Can your airstream roof stand up to the snow?

You bet it can! This is my trailer last weekend:




Didn't seem to suffer any ill effects. I did knock off as much as I could as we will probably get another foot yet this winter.

Can you? Sure...stay on the rivet line, but do so with caution.

I never got on the roof to knock the snow off. Did it all from a ladder.

When mine got snowed on, I just let it sit there. When the sun came out, it melted it off, even in the cold. The alum took in the heat and did all the work for me...with my luck I'd have gotten up there and either would have fallen off or damaged the Safari.

Well I could just see all that snow getting very wet and even heavier and wanted to nip a potential problem in the bud.

Hello wacnstac,

What a terrific picture of your Airstream in winter.

I'm the editor of the newsletter of Ontario Unit of the WBCCI and am including a winterizing checklist in the next issue.

May I use you picture on a one-time basis to accompany the checklist? It's a real eye-catcher!

Thanks.

Duncan McCallum
