Barry & Donna... Bummer! So sorry to hear this...but glad no one was hurt... Where are you at the moment?

Hope you can get it all fixed up as good as new quickly so we can see you at Dead Horse!

Good luck!

Thanks Terry. We are in Tucson, looks like we are heading toward Q for a day or two, then Yuma. Tried Oasis RV in Tucson for repairs but can't even get them motivated to provide an estimate for the insurance company. So, off to Al's RV to see what they are willing and able to do.

Hey, we got a surprise - it rains in AZ???????? What's with that? At least it isn't snowing like it is at home .

Not having any success finding a repair center capable of fixing our trailer . Until we find out if we will actually have it then, or if it is in for repairs, we are not able to fully commit. (I know, many think I should have been committed years ago - particularly Donna).

We will let you know as soon as we find out.

If anyone has any suggestions about where to take a vintage Airstream in AZ for body repairs would appreciate the info. We've been to Oasis in Tucson - so far it has been painful, took them two weeks to respond to phone and email so went in and got a feeling they are so busy that ours would just hang in limbo. I did finally get a quote from the owner though, so we'll see. Tried Al's RV here in Yuma but they apparently don't do actual body part replacement.

Oh well........any leads would be appreciated. My fear is that the insurance company is going to write the trailer off, then we are on the hunt for another '62 or older Tradewind.

Give Uwe at Area 63 productions a call. He is in Orange California and does a lot of metal work on vintage trailers.

Disappointed to hear that Oasis has not dealt with you better. They did body work for us after we had damage due to a blowout and they did it very quickly, etc and worked well with the insurance co, too....no complaints. I know they can handle it. We've seen them handling major body work. I will say that they are not good with returning messages, though, and email is useless with them. If you are still trying to work with them talk to either Joe (the owner) or Rick (the service manager). Good luck!

Joe did respond, but it took two weeks. Our visit to their offices was painful, to say the least, just trying to learn anything about if they would/could even tackle it. But, as mentioned, Joe did finally call and provide a quote. Our fear is if they are that unresponsive just providing the quote, how commited are they going to be at actually doing the work.

This afternoon in Yuma Roger and I found two places that are doing Airstream restoration work and both are anxious to provide quotes. One has a few on their lot that they either have or are about to work on. Will keep you posted - and have not ruled out Oasis, but would certainly like to find a firm who actually appear to want to fix our trailer and understand our need to get it done.

Thanks again, Terry, and you too Richard, and the others who were kind enough to respond. We do very much appreciate it. I just hope the insurance company does not force a write-off but they don't have emotion attached to their responses, just $$$$$.

Oh well, life happens.

Louis - you must be practicing your "good weather dance" given the great weather in Yuma this week. Keep it up so we can enjoy the gathering at DH.

I think we are almost squared away. We can't wait to see you and the kids again. I will make sure I keep a long space available for your trailer.

The trout fishing sounds great to me. According to the Game & Fish Department, the lagoons are being stock every 2 weeks over the winter months. Thanks for reminding me that I need to get a 2012 fishing license.

The weather has been fantastic this year (knocking on wood) with daytime temperatures in the mid 60s and cooling down to around 40 every night.

Thanks for remembering the firewood. If everyone brings a little, we will have plenty...

Julianne do you still need the satellite antenna? Let me know that way I will put it in the AS. Tamara and I are working hard at getting the limited ready. We need about 1.5 sq. ft. on the floor. It is looking nice.

I have put together a helpful document that covers the events of the rally. Please note that all events are optional. We will have a white board at the Ramada that will list the days events and any changes. If there is something that we missed, it can be added. Jan and I are your hosts, but it is your rally. Our goal is for everyone to have a fun weekend!

One of the items on the list of items to bring is Disco music. We are looking for 79s & 80s stuff. CDs and Cassettes will work on our player, but 4/8 track and vinyl will not.

C U at the Disco!
