The 4th annual Vintage Restoration Rally is coming right up! This is a serious seminar-style rally, taught by professionals, for anyone interested in hands on learning all of the ins and outs of restoring a vintage trailer, or just seeing how these trailers are put together. This rally is part classroom and part hands on and does not require you to bring your trailer.Topics anticipated are as follows:
- Complete overview of trailer restoration – with lots of photos to see
- Rivet and skin skills taught by aircraft experts
- Cabinet building skills
- Zolatone painting (this will be worth it alone)
- Electrical – basic & high tech wiring
- Axle replacement
- Door & window rebuilding/repair
- And more!
As in the past, this rally will feature Area 63 Productions and Uwe Salwender (UWE on the forums). Many of you know of the incredible Airstream restorations that he turns out from his studio. He is planning on giving a slide presentation on some of the trick stuff he’s done over the years. Also featured is Kip Eagan (Aerowood) – he is a master aircraft skin mechanic and has incredible knowledge of all things aluminum. Steve Bittner is back this year to do cabinet and Zolotone demos – he has many years’ experience in the cabinet making industry. New this year we will feature Lew Farber (Lewster), a master RV Tech who will be talking about solar installs and electrical wiring. You may be familier with some of these folks and know them to be experts in their field. We are very lucky to have assembled the best of the best to show you how to do things right.
So you want details…? OK – we hold this rally the second weekend in June (9-12) at Enchanted Trails RV Park and Trading Post (an old Route 66 trading post) in Albuquerque New Mexico.
Our rally fee is $50 per person or $85 for a couple, plus a screaming deal of $15 per night paid to Enchanted Trails (thank you Vicki!!) for the camp site. Please make your camping reservations directly with her. Below you will find the sign up sheet.
So what do you get for your rally fee? You get a great learning experience plus a catered meal on Saturday night (so you don’t have to worry about cooking after working hard all day), and a continental breakfast (so you won’t have to worry about cooking after staying up late on Sat night) Sunday morning. So don’t hesitate – we look forward to seeing you in Albuquerque!
