Introduction

We have just joined the Airstream world with the purchase of a 2014 Sport 22FB. Took delivery on 1/17/2014, went camping the next day. So far, so good. My wife named it "Cannonball"; I named the last dog, so it was her turn.

Of course, this week I have been paranoid about the cold weather here in San Antonio. I did a "mini winterization", based on a post I found on the AirForum, and trust that will do the trick.

First big trip is planned for the end of March. Journey to Big Bend country, with the hope that we catch the cactus bloom.

Welcome!

I like the Sport 22s... like an old-school Airstream (small frontal area, simple/practical layout and systems.)

Be sure to take plenty of propane to Big Bend, nights in March are likely to be chilly out there!

SA's current weather (short, fairly light freezes) should let you get away with halfway winterizing. A little bit of water in the traps and such wouldn't likely cause a problem as long as you don't have much water in the pump and in fixture valves you'll be fine. If it's parked somewhere that you can keep a little space heater on low (both temperature and wattage) you'll probably keep everything above freezing in the first place.
