If you are asking about the process at UA, Ultimate Airstream partners with Airstream Adventures Northwest (Dealership) who I believe have the driver pool that pick up your Airstream and drive it there for you.

They gave me a day, time, contact number for the driver. Boom. Done. They were flexible with me as well after requesting a different day to pick up.

Best,

NF

What about USHIP, any idea howthat actually works? Any way to know what kind of equipment the hauler uses?

Last I used Uship, it is like an auction site. You put in details about the trailer, trip, and time-frame. Carriers see the job and then bid on the work. If you want the carrier to get the trailer at your house, then just put it in the details. The first bidders are usually the highest. It is not uncommon for somebody looking for deadhead work to price the lowest. The more flexibility in your time-frame, the more it helps with pricing for you.

Toward equipment, it will range based on the carrier. Will not surprise me if the most appealing bid is from a hotshot in a pickup going back home.

The carrier I selected was awesome with excellent communications and even sent a photo of the RV when it arrived at Jackson Center. Naturally, every carrier is different and I happened to get a good one.

Another Airstream shop you should consider for your project is P & S Trailer Service in Helena, OH. This is a 3 generation family company that has done work for me. Their shop did a total restoration on Miranda Lambert's vintage AS after it was wrecked following a hitch separation. They are located about 50 mil north of the Airstream factory. They do excellent work and their price is reasonable. Check out their website at pandstrailerservice.com and call Kevin to discuss your plans.

Hey, thanks for the tip. I'll check them out. We actually have a guy in our club who has grown his own, solo business and this may be within his skill set. I need to check with him as well.

I checked with P&S and they were less than enthusiastic about such a project, also indicating that they are booked more than a year out. It seems that I am getting a sign to just leave my Airstream as is.

We just received our 1974 Ambassador back from Capital City Customs.

Very thoughtful, experienced restoration services here. We surrendered ours to them when we faced a rotted rear bath. Having no off-street space to work on the trailer, we first visited with Out-of-Doors Mart, who sent us to Dan and Lisa at Capital City.

Scope of work included: rear end frame and outrigger repairs; rear subfloor replacement; rear bathroom construction (demolish curb closet, fabricate stainless shower, sink, toilet re-installation); new plumbing to PEX / Watts connectors; new Atwood WH installation; new Progressing Dynamics power center installation; kitchen countertop refurb to Corian; Suburban cooktop installation; new stainless sink; Cyclo polish; underbelly refurb (banana wraps on English wheel, black finishes); all windows removed and resealed; compartment doors and seals refurbished; installed Maxx retractable fans fore / aft; installed Camco cyclone vents at all locations; Dometic AC cover clean-up; rooftop coated / sealed in white.

Their work looks excellent. Really like the diversity on their interiors stylings. I see your (just posted) exterior pictures on your other thread.

Is that your Ambassador they previewed on their website.

Just what we did....AS made the trailer, we made the 'improvements'.

BTW...It still looks entirely as delivered.

Thank you, we’re very pleased with the work they did. I don’t believe their site has been updated. Ours is a 74 Ambassador, and they’ve definitely completed other International projects before. Will have to go look and see!
