Overview Bought in 2004 in BC, Canada. Was being used as a park model at a local lake. Needed to be redone but was a decent trailer to start with. Needed the interior updated/redone, a bathroom, water and waste tanks, electrical replaced, but I lucked out with a good basic unit. Have not been able to locate info on trailers prior owners. Named after a much loved pet who took "ownership" of the trailer when it arrived and loved to snooze in it while we worked on it.

Smile My new trailer

I'm pretty sure I just sent a deposit for this trailer. I've wanted Airstream so bad for so long. Someone in Ontario keeps buying them out from under me. Now I've bought one all the way over in Alberta. Just have to figure out logistics now.
