Maggie, truly appreciate the support and enthusiasm from you and others.

I would like to say more, but I do not want to breech the forum's no-advertising policy.

Our little company has been invited to participate in the Oscar-week celebrity gifting room promo. It is not considered a celebrity endorsement, but we are allowed to take photos of the celeb with the product. (BTW, we were told that few A-listers show up - they send their personal assistants - but a few well-knowns are expected). Trust my no-holes-barred assistant George to describe it as "pimping the product!"

Anyway, when the promo is over, like any winter-wary Canadian, we are going to see a few sights and catch a few rays.

Holy Crop! - What a Lower Cdn $ Looks Like at the Dealership

Dropped into the dealership today to see if the new window was in.

It wasn't.

So, decided to take a lookey-loo at some of the 2015s peppering the lot. Lo and behold, when I spotted an Airstream Interstate, I made a beeline over because I have never seen one in person.

Very nice unit with the leather seats, ship-deck flooring, and other bells and whistles. The price: "Marked down to $160,000!"

I didn't look at the new Airstream trailers - lest I go into sticker shock.

This low Canadian dollar is not fun when you're shopping for a new American-made RV.

Sure am glad I bought when I did!

Hi, today we went to the Portland Auto Show; They had an Airstream display with one Interstate, one 19'er, one 23'er, and a 27'er. My wife agreed that the Interstate is very cramped and tight inside, but quite huge on the outside. The 27'er [two feet longer than our trailer] cost about three times what we paid for our trailer. We agreed to keep what we have.

Note: The Interstate was so expensive, I couldn't afford to take a picture of it.

What they're doing with the Interstates these days is ridiculous...IMO.

There must be a market out there for these hyper-tricked-up units, I guess, or Airstream wouldn't be making them.

I am very happy with our little luxury camper van....one little tv, two seats up front, rear lounge makes into a comfy bed.

Good enough for me, and all I need.

Interstate prices

For me, the concept is attractive, but, I think I would seek out a used Interstate, as this is IMO the type of vehicle which within a couple years is probably half of retail price. Thus, 20,000 miles, two years, maybe I could go with $80,000 or even less. Then a small trailer on the back with a motorcycle or scooter to get around...yeah, I could do this. Especially for short trips to some of the racing venues I attend, this could be attractive.

Now, where do i find one used at that price, and of course, in the colors and floor plan I expect.....?

Hi, my wife made the comment about the new Interstate having four seats in front, wasting all of that space. Two seats with a rear bed would be better. After all, it would best suit two people, at most, anyway.

MsMo, in Daytona red with a white stripe, hood scoop, and spoiler on the back so you can race it?

Robert, Yes. Two seats, four seats, or no seats at all - what matters is the fact Maggie loves, hers, and you love yours, and I love mine.....and so on.......

Oh, baby. What a wonderful world.

Aren't those "camels" in the ads dromedaries? Don't camels have one hump, not two? Maybe I have it reversed. Maybe they do.

The product—when do I get a test version?

Will you be on the red carpet? I can't stand awards shows, but I'd watch for that.

As for fixing cars years ago, don't forget the match book cover to set the points—just the right thickness for most cars.

One of my many character flaws is to want it my way......this means unused, white with gray interior, and for half price. Oh, yes, and I want it now. Without the wasteful extra set of seats😎

Hi, I was told to use a paper match stick for setting points. As poor as I was [and still am] I had a set of feeler gauges. A few times out on the road, I just used my eyes. I was challenged once and the dwell meter was dead on at 28 degrees. That eye sight is long gone.
