Smile Brand New '64 Globetrotter came home today

I've been reading on these forums for a few weeks while negotiating the purchase of my new Globetrotter. I must say this is a very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and generous collection of like minded folks. I hope to contribute something back in return for all of the wisdom and experience I have read here.
As far as the new GT, it's a very fine unit, not perfect, not even close, but darn near ready for camping. My parents are fulltimers in an 06 Excella cruising across the country. Isn't the GT more stylish, even without the corian and satellite dish?
Looking forward to sharing stories with fellow Airstreamers!

Um... the answer depends on whether or not your folks are forum members?

But you can park that highly cute globbie in places a 30 footer will never fit!

Welcome to the boards.

I certainly think so!

Hope you get as much enjoyment from yours as we have ours! Let me know if there is anything we can do to help you get to know each other ~

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I'm just beginning to assess the condition of the systems and I think all in all it's good.

Thumbs up Nothing like a "new" trailer ...

Congratulations! We recently bought a '65 Globetrotter, and I break into a crazy grin each morning when I look out the back windows from our kitchen and see it gleaming in the backyard. We already have one trip in the books, with two more planned in the next couple of months ... I'm addicted.

Congratulations GlobeTrottin!! I too am a fan of the classic AS. Not to say that the new ones are not very nice. I remember the day we brought ours home (one month ago); it was very exciting. May this be the beginning of great adventures in your new coach!
