I'm not sure that anything in regards to the internal archives would be a sure bet. I have often wondered why there is so little info in play myself. I have read literally thousands of threads on this and the other Airstream sites but have only seen speculation and conjecture of the various model population questions.
I have found it odd too that no former member of Airstream management or even assembly (that I have ever seen) has become a contributing member of any of the various forums. Inland Andy is the one notable exception, having worked for the Carravanner Insurance division of the company.
I have oftened wondered how many of the alumnus own an Airstream. Whenever I have called the factory and talked to anyone I always ask. Of the 4 or 5 folks I have asked, one owned an Airstream, a vintage model.
Inland Andy have you ever owned one? What models?
As for the factory not wanting questions. I have no idea but they did open their own forum. However apparently only one employee has been used there to answer only a few questions. You'd have to think that in opening a board that they would certainly expect questions, but maybe that is not the boards purpose. Wish I knew.
