5 to 3 odds you still won't find that leak!

That warranty applies to models that have no windows, doors, seams, or rivets. A very limited edition from what I recall.

I guess they better expand they're shop and enlarge there parking lot to 300 acres and have police on full time to direct traffic to accommodate all them airstreams from 1935-2015 since 70 % are still on the road the other 30% will come in on flat bed tow trucks they might find a parking spot in there 300 acre lot.

I love it when people at campgrounds and others come up and say I'm lucky to have a a trailer like that because Airstreams don't leak. I had one guy buying some starter bee hives from me go on and on about an Airstream his brother had. He was somehow able to say about 30 things that were completely wrong in about 5 minutes, and did so with the authority in his voice as if he invented the trailer. It's really amazing sometimes. Every time it rains hard I'm out in the trailer seeing if there's a leak that I missed.

It like a boat. Life is grand until water gets on the wrong side of the aluminum.

The fine print say's if you hit a chuck hole or use W/D the warranty is void and null.

Are you saying water is supposed to be ''outside'' the boat?

Everyone thinks that though- that Airstreams don't leak-
Even the guy at the gas station admiring it while you're pumping gas-
That's one of the first comments everyone makes- Who told them that? Why do they think that? I just tell them, "Yes, They leak. The still have cut-outs for doors, windows, a/c units, fans, etc. They still have seams." Maybe the YouTube video of the rain test at the factory has people thinking that, but the general, non-Airstream-owning public seems to think that.

If we were all really smart we'd cut channels and drains into the subfloor and be done with it.

Good to see you still have your sense of humour Dean.

Cheers

The sign of a good mariner, and a good Airstreamer, is one that keeps most of the water outside the ship.
