SilverGate's Safari is Home at Last!

Well… after a year of research… it’s home at last…

Just in time to celebrate the last month of the Year of the Dog!
A 2007 23’ Safari SE LS factory-order with 2 Solar Panels
2 Glassmatt batteries, 600-watt inverter, Wireless speaker
Full awning pkg. (3 sides) & L-Lounge with rolling dinette table
2 Fantastic Fans… 1 with reversible switch installed by dealer.
Midnight Sun interior with Graphite counter tops
Audio/Video Package with 19" Sony WEGA LCD…
And of course, that Equal-i-zer 1000/10,000# WD Hitch.

Southwest Coaches, Irvine CA, did a superb job…
Working with us on ordering, and then prepping this trailer.
Salesman Troy Bailey is tops!
Service tech Aaron did great job in walk-through & orientation.
Minor items like wardroom door latch & black water sensor fixed…
While we were completing paper work.

It’s now time for a safari…
Maiden cruise already scheduled for next weekend:
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park…
See you on the road!

Excellent! But refresh my memory: Why didn't you get a Reese hitch?



Just kidding. Enjoy your new Airstream.

Thumbs up Finally!

Glad it's home at last! That's a good looking TV combination. I look forward to a tour, both Safari and monument

We're interested in the PV panels airstream used...putting in my request for pictures of your setup -- hopefully you have a nice tall ladder.

I'm sooo glad you went with Troy in Irvine. Wish we had, but we plan to do any future service with those folks!

Cheers,
-jd.

SilverGate.
Congrats, the long wait is over. Your whole set-up looks great, all nice new and shinny. It looks like we are all going to have some fun coming up. Stop by some time on your way home from the Monument, maybe we could let the two AS's bond.
3DogNight, Jerry

aloha silvergate...

i'm on the road, but when i saw this thread,

just had to stop and reply.

con grat u la tions !

and a saaa-weet combination of features too...

but 2 pix are NOT nearly enough....

come on now, we've been on this thing for months so give us more!

lets see some interior shots and some close ups and some fold outs...

ok, keep your clothes on for these, but how'bout inside the doors and lockers, before they are full of stuff.

get those awnings rolled out, i wanna see then sailing!

and enjoy that pristine baby fresh look...

then take her camping and get it DIRTY!

see ya camping soon...
