Hi from Florida

New member here from central Florida. After a few years in a fiver we found it was way to big now that the kids are gone. Spent a few weeks looking at and researching TT's and ended up liking/buying an Airstream.

This community looks great and I am sure I will spend a bunch of time here for tips, tricks and advice. Looking forward to getting to know you guys.

Congratulations! You have jumped in with one of the most desirable Airstreams in years. Midsize Airstreams are their most popular and they hit it out of the park with Pendleton.

This forum is a great resource. Learn from our collective experience to maintain your Airstream, treat and protect it from shell and frame corrosion, great upgrades, and fixes if something breaks.

Welcome aboard and pictures would be terrific!

Thank you all for the welcome. I realized last night that my forum name might cause some confusion. We don't have hull 15, it is my sports number specifically hockey. I still play in a men's league.

I will be glad to share pictures once I get some.

We considered quite a few TT's before we settled on the AS. Oliver, Artic Fox (used) , Winnebago etc. We kept comparing them to the AS and eventually it became clear. We really wanted to like the Oliver, in the end it was just to small.

I know no trailer is problem free, but I am really hoping the AS holds to its rep and is problem "less". My last trailer gave me a sour taste.
