I've always admired the Airstream and when I start planning on owning an RV it was my first search (and I found this wonderful forum) at the same time. I love the exterior silver bullet look and all that, but when push comes to shove do I want a wood floor that appears to univerally rot? For less money I can own an Element. Would I? I don't know I'm still two years from that, but AS cache can only carry it so far as a buyer. I absolutely plan to see first hand the Element for a real look see and when I do I'll report my impressions. Another irritant is the AS website. Very poor in detailed information that today's internet buyers would want to know. Visit both and you'll understand what I mean (Evergreen Recreational Vehicles - Manufacturer of Green Eco-Friendly Travel Trailers and Fifth Wheels
). AS has a 1950
floor and a 1970 website, somehow not surprising.
Don't get me wrong, I WANT THE AIRSTREAM to be BETTER than it is and I know it COULD be! It's just hard to understand how AS can see all the common problems posted on this forum, and not address them.
