Red face Airstreamers in Asheville, NC

I'm not sure if this is the place to post this, but I would like to find other Airstream owners in the Asheville, NC area. My husband and I have moved to Asheville, but don't know many people in town, and would love to meet some. We just returned from a three month trip out West in our Safari. We will be around for a few months. Thanks!

Debbie, you just missed our Alumalina rally at Tom Johnson Camping Center in Marion about a week ago. We will gather again in March in Charlotte. In the mean time reach out to Chillpoints, he is from Asheville, and is a member here on the forums.

Hi Debbie,

We're just down the road and frequent the Asheville area. We'll be camping in the Black Mountain area this weekend. PM us if you'd care for some fireside socialization on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday evening.

We love Asheville! There is a strong southeast contingent in general, and specifically a really fun gathering this weekend in Hiawassee, GA (Falluminum) at the GA Mountain Campgrounds if you can make it! I think there may be a site or two left - not sure; 30 units meeting to have fun.

Which campground around Asheville can you recommend? Looking for max 30min from downtown. Quiet setting and good wifi.

I hate that I missed Old Tom Johnson I used to go there just to look. There is a KOA campground really close to my house between Sawnnanoa and Black Mt. And there are some smaller campgrounds in East Asheville. I am minutes frome all of this. But I am going to NYC for a week or two the best carnival on earth!

NC,

'Winter before last I spent 171 days Way Down South, visiting 38 US cities with my rig.

Mama Gertie's Hideway near Ashville was the BEST, the FINEST, the CLEANEST campground encountered.

Check the Trip Advisor reviews here. You will rarely see reviews for an RV park as good as these :

Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground (Swannanoa, NC) - Campground Reviews - TripAdvisor

Tell Tom and Roxanne that the Canadian with the MINI sent yah.
