Welcome

You've come to the right place! I have learned SO much here - lot's of helpful people, lots of experience, examples of projects in progress and completed. Do a search for any topic you need info on, then ask away if you can't find what you want to know.
Welcome to the forums,
Dave

Welcome to the forums! As Fyrzowt says ~ this is the place! Post some pictures of your Excella, we love pictures! BTW, when asking how to fix, or what to do with this widget... if you post a photo to go with your question you are likely to get better responses!

Hope you enjoy your Airstream! They are great!

Hello GTA and congratulations

We are down the road a few miles in Forsyth. Hope we can help with any issues or questions.
Glad there is another member to the Georgia Airstream owners list.
Was it a long trip to bring it to home?

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your new Airstream. I hate to rain on your happy parade but with our first trailer, a 25' Tradewind, I pulled it with a 1/2 ton Ford 4.6 and the truck was at its limit, it would of been scary to pull anything larger than the 25'.

Hey GTA30736, I am just up the road in East Ridge and Sugarfoot is just about 2 miles from me. Welcome to the forums!!!! Let us know if there is anything we can help you with. You might want to consider the Florida Get-together at Topsail on Jan. 5-7. Sugarfoot and I are both going, plus several others that attend our North Georgia rallies in the spring and fall. The next rally in our area is scheduled for April 20-22, so mark your calendar. We will be at the Georgia Mtn Fairgrounds. Stay tuned for details.

Let's hear it for Ringgold

Welcome GTA30736, how about that, our Airstreams share common ground, literally! I live near Kathy, but my TW resides in Ringgold also. If you've been on Dietz Rd since July, you've passed by. Yes, if you can, please join us at one of the upcoming rallies. Tons of fun and lots of good people. Sounds like you've made a great purchase. Do let us know if you have questions or need any help with anything. Glad your here!

GTA, looks like a really nice find. Did you find it locally, or have to go out of town? That's going to be lovely once you give it the TLC it needs. Glad you're finding good info in the forums. I believe it is one of the most valuable resources on the web.

purchased this at an auto auction south atlanta

just south of atlanta i still cant believe few bidders on this but it was a auto auction i dident think i would get it ..impaitent auctioneer dropped the hammer ; ) i was the high bidder found a little AS few years ago 64? caravell i wanted but i let someone else get it due to me not having any time to restore it i might have wished for a smaller tt this thing is hugh but i now have some time to spend on one
Sugarfoot yes i travel dietz often
kposey my uncle runs the lions booth at the Ga mt fair or has for the last few times thats my target date for good enough
Chaplain Kent yes i need a better puller : ) but i still couldent believe 34ft with a 4.3 i wouldent have been able to stop very well and at 55 it started to wiggle looking for a better tow vehicle any suggestions?

Well, I'll be. I wouldn't have expected to find an AS at an auto acution. That just goes to show, you never know where one will turn up.

GTA, the Mtn. Fairgrounds/Georgia Spring thing is the weekend of April 20-21st, 2007. Hopefully, you will have your rig "good enough" by then. We'll be pulling for you.
