Well I could see not getting a $600 TV from Airstream and installing one that is just as good and a bigger size for $200-$250.

Apparently everyone does not share my sense of humor. This is supposed to be a joke.

I inquired about trading the FaN in on a custom order. I was interested in a slightly bigger trailer with just one twin bed. The salesman said any diversion on the assembly line was difficult. Words to the effect that it was "Bang, bang, bang, down the line they go." He said it would be easier to order the two twin beds, then have one taken out when it arrived at the dealership.

He said he would inquire and get back to me, but he never did.

So much for that. I guess I'll make the most of what I have. It's a good trailer with lots of possibilities.

My cynical mind reads the salesman's statement as "We'll charge you as much as or more than the factory for modifying your trailer, and we'll keep all the profit here!"

Cooling in hot weather

Anything you do INSIDE your windows will be 80% less efficient than anything you do outside! Parking in heavy shade is amazingly cooling, having full awnings is probably next, and putting blackout coating on the windows will help protect against heat getting into the Airstream too.

Blackout lining definitely helps some, but if you want to try an experiment, take anything reflective and lay it over one window while letting an adjacent window absorb full sun - 30 degree difference on the inside temperature on a hot day.

I once saw a vintage unit with plain old ragged beach towels laid over the windows - they had an "aluminum tent" that they'd just replaced the frame, floor and axles on, and weren't waitng to finish to go camping. I was surprised at how cool the "tent" was inside.

My Safari SE has the windows that open fully and twice this year when it's hit 109 degrees, I've taken the reflective thingies that go in the truck's windshield and popped them over the big side windows. Definitely can notice an improvement.
