Smile Another newbie! I'm in AB Canada!

Hello! I'm looking forward to participating in group activities- no trailer yet.
I am wishing for a vintage, small, cheap one..needs work is OK- have no idea how to do the reno, but that will be the fun part!
Nice to see other newbies too!

Welcome Shelley,

Glad to have you here with us. "Cheap and needs work" is a good fit. When you find your Airstream you should have no trouble finding help here.

Hi, welcome to the forum. I personally like the word "inexpensive" instead of "cheap" when referring to an Airstream.

Thanks for the welcome! And yes, Kevin, inexpensive is much more fitting..never was an Airstream cheap!
I am still looking, missed at least three- they can move very quickly when priced well.
Definately want older- '55-'69- prolly same range as most people! The amount of work is a bit scary, but it seems that people pick away at it and eventually it is done! It also seems that I will have to travel to find my new gal..or get the friendship network going. How do I ask a non-Airstream fan to inspect a trailer on the other side of the country for me?? What if they decide to buy it!!
Mostly I have a ton of reading to do.
All the best! Shelley
