For years, I had been dreaming of an Airstream trailer, when I saw an ad in the paper for an old one, one day. I went to see it, but before I arrived at the place, I saw one on the other side of the street. No! it wasn't not the place. The one for sale - not too far away - was in a very bad condition.
On my way back, I stopped where I had seen the first one, and politely ask if it was possible to visit the trailer, since I had never seen one from the inside before.
It happened that the trailer belonged to a man that had died a couple weeks before. I apologized and I was going to leave when the lady said that she wanted to put it for sale in the paper the following week.
The day after, it was mine. It was in 1995, I believe. The trailer was a LandYacht Safari tandem. A very nice trailer. I bought a 33-foot Argosy 1987 or 1988, a couple years later (in West Virginia). About 10 years ago, I bought a 6-metre Minuet 1977 (in Indiana).
I have had people looking at it who have also asked if it is for sale. Answer: NOT FOR SALE... not until I have found something better... I am still looking for...
In fact, my daughter want me to put it on my will for her to have it when I die. She is also born in 1977. I am only 60. I am trying to keep it in good shape until it happens...
I am probably the owner of the only one 6-metre Minuet in the province of Québec.
I am glad I stopped that day... in 1995... to look at an Airstream...
(Note: I am therefore also responsible for bringing a couple of Airstream from the USA to Canada.)
