New to Forum, Avion Blasphemer

Hola, AS cousins, I've been using the forum for a couple weeks for information and advice on aluminium travel trailers. I have an '81 34V Avion (gasp!). I do appreciate all of the information and friendliness I've seen so far. Thank you, Chuck

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us. Saving a vintage Avion is a good thing, also.

Owned an Airstream trailer first, an Avion came along later, and then while on an Airstream hunting mission, stumbled onto a Spartan. Aluminum, riveted construction is the trailer(s) for me.

Greetings. If it is aluminum with rivets then it must be good.

Welcome to the forums. Yes, Avions are cool. We had one, a 23', and I actually think they were built better than an Airstream, although a little heavier and a little harder to pull because they are also not as aerodynamic. But still, aluminum and cool.

Again, welcome.

Welcome to AIR Chuck,

Love the Silver Avion rigs. We have a 1973 TravelCader 25' that we really enjoy. Stark differences between it and our Airstream, but both great rigs.
