Jackson Center Not So Confidential - Scoop

Not much scoop but at least a few things that are new. Took the tour today for the umpteenth time mainly because there were a couple of things I wanted in the store and figured I might as well get the 10% discount for tour takers.

Current production is 23 per week.

The 34' Classic is back. Initially production will be limited to 25 units but if the demand is there that will be extended.

The electrical cord for the new Furrion connectors has the a 3 bulb polarity checker built in so you can tell immediately if the CG is wired properly.

And last but not least those of you debating whether to change your interior lighting to LEDs now have another option - sell your current trailer and buy a 2011 as all interior lighting is LED. Now this is what Don told us but there was a new 34 on the line and it had at least some fluorescent lights so maybe the LEDs are only for the lower priced units.

I am guessing that the LED's are direct replacements for the halogen bulb fixtures.

I replaced all of mine in the dinette/galley area.

They DO make a difference in the amout of heat being output.

Now let's see:
- replace 29 halogen bulbs - approximately $350.00 or
- buy a 2011 trailer - approximately $75-80,000.

somehow I don't think I could convince the significant other on the logic of that one.!

Kamadeca.....get one of those unemployed wall street residential mortgage loan packagers to help you out and you'll get the 2011 with only $325 down! Less then the bulbs (isn't that how they were selling houses?)

You know, it's just your kind of lame thinking that kept the Canadian banks out of the mess ours found themselves in.

Somebody, please, point me to the road.

Al, do me a favor. Over in the terraport today is a 2005 22' CCD International. If you happen to go by tell Sharon that Carol says hi.

Can you see the factory geared up for Alumapalooza? Are you staying through for the rally? You HAVE to get a camera. Grab a disposable from the gas station. We at home need more reports.

I saw online for a dealer's ad that a new color scheme called Yellowstone is now available in some Airstreams. I hope Colonial will post their usual release of the new Airstreams.
