Aluminum Frame

Thanks Andy and mark.

That is kind of what I thought. Just didn't know for sure. I have looked at aluminum boat trailers and they are always much beefier than thier steel counterparts. How about Titanium? Maybe a carbon fiber titanium composite frame with a anti-gravity hover axle. I will think about that next time I rebuild the Airstream in 2050.

Patience is a virtue, and I have no time for impatient people.

carbon fiber?

I think by 2050 frames will be made of buckyball (C60 - buckminster fullerene).

But then, back in 1969 we all thought there would be permanent colonies on the moon by 2004.

Well just came back from working on the airstream today, and I have discovered rot at all the predicted places, and ain't too happy.

We knew there was rot, but didn't think it was too bad. I thought I could use some of my old house restoration techniques to fix it. No such luck.

My bath was complete, in good condition, and I don't want to do a shell-off. So now I need to find out what order to remove the bath fixtures and how. Big bummer, but from what I have read, I am not alone.

So here is to re-reading everything.
