New Member with questions........

Greetings Fellow Airstreamers!

My wife and I purchased our new Airstream last month and are all ready enjoying our new purchase and promise of adventure.
We've never owned an R.V. but have camped most of our lives in a tent, time to move on up! I've been riding and camping on motorcycles since I was young (BMW) and still love to ride but I'm excited about this new form of camping. Real bed, t.v., wine cooler and shower with many more amenities.
We live in Montana but love to travel, we purchased a 2014 Flying Cloud 23' and are just trying to get acquainted with all the bells and whistles. We live on a large ranch just north of Yellowstone Park so our first night out was in our driveway, it was a blast. A glass of fine wine while watching the sun set and then putting a "chick flick" on the dvd for my wife while I fell asleep.......
I'm a semi-retired engineer so I like to over think over analyze, study everything. I've crawled underneath, through and all over our new A/S and have lots of questions. But for now, it's Cheers to the future and the adventures that lie ahead!

Welcome aboard. Traveling in the our Airstream with the comforts of home has made our trips much longer and enjoyable. Never in a hurry to get home. You'll both love it.

Welcome and congrats on your choice. There will be an informal rally near Kalispell May 9-12 ... PM if you want more info. It would be a great place to meet some folks and get answers and suggestions for your new AS. Bring the BMW along, too.
