By the way... sangria wine used as a floating topper for a margarita is an excellent thing. Y'all have fun!

Last update till after the Jam!

OK, we've closed online registration. If you still want to come but haven't pre-registered, call Vintage Trailer Supply at

... and let them know you're coming. We can accept your registration on-site but we need to know you are coming so we can ensure that there will be space.

We have 83 trailers pre-registered, and 199 total participants (including walk-ins).

Of those, 68 are Airstreams, and 15 are other vintage brands. We have a nice diverse group! There are some exceptionally cool rigs coming!

By the way, the Yamaha generators we were selling are all spoken for, as of today.

I won't be checking this thread again until after the Jam, so if you have any last-minute questions, call the number above. See you there!

I am so looking forward to this. One question before I call rluhr, the schedule is gone from the Jam link. Did anyone print it out? Or get a mailing? I didn't

Inappropriate to go topless

Since it would be inappropriate to go to the jam topless, we signed in as walk-ins. We were hoping to have an aluminum tent, but the kitchen renovation took precedence.

We won't show empty-handed.

We are definitely going to the Vintage Trailer Jam and looking forward to visiting nearby sites such as the Finger Lakes Wine Country, Lake Placid and surrounding Adirondacks. Saratoga itself is an interesting community. Hope to see you there.

Wish me luck getting to the Jam folks. This will be an interesting week. I was down on the NC Outer Banks over the weekend- had a great time, plenty of sun and seafood. Yesterday, pulling out of camp, my neighbor mentioned he heard a squeek. I thought, ok- probably torsion bar. It is 40 years old and has earned a rebuild. I get 25 miles down the road and as I reach Manteo, there is an ominous chunking sound from curbside. Ugh. Popped off the hubcap and sure enough, nice and hot. Last month, I repacked bearings on the Eriba Puck and the homebuilt/teardrop at the same time except I gave up on one hub because I was afraid of stripping the nut. I thought it was the homebuilt. So much for my memory. So, pulled into a Napa, got the nut off (I suspect with abnormal adrenaline born of frustration) and the outer bearing was down to half the balls and the rings looked like tinsel. Inner race was welded to the spindle. Knocked the hub off and the inner bearing was missing 3 balls too (the back of the rim was nicely greased ) I had to drive my wife up to Williamsburg so she could pick up her car to drive to work in Maryland and I am waiting/praying for the shop to call and say that cutting the race away was successful and spindle is salvageable. Sooo.. hopefully I will have a trailer to bring up to Saratoga. If all else fails, I may just have to drive up with either New Beetle or Westfalia. I think this precludes baking

Any motorhome forum-ers attending this? I would love to hear a "scoop" from Brett G's seminar on classic motorhomes. Wish we could go! If anyone attends could you please pm me and let me know the topics covered? Have a great time everyone - We really enjoyed the VAC open house in Bozeman! s.s.sloan
