Jay would look good in a 16' Bambi ... But I suspect he is interested in something a bit larger ... However, whatever his choice, he will look great in silver.

Personally, this video was painful to watch. Between the mispronunciations and lack of basic knowledge, I felt like this was just for show. It doesn't appear that Jay has any sort of true interest in this trailer...other than just saying he owns an Airstream. Whoop-de-doo.

I like the ducted, presumably quiet air conditioning, but it appears that might eliminate the skylights and vents... I guess I'll be happy with my skylights and vents.

Ducted air would be nice. Seems like it would lower the ceiling height, though. My "domestic" roof airs are LOUD. My previous SOB trailer had ducted air and it was quiter. I assumed ducted air wasn't possible in an Airstream because I thought there was only about an inch between inner skin and outer skin. Looks like they lowered the ceiling height to make it possible in the Land Yacht. Maybe duct the living room air from front skylight to bathroom skylight and duct the bedroom air from the bathroom skylight to the rear of the trailer.

I'm all about some skylights. I am lying here now looking at a beautiful full moon through the skylight.

The ductwork could go around the skylights. It doesn't have to go in a straight line right up the center. It wasn't just in the middle in my SOB trailer.

I think the Land Yacht is a good start as it sits. Sure, it's mostly cosmetic luxury, but with a few iterations, I am sure it will become more than what it is at the first intro.

I think it's a smart move to have a top-end luxury product to draw attention, and create opportunities for more exposure. It's not like they discontinued the FC or Sport. I saw a few things I really liked. The powered Zip Dee is great. I've never understood why the thing is manual and takes ox-like strength to open. Likewise, the power table may seem silly at first, but come try making out 2012 FC table into a bed before laughing. I'd have paid more for that kind of table!

As for Jay, he is the most underwhelming personality or celebrity I can think of. He seemed more dopey than usual, but so what.

Keep pushing on the margins Bob!

Maybe that comes from all those interviews he does with folks on the street :-)
