We Are Back!!!

Well now, where to begin? After 23 days and nearly 5000 miles, we are home from our first trip in our new Classic and what a trip it was! I don't know, but we may have qualified for the longest "shakedown" trip ever? First, just let me say that our Ford and Airstream both performed flawlessly! This is our first AS and we both really like it a lot. All the problems were minor. We popped two interior rivets and I had to work on one cabinet light and one interior blind. That was it! Not bad for a 5000 mile first trip. I am trying to re-size some photos so that I can post them in my gallery. All that I can say is, "Live Riveted!"

Congratulations on a good SAFE trip. We too just finished a maiden voyage for this our third AS. 2015 30' FC and like you, our trailer only had minor problems and the Ford F350 was flawless.

Leaving again this week for a short ten day trip as a finish for the season until January when we are off to Florida.

Pictures!!

Well, I finally posted some pictures of our trip out West. Not all of the pictures are of our Classic, so if you only want to look at Airstreams, just look away. There's one old AS that was at Lake Powell AZ, that I shot. After being in the "furnace" for three weeks, it is nice to be back home where it is cool and rainy... which we need. We will be taking a short four day trip to TN for Columbus Day. Just have to get the "silver bullet" and my truck cleaned up. I hope that everyone enjoys the pictures and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I'll answer them if I can, know what I mean?

Thanks for posting the pics! We are so jealous; our Classic is due out of production late Nov. We have the F250 version of your truck; same color and appears to be the same camper top.

The next couple of months will hopefully pass quickly for you. I really like my truck, thats a Leer top with all the options. I also added a lot of extras to my truck. Now I am spending what's left of my money on my new Classic. You will definetly have a trailer thats worth waiting on!
