[quote=Minnie's Mate]It (they) looks like a travel trailer that might have been designed by the Spanish art neuveau architect Antonio Gaudi. I can definitely see a circus connection...or the bordello reference speculated earlier.

Aha!!!Reading this thread, I began asking myself, How? and Why? would people who love and respect the clean efficient lines of the Airstream be so enamoured with a trailer that so obviously reflects the opposite in design concept. Airstream=Form follows function. Other Thing=Form has little to do with function. The mention of Gaudi reminded me that in art/design there can be extreme poles in human preference. So I guess appreciating Airstream economy of design does not preclude the appreciation of other forms. After all, I like British sports cars and those weird and funky "Art" cars.
