What a beautiful combination. I'll bet it turns a lot of heads in France.

very little

I know 3 airstream owners in France on the forum. I never see on the road or motorway.
it's very expensive in france(cost,taxe,) and very difficult with the law.

Hi Fred;

Happy to see you've gotten your french license plate. is it in normal or collectible "grey card" ( or title ) ?

I think the solution with the increasing petrol price, is to equip with the LPG system. Same consumption but low price at the gaz station although the equipment is expensive... Then you have to make lot of miles to amortize it.
Now it's 0,44 for one liter. I live at the belgium frontier... and it's the best price in LPG

Here is my plate in American size; You know why 27 ?

Bruno.

hello Perry, Bruno and others too.
glad to read you.
the gas ! it's very expensive for make and i don't like bomb below my ass.
I will try to make plate custom in the USA with my French numbers,i seeks on the Web somebody which could do that.
the week end from the 1 to November 3 we leave has "vulcania" in Auvergne to visit the volcanos with the airstream.i hope will not have snow.best regard from France

Hi Perry! & Bonjour aux Streamers de l'hexagone

I thought you didn't need "mines" inspection for anything older than 25 years.

Ron

"mines" ; Ron is right !!!!

Hi Ron;
You're, one more time , right !
NO need to go to the " mines" ( I don't know the traduction but this word means french security inspection ) because, sure, your trailer is more than 25 years old and it's a collectible trailer.
You can keep all the genuine lights, turn signals in red, rear rond reflectoring parts just because it's collectible ... dixit the FFVE president when i phoned him about that.
So I suppose you knew that, Perry; You'rent at your first trailer, isn't it ?

Hey Ron, you were afraid to see that, one day,on the web; Now it's time; Do you remember; yes , of course... Great time, too short !

Bruno
