Hi again everyone! What a busy week so far. Purchase of a new Airstream and truck shopping! And on top of all that, my husband was in the middle of installing new closets in our bedroom, so he had to finish that project (which he did). Whew!

Anyway, just wanted to share more info about our purchase (which we still haven't picked up). Our AS came equipped with the leather upgrade, and inverter. We negotiated and added the dual awnings, microwave/convection oven, towing package, 2 treatments of some sort (can't remember - but it has something to do with winterizing??), some recreational kit and 18 months storage. Unfortunately, we have no place to store the trailer, so storage was a biggie for us. This will give us time to figure out where we're going to keep it. We're thinking of pouring cement on one side of our driveway and storing it there. The neighbor across the street did that for his boat. So it might work for us.

Anyway, we negotiated for 19% less than the price, no cost for the add-on's.

As for the truck...we're seriously thinking of the F-150. We have no kids, and we'll be carrying no "extra" recreation stuff (no kayak, bikes, etc). We plan on traveling with parents, in-law's etc.

So other than the truck to pull the AS, what is our next purchase? What do we need to buy to actually be equipped and ready to go?
