Thanks. The Forums have been invaluable to us during our search. Everything we know about Airstreams we learned here. Now the REAL learning begins!

We've planned a 2-day trip to a park only 25 miles away with some friends who also are new to RV'ing and just bought a class A motorhome.

We have adjoining sites reserved and are staying close to home so we can run back and pick up anything essential that we forget.

Since neither of us have owned an RV before, whatever they don't mow down with the motorhome we'll back over with the trailer

Congratulations! We have exactly the same year, and model......you're gonna love it! We've owned ours a little over two years, spent around 150 nights in it, and towed for almost 24,000 miles. During that time, I have made a few modifications....the most significant being the removal of the dinette and installation of a leather recliner. So, if you have any questions....send me a PM.
