Vivian - we always like trailers in progress, but if it would me, I would choose comfort over cots or sleeping bags

So glad its worked out for y'all to join us - you will leave with more knowledge than you could ever imagine...

Don't know yet if I will make it but I have some extra Ceramiflex and acid etching primer, enough for several roofs. I am in the Albuquerque area.

This rally is for anyone who owns or is thinking of owning an Airstream trailer - we cover subjects designed for those who hardly know what an Airstream is to those who have owned and restored them. We start very basic with a presentation on what a novice with no prior experience did to restore a trailer and then on to the experts who do this for a living and show the right way to build these trailers as they were originally built - maybe even better. LOTS of tips and ideas to do it right the first time. There is a right way and a not so right way to rebuild these trailers, which is why all the presenters are required to have extensive knowledge in what they present.

Those of you who have restored trailers, we will be giving you ideas on how to further improve your trailers such as disk brake installation, valuation, proper insurance etc.

So all are welcome if you own an trailer or not - we have a number of folks staying in hotels.

Once you attend you will want to come back year after year............

Let us know what we can do to make this experience happen for you!

I CAN"T wait! I learned so much last year from you all, that I've used on our GT! I can't wait to show you. I've become a cabinet maker, aluminum polisher, 12v electrical expert, and Riveter! Although, it won't be totally done, at least I won't have to sleep in a tent, this time! Please, sign me up! I am also a 4-CU member, now. Thank YOU!!!! for doing it again.

Hi Ken-
William and I plan to be there! The check is in the mail. Thanks and we look forward to learning a lot!

P.S. Wm took the belly pan off and was surprised to have 9 very dead mice drop from the innards of the AS. The cat was very excited. Wm wasn't.

That sounds great

This rally just gets better and better - we will have even more seminars than in previous years - in fact its going to be a challenge for the organizers to fit them all in - the newest is curtains and upholstory - we will have someone there with many years of sewing and upholstory work.

Michelle - you will learn lots!

Globie - we are sorry you can't make it either - each year we seem to outdo ourselves - this year is no exception -

For myself, each year I think it may be the last because of the amount of work it takes to do what we do and attract professionals and vendors who are willing to this for very little compensation, but this is year #4 and we are still going! So we will do this as long as all the stars line up that make this rally happen!

As a bit of promotion - this IS the best 85/50 bucks you will spend on your Airstream - you will get THOUSANDS of dollars of information! Past attendees say we could charge double and it would still be a screaming deal....!
