New here,just wanted to say 'howdy'.

My parents retired from Airstreaming after 40+ yrs. so Mary and I bought they'er last AS. It is an 1985 Sovereign 27. It is in very good condition and the price was a $2 bill. Yes I sleep just fine at night. But like anyone with more energy than sence, We've started a complete remodel. Finding AIR was a true God send, as we know nothing about it. We have competly gutted and rebuilt our 100+ year old farm house here in the Great Black Swamp of NW Ohio, Airstream inards are not the same thing, so we will be asking a lot of Dumb Guy questions. Thanks in advance! Larry + Mary

Well a big welcome y'all from up the road in Lambertville. You can't beat that price. Your farm house sounds wonderful to me. I've been dreaming of an old house with character lately. Newer homes are just lacking charm. If you are daring, there are two groups who have rallies, the Northern Ohio rally and the Metro Detroit rally. Check out those threads and come join us sometime. Good luck on your remodel. I bet it will be beautiful.

I love to hear about folks preserving historical structures, whether they are on wheels or not. Enjoy Airstreaming!
