Think that only applies to boats.

Congrats!

the plunge

Sort of nautical, yes, but only in name. I've been there before, boats and Airstreams. There is a difference.

Unlike Airstreams, I guess you are referring to the two happiest days in a boat owner's life, The day you buy it and the day you sell it!!

Congratulations Norbert!!

Chas

Congrats you will love it. I sure love mine.
May I suggest that when you get it, pull it, park it, run everything in it, be hard on it using all the facilities. Tow it a couple thousand miles and see if something breaks. If it fails now your dealer will be more helpful with the warranty repairs than later on. ( Just from my experience ) If it don't break you got one heck of a great AS for the next forty years. I'm excited for you. Have fun fun fun.
