We did a quick look at the trailer, but didn't see anything. When we got home I saw a dent on the side panel. It took a lot to get them to pay for that. They offered to replace the panel, but we had learned our lesson and wouldn't take it back there. Eventually we settled and got some cash.

The only way they wouldn't know about this was either a customer hit it and didn't report it, or an employee hit and and didn't report it. I hope your experience is better than ours.

Gene, ouch! I think the problem is the fact the motorhomes and Fifth-wheels are getting bigger and bigger; the inventory is out-sizing the dealer lots.

Sorry that your incident was such a PITA. The dealership never phoned back, so I guess they don't have any issues with my claim. I'll deal with it in the spring.

From personal experience, "Drunk as a sailor" was a true statement as I resembled that comment more than once.

They Really "Landed it" This Time!

When was the last time a corporate spiel made you laugh and cry?

I absolutely loved this....and I think you will too.

If I lived in their region, I'd fly them just because of the wonderful Christmas surprise they gave to their obviously appreciative customers. Thanks for posting such a positive video clip.

Hey FaN, you should be getting a check from the Canadian Tourist Registry.
You have been posting a lot of good information about your travels, and now this one on the airline with a heart for their customers, you could be bringing in tourist dollars by the handful.

You're very welcome, Dennis.

lol! I don't know about that cheque, but would be very happy with one of those holiday tickets WJ was passing out. I wouldn't mind a bit of Irish blarney - they are about to tackle their first trans-Atlantic route - Toronto to Dublin.

I think we all enjoy reading about everyone's Airstream adventures; we are great travel ambassadors!

That was really great. I am usually pretty jaded about such things, but that was clever, generous and just well done at every level. Thanks for posting that, it's my favorite Christmas shtick of this season!

Hi, should have asked for a big screen TV instead of underwear and socks.

I believe they mentioned that on the blooper reel.
