Rodney,

It's just the effects of long 12 hour days in a truck with diesel fumes.

Hi, what else are you supposed to do if you own a Big Rig with nothing to haul and an old Airstream that probably needs axles?

I think that is way kool, told the manager of the marina, where I keep my boat, that if I sold boat, I would still like to keep my slip, and put an AS on a raft/floats, for summer cabin. Airstreams seem to be able to change into something usefull at any stage in life.

I don't know where this guy came up with that figure. I full-timed in a 40' Monaco Dynasty diesel pusher MoHo for 5 years and had the same Onan Quiet-Diesel 7500 watt diesel gen in the rig. At full blast running continuously, it never sucked down more than 1 gal/hour!!!!

Those don't look like stock axles to me!

It's not so much the idea itself that I think is proof of drug use... it's that opening bid that I think sums it up!!

granted, the price is too high. I drove a pete very much like that for years.the mpg was 4-5 hauling concrete. this rig might do 5 1/2 mpg because of the lighter load and 13 speed road ranger transmission. all I can say is if you ever drove a peterbuilt ,you would buy one.driving one for years,you get spoiled and if you love airstreams, this is cool, very old school.cudos to this dude!
