Maybe it was a warm day in February...
All I know is what I was told by a mucky-muck at Airstream, and it made sense. I didn't go out on the lot looking at production dates, though it might not be a bad idea to do that tomorrow.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

One thing thats not happening with the Classic, the Rice Krispies effect.

With the 63 Safari we had that snap, crackle and pop every morning as old Sol rose above the horizon. No waves in the skin, but she was very vocal as the new day started.

I can understand the concerns others have though, it sure don't look good to see shiny wavy Airstreams.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Just a thought. Thermo expansion and contraction the grearest force known to man/woman.

Alum. will expand aprox. 1/8" in 10ft with 100deg. change.

It will move under the temp change.

got to love it.

Be Safe
