Just want to say, Welcome Aboard. Remember, if you have any questions about Airstreams, this is the place to get the answers. If we can't give you an answer, then it's an invalid question !
Don't forget to make sure you have enough truck to tow the AS that you want (towing capacity etc), and not the other way around.
If you get your AS prior to November, I hope that you consider the California Streamers Fall Rally. A bunch of super nice AS owners. A nice way to learn and have the questions answered on everything AS.
Well, enough of my BS. Once again, welcome aboard.
