Although this isn't my very first post -- it's close -- it is high time I introduced myself properly, now that I finally read the "tips for new members" thread, so...
Hi all, I'm jd. My wife (Carolyn) and I ordered ourselves a 2007 20' Safari SE/LS "Beach Club" last month. We've confirmed the build order with Airstream, received the VIN, and have a scheduled build date at the end of September 2006. We anticipate delivery at the end of October, which I can tell you just isn't soon enough: this will be our very first trailer! The forum has been fantastically helpful to us in making our choice, as I've been lurking for many months now: thanks to all for sharing all your thoughts, tips, and advice.
Quirky thing: the build order from Airstream for our trailer was annotated with "this is the last VIN to be built with Beach Club interior." I haven't confirmed this independently, but already our AS seems that much more special to us (we really like that interior!)
Carolyn and I aren't retirees; we are both mid-career professionals, looking to spend more time together with our two little dogs. We're most interested in boondocking, and for our first "modifications" we're looking into a solar PV system augmented with a generator (I have my eye on that Yamaha EF2400is tri-fuel!). We're off to Camping World today for the first time, "just to look around"
Anyway, that's it for now.
