I have the 6th build of the 19. I forget what number in overall production it was, will have to check.

I am fairly well versed in both imperial, and metric, and would just love to go all metric, but alas, with our economy so tied to the much larger US market, we must give in to using both.

It has surprised me at least two or three times in recent years when clerks in liquor stores referred to the sizes of their goods as "half-pints," and "fifths." It would seem that they, of all people, would realize that these sizes were done away with many years ago.

Jim,
It's because the mental exercise is good for the brain.

Example: Escape trailer specs., where appliances are in cu.ft. and British thermal units, and tires have both inches and millimeters.

We also leave the units off. E.G. "I'll have a doubledouble with my animal fries."

My brain gets too much use as it is.

Merging the trailer naming topic and the metric topic (it is a Canadian-made trailer, after all), how about "Kilo'scape"? Or would that be a thousand trailers lined up nose-to-end instead of the thousandth one?
