Holy cow, what a welcome to the community. I'm so glad I got an Airstream now. I will post photos of the new baby hooked up to my truck when I pick it up. I'm so excited. I decided to have them install an electric hitch thing and a special tow bar called an Equal-i-zer, they also had to install a breaking thing called a P3? I'm getting lessons on driving with it even though I used to drive PLS trucks when i was in the Army because I want to make sure I'm not in over my head. I'll also post photos of the other modifications Had done like new carpet in the twin bed area and stuff.

My first trip is going up to Yellowstone so any advice on last minute camping areas with excellent views would be most appreciated.

Again, thank you for the warm welcome to the community!

Welcome to the forums! While you're in a shopping spree, you might want to also pick up a Honda EU-2000i generator, a couple of 6 gal. water jugs and a 10 gal. sewage tote cart. Boondocking opens up a lot of camping opportunities.

Great choice of equipment! I have been camping all of my life so I occasionally forget that some people have never camped! Thanks for reminding me! I hope you like the lifestyle. It isn't for everybody. I second the motion for purchasing a generator and spare water jugs. Have fun and welcome to the club.

Hey, Mario! Welcome to the Forums and welcome to another Tucson Airstreamer... you're in good company! You must have gone to Oasis...that's where we got our Bambi... Of course you know you're going to have to make it to a Four Corners Unit Rallly soon ... we'd love to officially welcome you to the wacky world of Aristreaming! There are a few upcoming rallies that are perfect... and the 4CU group is great.. PM me and I can fill you in with some rally details.

A suggestion: you might want to think about making your first trip a short one and close to home as a shake-down trip...so that you can see how everything is working and get your trailering legs under you...

You're gonna have a blast with your new toy!

Welcome to Airstream Forums. Yeah, like I own the forums. Except the truck, my wife took me to the Airstream dealer..."just to look." After about 45 minutes..."I want it!" I guess it was one of those "yes, dear." type of things...only I never called her dear.

Bottom line it happened that quick to me and I'm not sorry.

Good Luck,
Randy Bowman

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Ok.. checklist.. sigh.. water bottles, new honda 12000 generator pair.. OMG.. Wires, tubes, hoses, pop tarts, rear view mirror extensions.. HOLY C*** this got expensive fast. I think I have everything packed, if not there are stores on the way.. I think my head about popped off. I leave for her maiden voyage tomorow, oh, it's tomorrow already, I better get sleep.. Wish me luck guys, and if you see a bewildered skinny bald guy on the side of the road scratching his head on the way to Yellowstone next to an Airstream PLEASE STOP, it means I screwed something up..
