I am David, code name "shadowwolf" in this forum, named after my favorite dog who is a timber grey wolfhybrid, beautiful and very friendly with one partial blue eye and a curly tail to make the vet think she's a Malamute!
I live in Crestview FL and make my living as a landscaper and general all around handyman.
In Feb. '05, I inherited my father's pop up camper and liked it but the canvass is prone to getting mildewed. I'd been looking for a hard sided camper for a while and it clicked in my head, that I could get an Airstream, which I always dreamed of getting one as a young boy, seeing them on road trip vacations. After going through the ebay thing I wanted to buy one that I could see and touch and found out about one for sale in Penacola FL, 45 miles from here.
I bought it in April '06. It's a 1968
24' Tradewind. The shell doesn't have a single dent or scratch. The laquere is coming off in areas and it has a little corrosion aroung a few places along some seams but many people think I have since polished it since it is clean and has a good shine, not a mirrir finish or anything, but really good for original finish.
I have since joined WBCCI and have taken it to some local rallies at Mystic Prings Park that the local chapter owns. I really enjoy it.
I have done a lot of work to this camper and it still needs a lot more done to it but we're able to continue using it in the meanwhile. My wife laikes it so much that I don't even have to ask her about going to the next rally, she signs us up for the next one while we're still at the current one.
I look forward to meeting you all.
