Well, I'm back in the Airstream fold...

We picked up a B-Van yesterday from a dealer in Kansas City... it's a '94 with a 460 and only 31,000 miles on it... and no dry seals! Brand new tires, and except for two small dents, curtains in need of replacement and some sun-damaged upholstery on the driver's side, it looks like a new van. It'll need a little TLC after fifteen years... but all of the systems work, it has new coach and engine batteries (like brand-new on Friday new). This is our first B-Van, although we've had a Ford van conversion in the past, and of course our '85 325... It's smaller than the Born Free 23RK we just sold, has the cabinetry of the '94 tri-axle we had, and more room and amenities than our old van conversion, and will be able to easily tow our Bigfoot 25RQ. I think it's going to be a great coach for us!

Thanks everyone!

Brad, our first road trip was bringing it the 330 miles home yesterday...

I've got some work to do on it before it's really ready for our first road trip, but I suspect that we may be headed for Connecticut to visit our daughter and grand-daughter later this summer...
