Thanks for the invite

Hello everyone,

My wife and I have been air streaming for 3 years. Just casual weekends and such preparing for retirement. 2014 27' International FBQ. We live in Northwest Wisconsin, so Airstreams are rare, and repair shops are even more scarce! We will be looking on this site a lot for tips and suggestions.

Thanks!

One of the best things that you can do is join the local unit of Airstream Club International. Most Units (there is a Wisconsin Unit) have a group of very knowledgeable individuals that are more than willing to help you with problems, give tips (some good, some not so good) and offer suggestions. You will meet some very interesting people, make a lot of new friends, and do a lot of fun things. We have been members for over 20 years, have made salot of great friends, seen a lot of things that we never would have known about, and learned a tremendous amount on how to maintain and repair the verious Airstreams we have owned over the years. Hopefully we will meet up, as Wisconsin is in the same Region as we are in.

I second the suggestion to join the Wisconsin-UP Unit of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI)/Airstream Club International (ACI). The Wisconsin-UP Unit is quite active with a with members owning Airstreams from just about every era. I joined this Unit in the mid-1990s when I purchased my 1964 Airstream Overlander Land Yacht International, and maintain my membership there even though I have moved to far Southern Illinois in retirement as the Unit has offered me so much over the years.

Enjoy your Airstream and the many fine parks in Wisconsin. I might suggest one of my favorites if you get down to the Southwest corner -- Rustic Barn RV Park and Campground in Kieler, Wisconsin.

Kevin

Greetings from Colorado, formally from Minnesota. I love your part of the country, and your part of Wisconsin. We moved to Colorado for retirement and since our sons live here. We have enjoyed it, but I do miss the great lakes area. But with an Airstream, you can plan to travel wherever your heart desires.

Travel safe,

David

Welcome!

We are members of the Wisconsin - UP Club and one of our members is the owner of Midwest Airstream Service. Contact Steve Prouty if you need anything. Just saw him at our club rally in Sturgeon Bay. Hes a great guy!
