Congratulations Jim and Rod!

Nothing better than a beautiful Airstream out in the driveway. Makes a home complete!!

Happy trails....let us know when you come up Colorado way.

Jim and Rod,

Very, very nice!! I know just what you are going through. I still wander outside just to admire the beauty of our Airstream, and I doubt if the attraction will ever fade. You mentioned once before that your homeowner's association frowns on the prominent display of RV's. That's too bad, as yours really compliments your home. I think that an Airstream is the ultimate in 'yard art', and quite appropriate in your setting. It certainly rivals the bronze sculptures I've seen in Santa Fe in terms of aesthetic beauty , but I'm somewhat biased.

I noticed what looks like a Ford F150 in one of your photos. Will that be your tow vehicle? If so, I'm interested in how well it works towing your Airstream. We've beefed up our old suburban to tow ours, but it won't last forever, so I'm starting my research now for a new tow vehicle in a year or two.

Anyway, here's wishing you many enjoyable adventures in your new Airstream!

I've been wanting to respond to thank everyone for all of the warm wishes but I've been pretty sick for the last couple of days & haven't spent much time at the computer. I'm feeling a little better so far today - but then again it's early yet!

At least everyone's responses to the thread have made me feel better!
