Here is a Classic LTD curbside shot...you can see some of the internal work going on as well. BTW, all 2004s have the cool looking retro badging from what I can tell.....and the CCDs have a special CCD badge under the cool looking retro model name badges.

This is getting to the end....just a few odd shots here and there of the factory from various shots. We had a bit more time as Brandi and I were the only two on the tour.....many thanks again to Don for all of his time!

Utility door fabrication. Keep in mind that they fabricate a ton of stuff, even down to the LP tank covers.

and my last pic for now....an above floor shot of some of the shells being constructed.

I hope you all enjoyed these as much as I did. I would strongly suggest if you have the time, to go see Jackson Center. The facility itself is not really what you would expect, but as I said the folks are really nice to hang with and the factory tour, well, you know what I think already.

Again, thanks to Don, Jim and Ronald for their time and big thanks to all the Airstream employees that shared their time with us. The factory was at full speed and busy with activity. It was an exp that I won't soon forget!

From the nothern suburbs it was approx 280 miles to Jackson Center.

If I can swing the vacation for the homecoming, I will surely go again. As cloud said, you can go time and time again, and still find great interest in what they do there!

Glad you all liked the "tour".

Eric

WOW! Thanks for the pics! They are interesting. I'll have to make that tour next time I am in Ohio.

Does this mean the facility was disappointing?

Thumbs up I can almost hear the power tools and smell the sawdust ...

Great pics and tour, Eric.

Looks like I will have to visit the factory when ever I make it back to Ohio.
