My wife and I just fell into the deal of a lifetime and have acquired a 79 31 foot Excella 500. Some day I might pass on just how good of a deal but for now lets just say it was fantastic. Both of us have lots of questions and plan to be regulars here.

Now, come on...we have to know about this "deal". You can't just leave us hanging here. We need pictures and information. Congratulations. We promise we won't all arrive and take your trailer away if you tell us about the "deal". We really will be happy for you. There are others here who got great deals, even free deals on their A/S.

Welcome aboard. The best deal I've seen on these boards was free. If you did better than that you really are lucky! Would you please post some pictures of your new toy? To a lot of us Airstream pictures are better than porn. LOL!

Yep, first is a check of all the systems, we have to do some work on the hot water tank or replace it and ensure the rest of the water and waste systems are working. Then a strip and polish will take place. Somewhere in there my wife wants to replace the earth tone interior colors with a blue and light gray, etc, etc...

I figure it will be in a constant state of change for the next couple of years.
