Funniest Asked Questions

I am building a travel site and I need your help. Our FAQ is going to be a little different than the usual found on websites. It is about all the absolutely most ridiculous questions you have ever been asked in your RV travels. Please include your first name, city, and state for the credit line.

Two examples are:
Question: Are Airstreams hard to drive?
Answer: No! They are very easy to drive. It is very simple, just keep the rubber between the ditches and the shiny side-up.
Question: Why is your trailer so shiny?
Answer: It helps the police, if the shiny side is up they know everything is A.O.K.

When inquiring about our 1956 Safari..."Are you the original owner?"....uh, no...I was born in 1959. Either my trailer looks really good or I look really bad!

Why does everybody strip the paint off those trailers? The painted ones look so much better.

I didn't take the time to explain the difference between an Airstream and an Argosy. I really figured it was a lost cause.

Question: Is that thing made of Aluminum? Did you use beer cans?
Answer: Yes, 76,281 to be exact. We hired a sorority and fraternity to help us empty the cans. They emptied all the cans in one week-end! CB

Is that thing made of stainless steel?
No, aluminum - stainless would weigh 20,000 pounds.

It's made of stainless steel, right? That's why they last forever.

Ummmm, yeah, and that is why it's really light-weight too!
