Having already posted a couple of questions, and receiving excellent answers, it's time for a proper introduction.
We are Rob and Linda, living in Hurst, Texas, about mid-way between Dallas and Fort Worth. We just purchased a gorgeous and essentially unused 2014 23D International Serenity that we found right here in the classifieds from the most delightful gentleman. We just couldn't be happier, as a couple of 76-year-olds, this beautiful Airstream is the RV of our dreams; we simply love it!
We are coming out of a really nice 2010 Casita 17-footer, so the Airstream seems positively cavernous! Our Casita was nice, although we bought it new, I replaced 100% of the factory "woodwork" (MDF) with my own, constructed of ash. I have been asked if I intended to do similar "mods" to the Airstream... "no way, folks," we're loving this Airstream just the way it is!
We were pulling our Casita with a '96 Toyota Land Cruiser that we've had nearly a decade, but sadly, the 'Cruiser just won't be up to the task of hauling the 23D... especially when we head to the mountains. So, the Land Cruiser must go and we've pretty well narrowed the search for a new tow vehicle to the new Ford F150 3.5 EcoBoost or the Toyota Tundra 5.7.
We are so excited to be new Airstreamers!
All the best to all,
Rob & Linda
PS: Here's a photo of our little Casita... it was nice, but compared to our new 23D, it's just claustrophobic!
