Hello All: Julie here. So glad to find this forum! My boyfriend, Tom, and I are newbies. As I type, he is headed to pick up our new (to us) 2016 Flying Cloud 25! We are so excited! We are both retired and looking forward to seeing the USA via its blue highways. We will be traveling with our two Labradoodle puppies, Rocket and Reggie.

I have a really dumb question: how do I search the forums for answers to my questions?

Looking forward to meeting you on the forums and in our wanderings!

Hello and welcome! The pooches in your avatar are adorable! You're gonna love this!!! 😀

My favorite way of searching is to go to Google and start my search with the word Airforums - so say, Airforums pets - and you get this:

https://www.google.com/search?q=airf...iw=375&bih=628

You say new to you 2016 - must have VERY low mileage?!?! Good luck and happy camping!!!

Welcome to the delightful madness.

One good way to search Airforums is to use your favorite web browser, Google, Firefox etc and type in (without parentheses)

"AirForums best flooring for Airstream"

"AirForums best cute coffee pot for Airstream"

"AirForums how to fix the table in our 26U Airstream"

Etc etc. Enjoy

Hello from Colorado. We've been Airstream traveling for about 10 years now, but only a couple of trips a year. The family has had this 86 Limited since it was new 30 years ago. I also purchased a very used 66 Trade Wind that I have been slowly renovating. Airstreams are much more than campers.

We are traveling now and are camped in Steamboat Springs, CO. Lovely city. Unusual, but there are 4 Airstreams in the campground tonight. Two are full time folks, and two others are travelers like us. Airstreamers find it perfectly acceptable to knock on the door and say hello. And you might notice other oncoming Airstreamers flashing headlights at you while on the highway. You'll want to say hi back to them.

I think you will find your new Airstream a great calling card to the Airstream community.

Welcome to the "club".

David

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

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

The best way to search AirForums is to use Google and type airforums along with what you are trying to find.

Congratulations on your new baby. May you have safe travels and many great Airstream Adventures with her.

Brian

Thanks

Wow, thanks so much for the kind welcome and helpful hints! Already finding my way through the threads. We're "knock on the door" kind of people so I know this is going to be one awesome adventure. Julie

I never have much luck with the forum's search function.

It's much easier, and QUICKER, to do a Google search with the word "Airforums" in the search

Congratulation on the Airstream! It's great to have more Airstreamers in the neighborhood.

Yes, that's a lucky spot for us in the Arapahoe Recreational Area just north of Granby, CO. It's a first come, first serve campground with only 4 spots long enough for our Limited. Since the season is almost over, we got a spot.

But the best is still further north into Rocky Mountain National Park. Trail Ridge Road is spectacular! Our trailer is too long for spots inside the park. Julie's new 25 footer is just right.

We took the beagle elk hunting. She dreams of grabbing one by the ankle and bringing it down. Small beagle, big ego. That bull elk has quite a harem put together. I'll bet his "honey do" list is incredible.

Julie and family are going to have great Airstream travel adventures.

David
