Not OT - it's a fairly new name which is perfect for this new Airstreaming chapter of my life.

Looks like the Shiny Object Syndrome wins today. I've just learned that Costco has the Dyson Hot/Cool AM04 (the "old" model just replaced by the 05) available for $100 off the insanely expensive regular price. Well designed high tech shiny objects are really hard to resist. Plus many raves here about this product.

Off to Costco...

$150,000 Airstream

I just watched the video on the new $150,000 Airstream trailer. And I have to confess I reacted badly to it.

Work more - spend more - work more - spend more - work more - spend more - work more - spend more...

Whew! It reminds me a lot of my hamster running furiously on his stationary wheel. The shiny object syndrome - hard to get over it, but I'm still recovering and I'm fighting it hard (with occasional relapses).

So, I've had my trailer now for just about two years. After I ordered it I began the process of collecting "stuff" that I wanted aboard. Since delivery I've made a LOT of mods to make it really mine, and with the exception of the 2d AC I had added at JC last month I've done all the work myself. The joy of the Airstream, among other things, is that it truly is ultimately customizable. As you've perused our Forums you can just get lost in the incredible things people have done with them -- albeit a vintage or a new one like mine. I have the Dyson stick vacuum (with a second battery) and it takes almost no space, works great, and does a great a job keeping trailer and car clean. Just go wherever your inclination takes you!

Leaf...

I agree. I enjoy equipping and customizing the trailer. I have been fairly successful staying with functional items, but during a relapse I bought a Dyson Hot & Cool on sale at Costco. I'm sure the same function could be obtained from a $20 space heater, but the Dyson is just so damn cool.

Kind of a fun exercise for a former shiny object junkie undergoing detox.
