It’s hard to believe how quickly Airstream replacement parts have increase in cost over the last three years. There was a time when many Vintage repairs were a phone call away from any dealer, but today the work “backorder” seems to be the front runner word that’s slowing down the repair process and replacement inventory.
Since 1931 Airstream has turned victory on the street to passion on the street.
On the county roads, Airstream is on the list of things to aim for in life.
On any given day it is extremely important to have the talent of the company workforce there and always ready for unexpected situations or emergencies. Each worker has his or her experiences that contribute to a well-balanced business even when things are not just right.
Safety standards should be enforced daily and tools plus supplies always available for each worker. As always, experienced help and back-up knowledge is a must when establishing first aid procedures and correct protocol.
For the past 88 years the term Airstream has evolved into an iconic symbol of America, family and forward outdoor thinking.
Little did one know (back then) that a movement would erupt for committed followers of the outdoor roadmap.
Breath-taking experiences on the smallest path of life gives us all a reason to continue each personal journey and look for exciting detours to show interesting facets of a changing world.
Often, we substitute clear thinking for a quick fix or a shortcut to save a little time and money.
Often, we instinctively know that we are not doing the right and safest procedure when preparing an Airstream trailer for a road trip.
Even worse, we, many times, just skip completely an important safety piece of equipment because we feel “nothing bad will happen to me”.
Knowing that the trailer travel world is hot as a pistol, I am anxiously awaiting the news that will help the adventurer go even deeper into the forests.
With the advent and now the perfection of Wi-Fi and solar and more accurate gadgets to come, the family including “grandma” will easily be capable of dramatic exploration and independence in the wild.
Little did I know that the creation of a “blog” was going to become one of the strengths and necessary components of one’s website.
I rapidly found each blog became a link, a connection that glued individuals together in order to explore answers to similar themes. To explore each blog writer or blog reader could benefit from a similar problem or situation. That are the blogs most powerful objective.
Recently I got to thinking that there is something definitely wrong with the Airstream travel world of yester year. For some odd reason, my telephone rarely stops ringing from folks calling from those states East of the Mississippi river.
Far too many calls were made by Airstream lovers who were frustrated by the fact that they couldn’t locate trailers (vintage) to buy!
It’s amazing to me as to how many folks call me personally and ask for answers to questions, scenarios estimated value etc.…… with nothing more than “yeah, can you tell me the weight of a 1973 Overland Airstream trailer if it was fully gutted.
People call me from all over the world with these types of questions…. I always suggest doing a little home work on the model, year, photos and a lot of details from the internet before wasting time.
Whether we are checking for propane leaks or burned out bearings, there’s only one way to repair a dated Airstream travel trailer….
The repair must be done with confidence, experience and checked numerous times since the right way is no different from any improvement….it must be and it must have a clear objective regarding the solution to sometimes very complicated choices.
