Spring Preparation 2024

Don’t delay in creating your punch-list for preparing your Airstream trailer for spring trailering. Procrastination can lead to overlooking important tasks that need attention before hitting the road. Make a checklist of items such as inspecting tires, checking brakes and lights, ensuring all appliances are working properly, and assessing the condition of the exterior. Don’t forget to restock necessary supplies like kitchen essentials, bedding, and safety equipment.

Early preparation allows you to address any issues in advance, reducing the risk of unexpected problems during your trip. It’s important to also consider cleaning and organizing the interior of your Airstream to create a comfortable living space. Checking for any water leaks or damage is crucial in order to avoid costly repairs down the line. By tackling these tasks ahead of time, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your Airstream is ready for the adventures that await in the upcoming spring season.

Not only do we all tend to forget some of the most important check list things going back to warmer temperatures inside the trailer, but we all have a few forgetful moments regarding the most important word…. safety!

Preparing both adults and children for potential road problems or malfunctions with the Airstream trailer is essential before hitting the campsite. Ensuring that all components are in working order, especially after long periods of inactivity, is crucial for a safe journey. It’s advisable to conduct a thorough evaluation of every moving part of the trailer before embarking on a trip.

The off-season period presents an opportunity to inspect and address any possible wear and tear that may affect the trailer’s performance. Taking time to review the Hitch system, plumbing, propane gas system, and appliances can prevent disruptions once you’re on the road. By being proactive about maintenance and preparation, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your Airstream trailer is ready for any adventure that comes your way.

Everything needs to be “maintained” and frequently evaluated, so the SPRING checkup is a great place to start and an important benchmark to monitor.

Above is a good reference list of double checks one should consider before taking off down the highway.
