Drag up fever is the affliction we all get when we visit the trailer or MH and want to hook up , or drag up, the rig and go somewhere, anywhere, just not back to the daily grind.

The severity of the fever is usually in direct proportion to the kind of week you are having or had at work

Newbie here!

My husband (buckwheat) and I have just recently purchased our very first RV! Wise move on our part to buy an Airstream. Even better that it happened to be Dr. Joe's. (winner) We're bringing her home this coming weekend! This forum has already proven to be a gold mine of information to us! We've been "cramming" for this new adventure of ours. Everyone here has been so helpful and willing to offer advice. This IS the place for information on the care and ownership of an Airstream. I don't know what we would have done without it!! My husband reads up on the mechanical end of things...and I read up on the decorating end.
It's fabulous, Darling!

RE: Hello Guest!!

After having frequented these forums (forii?) for some months now, I figured that it was time to wade in.

I run the U.S. Naval Sea Cadets here in Rhode Island, and we have a command and field support vehicle that we use for events, parades, etc. That vehicle being a 1987 345 Classic motorhome, and I am constantly amazed at the response it gets every time we have it out in public. People love this thing - besides serving as our unit's "U-Boat" the 345 is a rolling billboard for the Sea Cadets.

You can get a closer look here:

Go to the webpage

Airstreamforums.com has been a lifesaver for me as I keep our U-Boat shipshape and Bristol-fashion. I'm glad to be officially aboard!

Re: Seacadets

My Sea Cadets are very proud of our Airstream, especially when it accompanies them in parades. Several of them have been spending some time working in a local air museum doing some panel restoration work on an F-4 Phantom - they've gotten some experience polishing aluminum!

Re: Sea Cadets

Hoo boy. My wife was a candy-striper at the clinic at Quonset when she was in high school, back in the late 60s. Maybe she tucked you in.

Life without an Airstream?

Life without an Airstream is a tale of woe.

It took 20 years for the right one to find me & it will be for sale sometime after I die. Hopefully it will provide the next owner as much pleasure as does for me. The original owner kept it until death forced a separation. Seems to be a common part of many Airstream trailers history.

I keep mine in the yard under an RV port - can go out and touch it and care for it anytime. The dog's are charged with physical security & do a good job.

Welcome to the Forum!

Would you post some pics of your unit and the RV port?
