I really enjoyed the base camp interview so I know I'm going to love this one. Understanding the trends and the target groups' priorities show just how the incorporated features are valuable and thought out to the finest detail. I learn not only about Airstream units but also discover myself along the way. You don't have to be in line to purchase one to appreciate all the information presented. It's thought provoking material. These behind the scenes looks are wonderful to be let in on the real skinny of how these models come together, before, during and after production. Thanks for hours of education and enjoyment.
