I'm in Corpus Christi and it's 97 deg. I'm looking for a 65/70 deg climate, just for a couple of weeks.

I did find the cavities that you referred to. I agree that it's a prob.

As for the remote lock/unlock, mine doesn't have the keypad on the doors so I don't think it has them at all but will look into it.

I wonder if the keyless entry was optional. Mine also came with an outside tv which I removed and put in my mother's house. I just couldn't see it lasting out there or us even ever using it. If you want to escape the heat camp on Minnesota's north shore of Lake Superior. There are lots of Southern rvers who stay at our favorite campground and enjoy the natural air conditioner the cold lake water provides.
I drove through your home town when we first got our last travel trailer back in 1998 on our way to spend Christmas on the ocean. I remember it was strange seeing Christmas decorations but no snow!

I bought mine new in Florida. I have been very pleased with it except for the shower door handle falls off all the time. So far that is really the only thing. The little reading light by the bed came apart and I am waiting on replacement. It pulls very easily. It looks awesome. I can see where they messed up with the first price point. There is no way I would have paid $80,000. The interior is to cheap looking and is not worthy of that price point. I feel if they would continue this line again and try and keep it at price point they are selling now that it is reasonable and good value for the money. I feel they should have put leather and maybe a wood looking floor and it would have gone a long way in helping them sell them better. The front window covering is cheapy looking also and not very functional. More thought should have been put in that. I like everything else about it.

welcome

Welcome to the group! With only about 70 Aviators built, their aren't many of us, but I hope people post enough to keep the thread at least somewhat active.
The aviator had quality control issues, but I really like the design and I think it will easily outlast the typical rubber roof RV. I enjoy making improvements to mine and spend a lot of time in it. I believe somebody on this thread even had their upholstery redone in leather!

We need to get our 70 owners together and get together. What kind of improvements have people made to their units? I would like to have some ideas. I just love mine so far despite the horror stories that I have read. Any ideas on how to make the front window covering look better? I sure get a lot of questions about my trailer when I am parked. It is an awesome looking trailer on the outside. Happy to own an Aviator!

It would be fun to have an Aviator get together. It would have to be planned at least a year in advance though. Maybe somewhere in the middle of the country.

My improvements have been mostly correcting things that should of been done properly in the first place. I have a list on an earlier post. We will be camping a lot in the next few months and I hope to post more maybe with some pictures.

I have looked everywhere that I can think of with no success. It's become a treasure hunt. Almost at a point where I don't want help because I'm enjoying the search but I have a couple of things that I need to do with it. Best wishes to all.

South Dakota!

Just wanted to share a few photos of our trip to a prairie rodeo. The Aviator worked great and the batteries easily lasted 3 days with no recharging. Everybody enjoyed the open feel the big windows provide and how quiet the camper is inside. Next stop is the cool shores of Lake Superior!
