The weather here in St. Louis is wintry mix with sleet and snow right now, and I cannot wait to get down to the family in San Antonio.

As for the St. Louis area, I have never had any of my trailer polished in the area, but I would look into truck or plane polishing.

My understanding is that E.Stolz vintage trailers is defunct, no one answers the phone and building is abandoned. Did he turn back up somewhere?

Jerri,
He is working out of his house/acreage in NB. He has never returned my call or answered an email so don't feel like the lone ranger. I went to his place with Soldiermedic Steve.

plata I know a guy in Austin I have been sending some over to him I do polishing and have had an ad on the forms for a while but we are work camping in San Marcos for a few months and unable to travel to polish right now. he also does floor work and frame work his name is Sonido Kobra 512 803 0137, he has a shop close to airport rd and has 3 units being refirb with polish and floors. if you need more info you can PM me also If the prices people tell you make sure they are in line with the amount of work no hidden charges example when I bid on a polish I let the person Know that it includes the striping , the material and light removal and all material polished normally belt-line and above and reseal of seams, these are the things to look for and ask and get in writing. I have had to fix some units that others have done thats how I know this.

I went by Camper Clinic II the other day to get some waste fittings. I think Scorpiontimo was there buying some Bambi lights? The next day I saw on their blog a picture of the Go awful yellow 66ish safari.
Anyway, I picked up the flyer that I mentioned previously. It is for "Airstream Trailer Polishing" the guy's number is 512-799-1751 Scott.

His # is 512-803-0137, but I've never used him personally. As Others have said, he used to work for Eric Stoltz, and now has branched off to do some work on his own.

He can be seen posting on austin craigslist from time to time...

NB= New Braunfels??
So, if he doesn't want any new work, I guess there is no point in giving out his information on the web?
I got a Caravel last fall and finding someone to help us newbies...has been a major pain in the butt. Now, last sunday my husband was rear ended and it totalled our tow vehicle...but I can find someone to help us at least replace the axle, I will rent a T.V.!

Jerri,

I had my axle, wheels, brakes & springs all replaced by the local horse & utility trailer shop. I did source all the parts, to be sure they were right for my 1959 trailer, but they had no problem doing the work. You just want to make sure they understand where the frame is, for jacking purposes.

I had Tom Kaminski from TK RV's come this last Sunday and picked it up for us and took it back to his shop. Our tow vehicle had been crashed Sunday before last. So, he is going to look over all her systems and give us quotes. He has worked on Airstreams for years and had good references. The local gooseneck trailer place here would not touch RV's, the local RV place charged ALOT and did not have a lot of airstream experience...so we are excited we are finally going to get some work done!

Thanks for the suggestion,

Jerri

I have emailed and called Eric Stoltz looking for help and pricing before. Once I got an email back that was one sentence basically saying "I'm too busy to deal with you." That must be nice. The other times I got no response.

Experienced Airstream polisher available

I have an experienced Airstream polisher available. He has done work for me and I can recommend him. Takes about two weeks turn around, he provides polish, tools, supplies...everything. His primary job is polishing big trucks and wheels.....You must have seen how nice those units are. Last check it was around 100$ per foot. If you have ever polished an Airstream....you are probably looking for someone like this to do the next project. I am considering using him for my Winter clean up and prep for next Spring. PM me if you need help.

P.S. I wish I had him around when I got involved with doing my Flying Cloud last Spring.

Tell him I will hire him once we get to that point with the SOTR.
