Common Interests

I agree with the general thought we are all bound together by the incredible design and heritage of Airstreams.

My funniest campground story happened when I had to live in my 79 International at Lowes Motor Speedway while I was waiting for my family to be able to join me in Charlotte. Except for semi-annual NASCAR races the campground was mostly filled with full-timers.

When I pulled in for my first night, I found out my gas water heater wasn't working so I went out to fix it. A couple of people came over to "help". One person was smoking and the other had a mason jar of shine.

Good intentions+bad judgement = me taking a cold shower that night.

I think the AS bring us to speak with so many people I would be surprised if we could be tagged "snob".

Though I have to say that I love to see another AS in a campground and spend time talking about them... but I was never lucky enough to meet another forum member... sad.

So not Snob but I would say "concern"

Thinking back to high school, it seemed to always be the prettiest girls who were labeled "snobs", even if they were actually kind, sweet people.

So I wonder if jealousy doesn't play some role in landing us with the undeserved label of snobbery.

Invite them over for champagne and caviar, that will show them who is a snob! Ha ha ha ha ha.

Then explain that your Cayman Islands trust leases it from your Lichtenstein corporation through your Swiss bank, resulting in a perpetual tax loss carry forward for your Delaware corporation.

The real expense is having all that aluminum polished by topless bikini models!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

When we were in ZION last weekend my wife called me a snob... As we walked by a huge fifth wheel the dad was outside washing his kids with the hose... Come on It's a huge fifth wheel...

I said " man doesn't' that big fancy thing have a shower in it like mine" jokingly of course. He said he didn't want to fill up the grey tanks... My wife said I was being a snob.... I let my kids shower inside... Guess I'm a snob...

But I do talk to the SOB's next to me.. Mostly the older retired folks as they are friendly and like to talk most of the time... But yes I do go and talk to the other AS owners or they stop by and talk to me....It fun...

I tried that one but since I was cooking a hot dog and drinking domestic beer. I don't think they bought it.

Everyone harbors a secret hatred for the prettiest girl in the room--Ani

I believe this translates to Airstreams and campgrounds.

I think one reason for this type thinking is the rarity that you find the airstreams. My wife and I drove from my home town to Carolina beach NC (200 miles) and I bet her that we would see a Airstrem on the road. I lost 5 dollars.
Double or nothing on the way home lost me another fiver.
So it only makes you glade when you do see one.
Take care
Jerry

It's kind of like Harley's and Corvette's and other unique products, it's a brotherhood. I don't think we are called snobs. Take a look at my pictures, most people are just surprised it can still make it to the campground. I've been thinking about putting a donation pot in front of the camper to get donations. "Give money or I'll keep bringing this mess here every weekend!!!"

I couldn't help but chime in on this one. I feel a strong need for diversity. My wife and I are bikers too. We road Jap bikes, and now a HD. We are welcome at all bike events. Never was there a snob in my mind other than the hot cheerleader in school. As a child 30yrs or so ago, my neighbor rolled up in this shiny new AS. He couldn't help but hollar at Dad to "come check out my new toy". It was a beauty. All the years growing up until recently have been checkin out SOB's and just didn't find the WOW factor. Now at 38, I have this 1970 AS and in the process of getting it road ready and can't wait for someone to give me the WOW factor (positive comliments) that the neighbor got. I just don't see the longevity in the SOB's or even a new AS. The point is, all bikers crave the wind in our hair, despite what we ride, and all RV'rs crave the freedom to stop anywhere we want. The difference is, it is a solid groung for longevity, and pride in USA. We seek out common interest. The AS always looked like an airplane to me, and I always wanted to be a pilot. Now can't wait to fly my own BIRD soon.
Adam

Back in July, I was camping at a campground in Indianapolis, when someone knocked on my door and asked about my tow dolly. Turns out she'd just bought a camper and had gotten the same brand of tow dolly, so she wondered if I had any pointers.

Are we tow dolly snobs because we didn't talk to the other motorhome there with a different dolly? No, of course not. As has been said a couple times, it's just a common interest thing.

There was a couple there with their Airstream, and they swung by one evening and we chatted for a bit. I talked to a couple other people in the campground, too, and I almost always do.

Am I an AS snob? Are you?!

I don't have an airstream yet!...but I don't think your an airstream snob....It's like everything...your attracted to what your interested in...I know I always get excited when I see an AS, as compared to SOB. Same thing happened when I got my Toyota FJ...wanted to socialize with others who had them....You like what you like and if that makes someone a snob...so be it. Hubby and I tend to have different interest than most people in our area...so it's always nice to find someone who thinks on the same wave levels as we do.
