Aviators, Post Your Mods!

I am starting a new thread to keep our Aviator improvement photos in one easy to find location. Let's see what you've done!

I will start us off with some of the things done by myself as well as others including Blackhat6mike's awesome solar system and Toyboy who had the cool underglow.

That picture of ToyBoy's Aviator with the underglow is a great pic. It looks like some kind of spaceship!
Blackhat6mike, did you remake your curtains to match the rest of you interior? Mine are a solid color.

I added led lighting to the big curved cabinet and closets as well. Enjoying coffee and the view while prairie camping at a South Dakota ranch rodeo. Be back out there in June. Keep the photos coming! What have you done and where have been with your Aviator?

Wow! Love the exterior lighting on the awning and the underbelly. Very cool.

The curtains look perfect Blackhat6mike, I am glad to see that there is a solution for those. I think I am done hearing about the "clown pants" in the front windows.

We were pounded by high winds and rain from a squall line that blew through faster than I could roll in the awning and almost took it off!! One minute it was dead calm, the next, 45 knots! Believe me when I say awning poles did nothing but delay the time it took to roll it in. We are soooo lucky!

MAN, was that a surprize!!! From behind, we look way too much alike. That is scary! If it weren't for the fabric on the dinette, I would have thought you were me. I'll see if I can do a pix with same setting and zap it to you. DW says we even "sit alike", what ever that means???

That is the fabric that came with the unit, I just threw away the crappy curtains, went to a fabric shop and matched the original pattern. Bought the tracks and hardware from HD. I did the whole job in about 3 hours.
Measure the curtains from the closed position [window covered] as when you open [slide] them up, they will be too loose. If you measure with them open, they will be too short to close and you will waste a lot of fabric. I also made tie-backs for when they are open.

I agree! You will have to post the pix so people can see. That is my favorite spot to sit and look out the window. You can't see it in the photo, but off to the side were a group of intoxicated young ladies in bikinis and cowboy boots dancing on the roof of what I am sure was daddy's borrowed motorhome. About now he is probably wondering where all the holes in his roof came from!

I am going to show my wife what you did with the curtains. She likes to make things like that. The factory design is a pain to use so that's a nice improvement.
