It's good to see an export instead of an import!

My eastern languages expert son tells me that the kanji translate exactly as "Flying Cloud." Whaddya' know about that?

Should we send them the kanji for "they all leak eventually"?

Chinese Airstream

I bet they copy it and start selling them first in UK and Germany with little to no import tax,then start selling them in the states.The prices will be half.
the quality will be about the same.Which is sad on two points....
are there any patents owned by airstream other than the name ?
