Here is something different - AS 5th Wheel

Noticed this AS for sale in local craigslist - can't say I've seen this before.

Man oh Man what to say to that

Well if he couldn't find one off the line, he made his own. Kinda homely, but kinda original I guess....

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhh.... not again. Didn't we beat this guy into submission the last time? He was asking a fortune for it and nobody was interested in it then.
Spring has sprung and he's listed it again.....

I gotta hand it to this guy. He is no quitter! Every time I firget about that unit it comes up for sale again.

You'd think he'd pull off the "addition" and finally sell it.

Many of us have seen this before. I think the seller wanted around 20K for it and if memory serves me, God had something to do with it.

I'd forgotten about the divine intervention.

I saw an ad for a real Airstream 5th wheel for 17K in the Blue Beret. So if you really want one go for the factory made one.*

*Never saw it. Don't know who's selling it. Won't make any money from it.

I think I saw it down at Traveler's Rest in Florida about seven years ago. Lots of good welding here. Lots of extra weight. Not the easiest way to get yourself a trailer that tows like you are using a Pullrite hitch.

WOW. I don't believe it! I found this picture while browsing old Central Indiana Unit photoalbums at a rally last year.

Not sure what year this was. Maybe early 80's if the trailer behind it was new then.

The Wally number's the same, but the hitch design is slightly different. The caption says the owners were from RI.

One thing's for sure, this trailer been around!

Oh dear me... this not only proves that someone can have a bad idea, but that they can make it a WORSE idea over time. The WBCCI numbers are the same, and looking at it, they've just added the storage boxes and reinforced the butt-ugly bracing above the tanks, possibly eliminating the square corner to allow the stone guard to be raised (like you'd like to look out of your window and see that hitch!) or to ease accessing the propane tanks and rear box.

Either way, it's enough to puke a mule. Some people have no sense of aesthetics. What a terrible thing to do to a perfectly inoffensive Airstream... Couldn't you botch up a SOB instead?

More than ONE word. It is not an attractive site. The Airstream is a super design. Don't try to change it.
