Some of those events have no services.
You show up with a full fresh water tank.
They come around with a tanker truck and empty the black and gray tanks.
Everything in the trailer will work on the 12 volt system except microwave, television, and air conditioner.
I still want to do it one day.

They have basic electrical for lights, charging, tv, etc. just not air conditioning or microwave.

But it's a perfect fall day here, so perfect sleeping temps and no need for any air conditioning.

They have fun activities and bon fires, etc.

Best of all, everyone is super friendly, both townfolk and Airstreamers. Plenty of time for touring over 100 Airstreams of all ages and sizes.

They do tend to plan these events when the weather is mild.
It is a really cool idea.

But I'm also just wondering if any classic Airstream motorhomes will be there to represent.

So far they are of the mostly new trailer variety, with a few older trailers mixed in.

And one Argosy trailer, hehe!:
I'd hate to be the last guy in that line of trailers, with my luck I'd get called back to work and have to wait for everyone in front of me to hook up and move!

It is a lot of fun. The city hooks up 15 or 20 amp to each vehicle. The service was excellent last year and any problems were quickly resolved. The city also has a free dump station. You've got to try it at least once.

I've seen campgrounds that park the trailers tongue to bumper or tongue first in the site with a skid steer loader.

I found one other classic motorhome here.

It's a 1987 290. The owners live in Brighton, Michigan and have had it since 1993, driving it all over the country with no issues all that time. Man I wish I had their luck!

I sense that youre getting the "love" back in all our "love/hate" relationships with these old beauties Tap. Good choice on your part getting out and attending this event! Keep calm and carry on there brother. Looks like fun!

You got that right, my brother.
It was just the shot in the arm that I needed. The love is back! :-)

RE: Vintage Airstreams at Eaton Rapids

There would have been more Vintage Airstreams at Eaton Rapids if the event was held on another weekend. This was the same weekend that the Tin Can Tourist Fall Gathering was held in Milford, MI, where approximately 25-30 Vintage Airstreams attended. Hopefully next year the event calendar will be adjusted like it was in previous years to facilitate additional vintage attendance.
Regards,
StevieB
