Ok, as a Vietnam vet myself, a sailor. I now would like to hear the War Story. If it is ok.

I have edited other threads with posts that "poke" at someone, however in this one Newstreamer started "wth all due respect" before he stated his somewhat mis-guided opinion.....so I left it alone.

I "poke" at things, not people, and some of you don't seem to get it.


You made comments on an Airstream board knocking Airstreams. It is understandable when you do this that it will raise a huge negative reaction, people are passionate about these, they are going to take it personally. If you made these comments on a SOB board, you might have supporters. A lot of it is when or where a comment is made. You chose the wrong place.

NewStreamer: You are wrong, not a valid comparison. In your example you say Chevrolet is building LADA cars. Fine. It is a LADA designed product, made with LADA parts assembled in a different location. John Deere used to have Yanmar build tractors for them in Japan. It was a John Deere design, but manufactured by Yanmar according to John Deere's plans and blueprints. So is it a Yanmar or a Deere? Of course it is a Deere.

The Airstream Motorhomes are DESIGNED and BUILT in Jackson Center, Ohio. They are AIRSTEAMS 100%.

The picture shows Airstreams Trailers and Airstream Motor Homes coming off the same line. Is that what you are trying to explain?

It doesnít show rebadged Holiday Rambler motor homes coming off the HR line as Airstream Motor Homes. That would be made by SOB.

I find it hard to believe you are still trying to justify you rude comment. I wouldnít matter if the man camped in a tent with a Airstream Sticker on it, your comment was a attempt to belittle his motor home and make yourself feel superior.


Let me take this opportunity to wish you a happy Thanks Giving.

When Krazykraut first joined up and posted his photo's and then later a link to his website with the numerous photo's of his Airstream MH, MarilynW and I browsed thru them in wonder and amazement. We agreed that if we were looking for a new MH, that would be it. It was the first one we had ever seen. Just the right size for the two of us.

AirstreamPhoto's LandYacht

Krazykraut's website

Her first comment was that if that type of composite material had been available when the Airstream's went from the kits to a full production trailer, that would have been what they would have been built from. As it was in the 30's & 40's, aluminum was the state of the art material of the day and aircraft construction was the method of choice for construction. And now today, modern materials and aircraft construction are still the method of choice for Airstream.

If I get over that way, I will expect a tour. He only lives about 20 minutes from me.

I repeat, its is not a personal matter at all.
That is the question I am asking you.

Ron, what would that prove ? If Thor Corp. owned Airstream at the time the blueprints would have a reference to Thor Corp in the title block.

Correct, now you got it.

Thanks Ron, I am in New Orleans my biggest worry is what level of sun screen to wear.

Ron, I must say I am glad you own a Airstream and feel so strongly about it that is where we have common ground.

Cool

Krazykraut,
I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to the festival. That's pretty much what it's all about. Having a moter home, t.t., pop-up camper, tent - whatever, allows the owner to go places and do things that may not be possible otherwise.
Hubby took early retirement and we are hoping to have our own t.t. one day soon so we can see some of this wonderful country without going bankrupt doing it. (the stock market will take care of that part) So as far as brand names go . . . no matter what it is or where it came from, motor on and enjoy every minute you can.

ps your pics are great. what a nice coach you have !
