That is if they dont change their name prior to the next issue............

In my opinion, the best RV publication of all.

ASLife does cover motorhomes, but since AS makes more trailers than motorhomes it has limited coverage. Havin said that, if a classic motorhome is what you are interested in, this would still be a great mag as it covers many topic relevant to both.

Motorhome Magazine is "standard" mag for MH's.

Motorhome is ok, for general interest but there is not enough info for us vintage owners. There was a Vintage and Classic MH mag out for a short time, but it did not develop enough of a following. Motorhome was looking at publishing my Evolution of the Classic AS Motorhome article, but ended up not doing so. Too bad, as so many folks out there don't even know the classic exists. You will find more good info right here on this Forum than anywhere else right now..to keep your classic alive and well.

I totally agree. Every time I take mine out, people want to know if it's some kind of hybrid or custom vehicle. One guy even asked how I got a trailer body attached to a "truck" frame . I guess that's about what it is. Anyway, I do wish there were a magazine that did more with vintage motor homes. I guess it's the "advertisers determine articles" deal. The money is in selling new ones, I suppose.

There was for a short time a few years ago a Vintage and Classic Motorhome magazine. I subscribed, and of course it never filled out the subscription, disappearing after some months. It had lots of good info, although much was aimed at the GMC owners, as there are many fanatical restorers of those fine 70's units.I have held on to the copies as I still enjoy flipping thru them.

I got my subscription and back issues to Airstream Life this week. If for no other reason it does provide some resources through the adverts.

There was an article on the classics written by AlanSD (winter 2005), nice job Alan. In that article you noted that the 345 had a floor safe. I did not know that, where is the safe located?

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff, I did the same thing with Airstream Life. Loved ALANSD's article also. My logic was to have ALL the issues, even if most of the stuff is trailers. At least it's Airstream. The safe is probably in one of your closet floors, if it's like the other models. Don't tell anyone . Top secret, of course .

The safe is in the floor in the closet with a piece of carpet over it. Hope you have the key!!
