Nice to see you comment Jim,
I'm an ex-Navy myself, also a scuba fleak until I have my baby.
An airstream is a very rare sight in Thailand. Only saw one, maybe a land yatch 60',
in a gas station in Bangkok.
So, that's why I jump into it without hesitation. I receive a lot of comment in this
forum that they all wish me luck. I understand it's implication that I will have to put
a lot of money and labour into it. Also alot of effort as most of the parts are in the States.
However, it's my long time passion. I will be patient, and when the time comes when I can sit back next to my beautiful Airstream on some tropical Thai beaches, I should be able to tell myself (and my wife) that my effort is more that worthwhile.
