Little video put together by Google plus automatically, quite impressed with what it can do.

What I got for my Airstream today

The LED marker lights I ordered off eBay arrived today. They cost about $18 NZD each, the shipping cost about $40 NZD for the 3 x red & 2 x amber LED marker lights.

Airstream Marker Lights

The plastic on my current ones are a bit foggy but still works fine, however one of my amber marker light has a clip missing and is hanging loose. Comparing the old with the new ones received, I found the old one has the double sided foam adhesive missing, and the clips are made of plastic. Good to see that they upgraded new ones with proper metal clips, which make them very solid!

I am looking to replace the 2 front amber marker lights & the 3 top rear red marker lights replaced, this should make it look nice and new.

If you are also looking for replacement lights, the part number is: PL7123A, these are actually lights designed for Ford Chevy Dodge.

What I also got for my Airstream today is that I have managed to install a domestic dump station, yes you heard it right we have our very own private dump station, no more waiting in line and no more seeing mess left by previous dumper! It feels so good when you can finally manage your own poo.

This also means that we can use the toilet and shower when we are parked up at home, and use it as a spare room! well worth the effort.

Yes the dump point is complete with a lid, and yes it is sitting by the lavenders… hmm hmm hmm…

First Aistream Rally in New Zealand?

The Airstream Club website was started in 2013; after sitting dormant for the past 2 years, it has finally woken up again! What’s better,  we have had the opportunity of meeting up with other Airstream enthusiasts around New Zealand!

How it started – Melissa (owner of the beautiful 1978 Argosy & the rugged Land Rover Defender 110) started an Airstream ‘Meet-up‘ group, and invited us to join; one thing leads to another, here we have 3 beautiful Airstreams gathered at the Peel Forest – DOC campground (22kms North of Geraldine). It was a comfortable picturesque 2 hour drive from Christchurch.

Huge effort Melissa  for the big drive all the way from Auckland to meet us, and big thanks to her for getting in touch via the Airstream Club website! We wish you a pleasant onward journey to Lake Tekapo & then to Queenstown. Also, great seeing you again Roger and Laura, your 15 footer is amazingly photogenic, and thanks to you for inviting your friend ‘Melissa Charlie’ to come along, she was very brave to have stayed in the wee tent in that storm, what a trooper!! I agree with you Roger that it is important that we share the Airstream joy!

To other Airstream enthusiasts out there in New Zealand, please feel welcome to join us in the meetup group by visiting this link: Meet-up, or contact us to share your Airstream story with us on this website.

I love a day like this, when winds are warm and the sky is on fire! Nice reflection on the aluminium panels of the Airstream Flying Cloud.
