About to Ink the Deal 2007 Ocean Breeze 25'

First, I wanted to thank everyone who contributes to this wonderful forum, it has helped me tremendously during all my hand wringing to figure out what Airstream was going to work for me and my husband.

We've decided on a not so new 2007 Ocean Breeze. It is new in the sense that it has never been used, but it has been sitting on a lot for over two years.

After much thought on a towing vehicle (with exhaustive readings of the very thorough forum on this subject), I've settled on a Toyota Tundra Crew Cab. Never thought I'd own a truck, but after much deliberation, it really seems to be the best option (the 80/20 rule was the clincher...with 7000# to tow, I think it will be just fine no matter what we put in it). I'm keeping my small SUV btw, since I don't think I can drive a monster on a regular basis. But a truck will help with all the yard work that I do....

On the hitch side, I'm leaning towards the Propride. I live in South Florida and the drivers down here are CRAZY, so we will need all the help we can get on the safety side.

If all goes as planned, we will take delivery before Christmas and go on a short getting acquainted tour. I'm so excited since I'll be able to travel with our baby (my sheltie -- pic included)

We are so excited to be able to explore our wonderful state of Florida! Don't think we will make it out of Florida for quite some time since this is a really LONG state.

I'm looking forward to meeting some of you on the road! Thanks again for all of the information. It has been invaluable.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

It sounds like you have thought everything out, and are on the right track.

Post some photos when you get your new baby.

If you a looking for a great Florida trip, the Can Opener Forums Rally will be held in Santa Rosa Beach on Jan 8-10, 2010. It's a great event where you will get to meet and compare notes with many other Airstreamers in a casual atmosphere.

Congratulations. You've made a good choice. The Ocean Breeze package is a favourite of mine. Getting new old stock is terrific. The best of both worlds.

Looking forward to seeing pictures of your sheltie lounging in her/his luxury home on wheels.

We've been towing our 2007, 25' Ocean Breeze for two years now. We get to spend about 30 nights each summer on her and enjoy it more than words can express. (In Ohio we don't do any winter towing - she's put away until the spring thaw, unfortunately). Last summer we made it to six states and this year not quite as many but we did spend as much time on her as last year. We're planning a trip to Jackson Center for some minor warranty work yet this fall - then away for the winter.

We have an Ocean Breeze - our avatar isn't exactly correct - we didn't know the difference two years ago when we first purchased her - we called her a CCD as we almost purchased a 23' CCD but moved up to the 25' at the very last minute - and so glad we did.

Good luck with your new baby and Happy 'Streaming.

Thanks for all the good wishes. I found out today that they sold the 2007, but maybe it is a blessing in disguise 'cause we are going for the 2009 Ocean Breeze. What the heck, you only live once. Fingers crossed that they don't sell that one before I can sign the deal! I'm getting very excited about streaming down the road!

BTW, can anyone point me to the what to do on your first excursion section? I've been looking through the forums, and I know I need a couple of hoses and some rubber gloves (and I'm imagining a first aid kit for when I hit my head trying to get the hose connected)...however, what else do I need? I'm sure someone has put together the 4-1-1. Thanks in advance!

Make sure the sewer hose will hook up, and get the adapter if not. Get the powdered latex gloves if you can use them, they go on so much easier. Check the tire pressures at the dealer. Check the lug nuts early on too. Fill the water tank at the dealer, turn on the water pump, fill the hot water tank, then check for leaks. Make sure you get a set of emergency Triangle, a chock block of some sort, a good pair of leather gloves (saves mess/skin when changing a flat ). I have a set of stabalizer jacks I set on the frame by the axles. It helps keep it from rocking or shaking when walking around. It also helps with the door alignment on mine. I bought a lot of stuff for mine like pots, pans, a full set of cooking supplies, door mats, ect. Get a thermometer for the fridge, freezer, & oven too. It makes setting the fridge, and figuring out the oven, a lot easier. I know there's tons more, but this is a start Happy Trails!

Thanks for that advice. I would never have figured all of this stuff out!
