Welcome aboard, Ron!

Hi Ron:

Congratulations on your new Overlander! The VIN is on the plate near the door; use that in applying for title.

In 6 weeks we are having a large vintage Airstream rally just "up river" from you in Salida. Detail are here:

2010 VAC Rally Information

Open house is Saturday 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., when many of us will have our vintage Airstreams open for viewing. We are glad to show you what we've done to our trailers and to answer your questions about features, restoration, upgrades, polishing, etc. You'll learn more in one afternoon by seeing trailers in person than from spending hours on the internet. We can also plug you in to local resources for restoration, refurbishment, supplies, etc. If it all possible, you should visit us.
