Video of Airstream Assembly

The link to this video was in the latest Airstream newsletter. It's one of the better ones I've seen.

It might also identify why several of us have corrosion issues.

Great video - thanks for sharing. The video makes me look at my Airstream a little differently.

Considering how many hands touch a unit from start to finish and how easy it is to dent or scratch the Aluminum, I'm amazed at the quality of the work.

Sweet Video! I love to see how things are made. Makes me wish there was a video from the old days of Airstream manufacturing.

Did anyone besides me hear that "they install residential grade pvc plumbing?" I
thought it was PEX grade.

"cleaned??

Like any good maid, they do the middle of the floor, not inside cabinets. Out of sight, out of mind comes to my thoughts.

Great video. I recall the made in America show that also showed a similar video. Always a great thing to see. It's funny once you own one how the dream meets the reality.

I think they were referring to the drains.
