Our PO's. The most caring people we had met in a long time. They sure did hate to give up their baby and spent a solid 4 hours walking us thru, around, and hitching up so we would know what we were doing. They followed us to a nearby rv park and helped us hook up. We went to dinner with them. They met us for breakfast in the morning (mainly to make sure I had the steps up and had locked the door)

This is a pic of these two kind folks locking the door for the last time before they handed over the keys to us. In the shed where they stored it. What memories a picture brings back. I talked to them every day for the next two weeks, asking questions, trying to figure out things. A person could not get a better buying experience.

Airstreamers are a good breed. I will always remember their final words of advice. "Lock the door, lock the door, lock the door!"

Yes it is. Chuck, I hope you sent the PO's the "peace sign" photo to let them know the Airstream is in MANY good hands.

The pictures here were taken at our site in Bradenton (it was up to 80' every day in Dec..) & since this was our first experiment in part-time/full-timing, I'm glad to say that the trip back & forth was uneventful, and that the trailer was very comfortable (many many thanks to Andy & the Can-Am staff..) & we had a wonderful time.

Our decision to go south was the perfect answer to the question of "what to do for the holidays", & we're looking very forward to repeating the adventure in the years to come !!

Hi Paul
Although I was thinking about photos showing Airstreams being rescued I did not think about it the other way around.

Thanks for the story. It is true that sometimes our Airstreams can rescue us also and take us away to a better place.

This brought me to the verge of tears. Even though some fantastic images have been posted in this thread, your photo and accompanying narrative really pulls at the heart strings.

Bless all the caring, kind people out there....with or without an Airstream.

2011. Look at the shine on the TT: they didn't do that much in the '60s.

And when did the so-called "vanity plates" begin? I don't remember seeing many here in Canada at all when I was a youngtser.

All in all though, a very nice looking pair!

You're right about it being 2011, but...
