I've seen the work they do and this late 90's Classic got polished, modern graphics, panel replacement where necessary, and new awnings all done at P&S. The owner was very pleased as this trailer had sat for years in Florida and had a bad case of clear coat peel and oxidation.

Our trailer sat in a storage lot in Naples FL for 6 months over the winter which caused much of the need for our S & P restoration.
I'm desperately trying to find covered parking in Naples when we return there for the winter.
If anyone knows of a place please let me know!
Many thanks

Our Airstream was already in need of attention and had planned the restoration, the FL sun was just the final nail. I believe that Florida sun will continue to shine when we return with the trailer for another 6 months. This time we'll need to protect her. I will find a sheltered spot now that it's going through S & P's proven restoration process!

I appreciate your continual concern on my decision making process.

I hate to break it to you but.....Airstream are far from perfect, just leaving the factory.

I suggest you pick up a buffer polisher and work through four or five grades of Nuvite, the same spot, over and over and over and over and over again; covered head to toe in black residue wearing a full helmet and hazmat suit in the middle of summer.......and lets see how picky you are.

My hat's off to the guy that does it as his arms must be like Popeye's.

Cheers

I would also like to add that the polishing process can amplify and exaggerate imperfections that were not as visible before.

Just saying, the imperfections were there all the time, you just didn't notice them.

Cheers
Tony

That's a nonsensical comparison.

They get paid a HUGE chunk of money...THAT'S why they are expected to do a perfect job.

The level of DIFFICULTY of the work is a moot point. They're getting paid!!!! A lot!!!!!!

Just because it is admittedly a horribly difficult job doesn't require the PAYER to receive less than great work.

Building a bridge is hard, too!!! And the companies that build them get paid BILLIONS of dollars! Should we accept shoddy bridge work skimping on the details just because they are EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to build???

I have head nothing but good things about P&S Trailers, good luck on finding somebody better. The home of Airstream, Jackson Center put an axle on 1965 Caravel and they did it wrong, shredded a tire on a camping trip, they did made good on it however. Even brand new Airstream's have problems, there is no such thing as "perfection caliber".

If there was ever a nonsensical comparison, your response would take the prize.

I was refering to a dimple, wave in the aluminum,stone hit or fairly deep scratch that would be undetected, or not easily seen before polishing but completely visible after. What do you want P&S to do about it; replace the panel????

Your expectations are unrealistic and unobtainable being that Airstreams are not perfect to begin with.

I'd hate to work for you, or be your boss (your wife).

Cheers
Tony

Yes, pictures of the most perfect Airstream in the world please.......Heck, make sure you post a picture of your perfect wife standing by your perfect Airstream; trust me, they cost a lot of money too.

Cheers

P & S will also be upsizing our tires to 16" Michelin's, putting on new aluminum wheels, & removing rust on the frame and repainting it and the belly wraps with the appropriate paint.

I'll certainly post "after" pictures and be glad to honestly answer any questions regarding the restoration once they have finished.

I'm pretty darned excited to see the end result.

I've not used P&S (yet), but from friends who have, I would not hesitate to take my '15 Classic to them if it needed the services they provide. Once in awhile, we seem to attract folks who like to invoke controversy by focusing on negatives. Often, they comment on specific features of MY trailer that demonstrate they've never even been in my model. I have sworn off "negaholics" and have found it just easier to block reading anything they post. This company has been in business a long time and deserve a fair shake.
