Airstream SkyDeck MH!!!!

I just got the latest Motorhome Magazine and there is an article about the new 2003 Airstream SkyDeck motorhome. It has a patio on top of the unit. Here is the article.

I looked at it at the KC RV show but it was'nt the AS one but it was built by Thor, when your on the top you feel as if your on a pontoon boat, topside has railings that fold down when traveling, a grill, stereo, table/chairs. I had the urge to yell out a bunch of nautical jibberish while on top, oh well, it did not impress me but I can see those with money having to have one. If you go to the races you'll have a good view with it until something bigger is made.

I'm sure we don't want to know how much. I do know it is much more than my 1985 345!!! Shoot, the depreciation driving that off the lot is more than my 1985 345!!!!!!

We also saw one at an RV show a few months back. Clever idea and the kids thought it was way cool.
For me it was 200,000 more than my Airstream and I didn't quite see all that value there.

We'll just rivet a couple of deck chairs to the roof and hang out on those. Put ya a bar be cue up there and you're set!

Our aluminum skinned units are going strong at 17 years old. I wonder how those will be doing in 17 years?

The next step would be to make a pop-up top with screened porch and maybe beds! On the nice nights, you could sleep ten feet off the ground and get a breeze. Of course your rig would be 18-20 feet high at that point!

Well, it's not QUITE 17 years later, but my 2005 drives strong. Seems the fiberglass doesn't hold up the way the aluminum does, not that any of you should be walking on your roof, you could enlarge your rivet holes and start leaking yourselves.

I am working on a plan to put a permanent roof on the patio that you lower before travel, trying to keep the wind resistance down on my bad MPG RV. Plus I can hang netting from the twin wall polycarbonate roof to make a screen porch. Would keep the rain off, some of the sun off, and keep the snow out of the patio.

It will probably be 20 feet tall when up.

According to Airstream records, the Sky Decks sold new for about $250,000.

Last month there was a beautiful red Sky Deck for sale in Alabama with only 19k miles. Price $80,000. I think these rids would be excellent for full timers.
