I am finding this site most useful. We are in the final throws of deciding on buying a 25C. I have received very useful feedback from many members of this group.

I belong to the Yahoo group run by "Hunter" and am finding that the discussion threads are more around Internet access and Phones on the road with little to do about Airstreams.

I find I spend more time on this forum now.

Thanks for the good work

I haven't had much time lately to write-in, however both Pete and I reference this site frequently for anything Airstream, it is the premier site in my lil' ole opinion. Hey Andy--thanks, a million Airstream miles over.

This site is an addiction. Love, love, love it. (Which is why it is my home page) My only suggestion for improvement would be to make it moble friendly ... perhaps a mobile version for us avid smart phone users so our old eyes don't have to work so hard.

Thumbs up

When I first started looking for an Aistream I was a bit lost to say the least. In Kansas City the closest dealers were St Louis, Chicago and Denver. I went to Chicago and St Louis and they only had new units (way out of my price range) and the salesmen were nice but couldn't answer my questions I had about filform, insulation, towing etc. It was "they are the best trailer, easy to tow, and hold their value etc. I had one dealer swear I could toe a 23 ft international with my Acura! It was all about the sale. Then I found Air! What a learning experiance and tons of great people! Not only did I find a very lightly used 2006 19ft CCD on the classifieds but also my inspector, hitch set up, maintaince, where to camp, and new slip covers (had pea green yuk) and some great people. Without this site I was totally lost and now each day I learn something new, laugh and have been able to help where I can.

I had a VW TDI and I thought it was the best forum but now it's a close second! Keep up the good work and I will be on here several times a day! Were all a bit addicted!

Thanks again.

Let Me Count The Ways

Let's see, I lost weight, the sex life is a lot better, my skin, eyes and teeth are all healthy and glowing......

.....No wrong forum......

I am broke, spent all my money on that damn Airstream, my wife left me and the kids for a Harley Critter ...

But other than that, this site is the top of my list. when I feel a little down it is time to think Airstreams and browse the Portal to see what is up. Then, on to subscribed threads to check up on restorations threads of interest and then real fantasy time.....the Classifieds,... got to be a deal there somewhere nearby and really affordable.....

Yup, now all I need is a job....

Best place I have found on the internet for AS related info and advice.

I started checking it before buying our AS and still check it daily now that we are AS owners. Have learned a great deal from the many helpful folks here.

Many thanks for making it available.

The forum is very useful, particularly to someone doing a renovation. I trust you're looking for more than a simple affirmation, however, and want some constructive feedback. I think the search function could be better. The visual appearance is familiar, but a bit cluttered. I'd like the "moderation philosophy" to be more transparent. The blog feature could be a great asset, but it seems underutilized... though I'm not sure why. Menu customization might be a nice option, particularly for those of us who just never hit some buttons.

As they say, Andy, anything worth doing is worth doing better.

I love this forum and don't visiting any other - I started on a yahoo group, but it doesn't compare to this. I have found info here that I never would have found anywhere else and everyone I've met through here has been great. It added a new element to our lives that we didn't even know we were missing and now I can't go more than a day or so without .

As for improvements...
-could the quick links box on the left be customized by each member?
-will the member map work again? I keep hoping. Maybe in relationship to this map is could there be a "rally" map with all the rallies marked on it and one could click on a state or the mark to see what could be going on there?
-is there a way to look up members by state? I thought there was, but that was a long time ago and recently when I wanted to find someone, I tried and couldn't. Anyway, I'd love to see that feature. (Maybe it was tied in with that member map...)

Thanks Andy and Moderators for all you do!!!

hopefully those reply'n realize this thread was last used in 2003...

before post #18 yesterday.

i'm sure feedback is still helpful and there are a lot of thread soliciting input over the years,

check the announcements, community polls, feedback sub forums...

here for example is a poll also going back to 2003 but STILL in regular use/update mode...


there have also been specific exchanges on...

rules/content/new sub forums/organizational tweaks, the search, frequency of use, and so on...

often what is available in the current version of vBULLETIN drives feature tweaks,

along with crazy ideas from us !


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
