well I'm not really new but I got a new baby

well I am officially a nut job, I have just added another trailer to my collection.
I have a question, I just discovered the registry section and I am trying to post my trailers but it will only allow me to put one in ( I got my new girl in)

It says I need to upgrade my account and that my registry space is full so I can't add more... how do I upgrade my registry space.

Is the purpose of the registry to know how many of the oldtimers are still out there?

Hello everyone,

We are a family of four looking for a simple and freer lifestyle. We decided to try a tackle the airstream lifestyle almost 6 months ago. Unfortunately we had no idea where to start and no funds but we are coming to a spot were we may be able to purchase a fixer-upper for 1700. Any advice of how to inspect, or what is totally necessary for a successful project.

I would suggest you start a new thread - perhaps title "AS fixer $1,700 good?"...or any old title to get attention to your new interest.

I have a 2007 Airstream Interstate with the kitchen/bath in the rear of the coach. I am trying to ask a question but not sure if this is the right place to start a new thread.
I wanted to know if anyone has upgraded their propane tank from a 20LB to a 30LB or 40LB?

I suppose it's possible. While the 2007 Interstate has a 23-pound ASME tank my 2012 has a 60-pound tank.

However, it will depend on the under-floor layout, and where the rest of the tanks are as to whether you've got room for a larger tank. I would suggest visiting an Airstream dealer that has an Interstate on the lot (or a rally with a newer-model Interstate in attendance), and then look underneath both vehicles to see the difference in tank locations. Then if you've got the room for it, contact your favorite Airstream dealer to see if you can order the larger ASME tank.

I agree with Protagonist... another option, if you have need for that much more capacity, is to have an import port where you could plug in additional supply. You could transport the tank in another location and install as needed.

help checking out a vintage trailer

I think I came across something on this site saying there may be people willing to help check out an airstream for a potential and ignorant buyer. I would be completely happy to pay for this service-I don't want to take advantage. Where do I find that section? I'm looking in MA. thanks in advance

Tips for first timers

Hello all I am new to the airstream community and am currently looking for my first! I believe I have found 'the one' however, my sister, who owns a 1989 Excella, told me from the pictures she looked at that she thinks there might be something wrong with the axle. I am curious as to how I would find this out if the seller has no clue themselves. And if there is axle damage, is it a complete deal breaker.

Thanks to all in advance.

Airstream Virgin, Mal
