Marylin passed away the day before my dad did. My grief then was eased somewhat visualizing dad in the line of such company awaiting his admittance 'up there'. Sorry for hijacking but I often think of that memory.

Gaucho....a term made up out of thin air by Airstream because they knew if they named it a couch, or a bed, they would be liable for suite as it is really neither. (IMHO)

Or it may have come from the little Scotty Gaucho trailer made in the l960's. Sounds more likely.

Reading all the answers concerning a gaucho reminds me of listening to the mid-winter IBT meeting!

Actually, Wally's crew could not read gud. Wally meant Coucho but by the time the mistake was caught it was too late.

I think I will call it a Camel as it feels like sleeping on one.

This must be the most closely held secret in the history of industrial espionage.

Also the least interesting.
