My uncle owns a KOA and tells me they are not "normal" Airstreams, but special coaches hardened for rental use; he's not buying any and he's a old-time player. His wife is a ex-KOA owner and Wally fan (they've owned
seven Airstreams), agrees; it will cheapen the brand when these "rentals" come on the market. Who's going to keep them shiney?

"... at least the manual doesn't have any upkeep instructions for any."
Upkeep starts with a six digit income...and a few other unmentionables.

We were in LV 2 weeks ago at our timeshare and drove through the KOA to look at possible alternatives. They have about a dozen shiny aluminum rentals, and the web site is showing $45 a night for Feb.
some of the locations are better than others, as usual: some trees or shade, less traffic, etc. If you want to try this out in their A/S instead of yours, then drive around the campground to select your preferred location choices and then see what the office can do. (Maybe you can do that online?)

That is because Bob is standing in front of units that are most likely being discontinued while the factory remains mothballed and the company image continues to be tarnished by stunts like this and it's poor QC, issues and support of those issues .

I'm not surprized

Advertizers have been using women to point at, and caress vehicles probably shortly after the wheel was invented. BMW use to have a table with a mechanic and a salesman at the Euro auto shows. Then BMW of North America hired me to video tape the Chicago auto show, to show the Germans how to sell a car. ( I took shots of models all day long...tough gig ) I am not stupid enough to buy a vehicle because there is a pretty girl in front of it. It's insulting. I bought my truck to show my lady how big and strong I am. I bought my Airstream so that she would come camping with me.

What a great PR move, get these trailers out in front of the Public so they can see for themselves what they are missing.

Specially "hardened" unit's.

Maybe, just maybe, we'll see some good come out of this for all of us.

If these units are half as "good" as....well, look at the bright side.

Rumor has it that a Jose Cuarvo and Capt Morgan models are being unveiled at hot-hit night spots and underground raves.

My parents used to own a KOA and my mother's current boyfriend owns one now. They don't see how to get a return on them. It is around $58K to get one and that is a lot of nights at around $100 to pay back. Everyone has their own opinions.
