Hi Forum!

Hello everyone!

My name is Lew Farber. While I am not new to RV'ing ( I recently sold my '98 Monaco Dynasty diesel pusher) I am to Airstreaming. I have just purchased a new '06 International 19' Bambi and am really impressed with the quality of the unit! I am a Certified RV Tech and plan to do a lot of mods to little Bambi to suit my tastes and style.

I operate a mobile RV service business based in Naples, FL and plan to use the Bambi as 'home' when I hit the road in May for my yearly cross-country travels and work schedule. I am also a jewelry designer and custom goldsmith (30 years) and would be more than willing to answer any questions that Forum members may have in these two areas of my expertise.

It looks like a great forum and I plan on visiting on a regular basis.

Thanks!

Lew

Hey Lew!

Welcome to the Forums!

I used to own a í01 diesel pusher & dragged a Range Rover around the country. I enjoy the Airstreams much more. Fiddling with an over-priced, under built motor home is nowhere near as much fun as tinkering and/or refurbishing an Airstream.

Welcome to the fourms. So how difficult would it be to gold plate an Airstream?

Lew, welcome to the forums. There are several of us forum members in and around the area you are staying at now, and this area is a great spot to do seasonal maintenance and repairs on RV's.

Hey Terry,

What IS your location. I will be servicing rigs in most of SW FL and I just might stop by your park. Plus, I have a packet of info, certificates, licenses and all of that other stuff for the park managers so they know i'm legit and for real.

You can PM me at lew@gorge.net

Thanks!

TL,

It's not really hard to gold plate a 'Stream. The problem is finding a tank big enough to hold one while you fill it with plating solution!(LOL)......and that's a LOT of solution!!!!!!

Hey Norm,

I'm really excited about the Airstream. Feels like I've joined a 'family'. It is especially gratifying now that I have something to offer fellow 'Streamers in the way of advice and service. I plan on attending the factory tech program to become an Airstream authorized service center.
