Alumapalooza 2010 Question

Did Airstream store and service center offer any discounts around that event? If so, what were they?

Did any other suppliers show up with special discounts or offers for people who attend?

discounts?

well kinda sorta but not really.

there were some coupons for edibles for the local town festival that weekend.

and the factory tour was free (as always)

and folks who buy stuff in the store right after going on the tour,

are supposed to get a 10% discount (i forget to ask 4 it every single day...)

the store had BUNCHES of stuff set out to buy, sorta 'factory clean out/garage sale style'...

-for example 4 cases of essentially NEW water pumps were available for 15$? each...

-and lots of discontinued lighting fixtures for 5-15$ (mostly classic styles)

-and some 'scratch n dent' parts taken off in the service center

(i purchased a new euro stove vent/fan/light) for pennies on the dollar.

-they had cases of tee shirts/accessories for discount, LOTS of this stuff.

-they had wheels and tires and interior cabinetry and furnishings also available at ONE TIME ONLY pricing.

(the 2000$+ leather lounge chair marked down over a 1000$ was still available afterward)
_________

basically the gals running the store got out EVERYTHING they could find to sell,

and we grabbed it ALL up like locus devouring corn.
_________

i suspect they did NOT expect to sell so much stuff and will be even BETTER prepared next go around.

and technically ANYONE walking into the store could enjoy this savings,

so registration for 'da thang' wasn't required.
__________

also the ability to schedule AND have repairs/service done WHILE there is a big BONUS imo.

along with the free coffee and sweet treats.
__________

parts/supply vendors were not there with display tables like often done at BIG gatherings...

but there were artists there selling stuff (artstream and some jewelry merchants)

david winick was there and had his CUSTOM screen door things

and BUNCHes of real vintage/retro niknak stuff that vanished quickly.

it would NOT surprise me to see MORE vendor booths next time,

but i'm sure the organizers will be clever about HOW this is set up...

(skymed and the wb' had tables/booths)

and since we're on this topic....

2air,
Good info as always! The locus and the corn thing made me laugh as I could picture it in my mind.
Enjoyed the song "For what it's worth" it's one I have not heard in a long time.
Did you guys need to use your air conditioners at the last one or was it cool enough at that time of the year to be comfortable with fans running and windows open?

some used ac, most did not.

there was a genset ONLY section for that with ~25 trailers.

all of these issues are pretty well covered in the 2010 THREAD from last years gig...

it's linked (see last post links) and the old posts are ALL well worth reading,

especially since u r asking about the PAST event.

the 'looza website has a FULL list of faqs on these things too.

it's easier for U 2 go read, than it is for ME to retype it...

cheers
