That's how Wally pretty much started...He sold kits/plans for individuals to build their own trailer. Imagine the shipping costs for the parts of a modern Airstream to be shipped to your door.

If not, you could look the Q.C. person in the mirror, and tell them what you thought of them...

Is this english, or do I have to press "1"?

Or maybe this is twitter speak, or phone code, or ....

Ouch, I've got it, it's Canadian!

P.S.--True confessions, it would be easier to put an Airstream together from such a kit than to refurbish an Vintage Airstream...

Airstream sales adds could read
"Back to the future.FREE shipping included".
