Towing Serenity in Virginia

Greetings all, from the Commonwealth of Virginia!

I've been scouring these Forums for the past few months while my husband and I have been scouring the dealerships for our new Airstream. I've learned so much from all the experiences posted here, thanks to all of you who take the time to post!

The newest member of our family is a lovely Serenity, 27FB. We pick her up at Colonial on the 8th of August - I'm alternately crazy excited and then super freaked out. Our original plan was an ever so slightly used 25FB, but after spending hours ducking in and out of two 25's, two 27's and a 28, we knew we had to have the 27.

So hello there, I can't wait to get this Airstream life going, glad ya'll will be along for the ride!

I bought a new 27FB International last fall, and have been full timing until a few weeks ago. We found it was absolutely perfect for two adults and two cats. It has everything we need, and nothing we don't.
Enjoy!!

Thanks for the welcome! She came home this past weekend, and it hurt to take her to storage until our first trip at the end of this month. Does leaving her alone ever get better? On the upside, she has a sister Serenity across the lot, so I know she's in a safe spot.

Safe travels!

Really nice Airstream. We admired the 27's as well but the rear living area wouldn't work for us, many love it for their own reasons. I guess the 28' is the front living room version of the 27, even though it is an inch shorter.

Nonetheless they are all wonderful travelers and something to be proud of. Take some time to read up on regular corrosion prevention and leak inspection methods here on the forum, as the Airstream maintenance section of the manual says little about it. Take care of it and it'll last a lifetime and look good all the way.

Doug,
Thanks for the heads up on the maintenance not covered in that oh so thorough manual (read New England sarcasm here). I've ponied up some pesos for 303 and grease so far, will continue to haunt the forums for best washing and waxing tips and what to use when we do. Some of out trips will be out to the Outer Banks, and I'm sure I will want to wash her as soon as we hit desalinated air. I don't want to say the 'f' word….filiform…and will be on a sharp lookout for anything even vaguely resembling it.
