The last few paragraphs of my ad copy, below, are cut off.
No matter how many times I have used MANAGE AD and Edit they still won't appear. It says that if in difficulty contact the Site Administrator. There are no obvious links and I can't find out how this is done.
Does anybody know?

The whole 5-year long renewal/construction process is well documented/photo-illustrated here, in one of the most highly followed threads on AIR FORUMS, the world’s largest Airstream Community on the Web :
If you are looking for a late model AIRSTREAM, consider this: you might also need a tow vehicle, which may or may not please you as your daily driver.
If you’ve been thinking of an Airstream INTERSTATE, think of this: an Interstate may or may not suit you as a daily driver but it will make no quick getaways from the campground when you forget the milk!
Many miles between fill-ups ( rig averages 18 mpg ) but be warned about this: you’ll be held behind at every stop by admiring folks with friendly questions.
$87,000 for it all
