Hello from Texaa

My husband and I are new to RV camping, and are hoping it will be a fun hobby as we transition to empty nesting. We purchased a 1999 Excella 28 last summer and went on our first trip this spring. Our rig is in very nice shape for a 23 year old... it is mostly original, and I found this site while looking at how to update the Jack knife sofa.

Looking forward to meeting fellow Airstreamers out there!

Holly & Dave

Welcome to the neighborhood. An Excella is a roomy trailer. Have fun, enjoy the ride and make some memories.

Welcome from Colorado: A 1999 Excella 28' is a very nice Airstream travel trailer. You can go anywhere with it in good comfort, home away from home so to speak. Airstream trailers tend to last a very long time. We have a 86 Limited 34' and a 75 Overlander 27'. Neither are as nice or as well built as your 1999, but still good enough for us. Here is a photo of the Overlander out traveling in the Colorado. Let's just say it is important to stay on the road in Colorado. We spent the night here.

Welcome from New Hampshire

Hi Holly & Dave - Welcome Aboard the forums! Glad you found us!

We were all new at some point so no worries there. I consider us still newbs having traveled around the past 6 years. We learn something new every adventure.

There's lot's of great information, projects and helpful people here. All you have to do is ask. Chances are someone has already dealt with the same problem and may have a solution for you. Not to mention the many great ideas and projects folks share.

Congratulations on your rig! All the best making great adventures and memories.

Doesn't look like a bad place to stay the night! Beautiful camper!! Hope it was a voluntary stay! I can't wait to get enough time off from the day job to get out to Colorado. Crossing my fingers for August, I'm just a little overwhelmed at trying to plan all of the stops. MAybe a GoodSam membership or something would be helpful - or an RV park travel agent

Welcome, from a neighbor in West Lake Hills. My mom and dad graduated from Buda High School (long since closed). I bought my current tow vehicle at Truck City Ford in Buda.

We are relatively new, having bought our 25FB 18 months ago. We spent a few months getting her ready for travel but have logged >100 nights and >10,000 miles since she was ready for the road a year ago.

Lots to learn, and the forum is a great place to learn it.
