    Thanks for the Discount Tire referral. I’ll be needing new 20 “ Michelin’s next year. 30 k on them about 1/2 worn. They are pricey

    Did we meet at Jackson Center last year ?

    Hi, I'm looking at 23 and 25' Airstreams and came across a post of yours from 2019 where you mentioned you started out towing a 25' Airstream with a F-150 with a 1039 lb payload. How was that experience? I have a 2012 F-150 Lariat with a 1142 lb payload so it sounds like its very similar to your prior tow vehicle. I'm thinking I need to look at a 23FB to be within my payload but my ideal Airstream would be the 25' FB. Just curious how your overloaded F-150 handled it.

    Hi did you send me this message today?

    I just wanted to let you know that my Jan. order slots are filling up fast, and my number is 904-537-2203 if you have any questions you want to discuss.-Matt

    Okay, so the Honey is in reference to your apholstery. The woodwork is Landmark laminate, which is good news because I have easy access to that. Are you sticking with the 34"?
  7. Apexbasher
    I did some figuring overnight and adding the 2" to make them 36" will add $50 to the price as this is a custumization that breaks up the batches that I build these in. I hope you understand.
  8. Apexbasher
    Keep me posted. I build these as orders come in. BTW, what is your model/year/finish?

    Hi there. Thanks for your interest. Yes, these are designed for a 34" mattress. Adding two inches isn't really an issue, if it's needed. I have not done a Classic yet, though there is a guy who found my posting on Facebook (Airstream Addicts group) that mentioned his Classic has powered bed platforms, for reading and such, and could I make it work with that. He never mentioned 36" width though. (Hmmm.) Anyway, If you plan on coming out to this area I can make you the one piece set that I think is a better unit (It's what I have in MY Airstream). Saves you $250 in shipping as well. Let me know what you want as far as finish and I'll see what can be done.

    Hi Gypsydad, truly appreciated your input in the past, hoping you wouldnt mind a question? Serial numbers...
    Looking at a 1978 Avion. Can you educate me on the meaning of these numbers/letters:
    60W93228S0682 ?
    Thank you
