    Yes I'd be up for a road trip. We got into competive shooting a couple of years ago and the premier range in the country is a place called K&M Shooting center in Crestview Florida.
    We are pulling out for a trip and a major competition over the weekend.
    That is a big reason I went with an Airstream due to how nice they travel.
    I also have projects in PCB Florida and a good hook in a couple in Elgin.

    Thanks for the in its I will have to look at the calendar and see if I can make it.

    We met two brothers from Georgia...twins...retired FBI--they were interesting to talk to. There are some really interesting people who will end up in the waiting room with you. Take the factory tour...it was fun. And anything you may want to purchase from AS...is in that AS shop.
    Hope you have a good time/trip.

    Welllll....I had a check list of things that needed to be fixed at the AS factory. Let me just say...when they "fix" those things...YOU check them our before you leave. Example : the outside shower faucet was replaced by AS. I did not check it. When we tried to use it in the Florida Keys, it leaked like crazy. It needs a new O-ring...and one that seems impossible to find. Now, if AS replaced that part, one would think they would check to see if it leaked. They did not--and now it is my problem in Florida. There wer other issues too.

    There is basically nothing around the factory...except a lot of very nice people...one kinda cool hardware store and a great kinda fancy restuarant that was very good. AS does have wi-fi...so bring some stuff to do.

    Oh...just found this post. Glad you had a good trip...sorry you backed into a board. I managed to back my truck with the huge hitch into the side of our AS...somehow I got to the point of not worrying about those bumps, bruises, scrapes...there are just too many of them and, the good part is, I can always say things like, "Remember when I scraped along those spruce trees in northern Arizona?

    I finally got my son to wash/wax the AS...I did this by telling him he would inherit the AS someday--funny how that worked!

    Hope your day goes well!

    Well...after years of trying to get the corrosion repaired locally, I drove from Vero Beach, FL up to the AS factory in Ohio. They were really nice, had us in and out in two days...repaired the corrosion (yes, I paid for the labor and for some of the parts...AS did comp a few items...very nice of them). It was worth it.

    The guys at the AS factory told me to wash frequently, wax every 6 months. Hopefully that will stop any further corrosion. Do you live in Palm Beach?

    Hello! Well, I live 60 miles north or Palm Beach and believe it or not, I drove my Airstream to Ohio to the factory and they repaired the damage. I paid the labor on it. Yes, I know this is probably NOT the anwer you want to hear...but I felt it was the right thing to do. EVERYBODY at Airstream was VERY nice and competent, and I am glad I did it. It was 1100 miles, though--one way.--Just got back a week ago....
