Newbies to both forum and trailering

Hi all - DH had wanted an airstream for a while - so we finally found one we could afford. So we will be picking up our 78 Argosy 28' this weekend. Our tow vehicle is a 97 chevy suburban that we are having a new connector put on along with electric brake switch. Fortunately, it has the transmission cooler already. We are going to be needing a vent cover (the one on the bathroom is gone). And the refrigerator is non functional. We figure we will leave that as is for now and put in a dorm size AC one until we can get a new one. Thanks and we look foward to learning alot.

Argosys are really fun (but... I might be partial). Be sure to check out the Argosy subforum - there is great info there about Argosy specific issues.
