Ta-Da, We Get By With a Little Help From Our Friends

Posted 01-09-2011 at 12:40 PM by LawChick (New love - And Her Name Is Excella)

We have Excella off the truck, leveled and have our beloved Ram TV back in our driveway! Excella is safely set up for the winter storm, although we'll be checking on her since we think the fan vent over the bed (of course!) will leak when the snow melts. The leaf cover is missing on that one. Right now, a big plastic tub is ready to catch the water.

The problem was that we needed shore power and didn't have enough from the low batteries or even our truck's battery to power the jack....

Our first full day as ASers was fun, interesting, and frustrating!

We got our Excella baby home without any trouble at all. Prayed all the way and thought positive thoughts, and the Force was with us, because although her rust covered brakes were squealing like pigs, she followed us home straight and sure.

We parked the rig in front...

Now, three months later...

I didn't have the heart to post again after my last entry in October, because our deal fell through on the 1992 Excella we had wanted. Although I was too discouraged to blog about it, we figured maybe we weren't meant to have it and through life experience, we've learned that often when something doesn't work out, it's for the best. Learned when doors close, it's best not to ram them open. We told each other that if it was meant to be, the Excella would still be available when we could buy it with...

Woo-hoo! We are brave and/or crazy. We don't even know if our sweet baby will roll or not. May pull the tongue right off the front or jerk it out with half the front frame dangling 5 miles from the dealership. The wheels may fall off - or flatten. I picture that ole lady dragging a car all to pieces on the Clint Eastwood movie, "Every Which Way But Loose". We know anything could happen and still...

We've "done gone" and reserved (and -YIKES- paid for!!!) four nights...

So We Bought It!

Ok, here goes, we bought the first Airstream we looked at, and the ONLY one we could find anywhere near us. I know, I can see you all cringing. But we didn't pay a lot, and figure if we have to spend that much again to make 'er perfect, we'll still have a good deal. And, to be honest, ok ~ I fell in love. It's not the first time I went nuts over love! Last time was 14 years ago and I haven't regretted a second of marrying Ray...well, except for the time he....nevermind.

This Excella...
