Question Author 33a now (cab)re
24 'From the outset, ornithologist' is a common device to get the first letter, then you need an anagram ('move') of two words, to finish up with a 'shelter on wheels'.
… the usual meaning for 24 A is completely different.

19 I can't think of much if a clue - it involves a brand name...

shelter on wheels ...mmmm .....yes i get it now!
Saladddodger, I'd never met the actual 'shelter on wheels' meaning before, and initially thought it was just a punny clue!

How many misprints are there?
I'm not finished in the grid but so far have them in
12a, 13a, 29a, 38a, 40a 17a must have one but i can't see the defn unless it's Dent?
3d, 6d, 15d
Saladdodger, I might not have all the misprints, I didn't pay much attention. I think your suggestion for 17 A sounds good. I've got one in 21 A.
11 misprints (leading to a 13 letter thematic item).
19a 'what's [to the]left of F(ingernails)' + anag MOS(t)LY ('treatmen[t] finally fails').
