We will definitely be taking it to National and State Parks. Weíve installed solar, and we just had wiring discreetly installed for HAM radio. We love it. It had the Badlands decor. The previous owners sold it with all of the bells and whistles...except the Park passes. Nothing to quibble about. It was a good deal.

Every time we are in it, we both relax. There is something about the interior that is very peaceful to us.

Andy at Holiday Travel Trailers, in Albuquerque, is brilliant! He stays up to date on all things Airstream, training, you name it. You can tell that he really enjoys Airstreams.

So...for us, the Pendleton is wonderful. We will also be taking it to Civil War battlefields.

Best wishes to ALL Airstream owners/lovers. Itís our first ever trailer, and we are enjoying becoming part of the traveling community.
Congrats on your Pendleton. We recently moved to Santa Fe from Austin TX so our travels were a bit limited this year. Have not been to as many National Parks as we'd like, but once settled in we'll be able to spend more time on the road. We just returned from Alumalina, in Cleveland, SC. Went to surprise some friends who we knew would be there. It's gotten to be a pretty big event with 168 Airstream rigs this year and over 300 people. Saturday was open house day but it rained like mad all day. It didn't stop a number of couples from knocking on our door or ringing the doorbell and saying "Would you mind showing us your Pendleton?" over the 5 days we were there.

That being said, it was the largest rally we've been to so far. I'm not a huge fan of the "pack 'em in" style of rallies but it was fun and the RV park has a huge pavilion so it did accommodate the large crowd. Saturday night was a real southern fish fry that was fabulous. Fish, shrimp, french fries and of course hush puppies. Plus all of the fixings. The organizers and sponsors do an amazing job. We're all signed up for the International Rally in Oregon next summer so that should be fun.

We went to the Ballon Fiesta this year, and hope to make it to that rally next fall. It was amazing to be right in the middle of the launch field during Mass Ascension. Quite a sight.

Enjoy your #38 and look for #62 in your travels.

Will do MarkFinATX! Hope to see you out there, too! We're headed up to Alumapalooza in May. Definitely look into the other gatherings.

Does anyone else out there have a problem with getting the Pendleton "dirty"? I realize it is probably all psychological. Part of me says "Use It!" The smaller percentage says "Don't ruin it! It's a special edition!' ARGH! It's driving me nuts! I know it's sturdy and scrubbable, etc.

Andrew,

A very clever mod, great use of space. Can the TV be rotated, even a little bit, when raised for viewing, or does the lift mechanism prevent that?

Go and get it dirty. We were out for 3 weeks straight last summer and had to store our two fishing kayaks in it when we went to our sonís wedding in Durham NC. Parked it right on the street outside the hotel. My husband joked that it will probably the one and only time he has to parallel part the trailer!
The trailer cleans easily. Just enjoy it!
We are getting the cushions in the dinette refilled as they seemed to collapse and become uncomfortable when sitting a while to watch tv. Wish the dinette table was a little smaller. Sure there are small things we are thinking about changing but we love the cabin feel and national park decor.
We donít regret our purchase of the Pendelton edition at all!

Rick...you mentioned the Pendleton, but have Tommy Bahama on your signature? Do you have both?

Just have the TB - actually, it's on order, will get it in early April. But asked because maybe sometime in the future, might consider this same TV modification for the TB - it appears that the wedge cushion configuration is the same, so it should work (well, you can have just about anything done for a price). Have already talked to Ultimate Airstream in Oregon about it. Their rep and I were curious as to whether or not the retractable TV was able to rotate at all when in the Up position. I'm guessing "No", but it was worth asking. In any event, he thought it was a brilliant modification, considering that the normal TV wall placement is in a somewhat awkward (and distant, for a 28" screen) position.
