Had your maiden voyage yet?

We live in the same neck of the woods, hope to catch you on the road some time. We just took ours out for the first time last weekend to Deception Pass state park. Easy, flat drive and a spectacular place to visit. I'd highly reccomend for a first time trip. I cant remember the last time we had so much fun camping.

PS - I tow with an "08 F150 SCrew 5.4 (tow package) with a Equalizer WD hitch and it was great - but again, no hills yet!

btowntincan - great recommendation on Deception Pass! We took our maiden voyage this past weekend there and had a spectacular time. Love the Airstream (what's not to love) and the EB 25' fit us and our 16 year old perfectly. We joined another family what we're friends with and had a blast. Some pics (finally):













Boondocked. Used all the systems (except TV radio). Including the oven. Dumped without making a mess. Of course made a bunch of silly first timer mistakes but survived it all and got back in one piece.

Thanks everyone for all the great advice... see you on the road soon.

BC

That's a good looking rig

Great pictures, very reminiscent of our trip. I think that's a great campground. Glad things turned out so well on your first trip.

Did you end up using the rear clamshell door much? Any hassle with it?

Thank you!

Rear clamshell stayed closed this trip. It was cold at night so we kept the AS buttoned up and warm. We were out-and-about during the day and left it closed. Our take on the clamshell is that it is a) easy to open b) the table wiggles a bit more than the same model without and c) the under-bench situation is different. We're hoping for some warm weather trips that will include surfboards that will bring the whole clamshell situation into play.
