Did the local LEO's know they were all at the same place at the same time????????

Their finishes and design are light years ahead of the rest.

I love the foot warmer under the table.

Did you end up getting your 20% off of MSRP deal?

We bought one that was on sale for about 15% or so off. Ironically, the reason it was on sale was because it was a one of a kind design Airstream was trying out with a bunk bed above the regular bed, and evidently nobody had wanted to buy it in the time frame they had in mind to sell it. Ironic because the bunk bed has become one of my favorite features, because it is like a long shelf to hold fishing gear or other long stuff. While the dealer I bought it from has frequent sales, I got the idea after a number of visits that it would be difficult to just walk in and negotiate a significant discount on one that wasn't on sale. OTOH, they have been great to deal with in the three years that I've owned it. The Airstream is a valued part of our lives now, and I can't see myself selling it any time soon.

I spent a summer pulling an airstream around Washington and Oregon on a job. It was a 1970s vintage. I was impressed with some of the features. Especially for something that was 20 years old at the time. For instance, I remember that the propane tanks were aluminum. A nice touch.

Do they still have the sewage incinerator? It was a pump and a small tube that feeds black water from the holding tank, up to the tow vehicle's exhaust manifold. Never used it myself, but man that was COOL! It'd prolly nuke your catalytic converter tho....


I'm a man, and I can change, if I have to, I guess.

I was in Switzerland recently and I didn't see one person with a knife!
