    Hi! I couldn't get your message because of a popup blocker! We live out near the corner of 43rd and Oslo and keep our trailer at a storage facility out on 60. I suspect you might live near 60 on a street between 20th and 27th. I have seen a stream somewhere near there.

    Sorry to hear of your tire woes.. It is probably too late.. but, I contacted the tire manufacturer.. my tires were defective and they paid most of the repair, AFTER they agreed the tires were bad .. all 6.

    Those wires connect to a lot of places in your trailer. I would rather the Mother Ship repair... but, since that is not likely feasible, then your friendly local AS dealer would be where I would seek help.


    Peace, Channing
    Hope you get things worked out pretty quick.. still some summer left!

    Yikes, well what are you going to call that one? "remember when I went to get milk at Publix? Ugh. Sorry to hear about your hitch bump. I did what I can to my "mark" with suction cups, hot glue pullers and prayer! It looks as if I will be heading to Ohio though. Yes, my previous owner left some scratches and a bumper that is well, different. I can only say it is mine. I keep upgrading things on it and would probably not change coaches to start anew. Things are just so expensive. The Ohio trip will be a lot for sure. Is there anything else that is good to have them do while visiting the mothership that you might recommend?

    Hey there!

    Hope all is well with you. We just returned from a 1600 mile trip. I have to share that I backed my AS into a board in the storage facility that was placed on top of a shelf (it is shared) and dented in the side corner! Ugh. looked awful. I suction cupped out what I could. So, now I will be going to Ohio but have to wait until March '14. I should also consider some corrosion work like you did. I am not sure what they could do for me though. My poor thing is starting to look rough especially with that crater dent!. A friend told me to make it a smiley face (the crease has a mouth shape) and put have a nice day in marker! Geez.

    Great. I would like to someday go to the AS factory. We will see. The belt line rail and insert really made my AS look better. I started the process of washing polishing and waxing as per your advice. I am finding some dents that I did not know where even there. Nothing like hail dents but just a random dent here and there that I assume the dirty exterior kept from "showing through". I am sure this is the first cleaning this baby has had since new or at least in a very long time.

    Thanks. Yes, since the posting in March I completed the work myself. I spoke with Airstream who described the work to me. Their first suggestion was to lightly sand areas and utilized the Boeing spray then seal it with some acrylic spray paint. I had so much heavy corrosion that I had to be more aggressive. I used a wheel sander and got the corrosion off using the boeing spray in three applications and going over and over the area. Then I used a fusion clear spray paint in three coats followed by three coats of a rustoleum sealer primer. Then I covered the mid section with the aluminum trim and insert. It looks great. I then sealed the top with acryl-r seam sealant. That made it less attractive but at least it is sealed at the top of the trim. It looks like a silver caulk (yuck) but hey, it serves a purpose and it not noticeable from a distance.

    Greetings Sherrylynne.

    I am somewhat new to the forum and to Airstreaming. I recently bought a 2006 Safari that was stored in the Palm Beach area and has the corrosion equal or worse to the pics you posted - all along the beltline of the curb side and especially the front. I am trying to find a way to sand and seal. Have you found anything?

    Hi, sherrylynne

    My son lives in Melbourne Beach. I did manage to find a temporary place for it here in Miami. But once the warehouse gets sold, I will have to move it out. So if you can ask your friend for 'near future', I would appreciated it.

    I found you in the forum, I am also in Florida (Miami). I have a '69 Safari 23 feet, and I need to move it from its current stored location. I'd like to move it up somewhere in the Vero/Merritt/Melbourne/Indialantic area. I was hoping you could advise me if you know of a place where I can store it. Also, I'm considering a place where I can keep the Airstream (on someone's property) so I can spend a night or two in it (paying rent of course) while I drive up from Miami to visit my son. Of course, this is a temporary situation until I can make a final move up north (to Melbourne or Indialantic) and then be able to use the trailer as it was meant to be used. Please contact me if you have info that could help. I am also considering selling it due to financial and logistic issues that are making it very challenging for me to keep it. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.
