2019 Airstream Trailer Changes?

Is there any information on new changes that may be made to the 2019 Airstream travel trailers?

If history is any guide, they will find a way to build them cheaper, but charge even more!



Sorry, couldn't resist!

For 2019 they are switching to Olympic rivets on the exterior skin. It substantially cuts down on the amount of labor, can be done with one person, and they have determined that it is plenty strong.

Olympic rivets

I hope Not.

Far less labor, crappy look.

Yup. I thought I would see a little more outrage though.

2019 Airstream Trailer Changes?

Sometimes potentially dumb moves on Airstreamís part fail to surprise some of us any more.

My first thought was, ďIím darn glad my 2007 has bucked rivets in the exterior...and Iím going to KEEP it.Ē
