Well, at least nothing bad happened while you spent those 2 nights at our place. I never got a chance to ask you if the "Friendly Local Airstream Dealer" refunded your money for the 1st service call after they found the problem on the 2nd try.

Michelle, that's a big ding! If you're on the way back north next week you could come park next to Airstream One and everyone would think the dent was in the right spot. I've got not quite as big a ding on the same spot. I'll be parked out behind the Orlando Convention Center all week Wednesday thru Saturday for the PGA Merchandise Show.

Becky,
I enjoy our chat as well. I am planning on I-40 west in March. Does that run near you?

Whatever it was I am better of it hitting the trailer than the truck. It would have made a mess out of the windshield. That would have put a dent in my travel plans.

they did not refund the money. I am sending the bill to Airstream. They will pay.
Sander's did do the research that led to the solution.

If you're coming west in March, drop down to I-20 to have David Tidmore and the crew at Roger Williams Airstream, Weatherford, Texas (just west of Ft. Worth) repair your dent. Give David a call @ 1-800-378-5883 and you'll recognize immediately that you're talking to an expert. I've had my trailer there for numerous things over the past year and have watched them ply their trade on several occaisions. David and Denver truely are perfectionist.

I already contacted the factory. I will be in PA in early March. It will only be a few hours to the Factory.

I don't want to make small of the problems you have had but consider this! They were all material things - dents- broken glass -

I think you have made several new friends and belong to a group that cares for you - what is it that the commercial states "Priceless"-

A Cracked windshield on my truck right in front of the driver.

And now something landed on my trailer while travelling down I-75 north of Ft Myers. Big, Huge Dent! About $3000 to fix.

The first one was discovered at my sisters. Tire had to be replaced. Second one was discovered yesterday as I was chocking the tries at the RV place.

The cracked windshield occured in the rain on the way to the Can Opener. A rock hit a the bassed of the windshield right by the VIN plate. I watched this grow over several days.

The paint can happened at Atlantic and Kernan in Jacksonville. There were several of them in the road and as much as I tried I could not miss them all. Fortunately I hit the sky blue one so it is not that noticeable.

And yesterday I heard something hit the truck or trailer rolling down I-75 yesterday afternoon around 1600-1630. I looked in the rear view mirrow and could see nothing. I kept going for another hour or so. When I got out to look at my parking spot at the RV park. I saw it. I was pissed. I never saw it so it came from above. Something was thrown or fell of a bridge.

I even said to the service folks yesterday that my trailer is now 100% again. That did not last long.


I am curently in Nalpes visiting with my Aunt. I am supposed to be heading to Key West on Monday but I am not sure that is a good idea. Whats next rouge wave sweeping everything into the ocean?

Actually depending on who you talk to I am leaving Florida for the Conch Republic. So I guess I am good for a few days. I will be at the Boyds Key west Campground until Saturday. Stop by if you are in the area PM first. I will be either sailing, Snorkling or Kayaking most of the time.

I am thinking bad karma in this state.
Hey Michelle,

I'm in Naples, working my tail off, of course, but where are you parked? I get around to most of the RV parks here, so I just might stop by if I'm in the vacinity! 239-601-8650

You DO realize that once you cross that 7 mile causeway, that you have indeed left the USA and you are in Conch-Land. But then again, you also leave the USA when you enter Miami!! I'm sure your karma will improve by a HUGE amount when you get there. Be sure to tip one back at Sloppy Joe's for me.......
