How to kill a vacationing Airstream owner ...

.... just leave a message on her answering machine to confirm plans for her to pick up the '62 Bambi three weeks hence ... oh, but there's a "but" ... "I need to talk to you about something else. We've, uh, had golf-ball-size hail here in Texas and the Bambi, um, it, uh ..."

As my heart dropped into my stomach & bounced onto the floor, the PO continued to hem & haw but only because, it turns out, the little trailer is safe & sound in storage & the PO was bashful about asking for help with the storage fee.

I beg of you, those who buy & sell trailers, do not ever ever EVER start out an answering machine message with "hail" when what you really want to talk about is storage fees!!!!!!!!

We had a hail storm here, the end of last week. They were coming down in buckets, about the size of a nickel. Lucky for me the AS is parked in our woods so the trees protected it. I didn't find any dents from the hail. I do have to move it though, I don't want a tree coming down on it. I lost a tree a few weeks back, hugh tree but turned out it was hollow and snapped right off it a storm. I don't want to have to go through what campcollector went through.
