Airstream School/camp

Does there exist or has anyone thought of a school or camp lasting perhaps 1 or more weeks where folks could get together and share tools, labor and ideas possibly under the direction or an Airstream restoration expert where major chores such as panel replacement, rewiring, axle replacement or polishing could be accomplished. I would be particularly interested in something like this since I live in the city and keep my trailor at a storage lot some distance out of town. I guess I'm thinking of something similar to the boat building schools/camps that they have in Maine and other sailorly places.

This is a great idea! I've wondered about the possibility of a Midwest Restoration Rally. Don't know how the logistics of a week long event would work, but I bet you could get some serious work done!

That's the idea of the 4CU Restoration Rally and many of the VAC Rallies. The Resto Rally is pretty hands on and most VAC Rallies have demos and Q & A "How To" sessions.
