A heck of a long drive yesterday, Shane.

Glad you made it safe and sound. Have a cocktail and put your feet up.

If you get really bored in JC -- it's easy since there's not much there -- you can head north on I-75 for an hour and visit Jaquas in Findlay, OH. If you like sporting guns, that's the Disney World of the trade. Unbelievable place!

Or drive down to Sydney. We found a breakfast place near the center of town that was pretty good. More a coffee shop than anything else, though they had lots of teas too. All I recall is that going into town it was on the right on a main street.

In JC, the Hobo restaurant is next to (west) the Airstream factory and it is kind of greasy. There's a decent restaurant east of the factory compound in an old house.

While going out of town during the day is enticing, if the techs have any questions, it is good to hang around. You can entertain yourself with your computer, buying stuff, talking to others about Airstreams or looking for executives to talk to. It is a small company and the building is not very big. The honchos' offices aren't either and they have desks made out of parts of Airstreams.

You go to the front of the administration building at an hour I can't remember—maybe 6:30 or 7— and tell the guy inside what you need. The time may be posted on the front door. He'll be on the left after you go through the doors. Then someone will come to the Terraport to take your trailer to the shop. Have the sewer, water and electric disconnected beforehand. They may want you to turn off the propane but if you have stuff in the fridge ask that it not be turned off. We have never turned it off.

Jackson Center & Floor Rot

Glad you made it safely. We dropped our 2008 Safari 27FB in Jackson Center Friday to have the floor repaired. During our January trip to CanOpener the support leg for the dinette table punched through the vinyl floor and into the rotten plywood below.

We checked it in Friday with Chris and then got to see the technician remove the dinette and peel back the vinyl. Quite a bit of water intrusion and rot in several locations. The technician believes the water came from the rear bumper under the lower beltline. They will replace the rotten plywood and seal at the bumper. The original vinyl is no longer available so it cannot be pieced. Therefore, the vinyl will have to be replaced all of the way from the rear of the trailer to the place the carpet begins in the bedroom area. We are having the current vinyl used in the Flying Cloud installed as the replacement.

Unfortunately for us this is not a warranty repair. We are the third owners and it is a 4 year old trailer. We decided to make the trip to the factory to ensure the job is done correctly (or hopefully better than it was when it was manufactured).

I was particularly disappointed at experiencing the floor rot given I paid a large Airstream dealer in the Northeast a substantial sum to inspect the trailer before I completed the purchase from an individual last August. I specifically asked the dealer's service department to check for floor rot. Needless to say, the dealer failed to identify the floor rot, advising us the unit was in good condition. Since purchasing the trailer I've stored it inside an enclosed warehouse, plus the trailer has only been used outside a total of 12 days (only 3 days with rain), so it is highly unlikely the extensive floor rot occurred after the inspection by the dealer in August 2011. When I arrived home after purchasing the trailer I inspected the roof and found signs of cracked sealant suggesting the roof inspection by the dealer was poor or did not happen. I now wonder if the dealer actually repacked the wheel bearings or checked out the brakes -- he was paid to do so.

We left the trailer in Jackson Center and will be back in 3 weeks to pick it up. We are also having a street side awning installed and a few other things checked. I'm hoping the service work at the factory is superior to what I've experienced with one of Airstream's top dealers. In talking to other Airstream owners I've heard positive reviews about the work at the mothership.

I hope all goes well with your Jackson Center experience.

You set it up on a scale? Fords may be, well, weak? Mine barely moves more than 1" with just over 1,000-lbs in TW.

Tell us it's the angle or the pavement or . . . . .

Glad you're "home". Keep the pics coming.

I was thinking the same thing. Have you looked at adjusting your hitch head better? Lower it on the shank some more and tilt the head back a few degrees. Your steering looks like it's affected some. I'm sure the ride will be better as well.
I too hope they will take good care of your trailer and get it back as good as new.
