Smile New member....long time fan

Well I have bartered for a 73 31' footer, The PO only had for a year and never used. The PPO lived in for a couple gas wasnt used, fridge, water heater converted to electric only. Interior is in pretty good shape, with a few tambour door problems.. I love the vista view windows and had to remove the interior pane so I could clean and see through them.
I would like to thank everyone for the posts that have helped me so far and in the future......I am sure I will post asking for some help in the future.....

My daughters first comment about the AS........its better than a tent

Welcome! Congratulations on your new obsession. Be sure to document your progress, and journeys, with pictures.

My older daughter's first impression of our new Airstream, "Wow! How old is it? My youngest daughter, "Cool! Looks like a space ship. Can I have it?"
Now, they both want one of their own.

Greetings oleschool,

Welcome to the group and we're glad you joined. I think Airstreams are better than tents too.

We're from the Hilton area. My folks have lived on the lake since 1977.

Hi Bill. Ditto to all the welcomes. Let us know if we can help you navigate these pages or the innards or outerds of your new toy.

Your daughters will finally be up to speed when they begin to call it the aluminum tent as you take it camping with not all systems running. But good!
