new guys looking

I am so ready to find my airstream. We have been looking for a few months, we have a 28'Puma now, selling it. We have wanted the airstream for quite a while, and figure now or never. I am a vintage guy, i rebuild old cars and antique fans. We want an older one, pre 80 or so, I have looked at the sovergn. little too big, but the excella is great. Something under 30 ft, preferably with work already done to it,. There is nothing I cant repair or remodel, been doing it for 40 years, but with an old rv it would be nice to have some upgrades, good electrical, good ac and heat, .etc. I had a 2000 Fleetwood motor home, and was a member of their forum for the years we had it, I learned how to do a lot of rv stuff. Some I liked,some i did not. i dont want to gut one of these and start completely over, just help me find one that somebody has had for a while, just ready to sell to a new home. The Bounder i bought was from a member of their forum, he just got to old and ill to use it, He gave me a great deal on the coach, knowing i would take care of it. I passed on the deal just the same as he did for me , to another member of their group. I am looking forward to meeting some of you, and looking forward to having the silver dream.. My tow truck is already silver..Richard Collier

I think you are on the right track. The best deals are on older streams somebody else has done the work on. That is if they knew what they were doing.

Hey Richard, you're already ahead of the game with a silver truck!! Now all you need is the right Stream to go behind it.

Keep an eye out for the right one, gently used, with the floorplan/features you like. They are out there, sometimes ya gotta go a ways to get 'em. We traveled 2200 miles round trip to get ours. Totally worth it.

Good luck, keep us posted.

Look at as many as you can, so when the right one comes along you'll know it. It will be love at first sight.

Happy hunting.
