I'm still here, I just don't post much. My GT is in limbo, as I travel for work so much now that it's hard to get out and go camping. Company finally hired another FE (Flight Engineer) so I might be able to get more time off other then a day here and a day there. I've been the sole FE for about 3 years.

Enjoy the 27 foot rehab. Check out my thread for my approach. Not traditional, but very functional

Still here, just stalled on the reno of little Jalopy (74 GT). 2 kids came 15 months apart after we started. We moved up to a 2016 30 IS to make it turn key with the kids for now. Jalopy is still there, just waiting. I always found this site very helpful on the technical side of things. Much more than I could ever find on Pinterest and Facebook. As far as design ideas though, social media sites and (Mr./Ms.?) Google was always more insightful though IMHO.

Still here. I post as I can just like I work on the old camper as I can. There may be less posts and threads because with a google search you can find most of the information and pics of what you are looking for. With such a huge foundation of information that has been built and categorized over the many years a running thread might be more novelty than necessity.

My interests are in vintage renovations. Unfortunately, I have to wade through a lot of threads finding those that interest me. I'm sure all posts interest someone, but not me. In renovating our 55, I have read many posts by those of you on this thread and I appreciate your knowledge and experience. if all threads were of renovating vintage Airstreams, I wouldn't get anything done on the 55 due to reading all the posts. I do appreciate all the knowledge and experience of those who do take the time to publicize their renovation. And I appreciate those who answer my questions via a PM. I'm a newbie compared to you guys. Thanks to those who share their experiences. Time to go polish. Bubba

We started our off-site blog mostly to allow family to keep up with what we are doing. It sort of evolved into reno updates and trying to document information that I wasn't able to find elsewhere, so it would be available to others. I kept intending to start an Airforums reno thread, but it was hard enough to keep up with everything else. Now I mostly post updates on Instagram, since that's easiest.

I might do a thread of photos when I'm 100% finished, though I'm not looking forward to critiques of my hitch choice, TV, design decisions, etc that I see elsewhere. It's my home, so I'm not sure I want to put in much effort to invite comments from some opinionated people who think it's their job to tell me I'm wrong.

I want to give back to this community, so I watch for threads where I might be helpful. But keeping up with a reno thread is a project in itself. Maybe next trailer, if I accidentally buy another one some day.

Lurking and commenting when necessary. My life changed regarding air streams when my partner suffered a food borne Brain injury (6 years ago) and I had to move to a more accommodating motorhome.
Eventually I will get up the energy to snag a 350 le motorhome and put a proper motor in It.

I'm not an old timer but I get a lot of useful information from archives.

Honestly, hopefully no one gets offended here, but for forum site is clunky and needs a GUI face lift. It's still in Windows 95 aesthetics. The information on here is priceless, that's why I keep coming back.

Pinterest is taking over because its easy to post pics and it flows well.

What happened to all the vintage trailer people?

Hi, first time posting, but have been an avid admirer for years, reading your great posts. I am in the process of restoring a 1069 Airstream, Globetrotter Land Yacht, 21ft. I had a 1969 18ft I restored many years ago and sadly sold and have looked for years for another one, found this one a 90 yr old guy was using as a garden shed for years. I am doing a body on frame restoration, have pulled all the cupboards out and have varathaned them, putting hardwood on the floors, but undecided to to paint or put new vinyl on the walls.

Still here, most days. Just that a lot of the recent topics are of little interest to me. I will work with PayPal when necessary so that is not a deal killer. I suspect a lot of us have been out in the world enjoying the coach and discussions may pick up with winter.

AirForums needs to categorize newer Airstreams to filter better. Just a suggestion.
