Hi from Ontario, Canada

We have purchased our new to us 2011 30' Limited Classic "The Cabin". I cannot believe how much I enjoy camping in this AS. I vowed I would never camp again after our last rainy weekend in a tent. We have had a number of motor homes of different sizes and would go to Arizona for the winter, where we bought a park model in a 55'+ community. That lasted about 3 years as we decided we wanted to travel more. We have never pulled a travel trailer before and we are amazed at the convience over the motor home. (Less rattling noises) There is a lot to learn and need to get better with our turns. Hopefully that will come with practice. TV is a 2012 VW Tourag Turbo diesel. Pulls 30' fine.

So glad to have joined this forum. Interesting and informative members. Planning (wrong word as my husband likes not to plan) a huge trip to California, leaving Augs. 4th, wish us luck!

Hello from just down the 401!

Congratulations on your Airstream! We just purchased this year also and I had never towed anything quite this large before. I'm happy to report though that after a few practice sessions and one medium journey by myself, I'm already feeling pretty comfortable. Still working on perfecting the backing up, but these trailers really are easy to drive when set up properly.

Enjoy your adventures and update us on your progress!

Okay no trailer, but I know you'll dig my 310 turbo diesel.

Happy trails from Hillsburgh Ontario; keep the rubber side down.

Per Mare, Per Terram and may all your campaigns be successful.

We have been RVing since 1968, Airstreaming since 1978 and joined the Ontario Unit in 1983. We have been full-timing for the past 10 years. It has been a hoot! I recommend the Ontario Unit as a bunch of pretty good folks. Our WBCCI membership is focused on the Unit although we have been to a number of Region and International rallies in the past.

Welcome aboard.
