Hi there... You must be a pilot.

No this is a trailer not a airplane.
I just pee'd my pants. I'm going to steal that one from you and tell it next time I'm sittin' around the camp fire.

That's funny. I saw the pics. It is a little overkill...

I always wanted to take some little tiny car, and put a really big engine, or maybe 2 engines in and pull something around.

The other fun thing would be to pull an airstream with a Boss Hoss trike. If anything, I want to get a Geo Metro and put a train horn in it.

It'd be funny to see you hook your rig up to pull a 4' utility trailer, but that'd just be ridicoulous, right?

I told her how I loved these and how I wanted one, and they did a Motorhome like its, and, and, and, and ... I bubbled oven with excitement.
She said Motorhomes were for old peple, and it it was stupid and ugly...
Suddenly, I realized that she had walked off in a mood..
Puzzled, walked after her... she was all grumpy, and didnt want to talk about it or go back.
I was puzzled...
Later, she spat out what she was upset about..

She said that she felt she looked fat in the reflection.....

I was starting to point out that the bodyside is convex, so she actually would look..................
My mouth nearly hung me again.
The marriage lasted less than a year... and i now own one!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha does this Airstream make me look fat? No wait till you see the other motorhome mamas they make you look skinny ha ha ha ha ha ha ha what a dingbat.

Lady at California DMV.

Hi,

Lady at California DMV: "What does this Airstream weigh?"

Me: "It's on the Certificate of origin."

Lady: "How many axles does it have?"

Me: "Two axles as shown in this picture."

Lady: "Have you had it smogged yet and what size engine does it have?"

Me: "IT'S A TRAILER; IT DOESN'T HAVE AN ENGINE."

Superviser: "You need to bring your trailer to this office for a physical VIN check verification."

Me: "Your parking lot is so small I barely found a place to park my Navigator; Where will I ever park my tow vehicle and trailer at 44' long?"

Superviser: "You have to bring it here."

Note: Form states that an officer of peace can do a VIN verification.

Me: Brought back VIN verification form signed by Lakewood Sheriff.

Superviser: "Who verified this VIN?"

Me: "A Lakewood Sheriff."

Superviser: "He didn't fill out this section in the middle of the page."

Me: "The section in the middle of the page is for engine identification for motorhomes, THIS IS A TRAILER, IT DOESN'T HAVE AN ENGINE."

Sounds like all DMV's across the country. Very funny. But very pitiful.

Asked by a passer-by when my 27 FC was parked at the curb in front of our house...
Q: Why's it rounded?
A: Makes it travel smoother...
Q: Well, is it square inside?

This is almost a duplicate:
them: "Did you buy this trailer new?"
me: "Yes. I had my mother pick me up and carry me over to the dealer so I could sign the papers from my bassinet."
