The good old days.

I don't think we walked away from the good old days.

But, I do feel very strongly, that they have been slowly, but surely taken away from us by the legal profession.

Being an employer, these days, has lost it's charm, many years ago.

As an example, today, in California, if you see something that fell off the wall or fell off of a rack, that "could" hurt you, (not did but could), you can call an attorney and sue your employer. Don't go to court, because you will lose.

Same way with behavior. You, can, as an employee, dress your employer down with any and all words you can think of, even the F word, and he better not fire you. California even frowns on disciplining that employee, such as sending them home for the day, let alone anything more severe.

Cussing openly, in California, is almost all in a days work.

Bah humbug.

That's not the way many of us that use this site, have been brought up.

All we can do, is refrain from participation in form of entertainment, that has little to no morals.

I would not print, in this site, some of the nasty language our customer service girls hear, just about everyday. Not all of our customers are Airstream owners, but most of them are.

So I guess we could say that unacceptably language is used by some Airstream owners. Fortunately, not many of them, but sadly, from any of them.

Andy

I couldn't agree more. Some of the cases that I've heard of reach far into what should be even considered. It's no wonder that court costs are so high when they have to waste so much time on matters that don't even have any practical value.


Side note; I received my order from you today and everything was perfect. Just wondering if there was supposed to be any instructions with the rockguard.

Airstream does not provide any instructions with any parts that they provide.

I can e-mail you couple of photo's, if you wish.

JohnG,
Make sure and wait for the pictures from Andy. When I bought mine, I installed it like it would make sense to anyone looking at it, but then I ended up with a large crack.
The bottom slotted brackets have 2 rivet holes, which appear to fit on the flat side of the rock guard frame. NOT!
The brackets go under the framework, using only one rivet on the very narrow bottom side of the frame. Do not drill into the plastic shield, as it will cause cracking from driving vibration.
Airstream did not and will not give warranties for this, even though there are no instructions.

Note the color changes in the stripes from side to side, as you view the photo's.

We used Dupont's "chromalusion" paint materials to create them.

That image changes colors as you view it from different angles.

Expensive materials? You bet. Almost $300.00 per pint.

Don't spill any!!!!

Thanks Andy, Really appreciate the photos. Now I see what UWE was talking about. I would have made a "Opps" if not for the pix.

The striping looks good, tell me have you ever replaced the blue vinyl strips in the rub rail and also in the trim like on a International Sovereign with any type of Blue Reflective material? If so is that available from you too?

I'm thinking that a little extra reflection is not a bad idea.

We use the insert that are available from Airstream only.

They do no have "reflective" type inserts.

I do not know where you can find such an item.

As for the concert scene...myself a former professional musician with years of touring...I love live music...but concet tix here have been 60-100 a seat. Prices me out of going to hear the big acts. I did see Clapton, but it was 92 bucks ( a friend had an extra seat) beer was $8, souvenir tee shirts were $40. I had a seat....had to look sideways to see the band, had no beer and certainly no shirt.Jeez Eric aren't ya rich enough yet?
On the other hand I saw two fabulous smooth jazz artists...5 bucks to get in and byob, and or food...
That was a good time!!
