We're going Airstream Crazy.

Hi, I'm Torie and my husband is Larry. We have always wanted to own an Airstream, we found a really nice 31' 1983 Soverign last September. We plan to do redecorating to make it ours. We took our lst big trip from Edgewood, TX (home) to Phoenix, AZ to see the Texas Ranger Baseball team at springtraining. It was a blast! Well we happened to see a 1967 24' International for sell a few miles from us, it is so cool we just couldn't pass it up. So now we have 2 Airstreams and our kids think we have really gone crazy,but our little granddaughters think its great to have two play houses. We plan to restore the International to its former 1960's glory...love the aqua and lime green color scheme of the bathroom and galley. We have had fun reading all the great info on the forums. Thanks for all the advice and experience, hope to add our own experience and even photos of our "Work in Progress"

Hi and welcome aboard!

You're in the right place to get all the info you may want.

First things first. Post some pics of your Airstreams. We're hooked just like you and want to see every Airstream we can.

Hey, when the bug bites you, it really does a number on you!
Congrats on both of your trailers. Yes, photos are in order.
Nice to have you here on the forum.

Well, you sound just as bad as Bob and myself. We started with the 24ft Argosy, and then "found" a 31ft Sovereign. My relatives and friends don't quite know what to think of us with our Airstream collection. Isn't it fun? We'd like to see what you've found before you start working on them and then throughout the process. Welcome to the group.

congrats

Mystorie, welcome and congrats on your 2 finds. Have fun. We are near you in Chandler,TX. Would love for you to drop by at Canton Trade Days when you can. We've found 1 Argossy,3 Safaris (one is ours), snd an International that are regulars there. This coming show will be our first trip with our 1971. We set up on the corner of row 50 and 96, with the funky yard art sculptures. Do drop by.

new finds

Artstream, thanks to you and others we have underbelly neons now. Not quite as visual as yours though. You are close now. Doing a show with your art? Think about the Canton show. Vendors can come the 28th of this month. Give 'em a call if you can. It's fun.

Thanks ya'll for the warm welcome!
Pansy,
This internet stuff really "shrinks" the world. Our youngest son lives in Chandler so we are there quite often. Also have set up at lst monday many times in the past 13 years a great place to have fun...plenty of RV opportunities ...you should check out the new RV and Cabin resort on Hwy 19 it is beautiful , great place for a rally! Will get some fotos of our "babies" out soon as l figure out how to get the pics from my camera to the forum!

You guys will have to come by. We're just N. of Chandler off 279 heading towards Edom. Email when you're down and I'll send you our phone no to guide you in. Will check out the RV spot off 19 also. It would be great to get to know a local Streamer.
Charlie
