Password???

How come we have to have a password to register? Thats a pain. So is the fact that we can't use PayPal to pay the fees....I hate to pass out credit card info on
the web. I guess I have passed the get old and cranky point.

All signed up!

I found out about this yesterday and registered immediately! I'm a clueless newbie (but avid DIY-er). Timing couldn't be more ideal... I just acquired a '77 Argosy 28 TT, and I'm gutting it with plans for lots of custom modifications. After reading a few comments and testimonials, I knew VTA couldn't be missed! I'll be coming from NH, so even if I had a roadworthy trailer I couldn't bring it due to time constraints. It killed me to think about hotel-living for the weekend. Turns out Enchanted Trails has a few vintage coaches to rent! My Mr. and I reserved a '69 AS and will be lodging in style (albeit empty-handed) at the venue. Can't wait, I'm dying with anticipation!

Just signed up...

Looking forward to learning from the masters... I plan to make the roadtrip in the service truck without the airstream in tow. I will look into staying at one of those local hotels.

Thanks Vinnie

Checks in the mail.

I'm maintaining my No.1 Fan status by attending all 6 resto-rallys. The first few were all about knowledge, lately fun is challenging for top reason. (Must be all the happy people).

Sheridan....looking forward to seeing you in Albuquerque!

To those considering attending the Vintage Trailer Academy, let me introduce to you, Sheridan, a graduate of the academy...with honors! He came to the very first event six years ago on his motorcycle as his vintage was under restoration. Over the years, we saw photos and heard stories of where he was at with his project. Last year he shared his finished project with a few of us and what a gem it is!! We're happy to have Sheridan on board this year as he kicks off the Vintage Trailer Academy and shares his experience of restoring an Airstream!

Wow! We're filling up fast! We now have over 70 registrants (x's 2, in many cases) coming to ABQ from 23 different states to participate in the only event of it's kind. Have you registered??

I'm really looking forward this event and can't wait to go especially as I will be cruising down Rt 66 to get there. Since I'll be by myself I won't be bringing the AS but will be bringing my 1973 Compact II - a neat little fiberglass job I just finished restoring. It's going to look like some alien craft among the Airstreams.

Thought I saw where there is going to be a swap meet at this event ,but no details were given. If there is a swap meet I might bring some parts with.

63Air...you will be most welcomed at this event and we're happy to have you! Yes, there will be a swap meet, details are still in the planning stage. Bring those parts along. BTW, did you have to do any fiberglass work on your Compact II? I'd be curious to learn more!

I did have to do some fiberglass work to it. There were some cracks in one corner and when I got into it , I found that it had been repaired with Chore Girl scrubbing pads and body putty and that the corner was missing (guy must have hit a post with it or something). Also , he had run tires that were to big and burned holes in the wheel wells and screwed plastic lids from something over those; they had to be fixed as well. It never ceases to amaze me what a true hillbilly trailer owner can come up with when it comes to repairs. Some of the electrical and plumbing he performed were also woks of art.
