JC Sunday arrival

We plan on arriving at JC Sunday for a Monday appt. Will we be able to get into the "campground"?

If not, and our appointment is for Monday, but no exact time was mentioned, would an 11am arrival be ok?

Questions that I have thought of when JC is closed. I know what they say about prior planning, but total prior planning didn't happen.

This having fun is wearing me out!

Pat

Yes, you can get into the campground. They do not have it gated. You can park yourself and check in with the office early on Mon. The deal will be whether there are spaces available. At this time of year I am sure they have lots of business. And AS campers are welcome to use the campground as they are passing through the area without an appt. @$10 a night. They often use their parking lot next to the front office as overflow for parking if you don't need the electricity etc.
We have stayed at Grand Lake St. Mary's SP which is not too far away. It is a beautiful place with great parking spots and clean restrooms and showers.

hi pat

as of today there are about 18-20 open spaces....

with about 10 spaces occupied.

there are 3 pods with about 8 spaces each in a wagon wheel design.

the most northern pod is vacant but that could change tomorrow.

ALL sites are back in but easy without trees to kiss.

all utilities are at the 'hub' of the wheel and the trailers are the spokes...

full hook ups sans cable.

tasty water!

old style wally arrangement and i like it.

ALL service appts are first/come first serve, be in line and check in before 7am...

show up at 11am monday and depending on the repairs it could be 7am on tuesday....

so come on sunday and get up early on monday.

we can explain all of this sunday when you arrive.

just stop by and say hello, as i'm in the most southern pod.

look for the rubber chicken.

cheers

Airstream Factory

The store inside was being 'restrored' last week.
Still a few items you could buy.
A cool 'Airstream' fold up bike, did not see a price.

Jackson Center has an old movie house that is still open and showing current movies.

Tours are at 2pm each day.

Klattu, when did you take your photos? They had the "Everglades Unit" in the shop last August when I was there and it was gutted at that time. Also, the Burgundy F-250 with the Safari Front Bedroom was there at that time, too.

They had been there for about five weeks, give or take, the first week of August having all kinds of large and small things done. It was a mother and her two daughters plus two or three Dachshunds.

I had picked up on the theater marque, but couldn't believe my eyes when I recognized the Airstream from last summer. I thought surely the photos were from two different visits.

We love our Airstream and have been truly blessed that we haven't had to have a long list of warranty items. I consider it to be a rather short list considering the hand built nature of Airstreams and compared to the list I have seen from others.

I can't comment on the validity of the items that the mother described to me when I was there, (it just seemed she had grimlins in certain non-Airstream products that wouldn't remain fixed) but I must admit if I spent as much time at JC as she and her daughters have, I would definitely have a different level of affection for my beloved "Changes" and Airstreams in general. I commend her for sticking with her Airstream for this long and hope she get everything to her satisfaction.

Well, there I was...

Just found out how close Jackson Center was to where I was working last week.

Crused over after work, about 4pm, but missed the tour.

Would have taken some aerial photos if known, maybe next time.

Lots of covered bridges in Union County area,
7 plus one old (1914) steel frame.
Follow Darby Creek, most cross over it.
About 30 minutes from Airstream factory.

Anyone in this shot?







Typical Ohio farm, around Bellfontaine +/-

If you're having some work done on your trailer, we've read they want you out by 7:00 a.m. so they can tow it into the shop. Does that mean disconnected, ready to roll at 7:00 a.m.?

Also, if your service takes more than a day, do you get your trailer back at night, or do you have to go to a hotel?

We'll be arriving there on Sunday, September 30 for our appointment on Monday October 1st. Just wanting to know how to prepare for the visit.

We were at JC last year for a couple of days near July 4th. We visited the city pool (I mentioned it in a post earlier in this thread) and we took in a movie at the theatre. It is a cute little theatre and they were redecorating at that time. Very, very inexpensive and they actually had a recent release.

They will come for the trailer as early as 7:00 if you have already been through the check-in at the service department. You will get your trailer back each night and they will come for it each morning at 7:00 am thereafter. Give or take. So you do need to have everything disconnected when you go to the service department to check in and every morning before 7:00 am after that...or you will be scurrying to get dressed and un-hooked in a hurry! Overnight camping in the Terraport is free while having service performed so you don't have to spring for a hotel. But at the same time, there are no amenities except hook ups and cable, IIRC. Cable I can't remember for sure, but I seem to think there was.

JC Terraport

We are at the Terraport now, after a very nice day of having warrenty work done.

2air was nice enough to stop by and say hello to my husband and me. He has written several answers to questions about several items. It was nice to put a face to the very helpful helper!

We set the alarm for 6am this morning and were inside the service dept before 7am. We signed in as required, and even though we were early, we were #4. They call you in order and fill out the paperwork. All went smoothly, and the few minor problems we had were taken care of.

I went on the factory tour-lots of walking, but worth while.

The Terraport is nicely arranged and in great condition. There is no cable and to get wifi you have to have a name and password. If you are arriving on Sunday and want wifi, call ahead and get the information you need to connect when you arrive.

All in all, very pleasant experience, as is most every thing connected with Airstreams.

Pat
