My new Forums

So.... we made a tuff decision to sell our Airstream and buy an SOB. I know, I know..trust me I know...

The Brand is Open Range (337RLS) and without getting to deeply into why, I thought I would share one good laugh with you.

I am usually up pretty early and the Airforums is where I start my day with a good cup of coffee. Send a few pm's to folks I know are also up, share laughs, and get a kick start to the morning.

At the bottom of the forums is a list of folks on line when you are. Just wanted to show you a comparison of the Open Range forums this morning to the Airforums.

Looks like I will still be lurking around these "hallowed virtual halls" to have company in the a.m.

that's a brave move.. But, you can always buy some silver paint and put a few rivets here and there.
...and remember, you can check out, but you can never leave...

Good morning to you from the land of aluminum!

Well, at least that new thang is a kind of silver grey. If you come to the rally I have already bought several rolls of tin foil.

Another good thing is that you canit park me in the boonies at the vintage rally

Hopefully you & Skye will continue to join in the fun at the Christmas rally??
In my book, once a good Airstream friend, always a good Airstream friend.

Chuck will probably need to take that monster to Blanco Settlement anyway (pull-throughs with full hookups!) and then no one will know he's a traitor.. er... SOB owner.

To all our good friends that we have met while Streamin. You are the reason we love camping. Your responses on here make us chuckle and wish we were all together somewhere. And we have not sold ol Bud Lite (new name) just yet, although it will be actively attempted soon.
Right now we are prepping for a long road trip. (-;
Some observations on the change in trailers.
The extra room is awesome.
The slides demand careful positioning in the sites to avoid posts, trees, etc..
Gas mileage suffers GREATLY.
I definitely FEEL crosswinds and trucks..
Not sure that if you have never towed a box trailer, you fully realise just how aerodynamic the AS is. Major difference.
As long as big grey boxes can come to non rally rallys we will see you soon. See you all soon.

casa3805...I hear ya! We too made the jump, but to a MH and have to absolutely say this is the best forum hands down. I still lurk everyday, mostly because of the wonderful personalities on this forum that I haven't found elsewhere. I like to laugh and there is always someone here to make me get a chuckle or two everyday.
On all of our travels since we sold our AS, we still are on the lookout for any AS's while traveling! We still seek out Airstreamers in parks and always have to say hi!...It does get in your blood and no matter what we own, we started as 'streamers and in our hearts will always be streamers!
