I'm new here

Hello all.
I am new here.
We don't have an Airstream yet but.....
I have wanted one since I was a little girl growing up in Santa Monica, Ca. There were a few that would drive through our town.
I thought they were the most beautful trailers I had ever seen, still do! We are hoping to find a 19' Bambi. That seems like the best size for us, as I am the only one who drives. But I am open to ideas, as I have never owned a trailer before.

Not to fear there is much knowledge here!
I too am just purchasing my first Airstream. It arrived at the dealer today. I pick it up Wednesday.

I have learned much by reading and posting in the past month or so.

Welcome! I just got my 1972 Tradewind a few weeks ago. I love it and can't wait to take her out on a road trip. You'll find all sorts of helpful people here.

You missed your chance for a 19' bambi in New York state in January. I found it on the RV Trader Online, and traveled 5-1/2 thousand miles about a month ago to bring it home!

The photos are still on the RV Trader website! http://www.rvtraderonline.com/dealer...stTimeout=9999

Maybe you'll find yours closer to home, aflutterbi, best of luck!

Interested in a 22 CCD?

I've got a 2005 22ft CCD for sale right now. Only reason I'm selling is I've bought a 2006 25ft Safari Front Bed, Special Edition. I full time and the 22 was just a tad small. The real advantage to the 22 vs 19 is that there is a desk (I already miss that!) and the door to the bathroom in the 19' is really, really narrow... it opens into the bed, and if you're a rotund person such as I, that squeeze could really endanger your partner's olfactory senses if you're in a hurry and he (or she) is sleeping on the bed! The 22 actually has one of the bigger kitchen counters of all the models. Check the www.airstream.com for layout of both units. I really didn't appreciate how much difference 2 feet could make 'til I saw both units on the line at the Airstream factory. The 22 can be towed by a 1/2 ton pickup truck.

Welcome, aflutterbi. What you have found here is a bunch of other folks who just couldn't stand to get any other kind. Strength or vice - who knows for sure?

aflutterbi my advice is take it slow your babie will come along.i love my babies and they were worth the wait. i think the right size is about a 23 ft or 25 foot. my sister thout they were to big till she bought a 19 ft prowler and then saw my 23 safari. it pulled better and was a lot nicer. she sold her prowler quick! she also always wanted an AS . now she pulls a 25 foot tradewind and is very happy. an AS pulls so nice that the size doesnt seem to matter. just look around and the right one will come around. ps welcome
