visiting your new Traveller

Hello Jim, and welcome!
My husband and I live close to Pacific Grove and would be happy to check out your new purchase sometime in the next week or two. We are fairly ignorant about Airstreams--other than what we've been learning in the forums-- since we're still awaiting delivery of our first one! But I think we could give you a decent idea of condition and hope we'd notice anything obvious. Let me know if you'd like us to see it, take pictures, etc., and give you our novice impressions.
Gelukkige slepen!
Janet

Hey Janet,
Jim let me know that he is headed out west on Wednesday, so maybe we can give him a warm welcome when he arrives. He is working on getting a rental truck to tow it north to Washington to ship with the Dodge. Jeff

Welkom, Jim.

Groeten uit Canada.

Ik kan niet het Nederlands te schrijven, so I'll stick to English.

I am impressed with the Dutch fascination for things American, and the interest in buying and shipping older cars and trailers. Is there a strong interest in the new "European" Airstream?

Thanks Remco!
Would be nice to meet each other, as soon as my trailer has arrived here, and the weather is clearing...

Thanks Björn!

If I'm correct, there are quite some Airstream events in Germany.
I'm looking forward to meeting each other there

Hi Janet,

Ha! you tried a little Dutch, right? "gelukkige slepen" would translate as "happy trailering".

As of what I know now, I will picking up the trailer no earlier then by the end of next week. I wasn't able to make arrangements at my office, neither for a rental with hitch.
Naturally I will be using my trailer for overnights during my travel to Seattle WA. And while still in the South, I shouldn't be in a hurry! So I'm trying to fit in a little vacationing too. Any directions to nearby camp grounds or along the I-5 North are welcome!

It's a little late...

Or early (in the morning...)
I arrived in Seattle WA Thursday and drove to Marina CA Friday.
It's 05:00 AM now, couldn't sleep..., because at 08:00 AM I am going to pick up my trailer at Castroville, CA.
10 minutes from here.
Will let you know later, first have to tow her to Seattle before snow falls!
I'm going North over the I-5. So, wave if you see me go by!
If there's anything I should see or some place I should go, please let me know!

Thanks for including the pictures of Jim with his new trailer. It was the perfect end to a good story. Ron

Well, not yet. As far as the perfect end is concerned.
After all the effort, it appeared to be too wide to fit the designated Ocean Container.



I was reassured it would be 85” wide. But it’s 8’ wide. Not just a little bit wider, but a mere 11” more.
Took me a few months to get over this great disappointment. That’s why you didn’t hear from me.

Hi Jim, is the trailer still in Washington?
Do I dare ask you who gave you a width measurement of only 85" inches?
Keep us posted,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
Somehow, I wasn't aware of the message you've left me.
Yes, the trailer is still in Washington state. I've just had it removed from the harbor storage and it's back at my good friend's property in Puyallup WA.
It was the seller that confirmed me the measurements, in writing, before the transaction. I needed to know, for transportation, as you all now know too...
Right now I'm still to depressed about it to take any action. I considered hauling it to any other harbor, to have it shipped RO/RO. If it's to be the SF area, I'll certainkly come by to visit you!
I'll let you know when the time comes!
Jim.
