New to the Airstream World

Cheers to All from the Blustery Midwest!

My wife and I just bought a beautiful used 2007 Safari 25SS from Bill Thomas Campers in metro St. Louis and are receiving great info and tips from salesman Tom McAleer and new Airtstream friends Dan and Beth Zile.

We are also new members of this web community. Any pointers related to hitting the road for the first time, or about the 25SS ES in particular would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Welcome to Airstream and the forums. Best advise is to spend a bunch of time in these forums. I have found them to be invaluable. If you don't find some info that you are looking for just post a question and many of the highly experienced blogger will chime in to help. Most of the folks on these forums are simply great......Tim

Welcome Jim.

I am always happy to see new folks from the Midwest, but a fellow St. Louisan is even better. I live pretty close to BT Campers so I am there a lot. Hope you take the time to join us at a bunch of our Midwest rally events this coming year.

Steve

Welcome Jim! We've bought two A/S's from Bill Thomas. Nice folks and they have given me very good service on both trailers. I do know Dan and Beth and they are nice folks. I met them via the local WBCCI unit, but dropped out of that organization due to some issues with the direction that unit was going in. We live in the Fenton area. Watch the forums for an announcement later this winter regarding the Moraine View Forums Rally that will occur in June up by Bloomington Illinois. This will be year 8 of this event and we would love to see you there.

Jack

A Big Hearty Welcome to airforums.com for you and you wife!

You have a nice set-up, the SS model and a husky vehicle to tow it. Should be great fun to tour in!

Of course, we would love to see pictures of all of it, the TT (travel trailer) inside and out, and even your TV (tow vehicle).

cheers,
Aage

Thumbs up Welcome aboard...

Lot's of helpful folks here, anything your not sure of just ask away.

A good way to start........go thru the manual several times, check out the coach real good, then... read it again. Come back and post some pic's, better yet post 'em now.

Stream Safe...

Welcome, take a short trip and spend a night in your new home (away from home).
You'll have some questions. You'll get answers here.
Enjoy - you have made a good choice.
