Umm... Congratulations... You know, one of these things is too many, and two aren't enough.
Just don't park 'em too close together, you might end up with a couple more...

Looks like it happened...

Continuing dragging everybody down this path, kicking and screaming...
A few weeks ago, a relatively rare 1973 Sovereign came into the shop for some extensive repairs. It is rare because it is a rear bedroom model. A guess would be 95+% of them came with rear baths. It's been residing in the shop ever since, getting floors, air conditioning, axles, awning, and other updates.
It seems the Sovereign was expecting, though there was no evidence of this.
Yesterday morning, I was surprised to find an even rarer 1973 Ambassador rear bedroom in the stall next to the Sovereign. You can tell they are both rear bedrooms because of the bedroom window location at the rear, where the bathtub would be on a rear bath model. Both Airstream and baby are doing well...
