Smile Professional Airstream Lurker

Tomorrow, at precisely 2pm, we will be the very proud, very weary owners of a 2017 22' Sport: the larger, longer, leaner Bambi (LLLB)

Why weary? My wife and I have been "lurking"on the air forums for about 4 long years. (Does that break any records?) I've also probably read almost every single post about late model AS's on the forum. I haven't posted or asked any questions because we didn't yet OWN an AS, or had yet to decide on a specific model or year. During that time, we've owned other new and used SOB's and traveled about 18,000 miles camping and gone through 4 new TV's. We've looked at almost every model of new AS's available, along with many older models, some stripped and some in "original" condition. We put a deposit on a 2014 28' FC and then for various reasons couldn't come to an agreement on price and/or availability from that particular dealer. YES, we are weary, but REALLY glad to have finally made a decision on an AS!! We now DO know what we want, but it took many months, miles and campgrounds to sift through all that.
I have a LONG list of modifications and changes to make to the LB (Large Bambi) and will probably began ripping it (sorry-HIM) apart as soon as he gets settled in front of the shop tomorrow. (The threat of a warranty doesn't scare me. ) I will post as much as possible, with juicy photos of course.
Looking forward to this next adventure with gusto and excitement. And a BIG thanks to ANY and ALL who ever posted to the forums! I have learned from every snarky, detailed or informative one and am not one bit ashamed to have wasted so much time lurking!

I'll post the list when I get the chance. Not sure what thread to post under- 2005 and newer Bambi's?

Congrats... and empathy for falling under the spell....

After 4 years on this forum, once you camp a week or so, you will have a nice list of 'improvements'...

Meet Bertolini; his friends call him Bertie. Pulled by his impeccable, truly awesome man-servant; Jeeves. Jeeves, with an incredible IQ, stamina and wit, is in a class all his own. 😋
