Congratulations. You might want to get a copy of the "Newbies Guide to Airstreaming".

It is rare to find such a well cared for vintage trailer. Congratulations.

Well done Montana

I am searching for the trailer that "follows me home." The day I can post pics of the, so far phantom trailer, will be a happy day. Congratulations on such a nice find.

IS there a "Newbies Guide..."? I thought this forum was pretty good as a guide! And, Lisa, we'd already heard about that rally, as well as the Barn Dance (I think that's it) get-together north of Waterton - Cardston, AB in August and may get to that. Unfortunately, I still do a little work now and then and will be in Winnepeg the last week of August and first week of September - so we'd enjoy Ft. Benton but will likely miss that one this time. But we have done "hands across the border" with Rotary many times and know that the folks in our part of the world can have a good time - so will for sure do that in the future.

We are pretty excited. SWMBO admitted - confessed maybe is a better word - that during the sermon this morning she said her mind wandered to "...where to put things in the Airstream." Is this divine inspiration?

As Tinman said, you never know what is right around the corner. We literally called an hour after the PO posted on the ad on Airforums Classifieds, and after a couple hours looking it over, were pretty sure if was the one, but had another to go look at the next day across the state. But after that, we realized we could look long and hard and not find something as good, so committed!

Russ, I've read that whole thread of Mr. Hi Ho Ag's Overlander that "followed him home." There is much to be learned in those 30-40 pages! We have to get some things done over the next two weeks but will work in a test drive and overnight locally (that's pretty easy in Montana!) then a four-day shake-down up to Glacier at the end of the month, and even may stretch that into the 4th!

For other folks still looking, I can only say that there are so many options out there - we looked at really old to pretty new - and the folks on this forum are so helpful, that we really appreciate the advice of all. Sincerely, to one and all: thank you.

Just visiting the neighbors!

(This Bambi and forum member are less than a hundred yards away, one street over. Nice to have someone who's been there to "check your bolts....")
