Do most people feel that way?

Most people are uninformed but feel free to voice their opinions. Me included. Can lead to interesting conversations. Jim

Opinion before knowledge. There is a lot of that going around these days.

"Can you provide citations to back that up, or did you just air another fact-free opinion?"

Where were you? It's amazing that they haven't seen MB commercial sprinter vans and wouldn't get that it's the same thing. MB sprinter vans are all over the place!!

I love that story, and find it quite entertaining. Just think, when that bright light made that statement regarding your Interstate, little did he realize that the idiot he was describing was himself.

Leaving badges on your Interstate can lead to some interesting conversations. Last year while parked near Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC an elderly couple in a Cadillac pulled up behind me. As I got out they asked: When did Airstream buy Mercedes?

More often I get, "I didn't know Mercedes made motorhomes!"
