    I noticed that you "Swapped the plastic hood vent for a stainless steel one". I've searched and cannot find a supplier. Where did you find the stainless vent?

    Hoping to finalize the details towards the end of the year when things slow just a bit for us. Definitely on our things to do, just need to make sure we set it up properly. Thank you for checking in with me!

    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.

Here’s a post on the custom 3” lift I helped Marty do on his 2019 Flying Cloud 23FB. Marty contacted me on the forum and informed me he lives less than 30 minutes away from me and asked would I be willing to help him with his lift project. I told him I would be more than glad to help.
His 23FB came equipped with Dexter #11 axles and required 11” long lift blocks vs my 2014 23D trailer which is equipped with #10 axles and required 10” blocks.
The lift kit was fabricated from 3”x 3”...

Upgraded my batteries from (2) Group 27 12 volts to 2 Trojan T105 6 volts. This swap was mandated by waking up one morning at Stone Mtn GA campground to the smell of sulfur/rotten eggs, yep I officially cooked on of my factory interstate batteries. The water level was check religiously so I am going to blame the factory single stage charger. Before I installed the new Trojans I installed a new Progressive Dynamic 4655v charger converter. This unit is a 4 stage charger that monitors your batteries...

I posted this in a thread earlier, but thought it would be good to add as a Blog post.
Getting service work done on your Airstream if you are either (A) not able to do the work, (B) don’t have the time to do the work, or (C) don’t need to personally do the work because it’s a warranty issue can be very challenging.
Returning back to the factory (The Pilgrimage to the Mothership) is often been stated to be the best place to take your Airstream trailer...

We are currently in Gatlinburg TN spending some time on the Redneck Riviera. While making the 6 hour drive up our panty door decide it wanted to remove itself from the cabinet. Well almost anyway. The 2 screws holding the bottom hinge base plate ripped out of the cabinet wall and 1 of the screws from the upper plate also was stripped. This left the cabinet door hanging precariously by 1 little screw. I was 1 screw away from uncertain damage to either the cabinet door, flooring, or both. I am...

I’ve got a couple of Clearance lights that are on the fritz, one is out and the other is intermittent. So in Grand “Dept of OverKill” style I’m going to replace them all with a few upgrades along the way. I’ve ordered the Replacements (7 Red and 4 Amber) from “The Trailer Shop” an eBay store for $165.15. Amazon also had them but they were $208.12 there. The old lights where starting to get cloudy anyway. See pics...

UPDATE.....New lights arrived yesterday. We will be traveling in...
