Hey, now here is the motorhome replacement everyone is looking for!

Neat vehicle....wonder how long it would take to see if it could be allowed in WBCCI?

hmmmmm....

It kind of reminds me of a 'party' limo...with the overhead neon lights! I'm not sure one would use it for flyfishing...

Oh I think it could but it would need some serious retrofitting.

A Ford Airstream in the future ?

Ford and Airstream announced a new "concept" vehicle at the North American Auto Show. What's next?

Sure to be at least as dangerous as any other Ford vehicle, coming to a dealer near you!

O.K. but all I get is "silver reflective paint" for the exterior. I want/need to know who supplied the paint? Was it Alsacorp? This is what I want to do my coach with above the belt line and below the reflective white hat. Enquiring minds .....

I wonder if they come with a tow package? Bambi or Safari?

See the news media for yourself:

Go to: Media.Ford.com:
On the left section Jump To
select media kits "FORD"
select model "airstream concept"

"Playing to win in the growing crossover segment, Ford has joined with another iconic company to showcase how it could further expand its lineup of expressive crossovers with the Ford Airstream Concept"

Yeah, you get 'em from the same places that have the stick-on bullet holes and yer #3 stickers.

Fuel cell electric... anybody hear if they might put a PSD in it later?

Fuel cells do have exhaust: it is water vapor.

You know, I realize water vapor is a lot better than carbon monoxide, but I wonder if 100 years from now people will be saying about the fuel cell what we say about the internal combustion engine of 100 years ago when it was considered to be the "clean" alternative to horse poop.

I mean if we replace all the cars in Atlanta or Orlando or Miami with water vapor belching fuel cell powered vehicles during rush hour, what will that do to the humidity levels? If we do that to Phoenix, what impact will that have on the arid desert environment? How will that effect that bi-om? Will we still screw up the environment only in a different way? I know these rhetorical questions have an answer that is much better than leaving things the way we have them now, but my point is that no matter what we do shy of going solar, we will have an impact, most likely negative, on our environment as long as we have automobiles and rush hour traffic.

On a positive note, I think this would make the most aesthetically pleasing toad you would ever see behind a Classic Airstream Motor Home, don't you?

When I first heard about this I thought maybe it was going to be a B campervan. Oh well. I guess I don't see the point of having an Airstream connection.

It's not bad...but will it pull a 34' tri axle like the Intrepid does?

If you take it to CanAm it will! They can probably make a tri-cycle pull a 34' Classic.
