Ours is coming in a container. The older ones aren't as wide so she fits in snugly and the build a console around to keep from moving. I was going to do RORO but the cost was a lot higher and I'd already gone over budget!

Much cheaper in a container and your lucky she fits. Flat racks are even more expensive. I'm sure she will be fine😄 looking forward to hearing when it arrives.

Safe travels! I hope she gets to you safely. Looks like a beautiful exterior on that one!

Thank you! I'm nervous to say the least, but fingers crossed she makes it across the ditch unscathed. It's been a long wait so I'll be glad when she finally arrives!

So my airstream is due to hit Australian land on Wednesday! Hopefully cleared by customs and ready to pick up Friday! Feeling like a kid at Christmas time! Can't wait to have the silver trailer in my rear view mirror

How exciting....... She will look great behind your vehicle and then the experience of fixing her up. Good luck. We are hoping our parts will leave the states this week and hopefully will be all good to go just after Xmas. Yay

Thank you Sbb! It just so happens I have a very handy husband who is a boilermaker/weld specialist! Perfect for airstream repairs and he's actually worked on two over here already. Check out Airstream Family and Happy Camper Pizza on Facebook. He repaired some rear end sag on their 28ft, and built gas bottle holders and other stuff on the pizza van. It's great to share the excitement and dare I say "journey" with like minded people! xx

Yes, but the world will gain one more loved and restored one. Look forward to following your journey. :-)
