Christmas present!

My husband surprised me with a 68 Safari. Now I can stop looking at airstream classifieds and pay some attention to him.

Welcome to the forum!

Enjoy your Airstream. It's nice when the both of you share the desire to rv. My wife was not too sure about traveling when I bought our Avenue motorhome.

Now, she looks forward to our trips and our 11 yr. old standard poodle took to it like a champ. Been to Yellowstone and back, also to Maine and back. Next trip will be to the southwest in March.

Enjoy your travels!

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Congratulations on your new baby. May you have safe travels and many great Airstream Adventures with her.

You might check the deployment of your awning. I believe that the upper bracer bar is supposed to be hooked to the awning reel and made taught.

Thanks! Lots to figure out! We had an issue with scraping bottom of the back bumper backing onto our sloped driveway. No damage but any ideas to avoid this? The trailer was not loaded down either

I , also noticed the support arm on the awning. I have seen this in several other pictures, one was on NOT extending the awning all the way. Can this be done without damage to awning?

Welcome Aboard!! 👍

Our first was a 63 Safari...30yrs and counting.

You have contracted the malady, no effective cure, you must adapt and realize there may be more to come in the future.😘

Yes move the arm...it appears yours is extendable, silicone the arm, support and lift the button to release.👍
