Introduction - Full-time Airstream residents

Hello. My wife and I are full-time Airstreamers. We currently live in a 1970 Safari ("Short Round") and are refurbishing a 1976 Tradewind ("Joan Wilder") to trade up, as it were, and have a full bathroom. We have two dogs and zero debt. It's the way to live!

I full-time in a '74 Tradewind, 25'. It is a good size for me, single, no pets.
I like living 'small' and my truck and trailer are paid for. That IS a good feeling.

Welcome to the forum. Short Round and Joan Wilder? Any explanation for the names or do you just like the movies?

When I retired last year I had everything paid for and money for my last kid's college set aside. It IS a great feeling.

Thanks for the welcomes. As far as the trailer names go we where thinking about adventure and exotic locations. So when I came out with Short Round from Indiana Jones for our first trailer a 70 safari the name fit. He also look like a silver bullet. Joan Wilder is the character from romancing the stone. So it keeps with the theme.
