Welcome to the forum. So sorry you had to go through Rita, but very glad you had the Airstream. They're easy to fall in love with. We need pictures here on the forum.

Welcome to the forums!
Believe it or not, many of us wish we could live for extended periods in our Airstreams, although we would do that by choice, not necessity. Good luck getting your home in order.

Temporary housing

That is remarkable. The timing. You are soo fortunate to have that available to you. I have a gutted 70's Airstream (on the downhill to completion) that is undergoing a custom restore that will be the envy of any new Airstream owner when it is done and thought how unfortunate, the timing, that I could not offer my finished airstream to a responsible and grateful couple or individual who needed a temporary place to regroup after such a tremendous tragedy. That is one of the dynamics in owning one of these, they offer versatility.

I wish you both all the best. Many gratuitous salutations for having survived such a thing.

Runnin' for the border...

My wife and I and two cats ran from Katrina in our newly aquired 96 '34 foot Ltd. for seven weeks. Was pretty darned comfortable.

Welcome to the forums. God was looking out for you when you purchased the Airstream just in time to have a home. I hope you will be settled in your "solid" home soon and have many happy and safe camping trips in your new Airstream.

Welcome Sarah

I'm so glad you had such a wonderful trailer to move into when you needed it. I am new to the forum as well and have found it to be a wonderful place and full of all sorts of information. I'm certain you will find it helpful in the future.

I also had to live in mine when the builder of my home left me high and dry way early in the process. I have never been so grateful for my little Bambi!
