Like the song says....

If you change the lyrics just a bit....

To know, know, know them....

Is to love, love , love them.....

And I do.....

(Chorus) Yes, I do....

(I don't know the original artist from the 50's or 60's but the title of this Classic was "To Know Him" I believe)

RoadKingMoe took the words right out of my mouth. I have built a classic harley that I brought home in seven boxes and a frame. I feel the same way about my AS. She will be worth alot to some people when I'm done,but she will be priceless to me.

But really . If you have to convince them they just don't get it!!!!

Jim, it was the Teddy Bears, "To know him is to love him",and the producer was Phil Spector, IIRC. Why can't I remember important stuff? Nick

Public Affection

Here's my answer and I'm sticking to it...

I've never witnessed the owner of an SOB having at least 1 person approach them at a gas station, Wal-Mart, RV park or campground; to discuss their travel trailer. When we take our AS to any of the previously mentioned locations, there is ALWAYS at least 1 person who wants to talk about it.

Occassionally, I'm asked to provide a 'free tour.'

There is nothing like an Airstream.
I had a guy pull over and help me, even though I did need help, "because you had an Airstream".
Join a group you admire, help out a little and live well.

I have to second the person who said you just know when you see your trailer that you have to have it. When I saw the Argosy just in pictures for the first time, I was on the phone asking how much deposit the seller wanted. I still go out and sit in my Argosy and watch TV, and I see him when I leave for work every day. This trailer is a 1978 and in wonderful condition. The love affair continues. I look at new SOB trailers at the RV show. Then I come home and sit in my Argosy and know how lucky I am to have found him. This guy is a part of our family, a part of our fun, a part of our future retirement plans. My husband and I know for certain the this trailer will be here as long as we need it and nothing can go wrong that cannot be fixed, usually by us. Hope I didn't get too carried away, but those of us here on the forum know how this feels.

I also read somewhere (probably here):

If you're in a serious accident with an Airstream, it most likely gets hauled off with a tow truck.

If you're in a serious accident with an SOB, it most likely gets hauled away in a dump truck.

Or some variation of that. You get the spirit of the sentiment, though...

We had a very nice pop up for 17 years. We have had the Trade Wind less then a year. We have had more people want to take a look inside the Airstream then we did the pop up.
