"flip"??? did you say "flip the airstream" ?? GASP! (2nd) GASP!
Perish the thought, mon frere! 3 grand for a mostly-original GLOBETROTTER!!! ARGH! buy it! DO NOT SELL IT! keep it. repair it. love it. devote yourself to it. commit to it. why? you ask... I'll tell you in one word. The word is "vessel". right. VESSEL. the same word sailors and pilots use to describe their vehicles. but in this case not only is your vessel used to transport you to exotic locales in style and comfort, it is the "vessel" in which you create and hold your DREAMS. ("dang how often does this dude get high in his trailer?" you're wondering.. hahahahaaaa...no, I quit a long time ago...)
but seriously: you haven't been infected with the aluminitus virus yet, but if you do you won't be able to flip it. it will make YOU flip... hard to articulate this stuff, really, but when you get hit with the bug it becomes much MORE than just a travel trailer. it becomes this semi-sacred vessel that you roam and dream in and you just can't imagine being without it...
thanks for the nice words about my pix, btw... yes, I print my own b/w for (hard to believe) 35 years now (my first darkroom was in '72 and started out as an excuse to make out with my then-girl, Penny...well I must have gotten carried away...) yes, I do all digital on the commercial side now, but still some 'fine-art' b/w type stuff. actually, one reason I got the AS was to have a mobile studio/shop ala Irving Penn's "World's In a Small Room" (my fave photo book)....now if I can just FINISH this dang bathroom!!
seriously, if the GT is mostly-cherry and outside dent' free, I'll drive to AZ and buy it myself!! I was going to get a GT before I found the Safari...
