This actually happened on our last Bambi trip through our border crossing from BC to northern Idaho.

The horticultural agents were at the US customs station that day, so we had to pull over for them inspect us. Two big guys in full border patrol regalia looked inside the Bambi and started asking questions like, "I bet this tows really well." "How much does it weigh?" After ignoring our meagre cupboard of food staples and empty fridge, they continued to look around while we gave them a tour.

"Yeah, it sleeps four in a pinch. Here's the bathroom."

"That's really nice." Etc.

You know you're an extreme Airstream owner when you happily give U.S. border patrol agents a tour... and you all know they aren't there looking for contraband oranges. They never did look inside our truck.

Did they find the Canadian border jumpers hiding in the tanks, and between the bellypan and fame?

No, they got through OK.

Actually we once had another US border guard looking for illegal immigrants inside the Bambi. Apparently she mostly wanted to make sure they weren't snoozed out on the bed, as she didn't look inside the bathroom or the closet.

We sometimes suspect the customs officers mostly want a look-see inside.

When you are wearing an Airstream tie and someone says, "Look. His tie has campers on it." and my reply is, "Not just any camper..."

When you don't look at the sunset, but you look at the reflection of the sunset on your trailer or...
When after a drive through the whole campground full of Cass A motorhomes and fifth wheels and long, long trailers with slides your favorite rigs are a vintage Airstream and a Silver Streak.

When the first thing you do when you wake up is check email and you get excited when you see updates on who has posted on Airforums...

You might be an extreme Airstream owner if you watch a movie because it "stars" an Airstream trailer. This morning a watched part of "A Bird of the Air" just because the loner lives in an Airstream...

Wow, if the shoe fits . . . and it did (or, does).

What made it "extreme" is that this part wasn't even my idea (having been presented with a fait accompli).
