We did it!

I guess you have to start somewhere and so here we are. Proud new parents of a vintage 1965 Globetrotter. This has turned out to be a very exciting purchase for us and getting to this point has adventure. We have been looking for a while (a long while) and it seemed every time we found a trailer it was SOLD! I'm sure anyone else out there who has been in the market for a used airstream has heard or read that four letter word all too often. Finally, we can stop looking and enjoy. Luck was on our side the day we found our airstream and we knew we would have to move fast. To our surprise it was not sold and 2 seconds later it us! Anticipation for summer to arrive will be long but worth the wait. We are Canadians and have short summer's but still enjoy all types of outdoor adventures. Look for pics of our new "baby" and I know there will be many questions to follow.

P.S. May have initially posted in the wrong forum...oops! I will use the excuse as being a new user for today.

Congratulations on your new acquisition. Now the real fun begins, or rather never ends. Probably the best addition I have made to my GT (aside from a new axle) has been Fantastic Vents. Probably overkill to have two in a 20ft trailer, but I like it!

Congratulations! 65 was a very good year! Like you we looked and then stumbled on ours in a barn all covered with pigeon stuff. We love it and will have it on the road in the spring. Many happy camps to you.....Tim

Thanks! I just know those campfire stories have to be filled with how people came to own an airstream. All the best in your travels!
