Home again HOT HOT HOT

We left at about 8:30 and arrived in Jackson Center around noon where the temperature was over 90. We ate lunch at Hobo’s and then filled the Suburban at the Shell station. After a quick look at the Excella we headed into the Factory office area and paid the bill. I met briefly with Chris and Kevin who were able to answer all my questions. At 2pm we took the factory tour which was OUTSTANDING. By now the temperature was 95 degrees so it was a very hot walk from the offices to the factory. If you love your Airstream you need to take the tour. After a brief visit to the factory store we were on the road at 4pm. The drive back to Michigan was uneventful but about 20 miles from home we got lots of rain. The Airstream passed Mother natures leak test.

The door side of the Excella looks brand new. I could not be happier.
