New Member-Good Day Everyone

Picking up our new (2005) AS this weekend. I appreciate all the information provided in this forum. The looking and buying process was made quite easy, thanks to this site. I'm sure I'll have many questions in the coming weeks, so get ready. Just wanted to make an intro, and test drive the site.

Thanks for the kind welcome

I'll post some pictures asap. Loved the photo work guys. I shoot with Nik D200 & D70. Gave up on film some time ago. Anyway, enjoyed the pictures.

Rick

welcome rbkhale.....

it's always great to read that someone's buying process was helped by the forums.....
maybe you could elaborate some....
what was helpful and why?

and when the questions start to pop.......fire away......
usually i search the topic or specific questions first......
always seems that i find a thread with basically the same question,
and when i don't searching at least helps me think out my questions better.


lets see some pics!

cheers

Welcome to the Forums

Hi Rick,

I see you are from Dublin. Well I'd like to welcome you to the forums and invite you to come to our next NorCal Forum Rally. We are having our spring rally this weekend if you can make it. It may be too hard to get the PDI done and still join us but consider it if you can. Are you buying from the new Walnut Creek dealer? or Toscanos? Anyway hope to see you at the fall rally for sure. We have some good times at the rallies. And the new models always get the attention. Just keep an eye out for NorCal rallies on the rally page. Enjoy your new trailer this weekend!

What did I learn from the forum?

2Air, The knowledge gained from this forum is endless. For starters, I made sure I bought the AS I wanted. I looked at 19, 20, 22 & 23 footers and decided to go with the 25. I liked all of them, and each one has it's niche. Over and over I kept reading posts from members trading up. True Market Value. It took some time, but I figured out what it was going to cost us to buy an AS. Find a dealer you feel comfortable with. Plan on fixin things.

Big Dee, Thanks for the invite. It's a little late in the game for me to plan for this weekend. Looking forward to seeing you down the road. Went with Toscano's.
