New South Texas Airstreamer

Just wanted to say hi. Found what I thought was a great deal on a 75 Ambassador so I bought it sight unseen from a guy in KS. Can't wait to go get it on the 22nd. It is now sitting at my father-in-laws and he thinks its in pretty good shape. He has already had someone offer him 5k and I only paid $1500 so I guess it was a fair deal. Love the site and all the helpful people. Will post pics of the rebuild. Trent ps: haven't figured out the whole pic upload yet or I would share a pic.

Welcome! You'll certainly find the information you might need to tackle any problem with fixing up the Ambassador on here. It's made life much easier for me as a relative novice to have read about every task I need to tackle beforehand, and learn from the experiences of other Airstream junkies.

Welcome! Where in KS did you find your AS? Im in Olathe just outside KC. As far as the pictures its pretty easy. On the computer go to quick reply and you will see a button for go advanced click it and you will see a paper clip on the top middle, click it and you can browse your computer for the pic to upload. If you have an IPhone you can just click attachments. We cant wait to see her.

Have a safe trip and if your in the area and need help, let me know.

Congrats on your purchase and may you have many hours of fun! One minor concern. Down here in Corpus, we consider San Antonio North Texas...

Thanks for all the helpful offers, I sure I will need them.

Blmitch5: it's in Wichita, not really looking forward to that drive. On a good note, I did but brand new tires on it so hopefully it will be a smooth trip.

Casa3805: it's still plenty warm up here in "North Texas". Do you know any reasonable priced parks that are fairly nice to keep my AS at monthly in Port A? Main reason for buying is so my wife and I could get back to enjoying water activities, preferably the lake, but until we get a boat again it will be the ocean. We have a four and 16 month old kid so boat will have to wait one more year. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.

Greetings,

Our last trailer was a 1975 Ambassador with the center bath. We are on the N.E. side of town. Lots of streamers here in southern Texas.

Well there you go. I guess it's a mater of prospective, being in Brownsville, I consider CC north Texas. It's a nice place to cool off (yah right).

If SA is North Texas, then DFW is south Canada... and it was 103 in South Canada today.

re: Leaving the trailer in Port Aransas... maybe in the winter, but during hurricane season you might not have time to get to it to save it.

Sorry, since we live right here I have never really checked out prices. I do know there are a few very nice parks in Port A. But we were down there the other day and found a nice restaurant. Menu below. That may help a little.
