Airstream Sterling Edition

chrisThis past weekend, there was only one other trailer camping by the lake and it happened to be an Airstream.

Chris and his friends Lindsey and Emma were going to see Aerosmith on Saturday.

Chris has a Sterling Edition, which means his cabinetry is silver. He also has one of the most tricked out electrical systems that we’ve ever seen. He has an Outback mobile inverter/charger that’s over 2,000 watts and is smart enough to know if he’s on shore power or battery. On top of that his outlets work no matter what type of power he’s running on. He doesn’t have separate inverter and shore power outlets like we do.

Chris has 400 watts of solar panels and 4 of the big Lifeline batteries. With the Outback inverter and those batteries he can actually start and run his air conditioner, though he’s only done it briefly a couple times.

We had a great time hanging out with the trio and hope to meet up with Chris again somewhere on the road.

    How was the yellow floor in the Sterling? Have only seen it online in pics and was wondering how “interesting” it was in person.

    Then again, we put a yellow Marmoleum floor in our Argosy a few years back…

      Hi Tom! It actually works! I had the same feeling as you from the photos online, but in person it looked great.
