Don't have any hidden names but the factory floor covering guy left a permanent bootprint, in glue, by our entrance door and it won't clean off after five years of ownership!!

Very Cool

I love our Airstream, because of the history of the company, the people who have owned Airstreams, and especially the myths, legends, and truths surrounding the brand.

I would like to think that true craftsman work at Airstream then and now and take pride in there efforts, even too the point of signing there work..

I think that is why the older Airstreams have value they do.. The balance point I have noticed when we were looking at every AS for sale in a 500 mile area was around 1970 to 1972 when the fit seemed to slip back a level from the 60s models..

Now the 2011 model we looked at this winter at the RV show in Kansas City was just super.. Anyway from a walk in and around.. I would have wanted to pop open some side doors and look in to see what was found there but was so much out of my price range I did not want to make the salesman upset..

I have a new AS so I don't think I'll take anything apart to look for signatures. On large commercial construction sites it is traditional for everybody to sign the last beam or column before the area is closed in. It's also traditional for the ironworkers to flag the top beam. In Seattle anyway. My Mom died a couple of months ago and I was down in her basement cleaning out some old clothes and I found a pencil inscription from myslf from 1966. I was jst a kid and don't even remember doing it. People that build things with their hands are generally proud of their abilities and like the recognition. I've met some amazing craftsman.

Hope is not a plan.
