New Airstream Inc. Website

Airstream Inc. should be getting they're new and improved website up and running within the next 30-45 days...it looks really great...a lot more user friendly.

I saw some of it at the meetings last week...they are going to keep it updated better...loaded with a lot of improvements...

I think they are really headed in the right direction.

They also had a lot of good things to say about the Forums, and what a good job it does getting info out about the Airstream product!

I doubt it. It appeared to fold last time due to a manpower issue. Even if they pay a group of people to run their forum, I doubt the company could find the right blend of expertise & enthusiasm the moderators on this site possess.

In my opinion, they should subsidize Andy R to be the voice of Airstream in an Internet forum. Andy has a proven track record of doing a fine job.

If nothing else, we could get a tagline with "Airstream" in it.

Thank you Tom. Word was that the previous Airstream site forum didn't have a critical mass of moderators and spam took over.

Airstream's commitment to designing a new website should include maintaining a regular webmaster who keeps it updated at least as often as your local garden society! If they follow previous patterns, there'll be a new Airstream model in 6 months that won't be posted on the site and their website will be forever behind until a new miraculous redesign is done again in 2 years. Here's hoping that they don't just bank on the Airstream cachet and really get out there and market their product! Even with gas prices slowing things down, I'd have to think the production line wouldn't be in the current lull if they did more than rest on their laurels. Rant over...

Gene, thank you so very much for your proactive seeking advice leading up to the business meetings last month! I know you want it to be right!!

The new basic Safaris are now featured on the Airstream Website, but they are still showing new models that have been discontinued. I guess Airstream figures that this "internet thing" will never catch on.

Rivet New Website

As a web professional, I will have to admit that the Airstream website has not been the greatest in the past. I look forward to the new version.

I would like to see a real effort towards making pdfs of owner’s and service manuals available. I realize that they would have to be scanned and would therefore be huge files. I would buy a CD or DVD even and have one printed. It’s better than nothing, which is what I have now.

There are many owners and service manuals available from Airstream, but, unfortunately, for sale.

Hi Andy,

I have looked on their website, and the oldest I have seen listed are 1998 ones. Not much help with my 83. It looks like second hand somewhere is my only option.

Thanks,

Vaugan

How about them Cubs?

I think it was mentioned in one of the early posts that the new Airstream.Com web site was going live in August. Post #2 says August 1.

Dennis...you are right...

When I started this thread I was talking about Airstream, Inc. :: Travel in Style

The factory site...I don't know how it got side tracked...

They are now saying around August the 10th...
