New Streamers

Just got our very first airstream and our very first camping trailer. No more tent camping. "Spud" is a 2005 Safari 25' LS. Our maiden outing will be to the Great Sand Dunes here in Colorado. Can't wait to get away from it all! Have been checking out forums to research: the best locks, how to supply and store items in the kitchen, the grey water/black water stuff, etc, etc.

Did get a great new coupler lock with an alarm. It is made by Xena. Will post on a different forum.

Welcome WJK. I'm sure you will enjoy "Spud".
You can find tons of info just by using the search on this forum. I wore it out after we bought ours!

I've also just bought a 05, 25' Safari:
Checked out the name registry today and realized the name I was going to use was taken!
So NEW Name is Tinbad "the trailer". Thought it fit my profession as Sea Captain.
So Tinbad's in the shop getting a safety tune up as it was a bit of an estate sale and no one to show me how everything worked (un fortunately some things like the furnace don't they found). But otherwise like new as rarely used.
I'm positive you are as tickled as I am and share your enthusiasm.
Here's a couple pics.....the "members" here really like pictures as do I.
Smooth sailing

Welcome to the forums and congrats on the "new" purchase.....have fun, it's been years and years since I've been to the sand dunes (used to go every summer when I was younger, and climb up the big 800' dune).

Congrats and welcome to the forums! Pictures of the trailer and any pictures while on trips is the quickest way to make other forum members envious!
