Once a person smells Airstream aluminum, they are hooked for life.

I was hoping to hear there there is a vaccine or something out there. Now I know I search in vain. Kind of feels good though

I am twice as crazy as my husband about the AS. I can see this and that happening or maybe a little hutch over here, or a new dinette, or a really cool Ren theme...or....he tells me to quit thinking for awhile. He's doing the majority of the work and I am the assistant. He tells me to run and get this tool, those rivets, that ladder, etc. and I trot off. I did put new gasket on three windows before the winter set in though.

I have even taken to looking at the AS classified because I have more ideas than I have trailers. I would love to find a little Bambi close to ND to pick up. Maybe that can only be a dream at this point...doesn't cost to dream does it?
Sign me off as nuts about aluminum......

If you are abnomal at 3 I hate to think of my diagnosis. We bought #1 in September 2006, and have owned 7 since that day. Currently airstreamless , but looking at #8 prospectively.

Tell the wife you're switching to a vintage V-tail Bonanza (Beechcraft). With a custom-balanced MATTITUCK engine. And new HARTZELL prop. OREGON AERO interior. New KING avionics. She'll rotate anti-clockwise a week . . . .

You are going to be the king of AS!! Wow, that is a lot. I hope to get at least four....one for each of the kids. We will leave them all a little happier knowing they can continue our insanity long after we are gone.

Where do you find yours?

There's something about an Airstream that just draws you in. We have a 1975 Argosy, and it has been a wonderful addition to our family. It lets us spend quality time with our teenage son, and there's always a fun project for us to work on together. We managed to talk our good friends into buying an Airstream as well - so now we can work on projects with them, too! And they look so cool parked next to each other in the campground!

Obsessed? No - you've just come to your senses like the rest of us!

OREGON AERO - wow.

What a great company.

Sitting on one of their fantastic seat cushions, which I wouldn't leave home without, allows me to drive for hours without discomfort.

I remember sending the first one back after asking them to add a little more taper to the front edge, which they did not just willing, but to my total satisfaction.

I think because it's not just about camping, it's about Airstreaming. It invites a little bit of glamour into the experience of going all of these places. It's not like RV'ing. It certainly isn't like tent camping and you never say that you have a "camper". You can make your favorite pasta dinner and serve it up on nice plates, etc. Now, you can do that in a camper, but it ain't the same!

There's a lot worse things you could be obsessed with if you get my drift. And as a professional musician I think you do.

I'm afraid you're not the only one who is obsessed (yes, you are). I had leftover aluminum colored paint from my hitch & thought I'd bring the silver inside. My workbench is now silver, but is always a reminder of my beloved AS. So sad, but true.
