Smile We've Got an Airstream!

Picking up our 2014 23FB Flying Cloud tomorrow. So excited about finally having our very own Airstream! I'm retired, husband retiring in a month. We're going to enjoy fly fishing and field trialing with our two dogs in Cloud luxury. We've loved our 1981 Trillium 5500 (fiberglass) for 10 years but it's just too small and we're always fixing things! Husband's grandparents had an Airstream a long, long time ago and he's wanted one ever since. I've been lurking on Air Forums for a time... now it's time to join in the conversation!

Thanks so much everyone! Got home after dark and had to spend an hour just sitting and soaking in the whole thing. First time we've been alone in her for any length of time.... salesmen, the final operations tour, hook-up, driving, worrying something might happen on the way (we drove 5 hours out and back today to pick her up!). Such a feeling of relief and happy calm just to have her to ourselves. Pictures soon....
