Bringing home a new baby

Took a 4 night trip to the Smokies last weekend. Great weather and a good time. However, we made the mistake of stopping by an AS dealer since we had some time to kill. BIG MISTAKE. Fell in love with a 2007 27' FB Classic Limited. After negotiating for a week on it and a 2006 28' Classic (at a different dealer), we made a deal on the 28'; picking it up next Friday. We had the Safari 25' for 7 1/2 months, traveled 3,600 miles and spent 18 nights in it but the 3 extra feet makes a huge difference and we are excited, again!!

Take my advice, stay away from the dealer's lot. Aluminitas kicks into high gear as soon as you step out of your car.

So I see ya got that classic, now you have to get a vintage model Will be great to see the new trailer and I'm sure with all your mods added. Now you have room for the Grankids.

I know the feeling. We had/have a 2006 25'FB. Memsab felt a little constrained/claustrophobic in it. Went to Airstream of Arkansas to 'look' at a 2007 30'Classic limited. She LOVES it. needless to say........
It will be ours soon. Any one wanting a previously loved '06 Airstream of Arkansas. We'll be swapping soon!

Not feeling so alone...

Thanx - I always thought it was just me!

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
