Mixter, I just found my original '98's glossy brochure. Under the list of "features" they included, and I quote-- "thermal barrier between outer skin and structural ribs reduces temperature transfer to interior, improving insulation and allowing fewer exposed rivets". Unless they accidently left it off, my model should have the bonding tape.

On a recent visit to the Airstream webpage, regarding the bonding tape, they have added the phrase "increased strength" to the description. Ah, but they don't say for how long....
