And I'm having a really, really hard time narrowing it down to just 101 uses!

The person below me decorates eggs to look like Airstreams for Easter every year.

Yeah, I've found after two years of doing this that the trick is to use two axles instead of one on a pipe frame. To reduce weight I blow the eggs. I also got rid of the black and grey tanks. The decision to stop putting ACs on the eggs didn't come to me until just now. I'll be going with some nice Worthington tanks this year though. Electric hitch. Zip Dee. Super shiny.

The person below me never remembers their Airstream's birthday.

I do too! Both of them: Born in September 1963 and adopted on January 21st, 2002!

The last time the person below me left their campsite, they dangled their stinky slinky until the next pit stop...150 miles later!

It was too short. I had to make it longer somehow.

The person below me still uses a 4'-0" satellite dish to watch t v while stopping in rest areas.

I got it! OMG! My univolt is vintage '77 and that's the same year Margaritaville came out. My 4' Sat dish must somehow be tapped into Jimmy Buffet's recording studio. Now I can go to sleep zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

But before I do, I gotta tell ya 'bout the person below me. Fair warning though: We're talking PG13 here....

Once ... when they went camping ... they ... uh, forgot to put their stabilizers down.... And have you ever heard the phrase, "don't bother knockin' if it's rockin'"?

Nope, you have the story confused. That was A-Merry-Can, he COULDN't put the stabilizers down, and he DIDN'T want anyone knockin' cause it MIGHT start rockin'. See, I have prooof!

The person below me does pencil & paper rubbings of their Airstream's name plates and serial numbers then pastes them into a baby memory book.

Yeah...so

You say that like it is a BAD thing!?!!!

The person below me drinks decaf coffee, eats no-fat muffins, and leads the campground in "KumBaya" before retiring to their Tin Can to go over to the "dark side" of the AS Force!

The person below me plays Pink Floyd albums with a bent needle on an old phonograph while polishing their Airstream.

No, you got that one all wrong! It's Pat Metheny Group! Actually, I bought the albumn on ebay just because it has Airstreams on the cover! I've actually never listened to it...anybody have a record player I can borrow at the next rally?

The guy below me, proudly tattoo'd his WBCCI number in red on his chrome dome head...it was the least he could do, his wife dyed her hair gray to match their Airstream and he didn't want her showing him up at the next rally!

and a margarita ball. Just the rally essentials.

The person below me crocheted a cover for their Airstream out of marine toilet paper.

I like to keep my baby warm at night.

I thought you replaced the coffee maker with the Margy Ball.

The person below me forgot to install closets when they "restored" their Airstream.
