On the way home with our new Airstream
We are on our way home with our new Airstream after trading our lovely '06 Safari 25ss after three full seasons. We are just closing our first nine days in our fabulous 2013 30A Flying Cloud as we slowly meander home to Virginia Beach from Colonial Airstream (great folks) in New Jersey.
Here we are under a steady rain in Harpers Ferry with flash flood warnings and thunderstorm watch in effect. What better thing to do than cancel the tow and enjoy a day in the aluminum cocoon?
There was much to like about our Safari and more in the Flying Cloud, in fact, too many to list while pecking away on a smarter-than-me phone. Here are a few - more living space, twin beds instead of the corner bed, a much more spacious powder room, a shower that we're told is smaller but which feels more open, solar, enough A/C to chill a meat locker, gas/electric water heater, sewer flush - and on and on.
What might be a few trade-offs? First of all we've got to learn to maneuver a longer trailer. The Safari fit in some tight spots and followed like a little puppy. What a great way to learn to tow. We also gave up the oven for a convection microwave. That's OK - this hobby camp cook will move more cookin' outdoors - except for tornado watch days. So far it's all good.
Gotta go change our profile. Smiles to all.
