Airstream Accessories for Travel: Odds and Ends
By: Lisa Renee Sherman
There are basically two types of adventure seekers. The ones that want to
rough it and live in the wild, and those that enjoy a little comfort here
and there. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to live off the
land and brag about inventing tricks that even Survivor Man didn’t mention.
On the other hand, comfort isn’t necessarily an over rated option.
Airstream accessories such as GPS systems have taken the country by storm.
Drivers are rushing out to purchase one just to get from their house to the
other side of town. On can debate on “need” verse “want” purchases, but
a GPS system could come in very handy while trekking across the country.
This little gadgets can route drivers away from construction, map only scenic
routes, or discover the most direct routes.
Consumer Reports state that the top five GPS Systems currently are the Garmin
Nuvi 760, Garmin Nuvi 650, TomTom Go 920T, Garmin Nuvi 350, and the Magellan
Maestro 4250. For between two and three hundred dollars, these little guys
could save a lot of time, as well as gasoline. For some travelers, spreading
the map across the dash board and tracing each wrong turn is one of the best
parts of over the road travel. If that sounds like a nightmare, then a GPS
just might be right for you.
Awnings can be another coveted item. When out on the road for days at a time,
an awning can in fact create an extra room. Without a doubt, they do cut the
heat intensity down just from shading from the sun alone. The major decision
that must be wrestled with is new style or vintage? The newer awnings offer
convenience at the press of a button. Basically work free and hassle free.
The only main issue is that most Vintage owners struggle with the look of a
new awning next to the beautiful travel trailer from yesterday. There is an
answer to this. Pole and Rope Fabric Awnings. These are period correct, and
look charming hanging from a vintage Airstream.
For the environmentally friendly traveler there are numerous green products
that are now being produced for this niche. One of the best finds are solar
panels. They come in sizes that help merely supplement energy all the way up
8AMP Generators. The generators are designed to replace propane and gas generators
with environmentally friendly renewable energy. There are various types, ranging
from complex to “plug and play”. Of course, it only matters what the individual
is wishing to spend. The panels merely attach to the roof of your Airstream travel
trailer or motorhome and can offer huge energy efficient savings.
It doesn’t matter if you are looking for Airstream parts and accessories or fire pits,
micro suede bedding, or satellite dishes. Everything that could possibly make your
travel more comfortable is out there, merely a Google away. The hardest decision is
always the same. What is the mood or style you are trying to achieve and what is the
budget that will get you there.
