    Hey Rivet Master!

    thanks for the offer to connect. this community is amazing; immediate responses in less than 24 hours!

    We pick up our AS in about 2 weeks from now and I'm working on getting our tow vehicle in the next 2 weeks. We live in North Vancouver, BC and bought it in Seattle as we wanted the CB model, so we plan to do our first trip in the Seattle area so we can spend a few days in it, then go back to dealer before heading up for any adjustments or issues. So much for camping in our driveway!

    Let me know the best way; can message back and forth, chat over the phone or both. Appreciate the offer and looking forward to learning some helpful stuff!

    My phone is 778-316-5793. Thanks.

A while back our 23D Airstream developed a leak in its Freshwater tank. I decided to tackle this job of swapping the tank out myself. This is not a job for the faint of heart and was one of the harder repairs I’ve done to our Airstream. Took 2 days due to painting tank pan.
Started out by contacting my local Airstream dealer and ordering a new freshwater tank. Cost was $115.99 plus freight. I knew I did not want to drop the old water tank in hopes it could be repaired without having a new...

I made a set of Mud Flaps from a single Big Truck Mud Flap from NAPA.
I cut the two flaps out with a bandsaw and mountedthem to the trailer using pop rivets.
Hardest part of this whole project was finding the radius to cut the flap to match the under belly.
Here are some photos that will tell the story

With the Rail now riveted in place, I used painters tape to mask off a straight line for caulking. Caulk the top edge of the awning rail with Sikaflex and smooth/“bed the bead of caulk with your finger. Once you remove the tape you get a nice straight line.
Mounting the awning arm hardware was the same process using the measurements that Zip Dee provided in the instructions. The mounting rivets and hardware were provide. Drill holes in the appropriate locations from measurements provided,...
