You know this is one thing my wife and I don't like about the AS. I have been told, no more tours! especially in the mornings.
In Dec we had a block Christmas get together to meet our neighbors we dont know and all asked if we were the people that owned the Airstream. People notice.

I think it is the Shape--we had a Casita 16' and could never get out of the gas stations, rest areas or campgrounds without tours. The same is true for our Airsteam, but since it is so much bigger (31') I think some folks are intimidated to ask for a peek. We are still new to our AS (had her less than a year) so still enjoy showing her off.

yep, everywhere we go we even were blocked in by a women in DC that wanted a tour. beeping the horn acting like a crazy person and i was thinking what the heck is going on. She got out of her truck and said where did you get that? where can i find one? can i look inside. wow it's bigger than i thought. then of course we were on our way to FL and my husband who has no patience is like tour over gotta go!.but, every campground we go and every gas station, or tractor pull (yeah i know sounds corny!) they are like where did that come from. like some spaceship.i have to look around and make sure i'm not in area 51. so they do create alot of stir. and it does even make the family green with envy! we bought ours then my sister-in-law bought a home made one. like they say if you have one it's money in the bank!

Someone mentioned the "Squeeks and Rattles of a Motorhome"...

When I went to Kansa to pick up my 1984 Airstream 345 Motor home in 2010, the PO came to pick us up in a year old 25' Class C Tioga, and we drove 3 hours to see the Airstream.
After we had completed the deal, and set off for California in the Airstream, with no prompting, my buddy suddenly said..
"You know what, this thing is 26 years old, and has 75k miles on it, yet it feels better put together than that class C, rides better, and squeeks and rattles less!"
