I think we lost a lot of good Canadian forum members after all the ugliness during the Intrepid threads. Which is too bad.

I believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion and really no one has the right to tear anyone else down.

When we were talking to Andy he also brought to our attention that there are so many environments that the older trailers can be exposed to - but most optimal situations with normal use of a trailer which is not considered full timing - the older axels if not abused and trialers stored appropriately - if they have maintained their integrity then the tires are more suspect than the axles would be. (so even the drying out process can be so varied)

Steph - I don't know how many cannucks were on here - but this one is pretty hard to scare off - regardless of how many times any of my or borrowed ideas have been pelted by those on this forum who have nothing better to do than to stir the pot.

Personally I like contraversy - it gets people to think, gets the blood going - and sometimes forces people to do their "own" research and make their own decisions - which is what this stuff should all be about.

I like your don't touch concept - but I just have visions of hundreds of flys stuck to the ceiling after a day of going in and out. and wouldn't that be a site when we get around to "Bumping Uglies" tee hee.

HA HA - well, I admit my vinyl is a little sticky, but not sticky enough to catch flies yet (thought that might be kind of nice, it would be easier to pick them off the wall than trying to shoo them out the door!).

The Glue Theory is a good one I guess. I'm not complaining at all but I do not have the stickey ceiling thing. Not at all. I have a few other things- but not that. My lovely '67 vinyl is like new. How would that fit in with the theory?

My 68 doesn't have the sticky vinyl either, but I've attributed it to dumb luck. Maybe certain environmental conditions contributed to the deterioration of some vinyl interiors (heat, cigarette smoke, humidity) before others?
