Just purchased 2016 Serenity 27fb. My father was a sheet metal tech and he instilled an understanding of the trade in me. Itís not quite aircraft quality but after owning six different types of Box trailers and motor homes which were all basically junk, I am pleased to own something of this quality. This site has been invaluable in learning about the differences in the various models and specific features and options available and I look forward to my upcoming travels and experiences with my wife. Thanks to all that have taken the time to answer questions and provide information on this unique trailer. Named it Moonshine.

Great name and Welcome. I am a new member to the forum and like you I have used the forum extensively prior to signing up. It is a great community and we all seem to love the Airstream. My wife and I are currently in Oregon in our new Airstream and loving it. It is such a pleasure to be in.

Congratulations on you new Airstream. I am sure you will enjoy it!!!

All the best....

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Greetings from Colorado: Welcome to the Airstream community. I find your comment about sheet metal construction interesting. There was a thread here some years ago where a hobbyist was restoring an old Airstream. This person was a sheet metal craftsman from Europe. He was quite complementary of the construction of his old Airstream. It's fun for me to work on these old trailers, however I struggle with installing a new belly pan. A sheet metal craftsman I ain't.

The aluminum body and semi monocoque construction helps the Airstream last a long time. Here is a photo of my 1975 Overlander 27', 43 years old and still going strong. It is a mid twin beds and a rear bath layout. I'm renovating it, but not restoring it. It is a nice sized family Airstream.

Post a photo when you get a chance.
