Installed a frosted white Maxim skylight. Converted kitchen vent, outside shower and locking fresh water fill door to Airstream stainless steel fittings. Converted both Fantastic fans to white Maxxfan 7000K units.

Added a WineGard Rayzar Automatic antenna in place of WineGard batwing antenna. Installed Truma "AquaGo comfort" instant on water heater in lieu of Atwood six gallon tank heater.

Added Voyager rear camera with a lighted power switch on front of rear roof locker. Added John Leahe three hole flag pole holder. Added front 30 amp power inlet with automatic transfer relay system. Added power outlet by rear storage access door.

Put five AM Solar GS-100 panels on the roof.

Interior
Added a flip side surface in Hickory beside sink, Hickory dinette table top and Hickory electronics boards and circuit breaker/fuse area cover hatch. Installed a 10" Rocky Mountain mattress with their custom sheets and a custom handmade quilt from Vietnam. Installed Marmoleum flooring with a brass wear plate under the dinette leg. Installed power switch with light for sub-woofer.

Installed custom made Linen colored Denim curtains replacing all factory fables window treatments.

Installed a stainless steel Dometic CU-434 stove and a Vitrifrigo DP150i refrigerator with DanFoss compressor running only on 12Vdc. Skinned both refrigerator and freezer doors in magnetic stainless steel and made a side splash by the stove of the same metal for the park magnets etc.

Customization
Installed a 500 watt solar system with a single 300 amp-hour Lithium Iron Phosphate battery mounted just forward of street side wheel well. Removed factory 1,000 watt inverter and installed a Magnum MSH-3012 hybrid converter/inverter mounted just forward of furnace. All 120Vac power outlets are energized by inverted battery power and or shore power. Battery box became wheel chock storage.

All the solar system components are under the street side sofa and dinette seat with no visible changes to the cabinetry.

Added Sirus/XM box to music system, a Verizon MiFi antenna for use with the MiFi modem and a WiFi Ranger system.

Systems and Running Gear

Changed to Michelin LTX (P) 235/75R15 XL tires mounted on 15" SenDel T03-56545T wheels with Centramatic wheel balancers, Dill 1506-453 TPMS and McGard lugnuts.

Built a custom spare tire carrier since new tires are 2.2" larger in diameter and have a thicker cross section.

Re-using our Hensley Hitch from the 25FB (CanAm tack welded the hitch to the 23D frame).

Re-using the Prodigy RF brake controller from the 25FB with the Mercedes.

Other Information
2015 Airstream International Serenity Other Information
Installed Rigid Industries LED backup lights outboard of rear frame rails. Angled and lengthened belly sewer hose tube to become flag pole storage. Modified bed support frame to access storage around the water heater area under the bed.

Tow Vehicle
Will use my 2007 Mercedes ML320 CDI diesel as primary tow vehicle. Have the Hensley Arrow stinger for the 2012 Ram 2500HD so it could be a backup tow vehicle.
