Well, if you are in Bloomsburg, you HAVE to check out our "Kampers near Knoebels" Campout at Indian Head Campground. We have held this event every Labor Day weekend for the past 14 years. We welcome all Airstreams, Scottys, VW campers, and anything else vintage or cool.

Come on down unless it is too close to you, in which case, just stop in to say HI! (We come up from Strasburg, Lancaster County). We will have our Bambi II there this year, and we expect at least a few other Airstreams to be in the mix as well!

Welcome to the Forums! Ben and Lynn

Awesome! All you have to do is call and reserve a site (Section A) for W/E. The new website and all weekend details, including how to reserve, can be found here:

We also have a Facebook presence- just search Kampers near Knoebels.

We'll look forward to meeting you!

Hi sc, glad to meet you. Always nice to see another triple axle Airstream. We have a 34 Limited built in 86. It's been in the family since new. It has held up well and has many, many miles of traveling on it. It is very comfortable for us. We're getting new upholstery and curtains this winter.

I also had a soft spot in my floor about the size you mentioned. It was at the rear outside storage compartment. Ours is a twin bed floor layout. The soft spot was due to a rain water leak at the seam above the bedroom window. I just "scabbed" a new piece of subfloor in that spot. I have applied polyurethane to the entire subfloor to help protect it from moisture. Our trailers were build with OSB subfloors, which isn't the greatest material for resistance to moisture damage.

I did replace the belly pan due to corrosion of the rivets causing the metal to start to fall away. I took the opportunity to inspect and paint the frame. It was in good shape on our trailer except the rear most cross member. I also installed new hard board insulation instead the the fiberglass batting.

You will enjoy traveling in your Airstream, and enjoy working on it. There is always something to do.

Hi dbj!
Wow good to know that so many people are enjoying their 34 footers as well! As you can see I have only had the trailer here at the house for a few days, but it's quickly getting torn apart to make it our own. I have found a total of 4 spots that are soft, but it appears that after some very heavy rains, the sealing job took care of all the leaking spots. The trailer had been neglected for many years due to the declining health of the previous owner. All the caulk around the vents windows etc was completely dried and rainy out. I used sikaflex after scraping everything clean. I plan to replace the rotted particle board with marine plywood or something a bit more robust as you did. The frame looks brand new underneath, and the belly own looks great!

All in all I think the trailer is very nice and solid, but just need to fix a few years of neglect as I said. 😄. Very much looking forward to meeting some great new friends on the road!!

Looks like a great start!

Keep some of the carpet for 'door mat'... and to throw in the mud when you get on your knees outside the AS for hooking up water, sewer, etc... or for working on stuff.

When it is really messy, toss it out... and replace...

Hi there cwf,
Great looking rig!!!! Lol the carpet I took out wasn't even fit for laying in the mud.... It appears the previous owner had several animals, and it they must not have been let out very frequently... Unfortunately the carpet had to be removed to kill the odor, but we really wanted laminate anyway. ;0)

sc, your new trailer has a front interior layout similar to ours with the street side dinette. We removed our carpet too. Carpet doesn't make a lot of sense in a camper, or with pets. We put a laminate floor down and have found it very good over the years. I dont like the vinyl floor I put down in my old Trade Wind.
