Leak curbside

I had a similar situation recently and finally discovered that the sprayer head was leaking and dripping behind the sink and then finally outside. If you have a sprayer head you might check that.

Purchase of 2006 25' Safari

We bought our 2005 25' twin bed safari 3 years ago from a private party for $29K, it had been stored under cover and used very little, so no issues with floor. Great little trailer!

Perfect tow vehicle for 25" FC

We tow our 25' Safari with a 2015 Silverado 1500, tows fine. Took it up some hills this summer and went fine, I was going 55 at the top of a pretty steep hill and seems to have plenty of power.

Rug for wet shoes

Go to Costco, they have a small scatter rug that is super for cleaning your feet before entering the trailer. I think they are only about $20.

Waxing your Airstream

I would use the Walbernize wax, it goes on really easy and wipes off well, does a good job. I wax my Airstream twice a year, and it goes pretty fast.

Towing with an air hitch

We had an air hitch, tow a 25' Safari, with a 2015 Silverado 1500, the ball for the air hitch was 19" from the back bumper, way to far. Tows much better with a Reese hitch.
