A message to Airstreamers from Goodyear

I have had this sitting in my owners manual and thought I should share it with you.
All of you speed-vacationers can use rule #3. My first vehicle wouldn't even go that fast.

Yeah, I'm a history buff of sorts. Why do you think I bought a 46 year old Airstream!

Lots of Wednesday happiness to everyone.

Neat old document.

I guess that a Marathon will last a little longer and is not as likely to blow out if you keep within the recommended maximum speed of 50 mph.

From the current blow out records of the Marathon it looks like Goodyear did not advance any in the last 50 years.

Well, they did advance in one way - the price!
