I bet a Hensley would have saved this rig after going off a cliff.

I think I wasted an hour af my life! What more can be said? I sure could have used the awning for my trailer.
Thought the show was a loser just from the previews I've seen, now I know I was right.
No need to watch that again.

a ghost?

who was looking out the door of the first trailer as it was going down the road. If you taped it look carefully.

Airstreams are lighter than Avions. They should fly better.

They all still suffer from an extreme case of gravity.

Anyway, the morons then fired up the rockets - actually the rockets fired earlier than expected - the real tragedy was that no one was hurt in the process - maybe an accident would shut these morons down.
Morons.
If that was a 1962, the producers are going to learn all about smashing... smashing a legacy trailer is worse than burning the flag...

Bad

My son was on the shows web site as this was going on. Posters were slamming this episode and the whole series. No one likes the series. The show is just plain bad.

I started watching this show since the begining. IT was ok. After a few episodes it was getting repetative. I deleted it from the DVR to do list this morning.

As for wrecking the airstream. I am sure they went looking for an old trailer. They probably could not find an old SOB!

As for the shows theme and knock off of Myth Busters. Anyone who has been watching myth busters since the begining will see more and more things geting blown up. People like to see things get blown up, wrecked, etc . It sells air time.

One AS, or two destroyed?

I got to thinking about this yesterday. I kept trying to see details on the trailers to see what would fit mine before they blew it up. I think there was only one trailer. When the rocket thing went bad at the end, they didn't have anything smashed to put on the show.

So they painted the tow vehicle blue (notice the fresh shiny paint) and drove it off the cliff. Then they stood around and made up some dialoge about what they will do on the "next" one.

What a ripoff. Completely contrived. At least they only killed one AS.

Two AS potentially destroyed!

The photo sequence at the top of this thread shows a 70's era Airstream ging off the "dune". This agrees with what I think I saw on the commercial before this episode aired. The '62 or '63 was a surprise, and since it is much rarer that a 70's AS, it is a bigger tragedy, although both are losses.

Rocket Brakes

It was rerun tonight. Two different Airstreams and 2 Burbs were test victims. But the rocket brakes fired prematurely before the brake test began and the second TV and Airstream were spared.

I looked at that video and stopped it before the Airstream hit the pickup. It looked like another undamaged 70's Airstream that was deystroyed in the making of that video. Aaarrgghh!
