Hey ther Airsteam friends.

My wife and I have just returned from our last camping trip in our renovated 1974 Avenger that is now for sale. Two days before our trip I was able to bring home a 1970 23 foot Safari. We have looked at Airstreams for several years - after seeing one owned by friends at a campground some years back and set our sights on getting one. My son had a 31 footer but that was more than I wanted to tow for the amount of camping we do.

I have been reading the forums for awhile and they have been very helpful and I am learning much.

Some plans at this point are a rear floor repair (yup found that thread already) checking out the safety of the frame - axel and brakes etc, The previous owner has done some nice interiour work - but I hope they checked the floor etc before beginning. There is some rot in one corner under the batery and the power converter.

and unfortunately they took out the rear bed - so something else will have to be built for that as well.

So the adventure begins.

I am looking for some kind of owners manual etc to help with some basic undersandings of the airstream. I suspect it does not have a greywater tank. only a black water tank but that is yet to be discovered.

I have already appreciated the attitude that veteran aristreamers have given to us Newbies - a nice change from forums on other topics.

I am sure I will be here regualrly

See ya at the campground
