Calif. Towing service

I need to find a company that will tow my Safari from northern California to Southern Califorina, to its new owner.

Any idea of what it would cost and who could do it?

Tim,

There used to be a site with Airstream links, which had a transport service on it. I will search for it, and forward it to you if I find it.

Tim, I would contact several RV dealerships, and inquirer as to whom transports their own dealer stock. There are plenty of independent transport folks roaming about. I would first consider finding one of these folks that tow new trailers out of manufacturing, like Forest River products built in Rialto. Generally these independents are looking for something to tow on their return trips.
Congratulations on your sale of your Safari
Jeff

Thanks guys,

I sent the buyer a list of transporters from AirstreamTrailers.com.

They should be able to find something from there.

Heading to Dallas, Fort Worth on I-10 returning via I-40 via Amarillo and Northern New Mexico.
Can take or bring any airstream in either direction.
