Sooo excited!

I grew up camping with my family with POS OB trailers.

I vowed that one day I would have an airstream

About 4 years ago that dream came true and I bought my first. A 1976 overlander and a 76 Elidorado to pull it.

Sadly I never got to take it out and sold it.

Two weeks ago We bought a 19 Bambi CCD and yesterday I bought a Mercedes GL450 to pull it (and our 4 big dogs).

Picking up the trailer next weekend. :-)

Hi

Sounds great !!

Get out and go camping !!!

Yes, you might not go out very far on that first trip There are always things you discover you need after the first day / week / month / year / decade. The rate of discovery drops off fast. The need to do a supply run quickly also drops off pretty quickly.

Aluminum ecstasy! May this trailer bring you and yours many adventures. Gee, I just purchased a 75 Overlander. They aren't as modern looking as the new ones. Someone once said the interior decor back in the 70s was the luxury coffin look. There is wild print fabric everywhere. Oh well. Maybe yours was the same theme.

That looks close but mine was lime green and yellow with green Formica. Someone recovered it poorly in a kind of Navaho pattern and put office carpet in.

I can’t wait until next weekend to get it
