PeterH is right. You can't "inspect in" quality, it has to be built in by the designers, craftsmen, even the guy who sweeps the floors. The best quality system has no inspectors, because each worker is an inspector.
This is not the tradition in the RV insudtry, but it sure works in other industries.

....take the plant tour and decide for yourself...I did and came to the conclusion-If I get another trailer-I'll build my own interior. The glitz that A/S adds makes me sick...not necessary-cheap materials-poor design-and just too UGLY...I hope I don't get as ugly as my A/S by using it to camp....that's why I rebuilt it!.....geof-near Cincinnati

Just to back up what DTBW has mentioned about the new Director of QC at Airstream. We met him in Vermont at the International. He spent about an hour in our '72 Sovereign talking with us about our 'stream and what we've done to it, fixed, etc. We watched the VAC DVD on how Airstreams were made back in the '69-'70 era and he explained how and why things are done differently today.

He is extremely knowledgeable about things, but is also a genuinely nice guy! If anyone can turn things around with Airstream's production, it's Rob. He's a real go-getter with down-to-earth people skills who wants to listen and learn from our experiences. I have a lot of confidence in him. I think if you got to meet him, you'd probably agree.
