Anyone know if this is fact or fiction?
That would be Fiction.
I have heard alot of myths and misinformation in my Airstreaming.
One man with a 66 Overlander that he had had for 10 years told me ' "this Airstream was the only year to have aluminum skinned interior walls".
I have been told a bunch of times that Airstreams never leak.
I have been told I will never find an Airstream to buy.
I have been told that they saw on TV that Airstreams sold for over $200.000.00 for vintage models, since I had seven at the time I told them I needed some quick cash so I would sell them one for half that.
I constantly hear " They Were the Cadillac of campers"
" Do they still make them"?
"They dont make those anymore"
"There are clubs for those things"
One guy told me the other day that his was really rare as the exterior skin on his Airstream was much thinner than any other model of Airstream.
I heard from a couple that Airstreams had an Aluminum frame if they had Aluminum wheels as an option, Cool!
I have heard that Airstreams are so light you can tow them with a VW Beetle.
I heard that Airstreams were made of stainless steel, That is a myth , but it would be really cool!
