Those people are our age, Mike. That's just how good being next to an Airstream makes you look.

I have to wonder what percentage of new trailer owners join us here on the forums after their purchase?

In our travels (non-rallies) I can say that the vast majority (at least 80%) of the a/s's we've encountered have not heard of airforums....which amazes me, but to each his/her own!

I would guess they join around the same time they have to start fixing things...

These folks in upstate NY seem to have done pretty good on there own.


It took us a year after getting the Classic to find our way here.
Our dealer had closed and when I typed in "Airstream" on the Google, the forum was at the top of the list. We've dropped quite a few spaces since.

Alot, like myself, join before they buy. Trailmanor, the fold-up trailer has links to owners forums and there's plenty of criticism on those boards. Joined there before I bought also

I think you hit the nail on the head Toad. They have no control here.
On facebook they can remove any posts or replies they want,
since its their Facebook account. They can control the dialogue any way they like.

On Airstream's web site, the Facebook link is found under Community/Airstream On-line.
This is the "Community" Airstream marketing wants people to see.
I think they have a 5 year old making posts for them there. Not many people
are replying. I see topics like:

o Who's getting ready to carve their pumpkin Airstream!??!
o Happy Columbus Day! What discovery have you and your Airstream made today?
o If not sliver, what color would your Airstream be? hmm..
o Name 3 items you MUST have with you in your Airstream at all times…
o Which Kampgrounds of America, Inc. where you and your Airstream at last?

and on and on and on, its nauseating.

I'll never understand what goes through the minds of some marketing firms.
Like the Nissan commercial showing, in a serious light, a pickup truck going 140mph
to catch a jumbo jet's broken landing gear. Its OK to lie and stretch the truth, and
make virtual communities, all in pursuit of the all mighty buck.

Come on Airstream, control your customers with your product, not your marketing
department. Ahhh, I feel so much better. Sorry for boring you all.

It was true 5 years ago, and sorry to say it's still true....
