Last chance! Pre-order the new Airstream maintenance book today

Pre-orders are still accepted for Airstream Life’s new guide to Airstream maintenance, but hurry—the offer expires on July 15.

“My long-awaited Airstream maintenance book is almost ready!” says author and Airstream Life publisher Rich Luhr. “I’ve been working on it for years. It covers everything you need to know to keep your Airstream trailer in great running condition for decades.”

Maintaining your Airstream is not as difficult as you might think, and you’ll be equipped to perform every routine task by yourself—with no prior experience—using a few basic tools and the book as your guide. “No more trips to the service center for every little thing,” said Luhr. “It doesn’t matter if you don’t even own a screwdriver. There are many things you can do to keep your Airstream going strong, and fix problems when they occur.”

“I thought I had learned a lot about Airstreams after seven years of intense travel and lots of on-the-road repairs, but while I was writing this book my eyes really got opened,” Luhr wrote in his blog.

“I had long talks with Airstream personnel.  I read every guide I could find from every major supplier to Airstream, including Dexter, Alcoa, Atwood, Wineguard, Parallax, Hehr, Dometic, Marshall, Cavagna, Fantastic Vent, Zip-Dee, Corian, Forbo, and many others. I collected articles from decades of “Schu’s News” and read several other “white box” maintenance guides cover-to-cover.  I talked to dealers, polishers, repair shops, and restorers. And when I finally had a draft written, I put every word through intense review by experienced Airstream mechanics, retired factory staff, and knowledgeable Airstream owners.”

The new book will cover these topics (and much, much more):

  • How to find problems before they occur
  • Aluminum body repair
  • Leak prevention and repair
  • Plumbing
  • Running gear & A-frame, including wheels, tires, brakes, and bearings
  • Electrical and propane system
  • Gas Appliances
  • Interior and exterior cleaning and appearance

“Bottom line: this book is unique,” says Luhr. “No other book available contains so much Airstream-specific maintenance advice.”

Pre-order your copy NOW and save! The book will be available later this summer at $27.95; reserve yours before July 15 and pay only $20+ shipping… and all pre-ordered books will be autographed by the author!
