Quite obviously, it is a cow tipper.

What that thing really is an early attempt by Airstream to meet the challenge of the Leatherman universal tool, but obviously the prototype was a little too large for pocket use, so they included one with every trailer sold....

you's guys...

what a bunch of comedians!

I'm tellin' ya, my answer is correct. I have one, and I use it just about every time I camp. The only time I don't need the 2nd step is when the trailer is parked in a spot where the ground is sloping upward toward the curbside. Unfortunately, that is the situation in the camper's home parking spot...otherwise, I'd have already taken a picture of it in action. Maybe I'll give it a try this weekend, if the sun ever comes out again. I'm not sure if I can extend the second step all the way, without it touching the ground.

if you "never" need the second step, that means that you must either be really tall, or.......you need new axles.

Why don't you believe me??????????

I have one of those, and have been using it for years. It is a support for the bunk bed. The Airstream factory recalled them because they develop
hairline cracks over time. I sell the newer improved, safer, magneseum balanced support for $429.99 plus shipping.

Uh-oh. I've timed out on reputation points, so the the rest of you guessers are off by yourselves.

its an airstream divining rod. If you have one of these in your hands, usually a airstream will be near by.

Talking Rumor Has it....

Okay....now that all the 'crackpots' have given their answers, it's time for the truth

This device is a valuable antique with a nautical theme. Yep...it's the original harpoon from the 1950's version of Moby Dick. Just look at it for a long time and you'll see images of Captain Ahab chasing a flamingo or was it a whale?

It's a measuring tool, to see if your countertop edges are truly 90 degrees.
