Thumbs up 2004 34 ft Limited with slide

Has anyone else purchased one of these this year? We got home with ours last Wednesday. The quality is great. Quality control must be working overtime. I am using the Blue Ox hitch and towing with a 2004 F-350 Ford Power Stroke 4 x 4, 4 door. We ordered this truck with the camper special package with gives us the rear stabilizer bar and heavy front springs. The ride and handling is great !!!! Don't be afraid of the one ton ride. It is not harsh loaded or unloaded. The stability the rear stablilizer bar added is nice. So far so good !!! This is Airstream number three.

Bill,

How much of a drop are you using with your ball mount?

6 inches? 8 inches?

Ordered new 34 ft classic limited, with slide out

We won't get this until January. We can hardly wait. We have heard such good things about Bill Thomas Camper Sales, we are hoping to have few problems. I know we are to stay on his site for one or two days while we make sure everything is working.

Weather may be a problem. We already have 6 inches of snow. Hope for the best. We will be testing in cold weather. Will keep you informed of our luck. Sure hope the furnace works well!

We ordered the Hensley Hitch which has already been delivered to the dealer.

Congratulations Myrna! You will find that Bill Thomas is one of the premier Airstream dealers in the US. We have bought two Airstreams from him, the current being a 30' Classic slideout. They will have you prepped and ready for your overnight there at the dealer. Mine was set up, lights on furnace pumping, fridge on and radio playing my wife's favorite station! BTW, one of the nice touches is that you will find your new trailer Walbernized!

Leroy will give you the tour of your new Limited and treat you like royalty. He's a great guy and a real asset to Bill's dealership.

Regards,

Jack

Well Myrna, we may meet at Bill Thomas.

We are planning to pickup our "new" used 2002 Classic 31' on the 19th.

Hope to head southwest to Mesa for the first half of our winter then on to Tucson.

Dave & Kathie

We just took delivery on our trailer

Hi, Dave and Kathy. We spent the night at Bill Thomas Camper Sales. Leroy took very good care of us. We were treated royally. The trailer is very elegant. Better than we expected. I am sure you will be very pleased. We slept very little. Too excited and so many things to learn.

Have a great trip!! p.s. I am also myrna but had password trouble.

Porky,
You are going to love that trailer.
We had the Hensley Hitch installed also. It pulled like a dream. The big trucks didn't bother us at all. It is much easier to pull than our old "SOB". We went from 28 foot trailer to 34 foot. It is so much easier to pull than our "2001 Kountry Comfort" with the Pull-Tite hitch. We also noticed better gas mileage on our trip home from the dealer in Wentzville, Mo.
We just found the escape window in the rear bedroom. Just pull out the screen and push the big window out and crawl out. Hope we never need that!
The sound system is awesome. I will have to learn how to post pictures to the site.
Enjoy your new trailer and truck!!

Just curious about the rear window, I haven't kicked mine out yet, is it susposed to pop out of the frame? I was thinking that you might have to open the window to escape.

The rear window should be hinged at the top. It will pop open but can be easily closed. I used to pop the rear window open on our '01 Safari whenever I had it home for cleaning. I used to pass the hose from my home's central vaccum though the opening. I haven't done this with the Classic due to a screen being present.

In a panic situation finding the latches and unhooking might take more time than I would want to devote to it. Getting two of us out the window in a timely manner would not be a pretty site. I wonder if anyone has acutually used the rear window as an excape?
I passed on a rear door 5 years ago and I am still kicking myself over that one, even though I ended up with a nicer trailer.
