Yep, by removing the table (if only temporarily, at times) will sure work. Thanks for the two sets of photos, folks! Very nice of you to take the time to answer our question, any posting these. Dave

Looks like the making of an Airstream group! I'll volunteer to bring my bass. Music just goes with an Airstream.

Great to know there's other musicians out there bringing along the instruments.
On the drumming side, anyone using electronic ie: Roland TD style due to space / weight or portable recording or live mixing rigs along?

Personally have a small but well equipped home studio, various elect, acoustic guitars, pedal steel, amps, keys, TD drums and would love to bring much of it on the road. Fear size and weight constraints in a 25ft would limit the herd. But could emagine how cool to have the various options on occasion.

Anyone doing this with some road experience and can recommend what works well for you? How about some unique stories or pics of your rigs or chance sessions out on the road?

Electronic drums are certainly an option but not necessarily less space depending on configuration and speaker(s). I have small accustic set that works well for "small venues."

Well said RichP21. Of course Real equipment real player certainly best if you can bring it or enlist when inspiration strikes. Otherwise, the lonesome guitarist or other instrument needing some background accompaniment, a compact 12volt friend as Boss Dr. 770 or 880 or like into house speakers could "fill" a rhythm void or live pad played, although surely less feel.... should the real deal not to be found or rockin another campsite.��

There's always room for a mandolin. They're better for close combat.

I'll just stick with my J200 and a voice reinforced by a lifetime of singing with rock bands. All this talk of amplifiers? Don't need 'em. Where are you playing, Wembley Stadium? Just go accoustic and enjoy that natural sound. Save the amps for the big gigs.

So right. Just cause you could, doesn't mean you should... amp wise. After all, the AS is by nature self contained and honest as a flat top.

Argosy Mobile Studio

I have recorded entire songs in my Argosy…..when the weather is nice. The furnace is too noisy, and electric heaters mess with the electronics. I leave the fridge off so that the counter doesn't get warm, and I can use that surface for computer and mixer. I have also used the Argosy as a vocal booth. I like privacy when recording vocals.

But I say…..play outside. Music is for sharing, and bringing people together. An audience should help keep the focus, and bring out the best in a musician.

I do most of my camping at Bluegrass festivals. Usually I don't get through one song with out musicians and singers joining in, then it turns into a party.

You folks make me jealous. I need to learn some jammin' stuff! I don't find that a crowd of other players shows up to help with Gavotte. Although, Jethro Tull played a mean Bouree. Thanks for all your suggestions and interest. Dave
