I found this thread searching under "special edition"
I got curious after reading about the Norman Rockwell Edition.

Obviously no one answered Dragnfly. Can anyone shed light on the special edition history at Airstream?

Or link me to other similar threads please.

Thanks Sue

and what ever became of Dragonfly?

I found an earlier thread, questions having to do with the Bicentennial Norman Rockwell coach, but like me this individual did not get a reply either.

And I thought it was cause no body liked me ......of course that is still a possiblity, I, after all, did suggest using muratic acid as a metal prep as a substitute to more expensive gels and did get some strong words in opposition to that idea . I spoke out of turn.

Ok so back to the wieght thing.

I am assuming that the special edition means that more went into the suspension and other issues having to do with more weight in some airsteams (or not ?).

A pile of 3/4 inch oak wieghs a lot more than 3/16 (light wieght ply) and the solid 3/4 inch wood even more than that. It's installed throughout and solid surface counters adds substantially too does it not ?

Are brand new coaches made with solid wood and 3/4 ply. Does airstream use different suspension today ?

Is there anybody out there with one ?
