Backwards is not that pretty

OK, I know, we all love the new site. But how long are we going to keep a picture of an Airstream on the top of our forums that is reversed. Come on, we have all seen it, don't be hatin' me for sayin' it.

I have a feeling that a picture of an Airstream that actually has the door and awning on the curb side would also be appealing. Time to change it Oh Wizards of the Site, time to change..

I have a suggestion, the forum can use this pic for free.

Perhaps it's a British Airstream?
Perhaps the "Wizards of the site" are British?
Perhaps it's a front bedroom with the tail lights and license on the wrong end?
Perhaps we should just get a mirror?
Perhaps a couple of double Manhattans straight up and forget it?

It does look a bit strange.

Maybe someone is trying to us that there is always 2 sides to every story?

Yes, very tired of it, and it annoys me each time I see it, because of the reversal only.

Hey. The picture is perfect. I have posted this before, but what you are actually looking at is the image of a Bambi in front of the ocean, but as seen in the reflection on the side of a well-polished, vintage Airstream.

So you've got new and old in the same photograph.

OK - I have a complaint - There is a MoHo in the lead of this caravan of Airstreams. To a traditionalist like me that just can't be.

And now for the flames to begin..... I'll start my own thread...... Is that a brick headed my way?
