Hi All..... We just purchased our 25 ft Safari a few months ago and have had a few opportunities to stay in it.
I am a Evangelist and will be traveling full time with my wife starting the beginning of Sept. starting in Upstate NY until after Thanksgiving. So.... if you have any tips - especially for traveling and staying in our trailer in cold weather, it will be appreciated. My parents were also Evangelist's and pulled an Airstream full time for 30 years. I am looking forward to following in their footsteps.
Any storage tips would also be appreciated by my wife.
Look forward to getting to know many of you.
Paul and Cindy

Hi Paul and Cindy, and welcome to the forums! Sounds like you are in for quite a journey, and your parents must have amazing stories from 30 years on the road, too - wow!

As for storage tips and cold weather Airstreaming, check out the search feature at the top of the screen - lots of good info there.

Good luck and please do post pictures of your travels!

Welcome to the forums and to the world of Airstreams. You have quite a history of evangelists coming out of that area of upstate New York. When you mentioned going full time in your Airstream I thought of a book to recommend to you. Peace Like A River by Leif Enger. I do not know if it is still in print or not. It is a wonderful story about miracles, faith, childhood, and becoming an adult all woven around an Airstream. If you can not find a copy and want to read it send me a PM and I will loan you my copy.
