Do you have a description of the TV on Hwy 18? That might be of help to someone on the road to help locate your trailer.

A nearby business captured the trailer getting on highway 18 west bound at 6:38am! The unit was locked, the stabilizer jacks were down, and we have tongue locks on every unit! ( yes we have all the keys and the title).
I fear these are thieves that have knowledge of our schedule or operation, VERY disturbing. It is a realty that there are bad people that do bad things and every precaution taken will only deter but can not always stop thieves.

The unit is a 2012 31 foot Classic. We are going to put a reward of $2,500 out to try and get some leads. The police sent out an APB for Washington, Oregon, and the Boarder Patrol at the US/Canadian boarder. Can't hide 31 feet of silver very easily.

At the end of the day we will not let this dissuade us from our passion for Airstream and all the wonderful things this product brings to our lives: memories, adventures, and family time!

Merry Christmas to ALL of you and Happy New Year!

Ted, Merry Christmas......and I hope lots of Airstreams will be rolling off your lot in 2012 (in happier circumstances - purchased, not stolen!)

I wish you had opened your Seattle dealership a little earlier, as I would have certainly taken a look at your extensive inventory. (Purchased my trailer February, 2011). The only AS dealer in B.C. has a very limited selection. I am sure you will find many potential Airstream customers from the Vancouver, B.C. area headed your way!

I'd still love to pop into your dealership and look around someday. (Am only 1 1/2 hours from Seattle).

Thank-you for bringing more Airstreams into the PNW.

Regards,
FaN

Thanks for asking! We are working on some leads that look promising but I do not want to share to much on a public forum.

I hope all is well with you!

Ted
