Another expansion at the mothership planned

Interesting thoughts on growing product lines, improved quality and state of the art training with the expansion...

Hopefully this announcement will help/stop the falling THOR stock prices and getting it to start back up.

Best regards and safe travels

I'm not sure when the announcement was made but the stock is up about 12 points since noon today, closing at 133.

And about time Airstream setup a Museum without calling it a Museum. Always made me sad to see Wally's Gold trailer and others, just setting outside in the weather.

"Airstreamís current Jackson Center facility has long been a popular destination for Airstream owners and other tourists seeking a glimpse inside the companyís hand-made manufacturing process. A new Heritage Center will enhance those visits with exhibits illustrating the companyís 87-years of inspiring adventure, and help drive regional tourism in nearby communities. Plans call for the display of numerous classic and historic Airstream products, including artifacts from the relationship between Airstream and NASAís space program."

Hopefully they will spend a little to update and upgrade the Terraport.

I think the Terraport is kind of charming!

I've never been to JC. Is the terraport the three circular pads, as seen from Google Maps, where AS are parked?

Just curious.

Yes, 3 circles with 8 sites per circle. All are full hookups and free when having service performed. There is a small fee if just staying there. It is basic, but it is also Jackson Center.

Thanks for the original post. Thor is doing a major investment. That says much about the expected future of Airstream. It also speaks well for our trailers holding their value. . . .and a little quality control training can't hurt.

What needs upgrading at the Terraport is the location of the sewers. They are at the rear of the sites, but many years ago the sewer attachments on Airstreams were moved to the middle. When at the Terraport about 10 years ago, I had just enough extra sewer hose to reach. Otherwise, I thought it was a nice little campground and a lot nicer than some I've had to pay for. Even 10 years ago the wifi worked and you can't say that about a lot of campsites even today.
