It is not how big it. It is how you use it.

I had a Maserati Mistral coupe around 1967/8 which had an aluminum body (some were also made with steel bodies). It also had dual spark plugs on a straight six so there would be no miss fires at high rpms to dimple the hood.

Please note that I'm chuckeling at your very "sutle" sexist hunour, but it does bring up the question........

Even if you know how to handle your 17' Bambi II, does your wife sigh when she sees a 31' or gasp at the 34's?

No wife, just a cat. All she worries about is getting enough sleep and her snacks. I will admite to having a bit of lust for a 23.

Just for the record, the front one piece caps on the Airstream Classic motorhomes are made from Aluminum.

LOL I've found that out as when I bought my 310 it had a huge dent in the front cap from a PO attaching the awning. The P&S guys in Ohio did manage to pull most of it out but a major snowstorm of wet heavy snow and me brushing it off has some of the dent back. I'm going to purchase an air powered dent puller and the adhesive kind to see if I can get it all out this summer. VERY THIN aluminum.

PS Talked to John about the window and he's just fine bringing back for me. PM me about the $ and availability.

Cheers
Tony
