I'm below average...but Mr. InsideOut is above average...

so I guess that makes us just average, at least for the forum members. I'm certain the average age of non-forum member Airstreamers is much higher than 48.5...

Don't think of yourselves as below average.

You're just underachievers, who haven't yet reached your full potential.

Did you have trouble getting dates? I can't see your future father-in-law letting you pick up his daughter if you're dragging a Bambi behind the Camaro.

Although only slightly above average, I'm still within plus-two standard deviations of the norm...

My brother and I pooled our paper route money and bought our first A/S in 1982. I did not even have my driver's license yet.
It was a 1963 Bambi. We restored/updated it and hauled that little thing behind my Aspen and his Volare for a number of years.
I can safely say that I have never been without an A/S or Argosy my entire life. From the time I was born I was camping in A/S's!
Airstream born and Airstream bred, baby!

One really interesting thing has happened since we bought our airstream. My dad, who always considered getting an a/s but opted for others, is as excited or maybe even more excited about it than we are. And that is saying a lot since we are extremely excited.
When I bring another one home to restore the WHOLE family has to come over. We end up making a bar-b-que out of it! Sometimes my brother-in-law is waiting for me in my driveway. On other occasions I have had a whole troop with me to go pick one up!
My dad bought his first A/S in 1965. I was born in 1966. It was a small A/S so he upgraded after that. Always buying used ones. Then in 1973 after our family growing to a total of six people and two dogs, he bought his first and only new A/S. A 31 foot Sov. LY. My mother still has that trailer. Everything works as though it were new.
pass the A/S tradition on down. They are well-built and will lst a couple of liftemis if properly maintained.

ROTFLMAO!
Well, luckily I did not flaunt the fact that I had my own "Silver Love Pad"!
You just brought back some AMAZING memories though! Wow, I sort of feel sorry for whoever has that gaucho now!
