Hello from Ohio

I have been a lurker for a while but I finally registered. The wife and I do not have an AS or any TT at the moment, but it's our plan to get one in the next year or so for weekend and vacation trips and then do some long trips after retirement (8-10 years). I will use the next year to educate myself about Airstreams, tow vehicles, hitches, etc so that I can make good decisions when the time comes.

Thanks to all that post on these forums as it is very helpful to people like me that are just starting down the path to AS ownership.

Hi from another set of Ohioans! You have already found the greatest asset for your educational adventures in finding your Airstream. Ohioans are a very active bunch of campers! We have lots of folks camping around the state. We post on a thread here on the forums and meet up to have fun! Hope you will find us at one of those campouts and join us for the openhouse at one of our informal rallies. We gather in various places around the state and invite others to join us. You are welcome to show up and take a peek at all of the great Airstreams that we have.

Here are a couple of links that you might have fun reading about:

Questions are always welcome!!!

Hey Jerry,

Glad you've joined here. Feel free to ask questions and opinions as you negotiate your way towards Airstream ownership.

Unfortunately the dealership in Columbus has closed, but the silver lining is that you are about an hour away from the Mother Ship - Jackson Center!
Go for a visit and take the tour - it is an afternoon well spent - but leave your credit card at home. The store at the main office is LOADED with AS branded merchandise and parts and we never get out of there without dropping a couple of hundred bucks.
Let us know of any questions you have!

Hamdstead, Kevin, Redhawker, Tlavergne and MaxAs - thanks for the welcome!

Loudruff, I will check out the the groups you mention and see if we can attend an openhouse event.

Steve & Susan, going to the AS factory has been on my list for a while. There may be some AS logo merchandise in my future!
