I'm still mad at you for selling the awesome car to go to college!

My wife. Technically, I didn't actually buy - more like a unlimited term rental. 30+ years later and I'm still paying. If I had invested all that money ... well, I'm just not gonna think 'bout it.

Another Airstreamer! And for Father's Day--awesome!
I have a 1976 Argosy 28' coach. A couple of others here have trailers.
Tons of fun--hope you enjoy it!
What year? What length?
