FINALLY got my 2007 25' Safari

After a couple of false starts at the end of last year, I just purchased a 2007 Safari LS FB. I had originally been looking at the newer model Ocean Breeze, however, I couldn't find any that weren't at a premium, and when I did try to purchase a couple, I guess I was a day late and a dollar short.

Frustrated, I reevaluated everything and came back to the trusty AirForums time and again. You very nice folks suggested patience to find the right deal, and I lucked out on an Airstream I found on eBay.

This process has taken about 7 months, but it was worth the wait. I had to learn a lot about towing vehicles, types of airstreams and a lot of other topics I had no idea about. After reading the Forums quite a bit, I settled on the Toyota Tundra for our tow vehicle and bought it the day before they announced the massive Toyota brake recall

I then settled on the exact size of Airstream I wanted (25') and started narrowing my search. I decided new might not be best for our first trailer, since I wasn't sure what our learning curve was going to be and how many dents we would put in it. I figured a little older would take away some of the concern of getting that first scratch.

I found a nice 25' with only a few thousand miles. Once again, by reading the Forum, I found out about Horizon Transport, who I would definitely recommend. Our driver was wonderful and really helped us out a lot. He was able to bring the unit through driving rain all the way from NJ without any issues and ahead of time!

I know am a happy owner of a new (to me) Safari and have already scheduled our trip to the keys.

Thanks to everyone for all of their help!

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Congratulations on your new baby!

We have an '05 25FB that has covered over 50,000 miles and spent almost 600 nights in. The floor plan is great for the long haul.

Have safe travels and many great Airstream adventures.

Brian
