Thank you for the very quick replies;
I' ll be very carefull to take pictures before and during the shots.All the time i'll be there to see what they do and what the kids do ; i' ll ask a contract with all damages repairing even if this solution doe'snt interest me ... I don't want damages at all and I 'll be very present; I well know that repairing an Airstream is not a simple work and it's always a different restauration than the original condition ( a new aluminum panel is not the same that the genuine one... not same reflect ).
Sure, it's fun to see the trailer in a magazine or a catalog ; that is an other Airstream experience ... and i want that'll be a good one only.

Bruno.

Hi Bruno,
when you have taken into account all the comments above, bear in mind that you're trailer is probably worth $500/day and your own time - since you WILL be moving the AS around is probably worth another $300. Don't underestimate the value of your trailer to them. They will be paying upwards of $150 a day for each of the little mites and the AS will be the star!
Regards,
Marc

We rented our Excella to a TV show for a day. We were there all day, I was the only one to move it.
They did have a set designer hang some cloth over the awning using sewing pins (the AS blue did not fit the theme???!!!).
I think we were paid $250, catered lunch, drinks, etc for the day.
In all, it was interesting, a very long day, kind of boring.
I probably would not waste a day doing it again (unless the $ was better!).
But it will be cool to see our AS on TV when the show airs (scheduled for sometime this spring).
As other stated, make sure you are there, and the only one to move it, etc.

Bill

"Ask for a lot of money, it would be impossible for them to find another Airstream (jet d'air) in France."



I concur BTW.

I've done it a couple of times. First time was a still photo shoot for the Rocky Mountain News. The was great - no pay, but fun. The article got syndicated and ran all over the country. One photograher & one writer...that was it. No problems...at all. The other time, we let it be was used in a local commercial for Comcast Cable. Don't know if I'd do that again...at least I would be more careful in having a game plan. We did get paid...I think abput $350 for 3-4 hours camera time...but we spent more than that cleaning & shining.

The basic problem was there were too many people involved. The producers, camera people, actors and such just just looked at it as a prop and didn't respect it as anything more. It was all about the getting the "right shots" at sunset. We stayed all evening and were the only ones supposed to move it, etc...but it was like herding cats trying to keep people from trying to push it (by the body!) into place for the right camera angles, etc. Also, being that Max is 40+ years old...he has some quirks, like knowing how to open the door "just so"...they just yank on the handle and when it didn't work, yankled harder - that kinda stuff, no major damage...just not careful. It could have been worse...especially if we weren't hovering!

Anyway, I'd say be careful, know the rules, make sure they have insurance & get paid for your time & effort.

It's been almost 3 years since the local paper did a feature story on Airstreams. They found me through the Internet and I in turn sent them to two other forum members, midamrail and tincanluv. They took many many pictures. 6 actually made it into the paper while 3 made it into the online story. Here is a link to that thread and to the particular story. Many of you who are new to the forums probably didn't see this.

Wow, so many cynics? Sounds as if kids and camping don't go together like campfire and smores. I had pattersontoo's kids (Lou's mini crew) actually eating IN my camper! Can it get much riskier than that?

It sounds like you are in it for the fun so I suggest that you get everything in writing, keep a flexible attitude and have fun

Not cynical...just trying to point out the "what if's". If someone goes into the situation thinking only of the glamourus "my trailer is going to be a star" side, they will be disappointed and very angry if something unexpected happens. If they understand what to ask about & look into before the shoot - like insurance coverage, they are much better off.

It's different when you are camping and it's your own "accidents" from normal use, especially if it's avoidable with clear communication & expectations up front. They last thing I would want is someone to be kicking themselves for not asking about what to watch out for ~ besides, everybody's tolerance level is a little different.

Sure;
I agree with you with potential damages on this kind of trailer and repairing is very ,very expensive ... I have the experience now:

AIRSTREAM HARLEY and The American Dream in FRANCE.: 15 avril 2004

the "only "replacement of 2 panels cost me 9000 euros ( $11000) and the result is good, not perfect in the shining with the other panels.

I don't want to live this experience, one more time, even if insurance is all damages covered and now i wonder it's really a good thing to do that; The money does'nt really interest me , it's more for the fun and my celebrity quarter an hour, as Woody Allen said...
I'm a bit in trouble now for a good decision about renting or not...

Bruno.

Last news from today...
Finally there'll be no pictures with the AS...
It was planned for the next week-end in the south of FRANCE ( near Saint tropez ) or in the north ( Le Touquet ) and when I phoned to have news, it was to heard that 's not for this time....at only one week when you think you have to organise to go on the place , to stay there, to live inside , to keep these days free from working , to have all in use as you go in holidays and finally NO....
I supose that is current in this kind of business... You are not very important person..., just for the deco but you have to be OK at anytime.
just disapointed to not live this new experience so a bit happy too... the trailer has no damage with that and it was really my nightmare;

Bruno;

Hi remcolent;
Yes, you 've well red; 9000 euro to repair the damages on the 2 panels and the bumper; All the work has been made by Classic Caravans in Germany .
Hopefully the AS was insured and it's not me who has to pay ( in fact i've paid to get the AS back and wait one year to be paid in totality by the insurances.... ); The experts agreed with this price so I am convince that Classic caravan earned a lot of money on this repair.... I had asked frequently, photos on the the differents steps of the repairing work and i had NO pictures . It's not Classic caravan that has made the repairing and when you go at the store, there is no store, nothing except some caravans and motorhome waiting to be rent; it's all what he does; It's only a parking.
So what i wanted was to get quickly the airstream back for the holidays...
About the price, it was the experts estimations and they were OK to pay...I have required a list of parts price to US Airstream dealers (no many replies) and the level of price was already high ( the 2 panels plus shipping to Europe by ex )
After that it was no more my problem.

Bruno.

We finaly got word that the show with our AS weill be aired;

Hi Bill,

Jenni Gilroy passed me your e-mail regarding the Semi-Homemade Cooking
show featuring one of your Airstreams. It turns out that this show,
"Campfire Cookout," hasn't aired yet, but has a scheduled air date of
of Saturday, July 28, 2007 at 11:00 AM on the Food Network.
Unfortunately we can't send out DVDs of individual shows until after
they have been broadcast, but we can definitely send you a copy after
the air date has passed. In the meatime, feel free to check out the
show as it airs on the Food Network, and if you would ultimately like
a DVD copy as well, please send your address and any other shipping
information my way and we'll get you a DVD when we can.

All the best,

Ben Insler
