Finally home !!!

Well, it took me a while to find proper transportation to The Netherlands, but I finally did.

Shipping from the West Coast is very expensive, would have cost more then the trailer itself. East Coast is affordable, but of course I had to get my trailer there too. Getting it there would have been very expensive too, so, I decided to have another vacation and towed it from Seattle to Galveston myself.

Took some D-tours along the way to visit friends and relatives, and visited some National Parks on the way. Amoung which was Yellowstone and Monument Valley. Most impressive was sleeping in my trailer under the Mexican Hat rock and driving through Monument Valley at sunrise.

My trailer was shipped to Zeebrugge, Belgium, were I picked it up myself and towed it home to The Netherlands.

Now I will be doing some work on it, to have it ready for next season. So, you will be hearing more about me soon!

Hi Jim, I missed this thread last year, but welcome to the forums, my ancestry is Dutch and German. Nice looking Dodge, I have done autobody repair for 32 years and have restored a few cars. If you ever get to the states in November they have a great car show in Daytona Beach Thanksgiving weekend that is call the Turkey run, it will take you a couple days to go through the whole thing. Enjoy your Airstream.

It was the same as yours!

Greetings Jim,

A friend recently emailed me a picture of my 1957 Dodge Custom Royal.
