Here is a picture of me taking a picture of the license holder on a BRAND NEW Safari on a dealerís lot a few years back.
It will show you that AIRSTREAM is not perfect and there is room for improvement.
On the other hand, all things are relative. Compared to other RVís out there AIRSTREAM is still many, many cuts above the rest.
It is the best trailer made, with the added bonus of its iconic stature and great design.
I bought my ARGOSY when it was 30 years old. Because I did a total remake of the trailer the entire belly pan was removed in stage one of my project. I was pleased to find that there was basically no rust on the frame at all, except for some atmospheric rust dust here and there. Much of the frame had the blue-black look of steel just out of the factory.
So, if you hear some horror stories about frame rust, and there are those, they need to be balanced with examples like mine, of which there must also be some as well.
