The only bad advice I see here is that Bambi's rule. Not true. The Flying Clouds are the kings of the road

Oh, Dan, Dan, Dan. It's not ADVICE. It just is.

Hi Mark,
Welcome to the Airstream owners club, and most especially a FOD member! Best of luck in your travels home in your new Airstream.
I can honestly say don't expect everyone in our community to understand your purchase of an RV.
You'll find that camping and attending your closest Airstream Rally enjoying the Airstream lifestyle is contagious.
Learn everything that you can at the dealer, whatever you don't understand, make them repeat it for you until you DO understand.
Towing is another matter. Be aware of your surroundings, realize that towing isn't about setting land speed records either. 55 to 60mph is your optimal speed, especially considering the $ of gas nowadays.
A checklist is perfect, several to be honest. One for loading necessary items inside Airstream (food, linens, dishes, cooking ware). One for hooking up trailer to tow vehicle (TV) as well as when you arrive at your destination.
Another list for setting up at campground.
Lots of things are better left in trailer rather than trying to move it all back and forth between Airstream and home base.
Private Message me for any specific questions. You're already at the best place possible to learn about your Airstream, use the search function, if unable to find an answer, don't be shy about asking the Forum.
Best of luck in your travels home. Keep us all posted on how you do.
One final suggestion, if you have a smartphone, check to see if an app is available for the AirForum. I use mine quite a bit when away from computer.
Thanks, Derek
