New-guy from Colorado

Howdy,

I just spent a few hours at the local Airstream dealership asking a bunch of pre-purchase questions about buying my first Airstream. I've had this dream of touring the US in an Airstream for several years, and now, maybe it's time to get serious and start planning. I'm considering taking a year... maybe more, and see as much of America as possible - I'm sure this was a typical dream for most of you Airstreamers out there in this forum, and I'm glad to have found this online community. Thanks all - I look forward to reading your posts.

Cheers,
- Michael

new from colorado too!

Did you go to Windish by any chance?
We think we found a used one in San Diego, but the new one's are beautiful.
We are planning on spending the summer on the road with my husband, a dog and an almost 3 year old. We might be crazy- I guess we'll find out soon enough!
Cheers!

Welcome to the Forums, michael. We're very glad to have you with us.

You'll find a whole bunch of like minded people here. We have an '05 Safari 25FB that we have spent 210 nights in in the last 20 months. We have have pulled her 30,000 miles, and have not tired of the adventure.

You're gonna love Airstreaming. As you prepare to purchase your fist Airstream, ask a whole bunch of questions here. You'll get honest answers.

Are you an experiences RVer, or new to this hole thing?

Brian

Welcome to the Forums, Michael.

A Year traveling the US with your new (soon to be) AS sounds awesome. I say if you CAN do it then DO IT!

Send us pictures from the road.

Welcome to the forums and the world of Airstreams!

So much to learn about... so many places to go... so little time! Here is a thread you might check out before you make that purchase! Maybe it will help you choose wisely! http://www.airforums.com/forums/f353...eam-22920.html

Good luck and let us know what you decide!

Welcome Michael,

excellent idea. i agree, if you can do it...DO IT. traveling the US. was my dream as well and still is. i just got my first Airstream two weeks ago and one day i hope to have her fixed up enough that she could go on long trips as well as cross country.

good luck finding your dream stream...it is out there waiting for you.

Welcome Michael!

Good luck in your search for an Airstream! The dealers to choose from, in this area, are Windish in Lakewood and Intermountain in Colorado Springs.

There are lots of things to consider, size, layout etc.....take your time and before you know it you will have just the right coach for your needs.

Thanks for your welcome note - much appreciated.

Hi Brian, I'm new to the idea of actually considering OWNING an Airstream, but the adventurous idea of traveling in one has been in the back of my mind for many years. I may finally be getting serious to turn my dreaming into reality. Thanks for your suggestions of asking lots of questions... very glad I found such a welcoming community in this forum.

Hello Kani and Jack. Yes, I plan to take MANY photos of my year-long jouney... and probably create a blog to share my adventure with anyone willing to listen.

Thanks for your warm welcome.
