No limit on spots. We can take all who register. If you are going to register, please email vintage@thlu.org and let them know so we can plan meals and sites.

Rally brochure

THIS IS THE ONE event held each year where WBCCI members and non-members, Vintage owners and owners with newer trailers can all come together in celebration of our Airstreams.

Tres Rios River Ranch in Glen Rose, TX is a family friendly campground with some shaded sites, large dining hall, and big covered pavilions for group gatherings. You may want to come a day early to take advantage of local golfing or the Dinosaur Park.

As before, A pot luck meal with meat furnished, two catered dinners and daily coffee service are included in the rally fee. Special daily seminars on topics of interest to everyone vintage enthusiasts as well as owners of newer models. Public Open House on Saturday will showcase vintage Airstreams. There will be a Swap and Sell Meet (Flea Market) Bring your treasures, Airstream parts, arts and crafts to sell or trade.

I want to come, despite our Caravel is starting a renovation and in the shop. So do we need to make a reservation, we would be staying off site since we do not have a RV, and hubbie doesn't tent camp.

Staying off-site is just fine, however you do need a reservation so that we can plan meals, seminar seating, and other factors. We really need to know how many people we are working with. Just pay the rally fee for the number of people that are coming.

Mail your reservation and let vintage@thlu.org know via email since we are in the process of finalizing the catering.

Unfortunately, Paul Mayoux and his wife are insurance adjusters and they have been called to Alabama due to the tornadoes. Pat McDowell will extend his exterior rescue into Paul's time and include some interior rescue material.

The solar seminar will be replaced with history of Airstream trailers 1931 - 1968, based on material from vintage historian Fred Coldwell.

We are looking for additional presenters. Anyone coming with solar experience, we can work you in

We apologize for the changes, but we had no way of predicting this.

Pat McDowell is going to use some of Paul's vacated time, so there here will be some time available at the end of that session. Could you describe your equipment and experience with solar and, perhaps, lead a discussion session in that time?

John, I was really wanting to just hang out and be a spectator this week!!!

I would be more than happy to show my setup and talk about my experiences "good and bad things that work or don't work, equipment, etc", but wasn't wanting to formally do a presentation or seminar....

I never could find it. I had Jeanne send me the scheldule. The main class we would of been interested in was woodworking. We would of had to drive all evening to get to Glen rose after work, then get up early to catch that wood working seminar. The other ones interesting were cancelled, the swap and open house are on Sunday when we need to get driving back. Maybe next year the timing will be more appropriate for us working-non-retired folk. Really disapointed. Wanted to see the open house to get ideas.

That would be just fine. Thanks. I'll see where I can schedule that.

We can do this

Paul will be missed! However, lets fill in the blanks with our own experience
on our Vintage Airstreams.

A demo on the correct way to live with a Zip Dee awning.

A demo on changing a tire on a dual axle rig. Conversely, a demo on how to find the "real" jack points on your Airstream.

A hands on demo on working with PEX. (We need to find a dealer to give us some materials so we can really work with the tool.)

How to plumb a fresh water system. (This has always had my attention.)

Hands on sealing seams.

Safety.

First Aid kits for the Airstream.

Painting the tongue and bumpers with POR....

Jerbear....your open house visit is no problem.....everyone here is essentially wide open for a visit all the time. You can even get a free meal or a cold one most of the time.
