Talking Excited doesn't even begin to describe my feelings!!

Hello Fellow Airstreamers,
We did it!! We purchased our new Airstream Safari 30' Bunk in California this past weekend and made the 600 mile + inaugural trip back home to AZ. After painstaking research and terrific advice from this community we decide this model will best suit our growing family for many years. Thank you for all of your help! After two nights of camping my 3 year old did not want me to take it to our storage spot when we got home. There is nothing better than hearing your 3 year old tell you "Daddy I love my bedroom in the Airstream when can we go again?" The night before we picked her up at the dealer I did not sleep very well it was like the night before Christmas and I knew Santa was bringing something really good this year! We negotiated an Equal-i-zer hitch system in the deal and I'm very happy with this set-up. My F250 PSD tows like a dream in the mountains.

Congrats AZstreamin. Looks like a great rig for a growing family and it sounds like your young son will be pullin' on your leg each weekend for a trip somewhere. What a great period of time for you and your family. Have fun because they grow up so very fast. We have two, one three and one five, and they're our grandchildren and just love camping in the Airstream with MIMI and POP. We relish every moment as well. Have a great time with your family Airstreaming!

Porky, the deal is what made me go to Cali Sky River RV in Paso Robles My AS is a brand new '05 Loaded Safari LS with every option available and they wanted to move it bad so we negotiated over $16,000 (27%) off list + free Equal-i-zer hitch system. It was a very fair deal and I could not buy a late model used 30' in AZ for a similar price. I wanted to buy local but just could not get the right deal. So the motto applies See more, do more, live more....I'll travel a little more for a better deal any day. Besides its fun we stayed in central coast wine country and can't wait to go back.. Beautiful country. I highly recommend a trip to the Central Coast of CA wow!

Enjoy your new trailer, and the excitement of your young child!

My daughter is 17, and thinks trailer travel is boring. We could leave her home alone while we travel, but she needs to rebuild our trust due to previous situations. So she will stay with grandparents while we take the trailer to Aspen for two weeks this summer.

Trust: 1) Trust is when they accept your authority as a consequence of the excellent example you have provided over the years and you know they are doing what they would do if you were standing next to them when you are not.

Off-Airstream topic, sorry....

Over59: Yes! We discussed that "character is what you do when you think nobody is looking".

Congrats on new A/S

I can't imagine a better way for a family to grow together in this day and age than camping together. A lot of us started with tents and moved up to where you are now. I couldn't be more excited for you all.
We live on the west side and we are presently looking for a place closer to home to store our Sovereign. We now store it on El Mirage north of Olive close to where I work. Its a great place with a dump station of sorts. But we're still looking.

I keep my trailer on El Mirage just noth of Northern. Sounds like out trailers sleep about a mile away from each other. It was the best price I could find for covered storage. I am very happy with the place, except for the fact it is 20+ miles from my house in North Central Phoenix.
