It was a present from someone who really loves me.

Legal Counsel has advised me not to discuss this information.

If you have to ask, then you wouldn't understand. (Old Harley tactic) Fave

It's a long story and I'm not sure you are up for it.

If you're worried about my spending, please feel free to donate to the CAUSE!



On another note:
How many more days till the 15th of November?

Best one I heard was. My wife bought it and I've learned never to ask what she pays for things.

First of all, congratulations to Pharm on Pick It Up Day! Exciting stuff. I owe him a thank you as I have followed his well thought-out and detailed preparation closely as I prepare for my first lengthy trek.

This might be completely off-topic but I'll ask anyway. Earlier in this thread it was mentioned that there are parks that don't allow sob's older than 10 years. Do they exempt Airstreams? Mine is a '90 but I suppose I could say it's a 2005 Commemorative Model. Not that I'm real excited about staying at parks with their noses in the air.

I was thinking about what my response would be if I get asked "What did it cost?". I think I will just answer truthfully - "It cost me my Porsche".

Meet the folks at dealer at 10am tomorrow!!

Not sure about the campground restrictions question to be honest - I do recall that being mentioned

Seems like a 90's AS would not be an eye sore so perhaps it would qualify? I presume their rationale is to weed out or discriminate on that basis? It's an interesting thing when you think about it....

I'm glad my posts have been helpful - many helpful folks here on the forum

I work tonight till 10pm so yeah - that sucks - doing my moonlighting thing - how do you think I pay for this overpriced wonder ship

That's actually the way I would answer it. How much does it cost? About 60 hours a week, unpaid overtime, missed vacations, and no eating out for a year. Not to mention 4 (or more) years of studying hard in college and maintaining a solid work ethic my whole life.


As for the question about age. There are some other threads about it on the forums. Yes, many parks have an age limit on RVs due to someone showing up in a beatup old motorhome belching smoke and detracting from the otherwise nice group of maintained trailers.

Some parks stick by their age limits strictly, and some will bend if you explain what you have. Since Airstreams don't change much year by year (well, to the uninitiated - I'm almost to the point I can name a year and even a model number by now - at least for old ones) some guys have lied, or said their vintage rigs are only a couple years old. Some parks once they see a vintage will be thrilled to bend the rules as AS are a great attraction to the park.

I'm going to assume that there are no age limits on any Airstream only park.

Congrats on getting your trailer tomorrow. We wish you the best. You're one eager dude for having over 1,000 posts and no trailer yet. I hope it's everything you've been looking forward to.

Rob.

Though it wouldn't surprise me if someday there is a "vintage only" Airstream park!

When I get my mind on something I am quite eager

Helped me survive some absolutely grueling years of pharmacy school and brick mason labor in Alabama summers to pay my bills

All the best we can offer, we do, for your "first day".. Not nearly as exciting as sharing with your family, but darn close...

May God's blessings embrace, surround and completely overshadow and protect you beneath His wings..

Peace and blessings,
Deacon Channing

Everything Rob said above. I've been to parks with age limits (mine is 59 years old ) and have never been asked to leave. Matter of fact, I've had a few RV park staff ask for a tour, with tons of questions, always with great interest.

Best wishes to you & your family re this major step / decision. I'm sure none of you will ever regret it. Make memories, not regrets.
