Airstream Adventures Northwest

Test Tow Drive Event Signup

Salem International Rally

June 25th, 27th, 28th, and 29th

9:00am – 3:30pm

Even experienced Airstreamers can probably remember feeling a bit intimidated the first time they hitched up, and with more than 50 percent of new Airstream owners reporting that they are completely new to any sort of towing, it's often one of the largest roadblocks. A lot of consideration goes into model, length, price and tow vehicle, but the very prospect of towing can be the daunting for new owners.

That's the driving idea behind the 30-minute Test Tows that will be offered at the Salem International Rally, courtesy of Airstream Adventures Northwest (AANW), our rally partner and sponsor. If you help navigate rather than tow, or if you're simply looking for a refresher course, you can sign up now for this unique rally event! The Test Tows will include:

  • Tow vehicle and trailer courtesy of the dealership
  • A safety walk around to ensure proper set-up and connectivity (10 minutes)
  • YOU will be in the driver's seat with one of their Expert Drivers in the passenger seat to ensure you have the best towing experience possible (10 minutes)
  • If time allows, a back-up tutorial (10 minutes)

A Technician will be on site to assist with any questions following your towing course.

Airstream Adventures Northwest will have two Airstreams,
tow vehicles, and Expert Drivers on hand

A total of 22 spots are available each of the four days indicated

Additionally, you can come test your hitching and back-in skills with the AANW Hitch-Up, Back-In Time Trial Contest! The contest will take place on the 26th and 29th with a prize for the participant with the winning time!
