Great Site !!!

Hey there all.
Thanks for having a great site. I have been sneaking around the site for a little while, but have decided to formally make my presence known. You have so much info available and it's pretty easy to find too. If you can stand to have an Avion 34v owner lurking around then I will be happy to participate.
Something that did make me feel great. A few weeks ago while we were coming home from a camping trip we were driving through Pelzer,SC and noticed a pickup truck heading toward us with lights flashing and occupants waving out the windows, well we did the same and when we got close and passed each other we all had big grins on our faces. Thanks for the happiness. Did you also realize that when you drive down the road with a big silver camper and wave to your fellow (supposed) campers in the box style camper that frequently it seems they can't see you ? Crazy huh ?

Anyway thanks again for a great site/forum.

The SOB owners keep wanting to believe that Airstreamers are snooty. It's reverse snobbery.

I always believe that there are two kinds or RV'ers - Airstream owners and FUTURE Airstream owners.

Avions are beautiful too!

Happy Camping, Tin Lizzie

Hi Chris, and welcome!

While everyone contributes to the collective knowledge, it is the top-notch Moderators who are responsible for the amazing site you used to lurk around in.

Avion or not, your participation is most welcome.

Just my view, but I would say you are very welcome here - all the Avions (except the newest ones) are built exactly the same as Airstreams - the only thing different is the name....

We came real close to buying a late 80s Avion ... but the owner wanted waaaay too much for it. A year later it was still sitting there.

Not to start a range war ... but our impression of the Avion was that it felt more solid than the late 80s Airstreams we had looked at. That trailer was very well built ... and no exterior peeling!

Welcome, Chris, to the forum-participating, not lurking! Avions ARE beautiful. Like Porky (post above). we too almost bought an 80's 34' Avion before we found our Airstream, but the owner wouldn't budge on a rather rarified price! The Avion was solid, beautifully finished, and would have made any owner proud. Glad you found our community ~G
