If you want to stay closer to all the action, the Enchanted Trails camp ground has vintage trailers to rent. we are staying in one for the same price as the rv sites thanks to Vicki at the campground.

I wish I could confirm today but life (and possibly moving) get in the way sometimes. We have so enjoyed the last couple of years and learned so much that Cleco and I will be heart broken if we miss this. Ken, Uwe and the rest have become the highlight of our spring and a great excuse to get together as a family-isn't that what Airstreaming is all about?
For those of you who have not attended or aren't sure- this is the best learning experience you will have.
Don't miss it!
Hope to see you there
tim

Is this hands on or just instructional? I only ask cause I would love some hands on before I tear into mine.

This looks like it would be a great event for Airstream owners and prospective owners. Is there any thought of doing something like this on the East coast?

Hi, Ken

I realize that's it very early for reserving rooms, but I just tried to book at the LaQuinta and they weren't aware of Vintage Trailer Academy. I dialed the number listed at the registration portal and first connected to reservations and then to the front desk when reservations couldn't help. The front desk suggested I call back tomorrow AM and speak to the manager.

I booked online to secure my room, but I can cancel up until the day before. Can you provide any additional information regarding the La Quinta and what rates we should be expecting?

Finally had a chance to check on this - when you call they are supposed to put you through to the group reservation line - did not know that when we set it up - anyway - we will confirm this in the morning and update the website with a number direct to the group reservation line....

You don't have to be a commercial member to post add like this?

Not a commercial venture. It's a rally aimed at teaching. Not a moneymaking thing.

That is correct - we do not make anything off of this event - everything we collect goes back into the event - we bring in professionals to teach how to rebuild/restore these great coaches - yes it does cost us a lot to bring these folks in - its the only event where you can stand shoulder to shoulder with these folks and watch and learn from them - it is a very rare opportunity to be able to do that - these folks are in business to do what they do, but by attending you get hands on experience for a very reasonable price - compared to what it would cost if you hired these folks to help you with your projects.

These presenters fly in or drive in from all over the US to one place where you can learn all phases of Airstream restoration - you won't find this collection of learning in one place anywhere - indeed we are very fortunate to have these folks - be sure to thank them when you see them !

I'm also pleased to announce that we have Lewster joining us again this year - as you may know from these forums, Lew is the owner of Master Tech RV - he does very high end solar installations and a very popular presenter at this event - if you want to know how to properly install solar or want to know the proper way to install anything electric, he will teach you the correct way - last year he was one of our most popular presenters. Lew is an engineer by training and years of experience to draw from.

I'm not looking to start any big debate, but why is video verboten? I'm curious if there is any chance this policy might change, it sure would be great to be able to refresh after the academy is over.
