Just ordered my AIRSTREAM!

Just placed my order for a new build 2017 25FB International Serenity!

Should be built in Feb for a March delivery. This finishes about 1.5 years of research and RV shows and dealership visits.

Had slide in truck campers for 25 years and a high wall pop up for two. This will be the the retirement trailer when I hit 65 in 7 years!

Hoping to get to the factory while it's being built!

Glad the proverbial cord has now been pulled.

Now, about that Christmas wish list...

CONGRATULATIONS! I remember our order date well - took possession of our 2016 Classic in early March. Still have lots to learn - this site, and some real road experience will really get you focused on what's important and what's not. Have fun. See you down the road.

AWCHIEF nailed it, welcome to the madness! Over my life I've had 3 motor homes & 2 trailers before the Airstream, now in my 70's I often wonder why I dident buy the Airstream 1st and save myself endless agrivation. You'll love your 25' as we do, congrats!

Congratulations!

Our order for a new Serenity 25RB with Salsa Ultra leather went in today too (from Can-Am)! Maybe we'll see you at JC as we are planning a trip to see it built.

I don't want to be negative, but, I'm a realist ... and I need to share some bad news with you. This isn't good news, either. Nothing we say can make it easier or better. It just sucks ... as you will soon understand. You're about to experience the longest wait you've ever experienced. Time will all but S T O P ! No, really. It will completely stop. Sure the clock itself will move ... but ... every day from here until delivery will seem like an eternity...

The only good news is knowing that after the eternity has passed, you'll meet your shiny sweetheart... you'all love her and she'll love you back if you're good to her...

In all seriousness, the wait sucks, but the anticipation and planning is awesome. Again, congrats!

Congratulations, sounds familiar as we researched, shopped, and waited for a couple of years before the time was right. The process is so much fun, we wish you much enjoyment.

I was there for the building of our 2014 Classic in January of 2014. I caught the failure of the dealership to ensure the approved and paid for change order was in the shop work order. So the interior had to come out to take out the wrong stock flooring and put in the desired stock flooring from a different trim line.

One is allowed to be inside the factory just during the tours, but you can go inside yours and take photos. If you get there before the inside skin goes on and take lots of photos, you will have a record of where the wires are run, where the studs (ribs) and horizontal stiffeners are located and where the plumbing runs are located.

With the high production levels now, it will not takeover long for the trailer to come down the line.
