Dent revisited

The comfort and design has extended our Airstreaming ways now that we are going into our 80's. No matter what the price point is of anything you buy these days, you will have "issues". I give thanks to those above who have offered solutions to avoid damage. Perhaps a new Classic buyer will heed them before they occur.
Thank you for pointing out other issues (outside step and sofa drawer) that we've also encountered.

ANYWAY, folks, I have to issue a sincere apology to all. For after researching the dented refrigerator door issue, I've come to the conclusion that the ONLY way it occurred was for the door to swing violently wide open and then close with a resounding click during a bumpy stretch of highway (hiding evidence of how it occurred.) I also realized that I tend to load up the door shelves with a lot of heavy bottles--my bad! BTW, I've entered the trailer on another occasion and found the main TV completely swung out over the table-- and I know I had it latched securely.

So, the point of all this lamentation is to say that things happen and there are bumps on the road of trailer life. I'm sucking it in and taking responsibility and declaring our love for our new Classic.

Buy one, you'll never regret it.

YFS, David
