Chevy,

We did indeed have a get-together this year. Back in early September, 13 Airstreams got together in the Forest of Dean, not a million miles from you. There are some pics at..

Tracey & Pete on the road: The Rally Call

We'll be doing it again in the Spring and late Summer next year. If anyone's interested, PM me and I'll add you to the list.

And Chiefy, you're right - it is 250kg, but only if you're careful with loading of the car so as not to exceed the rear axle limit, otherwise it's only 150kg.

Pete

I may have to import a trailer over here for these get togethers. My wife has insisted that our '68 Overlander stays in the US.

Chevy

What a neat combination you will have - a classic truck towing a classic Airstream.

Hope to see you and your outfit at one of our UK gatherings next year.

Good luck with your restoration.

John & Carole in the UK

Get a proper Land rover, a defender, will pull any thing up to 3.5 tonnes. 15000 miles pulling a fully laden 684 Int and no probs. Easy life.

Defender's no different to a Discovery I or II Mate, all coil sprung witha proper frame.
The Disco has got 100" WB and you can get 90" or 110" in a Defender. Towing with a 90" is awful and definitely not to be recommended and the 110" is worse off-road than a 100" Disco.

This year, 2014, will see the 10th Aniversary celebrations at Belrepayre Airstream and Retro Trailer Park in France (Perry's to those who have been!). We're calling in there at the moment and Perry tells me this year will be the biggest and best yet but he is being secretive about what he has in mind. It's the first weekend in August as usual and there are already Airstreamers booked up from all over Europe.
