Made it home with our new Airstream

So excited we made it home with our 1973 Ambassador Land Yacht. It had been in the pasture at someone's house for 2 years. Tire were brand new and she pulled home real well. Got right to work on getting the title straightened out.... that is a doozie. She is titled as a 1985. Don't know how that happened or why no one fixed it. Well maybe I know why After three hours on the phone and a arranging visit from the state police to do a vin check, I now have all the paperwork to send in to Louisiana which will fix it for 79.50. I am preparing for never a dull moment. On the upside there were two really nice fishing poles in side. Now I am going to figure out a name for her.

I'm sure a few other names will occur to you as work progresses.
"Titanic" and "Rio Dinero" both come to mind. No need to ask how I know this...

So happy for you! We just bought a Classic and haven't got to bring it home yet due to some issues. We will be naming ours too. Happy Camping.!

Very cool. Glad you're getting the paperwork ironed out. My Airstream experience is quite different. When I found my 1971 Sovereign 30 footer..it was sitting in a gravel quarry, very neglected. A tear in the lower panel right in front of the hot water thermostat allowed mice to move in. I can't get rid of 'em! Too many issues to list here, but water lines needed work, electrical only partially works, and the original Dometic refer died 5 years ago. The price was right, but the woods and Winter does take its toll. One good thing, since it's never "on the road" I dodged a bullet on all that entails (paper work, brakes, lights, etc.) So now it's our yearly "getaway" and I am the only "Airstream tech" I know. It's some learning curve, let me tell you!

Any name is good, but given the fishing poles inside, "Gone Fishin'" seems a possible option.

Congrats. Now the fun begins. We bought a 1971 Sovereign one year ago. After many hours of labor we are now actually living in it as "full-timers" and loving it. The time and effort were well spent.
