How bad have you got it?

I'm wondering if the advertising campaign for nascar's 'How bad have you got it?' came from an Airstreamer. Ever since I purchased my twinkie/distraction from other responsibilities/moneypit/classic airstream, I've been much more apt to turn the head when seeing Airstreams on the road or otherwise. Driving around town, I've seemed to notice more of them and thinking, 'hey, that's in really good condition', or 'wow, somebody missed a lot of dinners to get it that polished' Anyone else seem to be this distracted at times?

Hi, my name is Barry and I am addicted to Airstreams.

Totally distracted to the point of obsession. I suppose it could be worse, I could be in to drugs or gambling. Instead, I work on my Airstream and have aluminum running through my veins.

Truthfully, my girlfriend is really getting sick of hearing about my trailer, as are my kids, my parents, and a few others that I tend to spew information out to that could really care less. I think that the group AA should be changed to Airstreams Anonymous.

Thank God I have to satisfy my fix of information and pictures. Fortunately, I find it to be a healthy fixation. Not financially of course, but then again, I could be pining away for an '04 Airstream. (Still playing the FL Lottery!)

Yep .. I know exactly what you're saying.

I've been suffering from SAD ... Severe Airstream Distraction .. since the age of 7. Ever since I saw my first one heading down a highway in Wichita, Kansas .. I knew I wanted one and have been distracted by them all my life.

My obsession has driven Petunia crazy .. but now we are both eagerly waiting for our very first AS to arrive in January.

Until then, we'll keep spotting them out on the highway and talking about them. In fact, Petunia spotted one on the road this afternoon before I could ... first time that has happened. By George .. I think she's got it!

The wait is killing us.

Guilty your honor!

Guilty as charged of exhibiting syptoms of the money draining SAD Syndrome!

At the moment we're in deep withdrawal since our Titan is being fixed at the dealer, over 2 hours away!!!

To compensate we've been relieving ourselves of Benjamin Franklin's in the form of new blinds and many other accessories for our beloved.

COME BACK SOON!!!!!!!!!! :
