Well said, Tom: This IS a good forum for talking about hobbies. While I enjoy our fibreglass RV, I HAVE considered an Airstream in the past ( a Bambi). Nice to learn about repairing them. Might own one some day!

We have two fiberglass campers and one that is aluminum. Haven't read that blog yet but we have been in a few Airstreams that have had fantastic restorations and remodels done to them. Also camp with a couple that have one of the newer Bambi designer special models. No matter what the camper or vehicle is, or even if it is something we don't like or wouldn't want, we have to appreciate and admire the time and work that has been put into it.

It doesn't matter to me what style or type of travel trailer / camper. When I see one that is refurbished or rebuilt, I smile inside. Of course I have favorites. I don't have to explain the attraction to fiberglass eggs to this crowd. I like Airstreams because it's the first TT I remember seeing as a child and discussing with my Dad. It also brings back memories of all the airplanes and helicopters I rebuilt over my career. I love the little canned hams too. I don't know why, they just look like fun. Same thing with teardrops. You can't help but wonder about the trailers and all the memories made in the past and all the future adventures in store for them.

I think it comes from the same part of my brain I use when I see a rescue dog.
