Welcome to the group. Ollie is quite handsome. Mac our corgi also was originally named Oliver.

See you on the road,

I tried to download these with my previous message but failed. Let's see if this works. Our kids and our AS.

Welcome to the group. Victor has a great smile.

We just returned from Agua Caliente Hot Springs County Park. The highs were in the low 70s for the first 3 days and then went up into the 90's for the last 2 days. The dogs and I love our A/C. Now that we are home, the temperatures dropped back down into the low 70s.

See you on the road,
Larry, Bill, and their corgi owners, Mac & Tasha

Congratulations on getting your Argosy. Love the photos. Your unit looks like it has had a lot of TLC.

It is great to see that so many people have pets that travel with them.

See you on the road,

So I don't spam the forum, I'll just link to the pics I posted in my "in the Argosy now" thread.

That is too funny. So, you know, Oliver was the one of the duo that was in charge?

Finally!

Here's a pic of me on our way to Toronto this morning. And one of me and Petra on our last visit home to Miami.

The imperial retired from tow duties a while back.

Looking forward to meeting everyone on the road!

Cheers,

Javi

Nice looking combo! I'm looking at going with a Touareg as well. Looked at trucks but the VW is a great unit with lots of space for the dogs.

Javi,

Thanks for sharing your photo with Petra.

It is wonderful to see more people of color on the Forum reflecting the ethnic diversity of its members. I wonder if there ever has been a poll done on the ethnic heritage of Airstream owners, as I have seen do not seen much represented in rally photos from various parts of the country.

Your rig combination is a handsome one. Petra is an impressive, classical name for your French bull dog, who reminds me of my late pug.

See you on the road,
Larry, Bill, and their corgi owners, Mac & Tasha

The Touareg TDI is an amazing vehicle and I wholly recommend it. The T-Reg pulls my 28 foot international beautifully. That said, I did have the receiver reinforced at Can-Am RV in London, Ontario and I spend the cash on the Propride hitch to make for a very stable ride. I love the set up.

An AS towed by a Touareg?

The last time I saw something like that it was an Excella 34' at JC.... I found it hard to believe that someone trusted such a big trailer behind that!

Nice setup! We use the ProPride hitch too. I doubt we could tow without it! Plus, our first trip out, Sean was very receptive and helpful in taking our calls while on the road. Money well spent!

Hello everyone. My husband Dietmar (Viennese) and myself (Richard), civil-unioned in NJ and together for 13 years, just bought a 27' FB Serenity (80th anniversary model). I should be asleep right now because I have to get up in a couple of hours to take over from Dietmar the care of our 6 month old twins Tara and Philip. The reason I can't sleep is that I'm very concerned that when we get our trailer home at the end of the month I won't be able to back it down my driveway. Silly to think of this after buying, but I always have been sort of impulsive. I would post pictures except that I'm writing this in bed on my iPad. I'll have to get around to doing that later. I'll be posting elsewhere on the board the reason for my nervousness, but, in a nutshell, we live in a hilly enclave in central Jersey where the roads are rather narrow and the corners rather tight. I think I'm going to have to build a model to scale to convince myself that I can get the trailer in to the driveway. The driveway itself is about 10' wide with a wider opening at the street. Across from the egress is a hill (going up) and the street is about 25' wide. The driveway is a hill going up both sides, so it's sort of like a gulley. The hills on both sides recede back away. The driveway is at a 90 degree angle to the road. It's a long driveway, going back to a much wider area outside of a 2-car garage and ending at a very steep incline (going downhill). Once the trailer is backed down the driveway there will be plenty of room around it for our car to get in and out We don't own a tow vehicle yet. Whatever we get, it has to fit the twins and our 3 year old Eleanor. In my recurring waking nightmares I wind up getting the trailer stuch halfway in the driveway and I'm blocking traffic (of which there's vey little) and need some sort of crane to get me out of my predicament.
