Is this normal????

Since getting our new 1989 29ft excella a couple of weeks ago, we've been able to already have a couple of weekends away in it. At about the end of the second weekend my wife started to refer to it as 'Alfie'. Now it seems 'Alfie' has a whole personality of his own, and what I thought was a few sheets of aluminum riveted together, is infact almost human. Now, that's fine to a point, but 'Alfie' is not perfect, his upholstery is not in the best of shape, especially on the cocktail chair. I suggested throwing the chair away and getting a new one, well, that didn't go down too well, apparently in our new humanized airstream that would be like ripping out one of his kidneys………
You've seen the stickers people have on their back windshields of the stick family, mom, dad, kids, dog, cat, does anyone know if there's a place I can buy a stick 'airstream' sticker, so we can have mom, dad, and 'Alfie'.
His clear coat is peeling a little as well, I'm a little nervous about getting it fixed incase I'm accused of skinning poor Alfie alive…...

Any sign maker with a vinyl cutter can make you any thing you can think of.

Search on Devoman here he does that type of work.

To answer your original question Dan: Yes, that's normal.

haha, they do kinda grow on you, if I dinged him reversing into a tight camping spot, I wouldn't know whether to take him to a repair shop, or rush him down to A&E...........
