I would like to thank everyone as a community (so as not to leave anyone out). If not for this site, I would think I was alone for wanting to do a renovation on a 30 year old trailer and may not have taken on the project for fear of not being able to complete it. I read through ALOT of posts here for a few months and decided it was possible, made a purchase and have loved every minute of the process. Thanks!

I discovered the Forum a few months before we bought our Safari. I was helped by many in knowing what to look for and what to ask. Since we bought the trailer, I have been helped by many in fixing things, ideas for improvements, and knowing we are not alone in having many quality control problems.

It all started November 6th 2008 with this little thread, Airstream or Pop-up?

then we didn’t know, vintage vs. new?

We were 5 seconds away from buying a 2005 but decided to not sign and post a pic for the Airforum members to give us some advice, we suspected something peculiar,

All the while for 2 mo. we had watched a listing on the classifieds, and asked this question because we thought we were crazy to drive 500 miles one way to see a camper:

I have received help from 2airishuman, Cameront120, Insideout, Overlander63, Purman, Silver egg, Becky billrae, Freshair, Dogpound, Wheel interested, Pink1, Wayneandsam, 99limited34, Rangerj, HowieE, Sixty3tw4us, Hankandlois, Jsprad, Garfield, Janet, COArgosy78, 75Argosy1, AZ-JH, Bmklawt, Mistermcfrug, Nayl, Robertsunrus, AZFlycaster, Tphan, Ahab, Hodag, Silverwanabe, PaulyG, Cracker, Alumin8, Overlander64 (super post with pics), Mutcth, Bredlo, Silverranger, Klattu, Alwisman, Jcanvera, AlbertF, Biggoofball, Richhog, and Andy at Inland RV to name only a few!!!!

The latest thread sums up the events of one solid year of hunting for our dream Airstream,

Thank you everyone who helped us achieve this goal, we’re going to be counting on you through the years to help us keep the lil 66’ on the road!

Merry Christmas!

At the top of my very long list, I'd say this thread helped me save my life:

It'll soon be three years.

Thank you forum members.

Thumbs up Long before the forums...

Do you know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth's rite of Passage?

His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him an leaves him alone. He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it. He cannot cry out for help to anyone.

Once he survives the night, he is a MAN.

He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his own.

The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him . Maybe even some human might do him
harm. The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man!
Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold.

It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him.
He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.

We, too, are never alone.
Even when we don't know it, God is watching over us, Sitting on the stump beside us.
When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.

Moral of the story:
Just because you can't see God,
Doesn't mean He is not there.
"For we walk by faith, not by sight."

“We were young and knew we're old and everyone else knows everything.”

"It is more wiser to ponder all things with diligent suspicion, than follow with blind assumption."
