The agreement also provides owners of earlier Airstream models the ability to purchase a membership at an Airstream negotiated rate. Legacy Airstream owners will be notified within the week of this special, limited time offer.
The program, that began mid-September, amplifies Airstream’s premium level of customer service, said Justin Humphreys, Airstream's vice president of sales.
Coach-Net’s 24/7 availability expands Airstream’s service and provides factory-trained reps to assist Airstream owners wherever they travel throughout the United States and Canada.

“Airstream is a great example of a partner who mirrors our commitment to service and quality,” said Mat Krzysiak, CEO of NMC. “As Coach-Net approaches its 25th year serving the RV industry, we remain focused on delivering a valuable service to our partners and peace of mind to their customers.”

|Park here game day for only $499.|
A space in a dental lot on Russell Ave., just two-tenths away from the stadium can be yours for $1,199. That sounds way too expensive, but the good news is that's for four days, and there are restrooms on the premises. So, heck, if you stay the full four days that's only $12.50 an hour -- not so bad.
EZ Park of Indianapolis will rent you spot right across the street from the stadium for a mere $499. But that's only for the day of the game, and you must vacate within four hours after the game's final buzzer. Oh, yes, there are porta-potties are on site, so no need to fill up your own John due to mucho beer drinking.
If you don't mind a little walk, Newport Parking on North Alabama St., eight-tenths of a mile away from the stadium has a space for you for only $55. What a deal!

The living area has room for a small coffee table with booth-type seating and underseat storage that can be converted to a queen-size bed, with an another permanent bed in the forward section above the cockpit. At its rear, the Prius RV features a shower/bathroom stall (we don't know how it could fit, but that's what the PR folks say). The vehicle debuted at the Tokyo Auto Show.
There's no word yet on price or when it might go on the market. But for anyone looking for a basic camper that gets great gas mileage, perhaps this will fit the bill.

After creditors forced the shutdown and sale of assets of Carriage RV, auctioneering firm, Myron Bowling Auctioneers, scheduled a February 9 selloff. In a "re-mark your calendar" move, the auction house says they've moved the date out to February 21.
The sale of everything from parts, completed rigs, equipment, and intellectual property rights will take place in Millersburg, Indiana before a live crowd, but bidders can also ring in their bids via the Internet. A public inspection will allow hands-on inspections on February 20th. The auction company has yet to publish a catalog of items for sale, but says it typically has one up on the web five days prior to the sale.
Carriage, who manufactured brands Cameo, Royals, Resort Vehicles, Domani, Carri-Lite, Cabo, and the Carriage line was quite popular among RVers. What with the intellectual property rights and "intangible assets", which includes the company name and brand names, phone numbers and Internet website up for sale, there is the potential that a successful bidder could resurrect the line from the death of financial insolvency and make Carriage live again.
Potential bidders, both at the site itself and those who would visit via the web, should be aware of the auctioneer's sales criteria. Cash, company check, or wire transfer are the only acceptable payments--credit cards will not be accepted. Online bidders will be required to have made a deposit prior to the auction day of at least 25% of their anticipated bid amounts. The auction company charges a buyer's premium.For more details, visit the website.
