The picture to the left above is how we do nap time - you know all good classes has a nap time scheduled in...

We thank you all for the wonderful comments and the one's I've received in PM's and e-mails - we promise to do this each year and make it better and better. Stay tuned about Feb 2011 for info on the next restoration rally.

So much to do...

4CU Vintage Rally
Organizers, Instructors, Participants and new Friends,

Thanks Ya'll, for the a great rally, training sessions and fellowship. We went with the intent of learning a few things and sharing some ideas. I came away with new friendships and the confidence to go after the many repairs our '70 Safari needs, no problema! So much to do.

Appreciate all the work that went into the event, the "experts" are more that just that, the best Airstreamers on the planet... Learned a lot, plan on seeing you all again next year in our "Vintage" rig!

Nanc and I got back Monday after blowing a tire on the AS halfway between Albuquerque and Gallop...full sidewall failure with a tread tear-away. Put my new Banna-wrap tool to use yesterday to repair the damage (thanks Roger).
See ya soon Anthony and Tamara!
Stream Safe.
Bob 'n Nanc-
Oh and we'll post some pics as soon as I get back to the mainland...

I made it home again, after dropping off Peewee near his home in Arizona. My trip was very easy, as always. I wanted to thank you all for coming and for making this such a great event. I was continually amazed how you all managed to entirely derail my presentations and turn them into great big interactive discussions. Loved it. Lots of positive energy at Enchanted Trails that weekend! Can't wait for next years event, which will be even better. I will very likely bring back the Fling Cloud, which hopefully by then will be very nearly completed. Cheers!

one word: EXCELLENT!!
Never expected anything like this... far, far beyond any ideas I had.
My Big Goal is to have my "O." apart and back together again to tow out to New Mexico for 2011!
Thank you for the overwhelming generosity, helpfulness and friendliness. I feel that I have made some lifelong friends and hope to meet many of you again- out on the road, happily traveling :-)

Rae

Mike - send me a copy or your article when you write it - did you get all your dents pulled? Bet you are a happy camper to go home dent free

Rae - Likewise I'm glad you had a great time - can't wait to see your trailer next year.

This rally would not happen without the support of our vendors

Area 63 Productions - what can I say - this rally would not happen without their support - the president of the company himself brings a work in progress trailer to us and its really great to see how you can take an old trailer and see what it become - those guys are just amazing in what they do. They give their time freely at the rally and so its a great opportunity to actually talk to the expert.

Vintage trailer supply - they have been our major sponsor since we started this rally - they have donated all kinds of items

Inland Rv - they donated some very special items - along with the Airstream related items, Andy donated a couple of items that have really special meaning in that we would not be able to have the rallys and freedom had it not been for our Vets - during the rally Pee Wee gave a heartfelt speech that gave us all pause and thankfulness that we live in this great country - Andy's gift was especially meaningful in this regard.

Airstream Life - donated a book that Pee Wee signed - this was a really special gift that I'm sure will be treasured forever.

The Shady Lady - very cool vintage awnings

Jesco products - again has been with us since the beginning - make your trailers shine!

And others - like Camping World, Master Tech Rv, Best Converter and many others who really support this rally.

Thank you all who supported this rally....

If you missed this rally - you really missed a great learning opportunity - we will continue to grow and hope to further showcase these venders.

Thank you again and again

Ken J

Thumbs up 4CU Vintage Rally

Ken J:
Haven't written the article yet, but will send you the URL when I post it. Great to get rid of the dents in the top of our AS Motorhome. We are camped near Cimarron NM for a while, and we won't be back to Denver until the end of July. Will keep you posted.

Just a few pics from the rally.

Here's a few pics at the rally, this one trailer caught my eye, looks great and the details were right up my alley. I have started my window work, armed with just enough info to order tools, pull rivets and hope to have my two new side forward "oval" port windows in next week.
Oh, thats Anthony, neighbor and buddy on day three, full of AS data and technique savvy...
Now, is that parabond or vulkem under the frame, huhhhh.

Does anyone have contact info that they can PM me for Luke Bernander in Ft. Collins, CO? He was the presenter on the axle brake class. My AS is at the shop getting new brakes and they tell me that there is no one that has new seals for these old axles! HELP!

Help! After thrashing around all summer I just discovered that my rivet kit is missing. The last place I saw it was at the rallyl. I haven't checked with any of the usual suspects yet, so if anyone has seen this little prize, please let me know. That's my whole stock of hard rivets... I think it was the hard rivets...

This is not it, but it looks exactly like this. This one has nutplates, screws, and odd ball rivets.
