Ahoy hoy! CA newbie/wannabe

Hello, all! After lurking for a couple of days I thought I'd finally test the waters.

The hubby and I are still "wannabes" at this point, but someday we'd like to call a 22ft Sport home.

Well, I've got an update: for better or worse, we decided to roll the dice and got a 2005 Safari Bambi 19'er. I hope it's not a lemon! /gulp

After reading the forums until our eyes were jellified, we decided to go for a gently used model that (hopefully) has had all the kinks ironed out.

Thanks for all of the great knowledge, forum-folk!

Hi and welcome!
If you have the time available please come down to the (almost) coast for the NorCal rally in April: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...1-a-57149.html has a long string, and also look at the: help, need to ship to England string on the near-top of the portal page. its only our second rally but is great to meet a bunch of irregular folks who have a "normal" obsession with shiny houses. (Mine is shiny in theory, not in practice.) food, drink & fun, lots of info and geat people!

Congratulations! On your new Airstream and welcome to the forums. We have only been on a week or so but love them. Pictures yet? Susan

Thanks!

We won't be able to make the rally because of work, and we don't have any pictures yet (we only have a couple of lousy phone pics).

BUT our inaugural voyage should be happening this weekend (we still need to pick 'er up from the dealer). WE. ARE. SO. EXCITED.

We also bought a gently used a/s. We hope that you will have as much luck with yours as we have had. We didn't check out what we should have _ (anything)ie after reading the forum. But so far everything has worked for us and we are very pleased. Happy streaming to you. Susan

I reeeeeally wish I had thought to bring my camera, but here are some grainy phone pics:


Hubby flanked by the wolf moon and our new baby.


Wolf moon after dark and the soft glow of aluminum.


Inside view of the door and my other expensive aluminum object. Did I mention our tow vehicle is also silver?


Our first (test) meal. Yes, the oven works!
