Thumbs up ShakeDown Trip - Airstream relocates to Ocean City RV Resort

Moved the "Silver Twinkie" from her storage lot in Woodbine, MD to her new permanent "forward staging area" in Ocean City, MD at "Island Resort RV Park" which actually is in Berlin, MD.

Keeping "Twinks" here for the season and thus will use this location for my point of departure for all of my trips for this year. Depending on how I like the resort and Ocean City area - may make this my permanent location (both for storage and seasonal use). Only downside will be any departures to locations in the west will require a few extra hours but this beats the storage lot up in Woodbine...

Nice "shakedown" trip with the new 30' Airstream Classic - still have lots to configure and pack into her to include some work mounting the Audio/Video equipment, in particular the 32" Sony and the Bose subwoofer, Apple Mac mini, BluRay player, etc. - but for now I can deal with the cables laying around till I figure out the final resting place for all of the components. I plan on spending the next few weekends moving in and getting everything ready for her first big road trip.

She towed like a dream over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (it was a bit windy) and I'm really loving the layout and extra room the 30 Classic is giving me over the 25FB Classic.

I also like the Island Resort RV Park - nice fresh water lake providing some wonderful ambience and good fishing - quiet wooded area but very close to the Ocean City Boardwalk while the Assateague Island Seashore is just minutes away...

John

I live on the Eastern shore and was wondering how it was pulling the AS in traffic and also over the bay bridge. My wife and I are looking to purchase an AS but a lot smaller.

Since it was Fathers Day weekend, had my son follow-me out and help load up the Trailer then just chilled out, nice Fathers Day gift.

Urmor - Travel over the Bay Bridge with a trailer (especially one as streamlined as an Airstream - especially with a ProPride or similar hitch) keeps those breezy day sways at bay. Any Airstream trailer will make you very, very happy.

Yea - we are all guilty of drinking the "Airstream Flavored Kool Aid"...
