Cast aluminum tongue jack stand

We stayed at the Pennwood Airstream CG over July 4 weekend. My neighbor had an impressive looking cone shaped cast aluminum tongue jack stand. He said he purchased it from a vendor at one of the international rallies but could not remember the name of the vendor.

Would any forum members know the name, address and phone number of this vendor?

Thanks!!!

Does anyone have any recent information about where to purchase this jack stand...or one similar? The phone number's been disconnected, and nothing comes up with Google. Thanks. - Roy

I need one to make my Argosy more saleable -- I'm getting tired of the old 8x8 chunk of western red cedar... Shari, looks like we'll all have to chip in on your dues this year -- though VAC & WBCCI shouldn't charge you a penny! Have a great week as an up-an-comer...

Airstream Store

I went to Jackson Center yesterday and they had a flattish piece of cast aluminum - sort of like a square saucer - about 8 to 10 inches per side that was meant for the same task. It had "Airstream" on it and cost about $35. So, what did yours cost. BTW yours is much prettier.
