Greetings fellow streamers!

Hello all!
We are thrilled to be back in an Airstream with the recent purchase of our 2011 28' Flying Cloud. This is our third Airstream and hopefully our last. I say that, of course, knowing fully well that might not be the case. We do feel like having gone through two coaches, we've figured out what kind of Airstream would best fit us, our personalities, camping style, etc.

We are so excited to pick up our Airstream at Airstream Northwest near Seattle, WA. They were great to work with. Unlike another dealership we dealt with in California. I caution doing business with Sky River RV. At least if you do, get everything in writing. Enough of the negative.

Our coach is pretty stock. We did have them swap out the oven for a microwave, similar to the new Eddie Bauer models. Yes, it's true, I can't camp without a microwave and have no use for the oven.

We have two jack russell terriers who LOVE to camp. Our smaller one would sit on the back of the sofa of our old trailer and look out the front window. I was thrilled that our new coach has a built in storage compartment behind the sofa, so I imagine she'll spend most of her time there--without the risk of falling behind!

I look forward to hearing about your adventures and sharing ours!
Best,
Mandy and Garett

Congrats! Three was the magic number for us as well. We've been really happy with our Flying Cloud. Would love to see some pictures of your interior if you get the chance.

Happy Travels!

I'd love to post pictures. But I only see how to post photos on the main photo section. Can I post them on this thread? Or directly on my profile? Thanks for the help.

Here is our new trailer! We don't pick it up until the end of March, which seems so far away...

Very nice looking Airstream. Welcome (back)!! We have visited the Covington dealer and also found the experience pleasant (even though we bought used and not through them).
