Hello forum members,
I have had the pleasure of owning a 1981 Excella since 2003. We purchased this Airstream after visiting the Vintage Open House at the 2003 International Rally in Vermont and I have enjoyed using it as my beach house at Jersey Shore Haven for the past two summers.
Our first Airstream was a 1962 Sovereign
purchased in 1975 with our wedding gift money. We lived in that trailer full time for one and one half years while attending college and then sold it for $200 less that we paid for it. It was a wonderful, inexpensive alternative to the dorms or college apartments.
I recently purchased a '65 Caravel
17' to fix up and use for traveling. Just writing that sentence brings on a huge smile
My first goal is to get it tow ready and then I will begin to work on the other systems as cash becomes more available. I welcome any advice or experiences that anyone wants to share as this is my first restoration project and I have a ton to learn.
I also need to buy a tow vehicle and I am thinking about the '08 Toyota Highlander. Comments welcome...
Thanks in advance!
