Picked up the 29' 1990 Excella today!

We picked up our new for us first Airstream this afternoon! Everything went so smooth, I am really pumped. I did have a little difficulty getting the Hensley Hitch hooked up to the truck. Is that what they mean by HAHA? I'm not sure I have everything set as it should be, but it sure pulled great for the 40 miles to get her home. Please take a look at the pic's and let me know what you think. The truck is parked a little higher than the AS, but I had to leave it there to reach the 30 amp service. I've got the books so I'll do a little digging tonight.
I was very happy when I plugged her in and had power. There was none at the PO house so I did not get to check things out. The AC is cooling great.
The only issue I have found so far is the running lights are not working. I have turn signal and brake lights, but no tail lights. Hooked the P-3 controller up and brakes worked perfectly.
Thanks for everybody who shared their knowledge. It sure helped me find a good one.
Mrs. Airhead said no Airstream tomorrow until I cut the grass so after work that is the first thing I'll do.

Very nice inside

Looks really good inside also. Floor is solid and other than usual wear & tear, no problems. We are looking forward to a total scrub. I'll put inside pic's after grass is cit!

looks great from here, i am sure you might sneak in before you cut the grass, i know i would. My daughter and her little family are in High Springs near you. Have you stayed at Oleno State Park? It's not far from you and a fun place to stay for a quite weekend.

I've been to Oleno several times. Mostly just went for day trips and picnics. Oleno also has great horse trails at a with the entrance off 27. I've tent camped there when my daughter was in to horses and her 4-H group had outings there. Oleno would be a great place to have a check out trip.
