Hello from Austin, TX

Hello there. We bought a 1969 Safari for Christmas. We took it to the shop and had all new electrical, plumbing, propane lines, airconditioner and some smaller stuff. Since then we've been fixing cabinet latches and little things like that. We can't wait for our first campout in a couple of weeks. We owned a 1963 Shasta Airflyte before this Airstream and I feel like I'm in a mansion now!

There's a rally at Lake Buchanan next weekend with some great Airstreamers. Go to forums/rally zone/other rally and look at Canyon of the Eagles. There have been some cancelations. The 69 Safari is a great model yr and trailer. have fun!

Welcome to the forums!

We're also new owners in the ATX.

If I make it out to Lake Buchanan, I hope to see you there.

Hi Ya'll, welcome to the forum moonpie. We got our 1969 Caravel in September but do not have a hitch on our new tv yet. Can we still come to the rally and look ??

You will learn a lot from attending a rally besides having some fun. There are people there who are pros at the Airstream thing and you can learn the tricks. And we have put the Vintage trailers back together so great tips on restoration.

Seems like lots of new owners in Austin. Welcome to the boards, you've found the best place to have any Airstream questions answered.

Welcome from DFW. There is a lot of silver fever in Austin. Love the business "Hey Cupcake" in the vintage trailers! It made us pull over.

It's starting to look like a Central Texas meetup might be in order!

I thought I recognised you

Hello LCurrie, and welcome to the forum. I thought I recognised you from the T&TTT forum, went back and checked, and I was right.

Again, welcome to the forum, and wellcome to Airstreaming.
