"Dirty Jobs" show on Airstream Polishing?

Hey all,
I don't know if you ever watch "Dirty Jobs' on the Discovery Channel, but they are always asking for new dirty job ideas. I recently posted the idea of having host Mike Rowe do an episode on "Airstream Polishing" on the Dirty Jobs Show Ideas forum here:
Airstream Trailer Polisher - Topic Powered by eve community

If you think this is a good idea why don't you add a post over there to show support (you'll unfortunately have to sign up for their forum to do so, but it's relatively painless). If you have more information to support that polishing an Airstream is a dirty job, say so or provide a photo. If you can provide the names and contact information for other professional Airstream Polishers (besdie P&S Trailer out of Ohio), also do that. Let's get Airstreams featured on that show.

I saw the one with the guy giving a suppository to an elephant. Think I'll stick to polishing

It's some of the best TV on, even the reruns. I posted too. If more folks will post, we "streamers" may get luckly.

I gotta believe that's one guy who does not chew his nails.

I posted and told them that was a great idea for a show. Especially if they do it here in East Texas before November. That way he can get some of this good ol Texas heat and 147% humidity.
I also told them I knew where an AS trailer was if they needed one to polish for the show.

Ricky,

I just pulled the valves on both my gray and black tanks. Before doing that, I dumped two five gallon buckets of yuck water into the woods.

That is one DIRTY job! I'd rather polish two 34 footers than empty the yuckwater!

And no, I do NOT chew my nails

I too think it's a great idea.
I heard his next episode is posing as an undercover Minneapolis police officer with airport duty but polishing an Airstream is much dirtier.
