Bob, Thanks so much but I didn't read your message until too late. I was busy buying my tow vehicle and Airstream all in the same week.

I have had a '64 19' Globetrotter and an '88 25' Excella so I am not a complete newby. Would you advise me to fly to the dealer and examine it myself? Or put a deposit on it and wait for the tow vehicle so I can bring it home?

Want some additions done (solar, fantastic, television/DVD, substitute flooring for carpet) so should I contract the dealer to do that, or take it to a Camping World in my state?

My plans are to dump my "stuff" and be a full-timer. I had a taste of it before and it has always been my dream.

Opinions wanted!

Martha
Hey Martha.

It's a toss up, as to which comes first, or we really should say, "second and third".

The very very first thing is that printed stuff called "moolah".

Andy

Congrats Martha, don't keep us in suspense. I picked up a '73-25' earlier this summer that I'm in the process of going through.

So I bought the tow vehicle, dodge Durango, and two days later drove from Georgia to Airstream of new England where I bought my 2002 25' safari. The dealer had put 18 pictures of it on his website. He promised me that EVERYTHING would be in working order. True to his word - it is perfect. I have moved into it and christened it "Gracecan" in honor of Elvis who soothed my nerves on Series radio while I towed back to GA.

Now that you are set with all things Airstream, please come to the Falluminum rally on the 21-23 of October if you can. It is in North GA. Also, the GA unit of the WBCCI is very active, and has a campground just north of Helen, GA. They had their last rally for the season there this past weekend, but it all starts again in the Spring.

Thank you aviator. Sorry but I have plans for that weekend. Sure hope to meet the folks in the GA unit next spring when they start up again. I joined WBCCI as a member at large.
