also, I have to ask, how did you manage to give them up after so short a time? and also, I hit send very rapidly after placing thoughts in posts and emails - sorry, it can get annoying - ADD is strong in this one

The lack of a gray water tank is one of the big detractors from a pre '74, IMHO. Awesome that one has already been added!!!

-Red, getting slightly jealous now...

picking up "new" trailer

Congrats, it's beautiful! I love the look of the 1960s Safari! Like you, I'm also towing with a newer Tacoma. Something I learned from Tacoma World is that because it prefers higher gear/low RPMs you will see with any hill or struggle that it downshifts and quickly goes back up as soon as it can. I believe it's referred to as "hunting" and it heats the transmission up quickly when towing. If you see it do that, select it to "4" and run at the higher RPM and that will protect the transmision.

Great pictures! Glad to hear someone already put a gray tank in yours. Also looks like a new water heater.

A 2015 Taco is probably a good buy due to the 2016 body style changes.

Congrats! Go out, have fun and camp! Keep a little notebook of all the questions you have as you use your Airstream! Ask away, and oh yes, keep posting photos of your adventures!
