Airstreamer Forums - what happened?

Is the Airstreamers forums and classifieds maintained by Airstream or by members?

Does anybody know when it went down and how long it is expected to be down?

Are their classifieds not updated either?

Still shoppin'

You could e-mail them..... Here's what i understand...

The Airstreamer forums (I am a member) were set up and maintained by Corp Airstream and they had some volunteer help moderating the site. They have been down for a while and when I called them and asked, I was told that "the forum were currently a low priority". I'm niot sure what this means but I saw a lot of spam on the site just before it was shut down.


I don't know anything about the classifieds.

What happened to the Airstream Forum?

Does anyone know what happened to the forum on the Airstream website? It has been down for repairs for weeks.

I was told Airstream could not give the forum the attention it needed, so they closed it. The last time I was over there looking around, all the threads seemed to have degraded into sniping, presonal attacks, and complaining.

I used to use the Airstream Company forum regularly. My understanding is that they took it down becuase it was not being well moderated. The site had become inundated with interlopers pushing various porn sites and other nonsense postings.

Well most of you have figured it out or heard a rumor; because of the attacks of non-Airstream posts, advertising and other things we all hate to see, Airstream brought down their forum. As those of us who live in forums, we know how much work it is to maintain, monitor and keep clean. Fortunatly for us Airstream knows what it does best, make travel trailers. So there is little if any chance that their forum will be coming back up. It appears they are having a little trouble letting it go but for now they do not have the resources to maintane the forum.

I used to visit on occasion, but they were having spam and server problems. I know at least one of the moderators was very frustrated because they couldn't clear the spam as fast as it was being posted. Like a lot of things Airstream does, it was a great idea....just poorly executed

They never have been swift at refreshing their trailer offerings, even at the model year changeover. We can expect brochures to be one-third out of date when we pick one up at a dealer. And have they even put out any more of their electronic Airstreamer Newsletters all year?
