Photos of your girlfriends rear end and frame damage would help determine what/which should be replaced

Dave,

It took me 45 years to find Barb, well, actually less since I didn't start looking until I was 6, so 39 years. There was a lot of fun in that 39 year search, but none of them were the right one. So, you have to think this through…

Is the dislike of Airstreams a character flaw and if so, is it a major or minor one?

What is the hidden message in damaging the Airstream while causing even more damage to the SOB?

Would the difference in design preferences carry over to houses? Would she like a tract home while you like a custom home, for example?

What are the chances of finding another girlfriend out of the three billion plus females in the world?

Does she like mandolins?

Is Ms. Tin Hut available?

Gene

Alumates

I've been attracted to Airstreams since the early 60's - my mom & I kept after my dad to trade in the '57 16' Shasta for a Bambi! Dad kept mumbling something about $$ that was beyond the scope of my 10 year old mind at the time. Yet, mom & I kept lusting after those sleek trailers with true inside plumbing!
My husband & his dad purchased, in the early 70's (before we met), a 31' Sovereign for traveling with their fledgling computer business.

So, early on in the marriage, when we both got that "gleam" in our eyes that it was time to go for a trailer, it was a 66 Overlander! Thirty years later (this month). through all kinds of weather, repairs, and 5 Airstreams later, we're still together in the Airstream!

So, hang in there Dave - there are "alumates" out there!

Four Airstreams, one honey. 32 years of marrige; some potholes, but that's life. There's the old joke about why there are so many RV rigs for sale in Arizona; it was not that anyone died; it was they realized that being together 24-7 sucked!

Be thankful for: 1) minimal damage to your Airstream, and, 2) you haven't "tied the knot" yet..........my vote is for a new girlfriend; one who won't ignore your warnings!!

Not everyone gets my sense of humor.....

I really have to post a picture of the reflector. It's pretty darn massive, as in, I wouldn't want it to drop on my foot. ( ha ha ) That was my message.

Yeah, I could never find another woman like my lady. Yeah, stuff is just stuff. It's just that some stuff is better than other stuff. Just like my reflector is better than her motor home ( ha ha )

to Gene: She much prefers my guitar playing to my mandolin playing. I much prefer my reflector to a rattle trap SOB. ( again ha ha )

My Airstream never told me I did'nt know where I was going. Dos'nt complain about the dog on her couch. Seems to like the guys staying a couple days to go fishing. Never mentioned the emptys on the counter, or scoulded about cigar smoke. Has'nt a clue when our aniversery is and seems just fine when I have'nt be around a couple weeks. Oddly shes the same weight and shape as when we first met! Now I'm gonna push reply and run for the tall grass!
