Maybe they just want to go camping with them. Good for Airstream to add China to their exports.

Co-worker translated to Flying Cloud, but using a character for flying that was for Tiawan, not the newer, simpler character in use elsewhere. Still neat to see.

China is about two years away from wage parity with the US. Meaning, it will be as expensive to produce in China as it is in, for example, Arkansas.

If they would have wanted to copy trailers, they would have done it by now.

Is that why China does not have a Disneyland -
no one is tall enough for the rides?
