Title should be Streams come true.

Big congrats! and welcome to the forums. If you don't have plans for New Years you can join in on the 4CU's New Years Eve soiree at Mt. Picacho.

Be sure to add the pics. We love pictures here.

I got her home! Towed beautifully with a 3/4 ton Silverado.
BF liked the motorized hitch.
Cleaned up the dustiness and seems to be in great shape.
So fun discovering cubby holes and outlets and lights and fans and accessories left in drawers.
Dry desert made a few blind pull plastic thingies crumble in hand, will print a few with my 3D printer!
The door frame to shower stall needs a little caulking after making sure mold is gone.

Love that she is so steady while walking around and cleaning.
More tomorrow.....

We have a l988 25' also. We love it and hope you will too. I like the window in the bathroom, something the newer trailers have deleted.

If you get a chance, go to the campground at Chiricahua National Monument just south of Wilcox, AZ. The maximum size A/S that can get into the campground is a 25' due clearance requirements for the cement drainage ditches crossing the entry way. It is a beautiful park with super hiking trails built by the CCC in the l930s. There are no hookups, but water is available.

The Chiricahua campground was moved to top of list last night!!
BF is Tombstone native.
Visited as hiker once.
Thanks for the limit info.
I already love her!!
She was made to be towed and BF's Silverado was made to tow things.
So happy they get along so well.
