Well, it's near 100 here today, and I'd love to go back to the Coast again!..have you ever been to Bodega Bay/Doran Beach?..we spent the day w/our son and his family in July..just a county park campground, I think, right near the beach/bay of Bodega..the next few weeks, I'm homebound lots of other stuff on our plates, but maybe in the future, we could hook up!..

I'm guessing that the beach spots will be full. So it'll be in the desert wilderness.

Are you going to the NorCal rally?

It's Thursday and I love my Airstream.

Hi, It's Thursday and I love my Airstream because: Well, with twenty five pages of Airstream love with, 2air and the rest of your reasons, I find it very hard to find any reasons not already mentioned. So here is why I love my Airstream, I love my Airstream because it's paid for. My wife and I worked very hard for many years to prepare for our retirement. [Blue collar workers] Hopeing to retire Soon, but not yet. Maybe next year. We ordered our dream trailer and paid for it before it was even built. Thank You George Sutton.

Bob

hi folks,

more great reasons today 2 appreciate our airstreams....

bob.... PAID FOR is a great reason...and bears repeating

PAID FOR!

that a topic for a whole 'nother thread...'is it paid for?'

who wants this one..it could be a top 100 someday!

nice rhyme'n empresley....i vote 4 a new pet...
so many need a good home,
and a poet.

camperski...
if you buy 3 trailers in 3 days,
is that a hat trick
or just crazy!

clancy boy...
7 WEEKS away from family, home and the trailer...ouch.
hope you have a telephone and can get online...
we will be here...

gezz you lucky rascals in cali have it made....desert or beach....i want some!

streamer23, thanks for noticing how nicely this thread chugs along...
one day a week...
it is a nice place for a few great ideas...
and they just keep coming
and the thread keeps going....

speaking of going....
has anyone made contact with chaplain kent?
it would be great to know if this colon...now a semi colon,
is staying together....

i hope he is doing well and has a high speed connection at the hospital...
sure, that is a double meaning thing...
i think.

cheers
2air'

Hi Bob,

So you love your Airstream because it's paid for..we're retired too..got our Safari from the in-laws, verrry fortunate that way..BUT, over the last 20 years, we've done a lot of repairing, remodeling, restoring and replacing, to the tune of about $10,000..or more, I gave up counting the ways we fixed it up!..and we'll never be done..always a new project or challenge!..

It is Thursday.... Goodie!

Another Thursday and another great day to be happy about our little Airstream! We our Tardis (aka Bambi)!

We just got back a couple of days ago from the Hat Creek Rally. Beautiful stream! Very relaxing time.

Going to Yosemite next, but not for a couple of weeks. Time to unpack and repack the trailer!

Hope all of you have a great week! Here is a pic from Hat Creek (near Lassen)!

NO, these aren't Vintage Trailer Supply, although they are very good and recommended. Especially the service. Due to time constraints (and Shari's [INSIDEOUT] recommendation) I got this from TTC&A.

I like their tensioning ropes--the springs are great--and the poles have a positive locking setscrew. I have to say I like their poles at lot better than Vintage's, just due to the set screw--everything else about the poles seems th same.

I asked them to leave a valence gap (about a foot) next to the trailer edge of the awning so that the valence didn't constantly flap against the skin and to make the extension 9' instead of 8'. Special orders don't upset them and the changes were no cost.

When it's down, everything fits nicely in the included heavy duty vinyl duffle about 5-1/2' long. I think the whole thing with shipping was about $360.

I agree Zep, I like the quality of yours. Funny, I have added springs to the Vintage Airstream awning I got. The quality of Vintage is very good and the color selection is also good. Didn't mean to imply they were the same - just offering a location for an awning that fits the rail. Sometimes they are tough to find.

Your's look great.

Mike
