Smile Excited Newcomer

Just purchased a 92 Excella in perfect condition. Can't wait to take it out in the Spring. Carolyn and I are retiring from education in June. Planning a trip out west for the month of July for starters. We have camped with pop-ups before and look forward to our new "luxury". Bill

I retired in 2000 and took a great trip in July of that year. Try this, we went to the Calgory Stampede in Calgory Canada. On the trip we also visited Glacier Nat. Park and Banf in Canada. Beautiful country all the way, and the Stampede was wonderful. Very clean and well run. Very nice people as well.

Welcome neighbor! I was hoping with the new dealer in town that maybe we would get a few more Airstream owners in our fair city.

Bill & Carolyn: Welcome to the Airstream family. You will enjoy this group of Airstream owners. Lindsey and I are happy you became the new owners for a coach. We look forward to seeing you again and on the road. Make sure to get to know John HD on the forum. He has a coach just like yours. Rich

PS: If you need some pictures until Spring comes, send me an email at
