When Krazykraut first joined up and posted his photo's and then later a link to his website with the numerous photo's of his Airstream MH, MarilynW and I browsed thru them in wonder and amazement. We agreed that if we were looking for a new MH, that would be it. It was the first one we had ever seen. Just the right size for the two of us.

Her first comment was that if that type of composite material had been available when the Airstream's went from the kits to a full production trailer, that would have been what they would have been built from. As it was in the 30's & 40's, aluminum was the state of the art material of the day and aircraft construction was the method of choice for construction. And now today, modern materials and aircraft construction are still the method of choice for Airstream.

If I get over that way, I will expect a tour. He only lives about 20 minutes from me.

I repeat, its is not a personal matter at all.
That is the question I am asking you.

I am trying to find which SOB blueprints Thor used in the Airstream plant, although I would have thought that the Ford van example would have been enough to make my point.
Ron, what would that prove ? If Thor Corp. owned Airstream at the time the blueprints would have a reference to Thor Corp in the title block.

A Ford VAN, some grey paint, a big top, built in the plant, ET VOILA.... we just made a new Airstream.
Correct, now you got it.

Once again poking at things, not people.

Happy thanksgiving to all, and be safe on those icy roads .

Thanks Ron, I am in New Orleans my biggest worry is what level of sun screen to wear.

Ron, I must say I am glad you own a Airstream and feel so strongly about it that is where we have common ground.

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to the festival. That's pretty much what it's all about. Having a moter home, t.t., pop-up camper, tent - whatever, allows the owner to go places and do things that may not be possible otherwise.
Hubby took early retirement and we are hoping to have our own t.t. one day soon so we can see some of this wonderful country without going bankrupt doing it. (the stock market will take care of that part) So as far as brand names go . . . no matter what it is or where it came from, motor on and enjoy every minute you can.

ps your pics are great. what a nice coach you have !
