Thanks, Jim and Rod. Did you buy new...used...refurbish yourselves? How often do you travel with it? We newbies are a question-a-minute.

Hi Sue - We bought new. We have a 2008 28' Safari SE. There are several members of our WBCCI unit that have vintage and have done some great work restoring them.

If you have the desire, time, ability and ambition then vintage could be the way to go. We've seen some pretty amazing restorations. One of the best is "Birdie" a 1956 Safari. It was totally restored by an Airforum member (InsideOut) and her husband. They're both professional designers and they did an AMAZING job with the 'Bird'.

As for traveling, we didn't get a chance to go out much this year (for lots of reasons) but we hope to spend a lot more time on the road next year.

Jim

Thanks, Jim. I have been looking at some restoration pictures and am impressed with what folks have done. No time to tackle, however. May look at gently used as well as new.

Sue

Sue... Welcome & Howdy! This is the very best place for all things Airstream...lots of knowledgeable folks who are willing to share their AS experience and help whenever possible. We are so glad to see our brothers & sisters here as well... We've enjoyed both the Forums and the 4CU of WBCCI...and have made great friends in the Airstream community...

Happy trails!

The first trip out was great and the AS towed like a dream. Partner and I went up to my daughter's in the foothills of the Appalachians in north AL. My son even drove up as well! Was going to go to a state park but they were full, so we hooked up to the 30 amp in driveway (previous owner of the house had an RV... lucky us!). In spite of her having a nice house, we always found ourselves in the AS at mealtime (when we didn't go out), it seems. Its okay, though... you always make room for friends and family.

Do pics have to be uploaded to a website to be included in these messages?

Thanks, Guys! I checked out your decorating site...awesome! Very classy. I like the idea of changing the decor to fit the traveling mood. I'll bet it makes each trip more enjoyable.

Thanks, Sue... Glad you like our interiors...first we decide where we're going, then we decide what dťcor to use. Nuts, huh? But it's fun, and yes, it help make each trip more memorable...

Kevin,

It doesn't give me the option to upload from my computer when I do that... it says to type in the URL... as if they have to be uploaded to a pic site first, THEN merged into the message here.

I use the paper clip on the top. I can't use it on my iPhone but can from my home computer. It can't be a quick reply it has to be advanced I think.

Hi people! Mark and I got our 2006 22' CCD last June and have been all over the country! I wish I was better at posting all the thousands of pictures I've taken... a lot are on facebook. OK, I promise to try to do better!
We joined WBCCI in November, have been on a handful of rallies, and just got home from the Swiss Festival National Rally. We have mede great friends in the WBCCI, some gaystreamers iincluded, and cherish the fun times we're having. Thanks everyone for all the informative suggestions! See you down the road!
