I think it is big enough for now. Haha. It has so much room in it lol. I am not sure what we will bring to Eureka yet, probably the Moho. I started to rip out carpet and curtains today. Oh boy I have a lot to do. Here are a few pics.

Ok, if it does indeed get easier, it will have to be on the next trip, and I think it can't get harder. On this last trip I wound up making so many mistakes it just wasn't funny anymore. I broke one of the snap-up clamps on the way out (200 miles or so) by forgetting to connect the chain on one side to the hitch. The chain and hook survived, but the clamp got bent to the point that it was useless. Discovered this at 11:00pm after 7 hours of travel. The next thing I did was just dopey. It was late and dark and I'd been up since 5:15am that day. I connected the fresh water hose to the sewer flush-out. 15 minutes later, my husband is complaining that there's no water, and it doesn't dawn on me what I've done. 10 minutes after that, the toilet starts to overflow, while the 8 month old twins are crawling around on the floor. Luckily, there was almost nothing in the black water tank. Took me a few seconds to realize my mistake and fix it and another hour to clean up the mess. Sore thumbs from wringing out towels. Finally got to bed about 2:00am. Long day. Thankfully the rest of the trip was thoroughly enjoyable.

Sorry you had some surprises and goof-ups on your last trip... But don't worry — we all have made mistakes in different forms, and some with worse and more lasting results than yours. With so many sources of distraction (kids, the hour, long day of driving, etc) maybe a check-list would be in good order so that you can be sure everything is done and done correctly before you step on the gas or turn on the water. When you are getting ready to tow or setting up/breaking down camp maybe stick to a routine and do things in a specific order that works for you so that after a while ir becomes wrote and you don't forget to do anything. It's also a good thing to not carry on a conversation with anyone while you are doing these chores. That just get you more distracted. And when you think you are don, do a walk-around to double-check that everything is taken care of ... The good thing is that you won't make these particular mistakes again! The next trip will be smoother, you can count on it.

Then there's the schlepping of all the stuff to the trailer in order to head out, but that's certainly doable. I'm going to make sure that I have a place all lined up, just in case. We've got family coming in tonight from Vienna for a week, so looking at tow vehicles will have to wait until next weekend. I think the short list has Ford Expedition, Chevy Suburban, and Nissan Armada on it. Fun, fun, fun.
Hey guys! If you have not yet picked your tow vehicle, I can speak VERY highly of our Infinit QX56, which is the cousin of the Armada. After owing 3 Suburbans this vehicle has been the most trouble free, and the dealer network really takes care of you. The power plant (5.6 liter V8) does a great job even in the mountains. We just came back from Colorado and never dropped below 60.

So check out the Armada and the QX, they just went to a new body of the QX so if there are 2011s left they might be a steal.

Introducing: Drew and Greg!

So, since this is an intro thread... I am Greg. My husband (legally married in MA) and I have been together 15 years. He is the one in the pic. I always have the camera.

We have 3 dogs all rescues: Sydney (Australian Shepherd), Bella (not sure, but she is darned cute) and Coco (Shar-Pei/Red Heeler mix)

Our Airstream is a 2006 Safari SE/LE/SS which we pull with our Infiniti QX56. We live in Phoenix, AZ where we camp with a great group of local RV friends. SO GLAD to see this whole group!

That's sort of amazing. We did pick the Infiniti QX56 as our tow vehicle. Looks pretty much just like yours. Got 1750 miles on it in 2 months, which is a lot for us. We love it.

Wow, cool new sub-forum!

I'm Mickie and my honey of 21 years is Mary. We got Civil Union'd here in IL in June; just in time for us to find out Mary's job will be ending in November, thankfully we can now move her over to my benefits at work. We are lifelong campers and really wanted to upgrade to an AS but with the pending loss of income that will have to wait. I dropped off the board once we realized an Airstream wasn't in our immediate future... but I do like it here and can still enjoy reading until we get to take the plunge.

Hi Mickie & Mary,

Congratulations on tying the knot. It has been a long time coming. Gay and Straight people are always amazed to hear about the longevity of our relationships, as more FOD proudly announce their years of being together.

Regarding the AS, take your time and research taking your basic needs into consideration so that you can take advantage of a good buy with confidence. There is so many helpful, friendly, knowledgeable people on the Forum to answer your questions and refer you to pertinent threads. We spent a year of comprehensive research before we decided on our AS.

With cost being the deterrent, I initially wanted to get an economical pop-up. Thank goodness my husband, Bill, insisted that we and the dogs should consider all options.

With so many factors (size, trailer storage, insurance, community covenants and restrictions, the corgis' and my heat sensitivity, my passion for cooking, etc.), our perfect match was an AS. It was worth the purchase and we love land yachting with it, a retirement dream come true.

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