Very Cool Airstream Motorhome Video on YouTube...

I am an amateur at doing video presentations, but I thought you all might enjoy my try at putting one together of my 1977 Airstream Argosy 24' Classic.

Just click this link:

YouTube - 1977 Airstream Argosy Motorhome Classic Original Coolness...

My motorhome is all original and in fabulous condition...

Enjoy! ...And please post a note here and on YouTube if you like it!

Well... the moho is gorgeous, and the video concept is excellent. The graphics design and placement are excellent. Now for the constructive criticism... Your transitions move too fast and too broken up... almost schizophrenic. There's not enough time for the viewer to recognize what you're trying to show in each "scene" before it destructs and then flashes something new which again quickly destructs... On a personal note, while others will undoubtedly disagree... I think the music is awful... I had to turn it off 30 seconds into your production. I'd suggest you find music that is less "niche" if you want your video to have a broader audience.

You're onto something really good here... I really like the concept!

I thought it was cool also but I agree it moves a little to fast other than that I liked it a lot. I didn't mind the music even though I am not the biggest of country fans.

Nice Argronski!
I agree about the speed of the change in photo shots. Too fast....but did not mind the music choice.

Good looking Argy...Yours looks like a time capsule re-opened. Just makes me yearn for the days of burnt orange shag carpet, avacodo appliances, and harvest god bathroom fixtures.

Good Job!

Thanks for having a look. I appreciate the comments, and will try to slow it down. As it is, it is over 4minutes long and I was thinking it might not keep peoples attention for more than that in a slower mode.

For those that would like to simply "mosey" is a link to the individual photo album. You can go as slowly as you like:

Thanks again...Enjoy.

I like that song, & I'm not a country music fan. I've got a "Ken Burns effect" feature on my Mac that is less jumpy. Good effort.

Just saw this baby for sale in the Classified section. Great price for a great machine. Makes me think twice about the redo on my rig! Cheaper to buy yours.

Very Cool!!! I loved the video and IMO like the music. I love the 70's orange so much I wanted to paint the exterior of my Argosy Trailer Candy Orange.

"Nice Argronski!" I LOVE THEVAP
