I doubt those Airstream Techs would have settled for hamburgers that the Apprentices supposedely picked up on the way to the warehouse. I bet a nice juicy contract stipulated that those Union guys got and nice dinner break and a Trump catered feast!

I watched the show. The best part was the shots of the airstreams, and the techs from airstreams. I could have thought of better uses for them, like taking them to the sarasota rally next week!!!
But they sure were pretty, weren't they?

I wiash Trump would give them to us!!!!


When people lie to you, and refuse to honor their word, don't regret trying to follow a dream, new adventures and friends await you.

Some info

I spent most of today with the Airstream Director of Quality at the Austin RV show. Five of us from our unit went to help out the dealer and fish for new unit members (we met a couple good prospects).

He said that the trailers were built with some partitions already fitted, so it probably wasn't too difficult to recover them with the chosen fabric and install them as wanted by the teams. Airstream was sworn to secrecy with a big financial penalty until the first teasers for the show were aired; then they were able to publicise the trailers. The techs were from the factory and had to work secretly until the trailers were out on the street.

We were showing a 22' CCD and a 16' Bambi. The CCD was the big hit with a couple of probable sales.
