Hey! Did you know...

That the trailer is wider than the truck. OMG!

We picked her up today. Hottest day in Little Rock this year.

Just curious. Did you buy her at Crain RV? If so how was your experience with the sale?

Yes. Crain. Things went pretty well for us. The guys in the back doing the make ready were very helpful.

Is it a 27FB? Nice rig and a lovely camp site.

Suggestion.

To protect the awning from possible rain damage, it's wise to keep one end lower than the other end, so that the rain easily runs off, instead of pooling.

Enough pooling and bingo, damage will happen to the awning arms, and sometimes the shell as well.

Thanks Andy,

We had a little rain this morning and I tried that. Ran right off the end.

All together we had a pretty successful first weekend.

Sounds like you may be from Little Rock. You may already know, but the local WBCCI chapter is having a rally at the NLR RV park the weekend of Sept 14. Since we only live a few blocks away we are not camping. We will just hang out a bit. If you want to meet some fellow Airstreamers you could stop by (we are fairly new ourselves).
