Sometimes when the door is left open, you just have to go in.

Unfortunately, first time buyers are left to the availability of inventory, and the distance they can/want to travel.

Airstream is making a marketing blunder (IMO, of course) by not having a representation of the most popular units, and the ability to show the perspective customer options available to that particular model.

They can increase their output, but without the educated consumer, sales will be considerably less than they could be.
But Murrey, this way they sold you and I two Airstreams each!

Thanks Rich. Hopefully mine won't be the one they use to train a bunch of new hires on. Guess I better do a visit to Jackson Center in a couple weeks for some added oversight.

You know you can do that. They allow you to watch yours being built. If you want to watch the whole thing (except dangerous areas) it takes 9 days and 300 man hours to complete. They welcome it.

Edit: I thought all looked well on the line. Happy workers having fun....that's always a good thing. Nothing like a hard economic time to put new perspective on work.

If Airstream would let you be the Quality Control inspector as you watched the unit being built it would be a benefit. Of course build time would double.

Wow, that's nearly ten times the production height at which Silver Streak used to run.

Anyone have an idea of how many Avion or Streamline TT's were built on average during their years of production?

I'm pleased to read that this premium TT is in demand at this level.
