Greetings from a fellow Texan Airstreamer

Good luck in your search. The next Texas rally will be in Bourne Dec. 11-13th. Could be a chance to meet up with some of us local streamers. I bought a 72 Tradewind 25' last February. I looked all over Texas but wound up traveling to Orlando on a 1000 mile trek to get her. It's a great sized trailer and easy to pull. My 22.5' Hunter Sailboat still sits at my office awaiting repairs after Rita. That's another story, miss sailing but the Airstream has been a blast.
Camping World on i10 just west of Katy has several new Airstreams on the lot. Saw a 25' FC today there. Not too far from Sugarland especially if you take Grand Parkwat across to I10.

Check out the Bourne rally if you can, on the portal page there is a listing of the rallies. I'm in West Houston if you need some help from a local.

RichHog - Thanks. Several folks have mentioned the Bourne Rally in December. Since I now have a Safari 25FB, the wife and I are pouring over the catalogues to get her "commissioned".

We visited with the Camping World folks in Katy a couple of weeks ago and looked at what they had in both AS and others. On my way south from Denver w/ the 07' Safari, i stopped at the CW in Ft. Worth and they had good things to say about the Katy CW folks as well and unlike the FW store is 100% owned by CW. The FW store is colocated with McClains RV who does all the sales.

Seems that "RVing" is a bit like "yachting" in that there is always something to spend money on.... I left Ft. Worth quite a bit lighter than I had hoped after picking up a Reese Straight-line.

Very Happy to be back on the Gulf Coast! Boy was it cold in Denver!!!

Those of us who have the vintage coaches are always looking for improvements. As I finish off one part of my list then I just move down to a new part. Though my trailer is a Land Yacht, buying parts for it is nothing like parts for a sailboat, which is why my Hunter is still on jack stands behind my office. Hope to see you at Bourne.
