‘21 27FBQ Dublin Slate
Hello fellow GT Airstreamers-
We have just closed a deal on a ‘21 Globetrotter 27FBQ- Dublin Slate- to say we a thrilled is an understatement!!
This is our 2nd Airstream- our first being a ‘72 23ft, which we sold several years ago, and are completely psyched to be hitting the road once again.
When we went to take a look at it and sign some papers, we noticed upon closer inspection that the seams of the finish on the cabinetry looked almost like it was chipped in several places - i didn’t take good photos, but i will when i get back for a better look.
I brought this to the attention of the salesman- and he noted that the shipping “plastic” wrap which comes from the factory gets stuck in the seams when peeled off, and that may have been what i was seeing.
Regardless- in many places, it didn’t give the appearance of being new, and i damaged. It almost looks like it was cut fast with a full blade.
I guess my question is - have any of you noticed something like this pre-delivery and if so, what did you do? Will AS make good on this by replacing the cabinetry that has this appearance? Also, how well does the dark finish hold up over time and use?
Thank you in advance!
