AS love - new purchase

This is my fourth and last post tonight. Can you tell we're excited with our new purchase?

Had to tell about the PO. When we completed the deal today, before he left, he went to the front of the trailer and spread his arms as wide as possible and hugged it. He said "this trailer saved my life". He didn't go into a lot of details but he was very sincere. Now we really have to take good care of her!!

Back with more questions later, I'm sure.

Great story Hippiechick, mine is very similar, I reassured them (especially Mrs. PO) that she was in good hands and we would love her as much and take care of her just as they did. I could tell they were sad to let her go.

"he went to the front of the trailer and spread his arms as wide as possible and hugged it. "


I would hug mine but then I would have to use my micro fiber rag and wipe off my face and hand prints..

I would hug Lucy also, but then I would have to wipe the bugs and road dirt off of me.

The details

I gather it was a refuge from a difficult relationship - read - divorce in process.

Mopariac - My husband would say the very same thing about his '69 Roadrunner!

By the way does every AS on here have a name??

Aaah you freakin me out. I'd hug both my AS and my dodge challenger. Only I'm pretty sure the challenger will not be saving my life

Good luck with your new baby!

I would also hug Norman T. Bird. He is our 1956 Ford Thunderbird. And to answer your question, not all Airstreams here have names, but most do, including our beloved Lucy.

I'm a little surprised at how few of you who hug your trailer daily. I've been known to stroll past my wife and give the trailer a huge hug first, then back to the wife, then the cat gets his scritches. Am I missing something here?

I'm the direct opposite of you on this issue, John. My Honda generators are Amos and Leon. Without names, how would I tell them apart?
