Welcome! There's a lot of good info here on importing Airstreams, and if you have questions, ask away! Please tell us more about your classic cars, too.

Hello and welcome. What do you plan on using as a tow vehicle (TV)? Something vintage?

Have you contacted any Airstream owners in the UK?

If not, we can provide some names and phone numbers for you to call.

They certainly could be a great help to you in deciding what and how and from whom.

You have a number of very good vehicles, that make great tow vehicles for Airstreams.

Based on those numbers, you should have at least 5 or 6 of them, you know, like tow vehicles, you should have spare Airstreams too.

Use caution in your selection of an Airstream that you may purchase for shipment to the UK.

If we can help, please let us know.

Andy

Thanks Andy - my wife needs no encouragement when it comes to purchasing USA vintage vehicles & we only need 1 airsteam and no more as we already have a vintage caravan. Thanks for your e-mail - we have put your site in our favs.
