We really had a good time and thoroughly recommend this event for the future. I think a big takeaway for me is what I learned. The seminars were fantastic - tires/balancing; Dexter axles/brakes/bearings; Zipdee Awnings; wildlife photography; the Long, Long Honeymoon presentation; AS cooking; AS interior design; AS renovations, and more. We took (for the first time) the factory tour and were impressed. I bought a number of parts from the AS parts dept and was very impressed that a mechanic (or RV technician) actually came out to give me a tip on installing the item (I didn't ask for him and this just shows the customer service that AS was displaying). The entertainment and dinner were great. A thanks to Artstream (Michael), Silver Trailer (Kristiana), and David Winnick for their vendor booths and generosity in the raffles. An unexpected surprise was the lunch that AS Inc put on (with Bob Wheeler dishing out food) Saturday with the AS factory employees participating. Thanks to Rich Luhr and many others for all the Alumapalooza (see I can spell it) work and "pulling it off". And finally we enjoyed seeing old and making many new friends. And (the list could go on and on), I enjoyed meeting and talking with Dale "Pee Wee" Schwamborn.
