    That is very very very nice. I would love something like that.

    It would certainly turn heads when arriving on a campsite.

    However the huge overhang may make getting out of a lot of petrol stations a problem :Rofl1:

    I'll buy your RMB Dave...

    Then, when you get back to the UK with the Airstream, if you regret your choice, I will give you back your RMB in exchange for the Airstream.

    You can't lose!

    Looks fantastic and with a building site transformer 240v - 110v you wouldn't have to swop out any of the electrics.

    Wow that's a beauty.
    Only ever seen two of these in all my travels one was in Oregon when we were on our 3 year trip touring the states. The couple were fantastic very friendly to us touring Brits spent some time in their van it was beautiful and they were very proud. The other was at Chester CC that couple were just the opposite not friendly at all. Actually I have seen a third but for some reason I'm convinced it had a tag axle that was at Americana about 5 years ago. Overhang wouldn't bother me but how the hell do you keep it clean and shiny.:Wink:

    The thing that ticks the boxes for me is that unlike many of the Airstreams which have a petrol engine and built on a pickup truck chassis, this has the Cummins 5.9 diesel and is built on a proper truck chassis. The rarity value of this means that if looked after it will never depreciate. Am really really tempted.

    Hell, I'd even sell your RMB to buy myself that!:BigGrin:

    Seriously, that's a truly gorgeous example. What's to think about?
