Exclamation Long time reader ,first time owner PLEASE READ

Hello All,

After 2 years of searching I finally found a trailer that I can call my own. Just yesterday I had my 1971 22' Trade Wind Land Yacht delivered to my house by the out of state seller that I had puchased it from.

At 21 years of age, us young guns can get quite ....... well how should i put this????? IMPATIENT! When it comes to getting what we want and we often settle for the first thing we can get our hands on, resulting in a poor decision and poor use of money.

I am proud to say that because of everyone here I feel that I had the general knowledge of what to look for when I started my search for an AS. I cant thank you enough and look forward to sharing the process of the rebuild with you, as I know you will welcome me with open minds and honest opinions just like you have done with others in the past.

Again , Thank You!!!!

Spencer from Mid-Michigan

Congrats! Post some pictures so we can see just how pretty she is. What is your tow vehicle? Good luck and don't hesitate to ask any questions- someone will know the answer. Happy streaming!

Howdy, and welcome (although you imply that you have been lurking here for a while).

Speaking of impatient, where are the pics of your new purchase!?!? We like pictures. If you want to read a how-to, please look at this thread: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...eds-31829.html

There is lots of help too.

Good luck and have fun. See you on the road!

Grats Spencer! I hear you on the impatient part, but it's just an awesome feeling when you finally get things rolling. I'll be watching your progress for sure.

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the family! I know what you mean about impatience! We bought our 70 Overlander on E Bay (and YES it was a positive experience) and waited 6 to 8 weeks for spring to come and make the journey to South Bend, In to pick her up. It's worth the wait!
