Hi I'm new to the family and we just purchased a 94 Safari 25'. Seems to have had good care and maintenance but what should I look for or expect as far as maintenance at this point?

I would think wheel bearings, brakes, tires would be my first places to look. Next would be the fridge vent flu to make sure it's clean and clear of any obstructions and basically a visual of the exterior and interior to make sure no lost rivets, sagging bellypans, etc. It's not an old coach, so I'd think for the most part, if it was cared for, it should be pretty good, but those are the areas I'd look at if I was looking at a used RV.

I agree with Silvertwinkie, and welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum. For some of us your "new" coach is really "new". Lots lof us here are dealing with the vintage Airstreams. Perhaps you too will fall in love with these trailers and consider getting something with a little more age on it to rennovate. Whatever you choose, you will have fun with an Airstream. You made a good choice.

Thanks for the suggestions and I already think the older one's are great but I'm not good at the repairs and well my husband can cause more damage trying to repair something and then it really gets expensive believe me we've been there with home repairs. So I have my newer AS and I will just envy & appreciate your older ones.

Welcome to the forums. I am certain you will find something to fix or change on your new Airstream soon enough, that's the beauty of these wonderful machines.

Ahh... A Tim Allen with an Airstream.
