We bought our #1 Tradewind 25' 1971 in 1992. 2 or 3 years later, we blew the plumbing (bad winterizing)
Tried to fix it, in a rush, living in center city Philadelphia, the trailer about 25 miles away in storage in New Jersey. No time, always missing some tools,....
Mike drove by an RV dealer, rows upon rows of beautiful brand new white trailers. Sure, they were ready to make a deal if we wanted to buy this "eyesore".
So, we bought our #2: Land Yatch International 29' 1974 around 1994. Now we had to store 2 AS.
We moved to VA, end of 1996, bringing both trailer with us.
A few months ago, we got smart, and realized that the tail sag we had noticed was not normal (not the rear bath fault of course, I know
Having not made up our mind yet/find time,..., about building a house, we have been living in #2 since 1996: 8 months at home, 4 months on the road, each year.
So, we decided it was time to upgrade anyway (difficult to do repairs when living in it).
We just brought home our #3: Excella 32' 1990.
We talked about selling #1 , using #2 as a guest room now. I have the feeling that we are going to stay a 3 Airstreams family for the time being.
If only we had stayed in Philadelphia.... It's getting to be crowed in here.
