Chinese Made Airstreams

Hi,

I'm working on a University engineering project for an Airstream design with a basement and increased interior height, plus some elements borrowed from yacht and aircraft designs.

We came across new Airstreams being built in China. Have reached out to Airstream to ask if they have licensed builds in China.

Anyone ever seen one of these Chinese builds?

Those are all knock-off shells marketed as food trucks. Airstream does not build in China. They do however sell a few there via a couple of dealers, and Airstream would like to grow in Asia. Bob Wheeler said after a visit there a few years ago, he would not want to build them there. Also, there aren't campgrounds in China, some people have imported them as status symbols and they sit in the driveway.
