It is Thursday.... Goodie!

Another Thursday and another great day to be happy about our little Airstream! We our Tardis (aka Bambi)!

We just got back a couple of days ago from the Hat Creek Rally. Beautiful stream! Very relaxing time.

Going to Yosemite next, but not for a couple of weeks. Time to unpack and repack the trailer!

Hope all of you have a great week! Here is a pic from Hat Creek (near Lassen)!

NO, these aren't Vintage Trailer Supply, although they are very good and recommended. Especially the service. Due to time constraints (and Shari's [INSIDEOUT] recommendation) I got this from TTC&A.

I like their tensioning ropes--the springs are great--and the poles have a positive locking setscrew. I have to say I like their poles at lot better than Vintage's, just due to the set screw--everything else about the poles seems th same.

I asked them to leave a valence gap (about a foot) next to the trailer edge of the awning so that the valence didn't constantly flap against the skin and to make the extension 9' instead of 8'. Special orders don't upset them and the changes were no cost.

When it's down, everything fits nicely in the included heavy duty vinyl duffle about 5-1/2' long. I think the whole thing with shipping was about $360.

I agree Zep, I like the quality of yours. Funny, I have added springs to the Vintage Airstream awning I got. The quality of Vintage is very good and the color selection is also good. Didn't mean to imply they were the same - just offering a location for an awning that fits the rail. Sometimes they are tough to find.

Your's look great.

Mike

ok folks......

WHO MOVED MY CHEESE or more correctly CARROTS?

i see that one of the mods has moved this thread to the 'off topic' forum....AND WHY?

i started it in the 'community polls' forum for a reason.

it is a weekly community poll of reasons to 'like our airstreams' and that's it.

many of the polls listed don't have 'voting' and aren't tabulated.

'what do you do for work' is another fine example of an ongoing community poll like this....

and there are LOTS of other COMMUNITY POLLS without formal voting..

besides someday i might actually tabulate and classify all of these wonderful reasons....

it is true that the last 2 weeks some folks are using this weekly poll for other discussions....

i'm fine with that and eventually it will return to it's true nature...A WEEKLY POLL....

wouldn't it really be better to move the vintage awning questions and camping gathering to threads on those topics... if that is the reason.

the vintage awning posts might actually be useful to others in the future if pasted into one of the vintage awning threads...

so who moved it, why and how about just put it back?

it's a community poll so it is bound to zigzag a little now and then, but it is clearly not an OFF TOPIC thread.

kindly just put it back.

regards
2air'

it is a nice awning,

is that a custom order,
or are they used to deliver those kind of product.
on the website I can't find something like yours.

dufferin,

I had exactly the same question. Give them a call. Tanya knows exactly what to do, just talk to her.

Tell her to put a photo on their web page for Vintage Trailers!

They are amazing there, when we finally take the awning plunge we will get ours from them. She sent out fabric samples, helped me in numerous emails, etc. They are super helpful.
