We will be working on the schedule this weekend and should have it finalized soon - we will be sending updates to all that have registered over the next few weeks

This is a serious learning event and we have lots in store for anyone who is even thinking about restoring an Airstream

I know I will be paying attention bringing up to date rusty skills as I have a "new" 1956 Flying Cloud that I've got to get going on - the plan is to do some Fantastic Fan installs as well as a live panel or two that will be replaced.

I publically thank Richard to giving me the money to restore my 58 Overlander which has given me the money to restore my 56 Flying Cloud - what a guy.....

So lets get to road going to the show!

Flying Cloud

Yup - its a new day for me - have wanted a Flying Cloud way back in 1998 when I started all this Airsteam stuff - and its a whale tail to boot!

Having said that - its been in storage for the past 15 years in the Texas Panhandle - so when we pulled it out, it has a major layer of dirt - so it looks pretty sad - the hillbilly Flying Cloud!

So back to the subject at hand - we are planning to use this trailer as part of demo - for those who have not attended before, we set up a big tent and we put an Airstream in the tent and do live demos - over the years we have done skin replacements, vent replacements, window work, cabinet work, axles and all sorts of things so you can not only see the theory, but see how these skills are actully done. We also have a classroom that we do seminars on electic, plumbing and lots other stuff that I can't think of right now

So we look forward to seeing everyone who this will be their first serious learning experience as well as those who are returning each year to update skills and learn more!

Dent-Roller

Kip's dent roller is great! Maybe we can get him to make another batch and bring some with him.

Thumbs up Ready to learn more stuff!

I would never have been able to complete the inside of my GT, if it weren't for the last 2 of these rallies I attended. The first one in a small tent. The wealth of information and hands-on workshops gave me the confidence to tackle projects I never would have tried, before! Can't wait, as I now need to work on the exterior. I will be there & Zollie, too!

Please, somebody, for those of us who can't make it this year, get some video footage and post it. Especially get some footage of Kip in action with the roller. This is a really cool tool but I don't think I'm using it to its fullest capacity.

Safari Rick - Yes we have space - this is a rally that we fit in pretty much everyone who wants to attend - we keep class sizes small, so the presenters just have to work harder the more attendees we have LOL!

Star Man - we have talked about streaming this all over, but have not found someone to help us with that technology + we are a little sensative to this because we have professional presenters who are compensated to do what they do - we have talked about taping and selling presentations, but then that adds a whole lot to what is already an incredible task putting this thing on....

So - grab a plane ticket, bring your tent and come on out!! We'll take good care of you!

Restoration Rally

Our shop is still busy with deadlines, but we're already working on the program for this most exciting event.
I might bring back the 58 Flying Cloud that everybody at the Rally has already worked on. It was the subject of our first Rallies skin replacement class. Now it has partial plumbing, flooring, a partial interior, and hopefully I can get her to a level of comfort that allows me to stay in her.
I any event, I look forward to seeing you all.
