Great episode of Hands on History (history channel) yesterday!  The show gave 
pretty in-depth to the construction of (modern) airstreams.  I was especially 
facinated with the molding of the frame and how everything is built on 
scaleable yellow assembly frames.  I wonder how much more standardized the 
manufacturing process is now than in the past.  I'm also curious if they are ISO 
certified (looks like they are trying to get there if they aren't there already).

There were few limited vintage shots, including the host talking with Thor's 
pr guy in an archival quality Clipper (pretty incredibly untouched, by the 
looks of it).  They had a quick shot of the vintage A/S parked next to the 
plant--I wonder whether some of this group's trailers were in the shot, waiting for 
repairs...

Tivo is set up to  record anything airstream related automatically, so I 
didn't catch this one coming (or would have sent the list advanced notice)!  It's 
bound to repeat, though not in the next 2 week schedule.  If I see it coming 
up in the future, will let the list know.

Mary

Re: below;

Why not defer the cost a bit by selling fellow owners such as myself 
(color?) copies!?  I'd be glad to "chip in" for one (but is it a sales 
cat or a brochure?).
