So that's how they make them????

Nice program, BUT, there is far more to it than they could possibly show in 5 minutes. What was shown, was, in my opinion, very nice.

It would be nice for a short movie, showing many of the little details, such as how the furniture is made and installed, a little more detail on how some of the other components are made, how they make the windows, how things are attached to the chassis while it's upside down, and many other things as well.

Maybe this summer I will make another trip to JC, and record some of the above, without of course showing any "tricks of the trade."

After writing down both dates in my calendar and wondering why I keep reading about it AFTER the fact, I find the YouTube entry and watched it. Thanks for posting, ASTROBOY - now to find an eraser for my calendar. Now we've seen it made, let's keep dreaming about using it - when all this %#**%#@ snow melts and the temps get back to something sensible. Happy 'Streamin to all!!

I'm SO with it, I saw this post & set the TV to show me the program . . . . . Then promptly slept thru the show.



I'll try to find out when the next showing is.

Please don't blame the narrator...I'm sure Airstream had something to do with the script.

It was interesting and well done, but short in length. I like that show...it's interesting to learn how things are made.

When we toured JC in November, there was no evidence that they still do this.

Anyone know if they do?
