I'm with Steve. Renovating an old Airstream is the way to go (at least for us). We have the dramatic and stylish look of an Airstream. We have the mystique of a American icon. We'll have an interior...

As always, I think Gene has some thoughtful comments. I really don't know what Airstream execs are thinking. I do know that if I were working there and found out someone had put a McDonald's wrapper...
