Have we any connection to eBay?
Yes, we have sold Airstream manuals for many years on eBay under the eBay id of Vox231.
We continue to sell there, however, if you purchase from us on ecrater we will give you a lower shipping price. We can do this on ecrater as we do not have to pay the very high fees that we do on eBay.
We continue to accept payment by Paypal as well as money orders.
No cash payments please.
Are these just poor quality photocopies?
Each manual or digital pdf file has been scanned at high resolution from clean, clear origianls. Then each and every page is run through Photoshop to clear up the image and enhance the photographs. Then the resulting pages are turned into acrobat pdf files for high quality laser printing. The resulting pages are as close to the original in quality as we can make them.
In most cases the service manuals had covers of blue card stock. We purposely print the covers on grey card stock so that it is clear that they are not originals but rather high quality reprints. Binding is is done with a plastic cerlox comb just as was the original. We use a black comb rather than the original blue binding comb.
Are the manuals on cd copy protected?
While we make no claim as to ownership of the copyright of the material in these manuals we do value the hard work that went into making them.
All manuals on cd have various levels of copy protection including: locks on the files to prevent editing or extraction; passwords for opening; unique file naming to match the buyer; watermarking both digital and printed; as well as identifiers hidden within pictures and text. None of the latter interfer in any way with the easy use of the manual
Can manuals on cd be printed?
High resolution printing of parts, pages or the whole manual is allowed. Printed pages are watermarked as mentioned above. If printing a whole manual at once the buyer will need a high end printer with lots of memory, otherwise printing will be very slow. This is due to the very large file size. Please ask if you have a question about this.
Printing is easier if the pdf file is moved onto your hard disk rather than printing directly from the cd.
