Ch-ching! That 310 Classic gasser motorhome was selling for almost $80,000 with most interior gables removed, making it only really usable for one person, (unless you enjoy doing your ablutions in front of others.

Good on them, it only drives the value of my 310 turbo diesel even higher.

These mods of Classic Airstreams are grotesque!

Can you elaborate? "grotesque" seems harsh, but to each their own.
I'd be curious to see what you think is acceptable.

the only MOD i had done when doing a frame off resto 5 years ago was the
airscoop on top. A tree had fallen on the 1936 and Sierra Trailer Restoration suggest the airscoop to "hide" the dent.
