I juist got my Airstream Life today, they have 6 pages about an Airstream dealer in Germany. They just sold their first Airstream.

Let me tell you something about Thor and any co. that is out there to make money. They are going to sell to who ever has the money to buy. They don't care, they are in the business to make money.

The rate for the $ makes it a little bit less expencive to get a airstream overhere.
Afew day's ago I replyed to a post and gave a calculation that a 10K $ airstream, is around 23K $ when it is ready and licensed overhere.
OK it is a great american icon so are some of the vintage american cars.
But most of them are not a one of a kind.
How about our van gogh and vanmeer painting's
When shopping for my first airstream I have seen the asking price go up more than 25% becouse I was in europe.
on the last airstream I bought the OBO price became fixed price .
Why should airstream's only be enjoid in america or by american's
The longer I type the more P%$#& Iget. better to stop now.

I agree 100%. There is no valid reason this American icon should not be enjoyed and appreciated universally.

Hi again on this thread;
as Airstream , I'm a great fan of another american icon: Harley Davidson motorcycles.... Do you think with the change $/Euro, the bikes have better prices in Europe ??????
NO... except for the parts and clothes if I buy them directly in USA via the web but there is the shipping costs to add. So for light packages, it's very interesting.
The best thing to do is to pay and pick directly on place, in America with our European credit card and you don't pay shipping costs...but, because there is a but... we have to pay the tickets for the travel....
Nothing is perfect but we try .

Bruno.

We always hear of the French banning American words and culture. surprized to hear you embrace it so widely.

why is there always the question if you (americans) loose something?? It is no lost!!! It's just a fact that the rest of the world wants to enjoy an airstream life, too!!! It is no lost - it is just sharing! Sharing passion, sharing enjoyment, sharing a certain lifestyle. Do you think that a single german feels a loss if you buy a Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, BMW or VW?? No - we are proud that these are also like, loved and bought by others!!! Keep buying!!!

And as so many have problems with the weak dollar (we don´t )... We started looking for an Airstream at a Dollar of 0.88 Cents for one Dollar. Most trailers at european dealers at that time were Clippers, and 60's or 70's trailers - already then!! We bought our Trailer at a Dollar rate of 1.21 per Euro from a Forums Member in the US. Now at a Dollar rate of 1.47 per Euro, trailers are still exported to europe but I don´t think that there are many more trailers exported than before. I think it is just more recognized by people as the dollar is now more in the news than ever before...

Oh, come on - what about freedom-fries instead of french-fries...

And banning american words means not that anybody is against america, because overhere not only american words are banned, also english words, australian words, canadian words and words from newzealand... Do you get it?? Yes, words of a certain language are banned - English! And it is not a real bann it's more to get back to our own langauges like french or german or dutch, because more and more english word are in our allday speech and we loose our own words. If you look into a sales department in a germany company you won´t find a "Werbeabteilung" but a "Marketing Department"...

How many german or french words do you use everyday??? And not because there is no english word for it! Real German or French words!!!!

Give me ten - I can give you onehundred - at least!!

Hi All
As we see it from our point of view is.... any trailer that is loved and kept going is one that is not rotting at the bottom of the garden somewhere.

Anyone who buys a vintage trailer is only a custodian and willing to spend the money to own something of great beauty to pass on to someone else.

They are all precious wether they are American of British cos our suffer the same fate if they are not loved.
