Tim, the thread is "New Owner Observation", which to me means just that. Some observations are different than others. How you see that as hijacking makes no sense to me.

Here's another happy owner of a new Aristream. We bought our rig new... a 2006 bought in the spring of 2007. We have had very little to deal with in terms of fixes. One leak situation that was finally discovered to be an un-caulked screw under the solar panel. But that's pretty much it. We have over 20K miles on it and it's just as sweet and cozy as it was when we got it...love the little thing! WE have woned another RV and there is no comparison in quality. After getting the Airstream the other RV felt like a piece of junk that will never be more than that, no matter what someone does to it.

Was Clarabelle the clown? What about Mortimer Snerd? In the TV of my youth we had JP Patches who was so funny. He was on KING-5, Seattle. Maybe othere. I think he is still alive.......

Yes, Clarabelle was the clown. Played by a young Bob Keeshan, who I'm sure you will remember as another famous childrens' actor...

Howdy also had a female friend, one who was royalty, even. She was called Princess Summerfall Winterspring. Sound familiar?

We have owned a 2006 23 Safari for 5 years now, we take it out 5 or 6 times a year and have been very pleased. Same sensor problems as other have mentioned but I can deal with that.
I still enjoy all the people that come by our campsite and ask about our rig.

Sorry, Rich, something must have come over me.

Please ignore my comments and return to the discussion of leaks and such.

We've got the same year AS and our black water sensor doesn't work all that well, but I haven't even tried to recalibrate... so i can't blame anyone.

We love our AS. After restoring an 80 year old house a few years back, I've learned to just take things in stride. Life is too short to let things bother me.

I am heading into our 6 th year with my 2005 Safari 30 Bunkhouse. 66,000 miles since new and have too much fun to moan about issues that I have had. Lightweight 30' compared to industry and tows awesome. If I was not handy working on things I may feel differently.

Just replaced brakes and did a bearing repack.
