outofcontrol------Kevin---wascobob here--thanks for the PM

My 1988 classic 290 is the rear twin bed configuration. If you go to Freds sight you will see that the twin configuration also has the rear wrap around windows,---very cool!!! The twins are very easy to convert to a crosswise queen. And no, I did not see the 290 on ebay until you pointed it out. I do like the bedroom configuration, however, the coach does not have the wrap around windows and I think that the bed is a double and not a queen.

The damage to the rear panels will probably cost thousands to replace so the coach would have to go cheap. If you are looking at it you may want to call Airstream in Jackson Center about possible repair costs. Sutton RV in Eugene or Springfield may be of some help---They are an Airstream dealer. I don't think there are many around capable of such repairs.

Good luck---Bob

Brought it Home

Well, we picked up our new motorhome last night. Ended up buying one from this website about 12 miles from my house. My wife beat the hell out of the seller, and I think we got a good deal. Sorry Jaiman.
I could tell that he was really going to miss the RV, and my wife said she saw a tear in his eye when he was taking a last look.
It made us feel good, that we were getting something special.

We had dinner in it last night, and planned out all our new adventures. I think my wife is more excited than me. And she's the one that has told me "we're not buying a motorhome!" for the last 3 years. I think the best move I made was to buy the 75th airstream coffee table book. my wife picked it up, and instantly became a raving fan of airstreams.

I think I'm going to become a regular here now, because I already have about 100 questions.

Thank you all for all your help, and I really can't tell you how excited we are!

Kevin,
Nice ride! Looks like a real keeper. Interesting to hear about your wife, mine was the same about a motorhome...but now we own one. That book also played a small part in my breaking her down over time. Now she tells everyone we own an Airstream...the kind you drive.

Ask your questions. That's what this forum is all about.

Enjoy the MoHo.

Everybody wins!

Kevin-

Congratulations!! Looks great in pictures...

1. Wife is happy to travel to motorcycle races...
2. Dog seems happy and comfortable on the couch
3. You have new toy and much comfy-er bed for race weekends

I see no victims here, just winners!

When and if stuff happens, take comfort that Forum members have probably been there and done it already..

Thanks, and yes, that is a Henry's. local beer for local boys.

I just spent $900 last night on shocks, front airbags, compressor, switches, gagues, and some misc. plumbing stuff.

I then took a nice chunk of flesh out of the heel of my palm putting the first air-bag in. The service guy at the RV shop shuddered when he saw what I was buying.
