That's me told off, then!

Anyway, allow me to ask this question before I disappear from this discussion… Why is it such a bad thing to start a new thread for a new topic, and a good thing to allow the thread to drift away from its original topic?

Bye bye!

Sheesh, a bit thin skinned aren't we? I started out my observations with "With all due respect to Protag", and meant no personal attack. I agree with others that you have offered invaluable info to this forum.

Just as you ask why is it so hard to start a new thread, all I asked is how hard is it to be tolerant of having additional information thrown into the mix? EVERYONE of the folks who offered their purchase info also complied with the original poster's request. How is that so bad ad why are you compelled to suppress the free offering of info from our fellow streamers? Are there such rules and are you the enforcer? If you choose not to divulge your purchase info thats your business.

Ron never qualified his original request so I like others feel free to discuss whatever comes to mind and I think I made a pretty good case for having relevance between miles and value, particularly since he asked what your initial mileage at acquisition was. I am curious what info Ron hoped to glean from such a conversation and how discussing value has a detriment to the conversation.

Lighten up guys, we're all airstreamers and we are here to share info not inhibit it.

Ignore the guy Protag, he's just trying to justify his incorrect position on this issue. I for one agree with you 100% that the closer the threads stick to the original topic the better for everyone.

2010 Model purchased new on 4/19/2010. Current ODO reading is 26,019. At the great risk of drifting too far astray of the original question and irritating someone; this amounts to 6500 miles per year. The Sprinter lives in Oregon and I live in AK; otherwise the miles would be higher.

We purchased ours in November 2011 with about 3,000 miles on it (dealer demo). It now has 26,500 miles on it. From Michigan we have traveled:
- most of Route 66
- Indy several times (daughter #1)
- Raleigh NC several times (daughter #2)
- 2012 Great Race: Michigan -> Ottawa & back
- 2013 Great Race: St. Paul MN -> Mobile AL & back
- 2013 Black Hills SD & back
plus a few runs to northern Michigan.

I love to drive our Interstate!

What can I say? We like to cruise, more so than extended stays at a campground. Plus, my wife loves having a 'take along bathroom' when we travel.

We bought our 2007 Interstate (2006 5 cyl Sprinter) used in April 2011 when it had 28,000 miles on it. Now three years later it has 62,000 miles and has been to the east coast and back several times. Had zero mechanical issues so far, have put 4 Michelins on it and just got back from a 45 day, 4,200 mile trip down to southern CA and AZ and towing our 4 x 6 closed utility trailer and got 21 mpg. Had a great time.
Have done several minor mods over time to improve an already very good design. Latest was adding a swing out shelf to the left of the sink which helps making washing the dishes so much easier and we splurged on a Dish Network Tailgater so now have every TV channel there is and everywhere.

Bought my 07 Interstate on the 06 chassis in April 13 with 32k, it now has 42k. Only extra service was an 02 sensor but what the heck, I had to replace one of those today on my wife's lexus. Pleased we were able to travel 10k miles our first year. Can't imagine how many miles a year we will travel once I unhook from work!!
