New owner 1991 excella 25

Hi All

First time Airstream owner here.

I have been lurking on this board, not so much lurking as learning.

I have been searching and educating myself about Airstreams since the first of the year.

Traveled hundreds of miles to check out trailers 1970's vintage.

I was packing to go look at one in Baltimore, (900 miles one way), when I checked the Phoenix AZ CL ads and this one poped up. 1991 Airstream Excella 25 rear twin.

It has been in inland California its whole life. It was owned by a former pilot who keep very good maintenance records and he wanted everything to work. Well it does, no seriously. I am so glad I did not buy one where the refrigerator needed work. The amount charged to fix those things is ridiculous. Have the receipts to prove it.

And yes, it needs axles. Everything I looked at needed them, and this 1991 model does also.

Does traveling 2100 miles one way to buy the trailer I wanted, get me any credit or committed?

That sounds like a great find. Miles don't matter, it it's good and you are willing to go the distance.

Will you or someone actually physically look at it prior to your travel?

No, I did not have anyone look at it. It was a leap of faith on my part. Lucky for me it was as described. I left Wisconsin, last Tuesday and had it home on Sunday. Now the learning really begins.

Well congratulations on your find.

Read, read and read as chances are everything you need to do somebody here on the forums has already had success with.

Searching for advice in the forum is not the easiest but with a well worded question you get lots of informative and friendly replies. Lots of times they will link the prior threads with answers .

You can start your own progress thread and document as you go. If you are a subscribing member you can add endless photos for somebody else's success in the future.

Happy Camping

Toporanger, Welcome to Airforums. Wish you many trips and fun with your Excella. A friend of mine whom I met on the forum found a 1992 Excella, rear twins in PA. Drove from here, Venice, Fl to do the deed. He loves it as well as most of us on the Forums.
