VIDEO from Airstream Factory in Jackson Center!

Hi all, I thought you guys might enjoy the video we just posted from our recent visit to Jackson Center. Included is footage from the tour, the grounds, the customer lounge, and some of the vintage trailers out front.

Great video! I really enjoyed it. My wife and I were just there about 3 weeks ago and took lots of pictures of the same things.

Very talented and well done. Thanks for posting.

Thanks everyone! We really enjoyed our time at the factory. We stayed at the Terraport for three nights because we had some work done on our Airstream. (Got a couple of pesky leaks fixed.) Airstream hospitality was really outstanding.

We tried to put together a video that captured all elements of the experience, with a little bit of history thrown in to boot. That's a tall order for 5 minutes! Thanks for taking the time to watch it.

Great video! I thought that filming inside the factory was forbidden, but I guess not. I have enjoyed various episodes of your videoblog. Your professionalism really makes them stand out. Thanks for all of your work.

Thank you! And actually, you are correct -- filming & photography inside the factory is officially forbidden, so we got permission from Airstream beforehand. They gave us a nice solo tour.

Very Nice! Loved the eposode. Thanks for sharing. Your video blog is my favorite. It's fun watching you "make history" when we are "reviewing histories" at home.

Thank you! With all of the stuff available on the Web these days, I'm honored that folks find enjoyment in our website.

I think we're all "making history" in our own way, making family memories with our Airstreams. I've received lots of emails from people who grew up Airstream camping with their parents and grandparents.

It was strangely appropriate that our 99th video took place at the Airstream factory! Fortuitous timing, and the folks at Airstream couldn't have been any nicer.

I heard that if you take some of the silverish metal of the airstreams in your hand, and crush it up and let go --it will straighten right back up...just like water! Sean your the greatest. A true artist in a wonderful element.

Your videos are so well done. They are genuinely worth watching. The highest compliment came from my wife who walked in on me watching the factory tour and said that it looked very professional. My wife is not easily impressed :-)

Thanks guys! I've poured a lot of "blood sweat and tears" into those videos (just ask my wife, ha ha), and it's rewarding when they find an audience. They are sort of like songs...some work better than others, but I think the Airstream factory visit turned out great! It helps to start with such an appealing location. For an Airstreamer, visiting Jackson Center really is a special experience.
