Just picked up a 2005 Airstream Interstate with 47k miles in very nice clean condition.
Any advice/tips would be useful. Would like to replace interior lamps with LEDs, install solar on roof, and get a cover to protect RV from weather when not in use. I don't have garage big enough.
cheers
Colin

First I'd suggest also checking this web http://www.airforums.com. This appears to be the Official Airstream web. Plenty of information there.

2nd, forget the cover unless you want to build a free-standing one. Otherwise they will rub the paint in the wind.
Just ask away and you'll get plenty of opinions and answers.

Not sure a cover is a good idea. It was discussed over on Airforums and decided by most that it was more trouble than it was worth. Probably need two people and a ladder to put on and off. Mine sits outside and I just rinse it off before each trip. I do put tire covers on it and sunshades on the front three windows. Also leave the bathroom exhaust open.

Come on over to Airforums and go to the Sprinter and B-van sub forum under the motorhome forum.
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f240/

Lots of good discussion on solar upgrades.

Airforums is not an official Airstream site. Just a group of Airstream owners like this forum is a group of Sprinter owners.
