'92 Excella 29'

Just bought a 92 Excella 29' and looking forward to our first trip in June. Any suggestions about specific characteristics of this age and length of AS? It is in great shape. Bill

Nothing comes to mind. Any Airstream can be subject to leaks, bad axles, rot in the floor, and so forth, but there is no a priori reason to suspect any such problems in so recent a model.

In fact, an arguement could be sustained that your coach represents the very best period of Airstream production.

Congradulations,

Mark

Bill, You have purchased what I consider to be the premier Airstream trailer for traveling. They are a delight to pull, they have tremendous amounts of storage. They do not waste a lot of space in the seldom used bathroom (in comparison to the rest of the trailer) and it has tremendous amounts of storage (did I say storage?) I dislike the twins, however, I will sacrifice that for the entirity of the package.
I have two, one is for sale, and I did do one thing that I think makes the trailer a little more usable. I took parts Airstream used to put a sliding bathroom door in the late eighties/early ninety 34' trailers, and used them to convert my bathroom door to a slider rather than a swinging door. I haven't done it, however, then, if you desired, you could get one of the folding privacy curtains from a late model Safari, and locate it at the end of the hall next to the kitchen. That way, the Bath,bedroom, and closets would all be available at one time while dressing, yet private.
Enjoy your unit!
jerry

I'm taking a few minutes tonight to find my way around the forums section of this web site. Just thought I would add my .02 and say high to another '92, 29' Excella owner. We love ours. It has the twin beds in the rear. And lots of storage - yes somebody did say storage and I love it. This trailer originally belonged to my mother and father. My mom was a storage nut! If one blanket is good she wanted two. If one package of toilet paper was plenty she definitely had a second. There is no such thing as too much storage. Anyway, we love our Excella and hope to use it for many more years.

Lucius,
I really liked the warmth of the wood in your trailer when I talked with you at Hiawassee. Thanks for letting me take a picture of your side table. That will be the next addition to the trailer before I go with the solar system. Hope you had a safe trip back.
