Hello

Just joined the forum and thought I'd stop here and say hi!

Been lurking the forum for a few months since we ordered an International 27FBT Hatch in July. Got a call ~6 weeks later saying it will now be a 2024, and that comes with several improvements over the '23.

It should be done any day if it's not done already.

We've rented trailers in the past but this will be our 1st purchase. We think we made the right choice.

Welcome soon to the Airstream owners community. You will like it here. Congratulations on your order. Waiting for delivery will be a bit hard, but you can learn all about it here in these Forums.

We just returned from a 3 week 3500 mile trip with our 1986 Limited Airstream. It's old like me, but it still performs very well. It kinda looks like a newer model.
We often meet other Airstream owners or other interested folks at the campgrounds we stay at. We have had very little trouble with it and I enjoy keeping it in good condition.

We took a tour of the factory in OH and at the end, the tour guide found our trailer! It had just made the turn when they quit for the day. The guide took us out there and took a few pics of us sitting on the rear with the hatch open.

It was pretty cool to see it mid-build like that with wires hanging everywhere. He said it was next in line for flooring. The composite base floor was down and the screw heads were sealed and smoothed over.

Exciting visit.

Welcome! We have been ASers for many years, owning 3 different model 25's and now a 28' FCT... Our experience here on the Forum as well as our travels have been a very rewarding experience. Meeting new "friends" and exploring new areas of the country in our AS is always fun.. Hope you enjoy your new adventures!
