Could you post a picture of the underside of the dinette table?

I'm curious if it's just the table top mounted on the pedestal, or if there is another layer in-between.

We have had our Trotter out twice for long weekend trips. Love the silver baby, and it tows so nice, only had it to 90mph but didn't notice it was behind me. It sure beats the SOB fiver we had previously, we can enjoy camping and not cleaning for hours. Another trip is planned in 2 weeks, I can hardly wait, my wife is looking for a spot for a full length mirror, the only thing missing so far.

Welcome to the forum and the world of "streaming". Glad to hear you are enjoying your new AS, or as you mentioned, the silver baby! Have you thought a name for her yet? Or is that it?

We are in Savannah, GA right now and last night was the first night we spent in our new GT. I was somewhat concerned about the mattress but I'm happy to say that it is very comfortable. I slept well.

Mastering the dual zone thermostat took a few minutes but I got it.

One thing I notice that I must changed is on the dinette table. It is made of laminate material and has an edge band around the perimeter (as I think almost all tables are made). The top of the edge banding has a sharp edge. It's uncomfortable to have my arm on the table and be tying on my computer (as I'm doing right now). Some fine sandpaper can round that edge a bit.

But all in all it's great! And as ShinyPete mentioned in his comments, "This is a hobby.....!"

The pedestal has a plate on top of it. Not sure how it is attached as it is not welded.

The base has six screws attaching it to the floor.

Here are some pics.

Thanks so much. That is definitely the same pedestal. The top plate is screwed on from the top, and it doesn’t look like they use any additional support between that and the table top. I’ll share pictures in a separate thread once I get that far. We are camping until mid May, and Lambright is scheduled to ship the recliner around that same time.

I had the 2018 globetrotter and the table was never level and NEVER stable. It always leaned toward the door. Quick off the assembly and no quality control. Click image for larger version
