Then it is fit to travel and decorate to suit.

We have decided on an AS in Alabama. We will get everything checked before all the cosmetic stuff but truly like the PO. He is helping us in so many ways. He stills has an AS and has had many. Just a great guy.

BadKat and that 28' Airstream

It has been a while but just wanted to update you guys..love the forum. I have bought a 1999 28' Excella with twin beds. Moved in it fulltime Feb 1. We went from not knowing where the power cord was to figuring out so much more. We have a Hensley Hitch and are surviving that ordeal. The previous owner was so wonderful..showed us everything and even had us drive and park in an SKP. We are in N.O. actually Northshore in Fairview. We will camp at Chicot for a couple of days to go to Fred's Lounge Saturday morning for once a week cajun music. Then off we go heading north. We have a website www.lifeonthebluehighways.com. Already had a rodent experience. Country grocer checker said put peppermint oil on a cotton ball and they leave. Done! They are gone. Who knew...thanks and I am loving my trailer. No more a tent camper.

Two years later and still full-timing and the forums have saved us more than once. The AS 28' was the right choice and twin beds. Yes we had a HUGE learning curve. You freak then move on..maybe part of the fun. Hang in there with us. We need you forums.

Thanks guys, BadKat
