Congrats on your new trailer. We got 1991 25' 2 years ago and love it. We don't even miss the 31' we had for so many years. This is a great size for traveling and getting into smaller sites, especially forest campgrounds. Hope you like it.

Would you care to share where in Texas you saw that. I'm in the market and could use a lead or two.

New owner 1993 excella 25 (another new owner of a used 25)

Just picked up our 'new' 1993 Excella 25 ft 11 inches. Looking forward to learning and loving it. Appears to be gently used. Any and all help appreciated. Completely new to trailer pulling and camping in general except for a few times that I tent camped. Just figured it is the right vehicle for a newly retiree, wife, and two little dogs. Again -- any and all help welcomed!

Welcome. We love our 1988 25' and travel extensively in it. Expect some problems. Fix them because it is worth it. Enjoy for years. The Excellas from this era are very capable trailers.

Welcome, A 25' is a great length. Look for some AS folks in your area. I'm sure they will be happy to help with your learning curve.

Many thanks!! Just went on our first short and local trip. It was good I am using my old 1988 silverado 1500 which is slightly overloaded with this trailer. A Hensley Arrow hitch came with the TT, and that helps a lot. Shopping for a newer TV and looking at pickups and SUVs, both with tow packages to pull more than 8500.

Question, where are the water heater inlet, outlet, and bypass valves?

Also, I bought a waste water dump hose from WalMart, however, it didn't fit -- was too small in diameter. Where to look for correct size at reasonable price?

Opps, I think that I have answered both of my questions -- which were not very good questions anyway!

Adapter for sewer hoses

Valterra T05-2285VP Universal Adapter

That’s the adapter you need to hook any sewer hose to your airstream. They carry them on Amazon for $10.
