Dear all, I have just purchased my Airstream RV, after spending a lifetime wanting one, from a nice man in Dallas. I cannot wait for it to arrive in England My husband, Sandy, and I have travelled all over Europe and North Africa for years in various campervans. We are both superanuated Hippies making our way by painting watercolours and oil paintings to cover our costs. We are getting on a bit in years but will be off again soon. To travel is to be alive, even if the pace is slow. I am so happy about our new RV. that I dont know what else to say! Sandy is going to arrange a conversion to LPG so we dont cause the Earth to much trouble!! (or cost too much. ) Make Love not war! our best regards, Candy and Sandy

Hi All. Tim is off to US tomorrow to collect our airstream and drive up to Baltimore and hand over to the shippers. It should take approx. 3 weeks at sea to get to Porstmouth UK. Huge amounts of documentation etc all completed! And more to come when it arrives here!!! Not long to go now. regards, Candida

How excited you are! Which model of Airstream are you getting? My wife and I drove England a few years back from London to Gloucester and to Cornwall, my parents birthplace. For towing your caravan the carriageways we traveled are beautiful. However, the many narrow lanes especially in Cornwall must be a challenge. But the popularity of caravans was evident as we saw many them including the one (SOB) in my cousins yard. enjoy your slow pace.
Neil and Lynn.

Hello Candy and Sandy -- welcome to the Forums!

Aboard Peter's Pride on 8 March 1944, my father-in-law left Bury St. Edmunds for the last time. Returning from Berlin they lost their third engine over Hanover, Germany, and crash landed just short of the Luxembourg border. He did feel slighted that he was never able to pick up a bicycle he had ordered just off Picadilly Circus in London. He survives today as an elderly gentleman and I am sure he would extend his thanks to one of many cities that hosted American airmen in WW II.

Please return often and we will provide as much human assistance as we can. I understand your sentiments.

Hi to All, Thank you very much for your interest and the welcome. Yes, we are very excited about our new Airstream. Its a 1986 325. There is a picture of it on the classifieds. Tim will be well on the road to Baltimore by now. We saw our first Airstream RV in Southern Spain about 10 years ago. I think it was a 310. It was owned by a Dutch couple. We determind then that we should have one of our own someday. and now we have!
The first thing we will do when it arrives in England is to have an LPG conversion. Petrol is so expensive here in Europe, at 5.00 per gallon ($10.00 approx) oh, and take pictures as it arrives on the dock which I will do my best to post to the forum. Only a few more weeks to go! regards to all, Candida
