I have the original heater as well.
Works!

I'll be installing a Wave3 someday.

Hi,

I'm a new member, and since it will be a while before I have an Airstream, I plan on staying in a motel for the rally. Does anyone have any recommendations for where to stay?

Thanks

Jen

Let's see how wrong I can get this.

I-40 west of town consists of truck stop exits and some older parts of town that lie between the River and I-25. Advantage, close to the rally and maybe a choice of moderate priced chain motels.

But I'd pick Central Ave between I-25 and the University and maybe even a bit further east on Central, but not much. Lots of great bars and restaurants, some older places left over from Route 66, and a very comfortable older feel to it. Disadvantage, about 15 miles out to the rally and maybe a few "colorful" people. Love it. The "downtown" area is just across I-25 to the west.

Then there's the standard airport stuff down between I-25 and the airport. Ick.

The Marriott on the north side of I-40 at Louisianna is surrounded by shopping--it's a "standard America" area.

If you go north on I-25 in the area where the the Marriott Pyramid is, you're in the business/light industrial area, very nice for business travelers, safe, modern, and antiseptic.

Whew....that was close!

Scared me! I called the park for reservations this morning....eventhough I had signed up for the Rally over a month ago...I had to have a better handle on my schedule for June before calling the park.....so today I felt I could do that. Lady that answered...not Vicki...said she thought all spaces were gone and reserved already. She took my info anyway.
Moral is....don't wait any longer.

That is correct - all the spaces are reserved - for some Airstream Vintage Restoration rally - oh... thats us! We still have room - not much, but we still have room, so whoever answered the phone probably did not realize that we is us....

It's a go for me and I just made my reservations. I will be in my Aluminum Tent again this year as I have done nothing on it since before last years rally. I will be getting home from Mojave Ca just in time to leave for the rally. Upon getting home from the rally I go to flight simulator and then back to Mojave. Aviation is really starting to suck up to much Airstream time.

Well I just made my reservations at the campground. It's a long trip, but I expect it to be worth every minute of it. I have sooooooo much work still to do any tips will be wonderful.

Thanks for the tips. I definitely would prefer a place to stay with a little character.

My check is in the mail - I just have to decide how I'm gonna get there now!
