We bought our first Airstream!

I'm so excited - we bought our Airstream! It's a 2014 25A Flying Cloud twin bed. It's our first foray into the rv/trailer life, although we lived on a sailboat for 3 summers, so at least we're used to small spaces.

The hardest part now is waiting...it's back in NJ so we'll wait until the weather is nicer before driving back and picking it up. I'm *hoping* to go the last week of March while my high schoolers are on spring break....I know the weather is toss-up at that time of year.

I'm busily pinning on Pinterest different color schemes and decorating ideas, while my husband is poring over all the boring mechanical stuff. I'll be joining 4CU and we hope to be using it by late April or May, and then we'll take a big summer trip back east in June/July.

I'm giddy!!

:-D

Giddiness is a good thing! My wife and I bought our first ever last year and we still can't wipe the smile off our faces. Most important learning for me last year - my worst day camping is still 10,000 times better than my best day in the office. :-)

Enjoy!!!

I looked at a 25 flying cloud twin this weekend. It's a great floor plan. I'm jealous!

Congratulations. And welcome to the Forum. We have found it a great resource to learn everything we need to know (and we have sooooo much more to learn). Happy travels!

Congrats! We bought ours last year, also having moved from sailing. We did not have much time to use it last year but did enjoy it when we did. This year we have already planned about 5 weeks of trips for the Spring. Post when you have questions...you will receive plenty of answers.

Thanks everyone! I'm thrilled to have found these forums - they're already on my twice-a-day reading list. So much great information!

Hope to meet some of you this year while we're on the road...not sure where all we're going, but I know I'll be out there for at least 3-4 weeks straight, and then long weekends here and there.

We're new too and know the feeling! We're in a 16' and just revisited looking at the 25 Flying Cloud…. I"m jealous! It is such a nice floor plan. We have a new Murano so we maxed out at pulling the 16' but you never know… for now it works. Enjoy!

Agreed, that and the 27' twin too. Congratulations.

It is good that you will have a big trip under your belt right away.

Congratulations!

You will absolutely love the twin beds, and as a plus (we had a 2011 queen size AS prior), the mattresses aren't that bad at all. The wife still prefers a topper for even more softness, but that's her preference.

We looked at the 27 foot trailer, but with the twin beds, the 25 is just as open as the 27.

If you bought at Colonial (like we did), you made the best decision of all.

You're in for a world of great experiences as a landlubber.
