I will check out the other places as well.

Fortunately I have a brother in-law who is forever indebted to me so the extra person won't be hard to come by

I just inquired about a 2005 Classic and the seller told me that it was in the shop having some windows sealed up . It has two vista windows in the front as well as the others . I thought was a bit new to need sealing in this area but what do I know I have a 1983 and that one doesn't leak . Are the newer Air Streams more prone to leaks ? He told me it needed special I suspect Vulcrum & Parbond . What can anyone tell me about the newer Air Streams and leaks ?

Hi Ed, Andy R (Andy R)is the owner of Airforums and Andy from Inland RV Center, Inc. is a helpful Commercial Member.

It's a common misconception.

Lee,
No misconception on my part! Andy R. from InlandRv is Andy Rogozinski the owner. It just so happens that another Andy R. is the owner of the Forums! So... my statement was not in error. Happy Trails, Ed
