Picked up our new Eddie

Finally...after a year of thinking, planning, and wondering if we were making the right decision...we picked up our new 27FB Eddie Bauer yesterday from North Trail RV in Ft. Myers, FL. Brought it home to get ready for a short trip to our daughter's wedding in Clearwater coming up this coming weekend. It came off the production line on Valentine's Day and we have a dear friend who is 97 and beginning to fight for his life. HIs name is Robert (Bob) Love. My husband and I decided to name our new Airstream "True Love" in his honor. He is an amazing man and has been a dear friend (more life a father) for many, many year and in fact - in his capacity as a Notary, he married my husband and I. We are loving life and looking forward to enjoying many happy years traveling and enjoying the great US of A!! Thank you all for your help and answers to my questions!Click image for larger version

Congrats!

We are still full-timing in our EB27- until we decide where we are going to buy again. This really is a great model to build on- with open floor plan. We just finished up at AlumiaFlamingo here in Sarasota FL, and were the only EB 27 out of the 250 here. A lot of Q&A when folks see the back hatch open and us relaxing in the recliners :-)

That is a wonderful story about how you named your new baby. Did you tell your friend about that? I bet he'd be touched and honored.

Yes! We did tell him that we had named the Airstream in his honor! He was thrilled! He told my husband and I a story about he and his brother buying a car when they were young (a brand of car that we had never heard of). Anyway, they named their car "True Love" because it never ran smooth! LOL! He is such a character and we have really enjoyed his stories over the years. I hope in whatever time he has left to be able to share our adventures with him through our eyes. Just got the old gal loaded up and ready to take off for Clearwater tomorrow as soon as I can get out of work! We can't wait! Thank you all!
