Happy Spring - Not!

Normally, we'd still be in Texas this time of year, enjoying some of the early migrating birds, and planning our trip back to Vermont.  This year we stayed home - and yesterday's late snowstorm of a foot or more (and still coming) did not give us a "Hey, it's the first day of Spring!" feeling when we awoke this morning.  The Airstream may not be dreaming of being in warmer climes - but we are.

Local Airstream Company Expands

The Plattsburgh Press-Repulican had a nice article about the continuing expansion of an Airstream sales/renovation company just across the lake. 
PLATTSBURGH — New models of an American icon are now available from a local business that has doubled in size within the last year. 
Nomad Airstream President and Sales Manager Steven Clement said they are now an authorized Airstream dealer with exclusive rights to the New York and Vermont sales territory.
“We’re getting calls from all over,” he said.
Market holds promise
He and CEO Guillaume Langevin see great potential for the market, particularly the Burlington area. Clement said it is difficult to find Airstream trailers in Canada, so they even expect to have customers from the Montreal market.
“We know customers will be coming down,” he said.
The company has already received some new 2013 inventory.
The International Signature and Serenity series includes models from 19 feet to 30 feet. The Classic Limited line has model lengths of 27 feet, 30 feet and 31 feet, and is the flagship of the Aurstream line.
The Airstream Eddie Bauer edition is available in 26-foot and-28 foot lengths. It features a wide rear hatch to accommodate outdoor gear such as a kayak or bicycles. 
“It really fits in with the Adirondacks,” Clement said.  Read the whole article.
