Hello! Just took delivery and camped in our 2014 25FB Flying Cloud. Been reading a lot of forum posts. Seems like people are very nice & knowledgable. Looking forward to many years with the "Silver Twinkie"
Congratulations on your "Silver Twinkie"! You will find that AS owners are very, very friendly and knowledgable! My husband and I have met and made the nicest friends! If you can, take in a rally, you will be surrounded by the finest folks around! Enjoy and safe travels! Beth

Smile to the new owners:

Congratulations to the new owners! You're gonna love it.

ps: so that when you post, people will know what trailer you have, why not modify your profile so that it appears there?

Have a look almost at the top, in the dark blue horizontal bar: there is a link to your "User CP" at the left side. If you don't see it, look at it on a PC.

Newbie here and plan on purchasing my AS this spring. As a Total newb I am wondering if there is a section for us noobs where we can get together and learn as we go. I have heard the term "Freewheelers" and wondered how to join? Any and all input will be appreciated.
Hope to be an Airstream owner Sooner than Later.

We just got her home! She is a 2008 Safari 23 ft, FB SE. She is our first trailer and we are so happy to finally have our dream Airstream! Of course, we got the call that she was ready to pick up right in the middle of having the exterior of our house painted. But we are so lucky to have the best neighbors in the world and they offered to let us park in their RV spot, out of the way of the painters. We will be looking for a place for our maiden voyage soon. We live in the Northern California foothills and it looks like most of the campgrounds in the mountains east of us, towards Lake Tahoe, are closed for the winter. So we'll probably be heading for the coast. Any suggestions of a good spot for first-time Airstream owners would be greatly appreciated! We're so excited to finally be part of the Airstream family!

I would recommend staying at a full hookup campsite first so you can test out the holding tanks capacity vs your water usage. Fill up the water tank and use the water pump. That way if you fill up your holding tanks before you leave you can then dump them and if you use all your water you can refill your water tank and make changes to your usage patterns. Once you get an idea then you can camp where there are no hookups or where there is just electricity. Also you can test out the black water flush system at a full hook up site and then dump.

Rivet Watch the Gauges

Welcome Gail! Congrats, get ready for the many new adventures you'll have!!
While you are getting acquainted with your ''new to you'' A/S, it wouldn't hurt to keep an eye on the gauges to make sure they are working properly. I'd guess the new tank sensors are different now but with the older ones, toilet tissue could get hung up on the sensor, rendering it useless after a while. We discovered that first hand on our first rally about 12 yrs ago. The toilet wouldn't flush and we didn't know why. So much for watching gauges, it seems the tank was FULL TO THE BRIM. No harm, just the pain of hitching up again and heading to the dump station. Hint: do use RV tissue as it's designed to dissolve/break down in the tank along with the deodorizing blue stuff. Word of the day is frugal, as in "don't put any more in the waste tanks than you have to when you have no sewer hook-up." Our 1975 T.Wind, "Cupcake", will be 40 y/o in Feb.

Enjoy ~ S

We live in Sacramento, for the maiden voyage, I would recommend Collins lake near Yuba city, full hook up, except sewer,Jackson rancheria in Jackson, full hookups, or olema park near Novato. Full hook up except sewer. Our favorite is halfmoon bay, state beach they are now just installing , full hookups. Check on line. Have fun

Welcome. A great place to interact with Airstreamers and gain hands on knowledge is at a rally. You might check the rally page here on the forums, and also reach out to the local WBCCI unit for activities. Typically lots of different trailers, lengths, models, years. Depending on the climate, many groups are in winter hibernation right now.

This forum is loaded with many knowledgeable folks, eager to help. Just reach out. And enjoy yourself.

Hello, we are considering purchasing new 25' International - we're first time RVers and this is a part of my retirement plans. We are looking at Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 as towing vehicle. Are we headed down the right path?
