If you search for threads with the word "quality" in them on this forum, you'll find some discussions on problems with new Airstreams. There are complaints of some lackluster finish quality and filiform corrosion around the rivets, among other things. I know that some of the new ASs I looked at had worse cabinetry and trim finish than my T@B.

Unlike automobiles, where the level of quality and finish nearly approaches perfection, RVs fall quite a bit short of that level. Personally, if I were spending a lot more on a trailer than my Argosy, I'd buy a used one that was a few years old. (I did that with the T@B.) Let someone else work out the initial bugs and take the big depreciation hit.
