This thread is always interesting.... and I see there are the comments referencing the "Do they still make those".....
So, the other part is, why?
A truthful statement...or at least as close as I can get to the truth..... In 2008, I was riding across US 2 on the return leg of my 7,000 mile solo motorcycle ride to Portland, Oregon and after having to unpack and repack my moto every night at the Hampton Inn's, I got to thinking there was a better way to do this. So, to my local AS dealer I went, thinking I might want to at least become educated.
They looked so nice and I thought, "Gosh, must be at least $25,000 or more" but I could handle this. And the fact I had a white Porsche Cayenne in those days, the commercial told me this must be a message from .....OK, not a direct message, but at least I felt drawn in to the Aluminitis disease.
Then I looked at the price tag, and after a few minutes of CPR, I looked again....two weeks later I am purchasing an International, at the end of the model year, 25D I think was the configuration, and off I went with my Cayenne Turbo pulling it easily.....oh, yes, about 10-11 mpg.....and with a fuel shortage, especially Hi test, this was a problem.
Next sticker shock, Dodge Diesel....again, purchased at the model year end, and a super TV by my experience so far.
But, the bed on a 25D cannot be made up by humans.....at least not this one. So, the 27FB...absolutely wonderful. However, a complication of Aluminitis is the idea of going even bigger....so to an SOB, Tiffin's Allegro Bus. Nice, but after a few years, just too big for me, so back to another SOB (from the Tiffin perspective) and after selling the bus, a new Serenity....doggone, they did not have a Classic at that time.....
Now after all this, as far as I am concerned, I deserve an Airstream....and that is why I have an Airstream. Of course, pulling an AS one always has the pleasure of listening to those with their huge fifth wheels talk about the 17 mpg towing..etc., and other fantasy stories.
And, if I am mean spirited I can walk around an RV campground talking to the moho owners and ask if they have any troubles with the moho....usually this results in their not continuing the conversation.....more
Maybe this post should have been in the thread Welcome to the Breakfast Club... but as it has a few breakdowns in reality testing, I thought it was more random.....
