8. Location of smoke detector too close to stove. Any meal which requires significant cooking will set it off. We have covered it up with a shower cap. Ugly and not the safest but works.

Oh goodness, JNM30327- have you ever seen the shell of an Airstream that has burned? Please. please discontinue this practice. If it keeps the alarm from working while cooking, it will stop it in case of a real need. It's worth your lives to take the time to disable it only while cooking and the rest of the time make it operative!

It is simple to move the location of the detector to a location in the trailer that would still detect a fire but not trigger every time you use the stove. Smoke rises and the trailer ceiling is going to catch it all. I moved mine forward, which is even more important because all of my electrical is now under the bed.
You can just install rivets in the empty holes near the galley and it looks like nothing was ever disturbed.

My pet peeve is not having more time to spend in my Airstream.

I'm sitting here in my Airstream with the AC running and the window blinds all open with my computer and a cup of coffee.

My pet peeve is people that park their Airstreams at home in their driveways and are not on the road enjoying the country.

Just like me right now. I'm in my driveway right now!

But that will change in one week! :brows:

I kinda like driveway camping...

I do a lot of that with my dogs.
When mama decides to clean house out we go.
What a wonderfull doghouse a 30' Classic makes :-).
The truth is I enjoy spending time in it no matter where it is parked.
