Sounds great Steve - just let me know.

Just as an FYI - we have a couple of venders that will be available at this rally - and you are welcome to come and talk to them or use their services - even if you don't sign up for the rally. We have lots of room to work on trailers

One is Steve (above aka Soldiermedic) - he does a pretty cool leak detection service so this is the opportunity to find your leaks and learn how to fix them.

The other is a someone who does very nice solar installations.

We are very lucky to have some incredible expertise at this rally - the folks who are doing the presentations are experts in their fields - professional Airstream restoration, Aircraft sheet metal mechanic, cabinet makers etc

So again this is a great opportunity to learn from the Pros - wheather you are doing a complete restoration and rebuild on your 1936 Airstream, or just want to do intall a fan on your 2009 Airstream there will be something for everyone.

Have a great rally.

Tim - we currently have 39 units signed up - we have decided to expand the rally - should be interesting putting it all together.

Bill - sorry we don't sell the manuel - its a major ton of work putting this type of rally on and publishing the manuel is more than we are up for.

Ken,

Who is the forums member giving the seminar on Zolatone painting? I met them at the TX rally, but cannot remember their name. I have a few questions.

Our coach is undergoing frame work (and thus unavailable), but this may be worth a trip. Is a tinfoil hat aluminum enough to attend?

Anthony/Tamara - been out of town, just getting back... Yes! glad to hear you are joining us - if you could PM your e-mail address, you will be set to go - we will be in touch soon.

Steve - his name is Steve Bittner and lives in Az - PM me if you need more info - the Zolatone demo will be one of the highlights of the weekend.

Hamp - Only if its an alumuinum hat -) actually we have several all ready signed up without trailers.

Everyone who signed up will be hearing from us soon - to this point we have been gathering names - now its time to organize the details...

We are off and running! I sent our first newsletter so if for any reason you did not get it, it means I don't have you on my list.

We plan to work on our trailers, watch others work on their trailers and hopefully pick up the experience of others who have – been there done that – perhaps in the hope that maybe we can steer you away some of the mistakes all of us have made – or at least tell you the stories of what went right and what went wrong. Some of the presentations will be inside seminar style, others will be outside and some will even be hands on.

So, we look forward to all those attending - will have a great time - weather is expected to be great - maybe a little breezy....

Ken J

My cousin lives in ABQ and I can likely crash at his place. I will look into cost for air and hotel. Need to get as cheap as a flight as possible to save costs.

Hi all- I'll be attending the rally, and was wondering if anyone would want the bath-tub from my '72 OL if I brought it? It would be free, but if no attendees express any interest here I probably won't bring it- I also will be bringing many of the plastic storage bins, which take up a lot of space because they don't nest very well. Please PM me if you want the tub, and then I'll do my best to fit it in back of the Burb. -tim

I am afraid I will have to miss this year due to family illness. Keep me in mind for one of those manuals that your talking about.

Ken: Hope there's room for one more. We pull a '75 Sovereign on which I've done a lot of updating since 2001. I'm in the process of rebuilding the galley counter. I started pulling out the old one last week.
