Still dreaming of our 1st Falluminum Rally

My good wife and I were excited about getting the first aluminum camper and making it to this fall rally but it is looking bleak. You see the buying trip we went on this Monday/Tuesday was rough. The unit we thought we were getting (had a deposit on) was replaced by an evil, very rough clone I guess. The owners idea of good is distorted and he knows how to take pictures. Bad floors throughout, bad wiring, bad A/C and the street side awnings that were "good", one opened up and was shredded and the back one fell into my arms as soon as I pulled the strap . I was planning on the curb side awning as he told me I needed that but the others were good. 400 miles one way with the truck loaded with tools, hitch, new brake controller installed, propane, batteries, bedding, cookware, the wife, the son and the 2 schnauzers and we ended up staying in a hotel Monday night.

While looking at abandoning our search for the perfect camper we started looking a box campers and was heading back to Marietta to look at one and negotiate on it . Well, our good friends called from Gillette, WY as they were going to lunch with this retired couple and they have a few AS's and would consider working with us financialy to make a deal on thier 77 31ft camper, one caveat, they will not be back to Georgia until mid August. Now that is a deal, to find an AS that is available from a club member that loves thier campers and will work with us to make sure this unit goes to a good Airstream home.

The tough news is we will wait and hope that there may be a spot still open when we get this trailer. I am a little gun shy on dreaming of ownership this time or I would reserve the site with confidance. Even tougher yet is we have to be out of the place we are in this weekend . Good thing we still have the other camper to move into for the next 4 to 6 weeks. hopefully we will get to see the AS in the next week as they are going to call some people that can show it to us and then in August we can move out of our Jayco Pop-up and into the Airstream. Yes I said pop-up. Well at least the pop-up has a slide out. Monday night my wife and I were praying that a path would be made clear to us and at 1pm on the 29th it happened. God willing the 31' AS is meant to be ours and we will offically join these ranks of Happy Airstream Owners.

These forums ROCK!!! I have learned so much and am real excited to join your ranks.

Reservations for Falluminum....

Hello all,

As far as reservations go at this campground, keep in mind that if you go ahead and secure a spot early and can't make it, you can either post the available spot and someone will likely take it or cancel the spot and the campground will let you move the deposit to a later camp date or at worst case loose 30.00. With the first two options, there is really no reason to loose it though. We've camped there many times and at many times of the year and there is no bad time to be there. In addition, we've been to many concerts there where we camped there also.

My .02,

G

Ok, thanks for your two cents. She listed off about 8 sites when I called to choose from. Never been there so I chose to park near the top of the hill and see how it goes. We are looking forward to camping with a group of other AS's. We have site A20. Now just pray that the Airstream becomes ours.

If anyone doesn't know...my Excella is on Craigslist and the Classifieds here. We might want to get into a smaller ( maybe older too) unit. It is a terrific Airstream for someone. If you know of any lookers let me know, I do have someone coming tomorrow from Fla.

I wondered what you were up to, Alan...got a little worried about you there for a day or two. And after seeing your rig last fall, I have to agree, it's one terrific Airstream. A bargain at the price you're asking. I've got almost that much in mine and it's not finished yet.

See y'all in the fall.

Jim

Alan, we love your Airstream and you did a great job with it. Unfortunatly it is quite a bit higher than we are able to stretch for our first AS. We know it will be acquired by the right people who will really appreciate the detail work you put into it.

Thanks, I am not sure it will sell, and we are ok if it doesn't. It was a labor of love as they say, and I have enjoyed watching it progress over the past few years. Not really wanting to start another project, but there could always be one in my future. This aluminitis and travel bug has certainly got me.
Some very interested folks are flying up to day to see it...

Reservation made

The reservation for Falluminum 2010 was made today. We are in site A32 if someone is making a locator map. It looks like we will have a short stay because of a conflict. We will arrive on Friday and checkout on Sunday. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again. I have polished my skills on dutch oven cooking.

The River Road and US 64 are the same road that goes through the Ocoee River Gorge. It is open now and very passable.
