Joined last week, but waited to introduce myself until our beautiful 2005 19' Bambi Safari LS came home - today! Unbelievable that she is actually here. Like many, wanted an Airstream for decades. Became very serious about purchasing one recently. Researched, read threads here, visited our dealership, talked with friends who knew someone that once had one, well, you get the picture. Some friends extended opinions of a 5th wheel ( easier backing, get more room for the money, etc.) But, our hearts were with the Airstream. And, what we read on the Airstream forums sealed it.
It is amazing how we found our Bambi. We looked at the Airstreams on the dealership lot (2008 & 2009). No pre-owned! Went back several times. Began seriously talking about waiting a bit to see what prices on the '08 would do. Then came the exciting news. A 2005 was coming in within a few days! We were the first to see it and purchased within an hour. Our Bambi Safari was so well taken care of; it is immaculate and all systems humming. We are still smiling
Wanted to share the great news. And, although you couldn't have realized it, all of your contributions of stories, advice, and kind words to others helped this new Airstream owner.
We look forward to many happy travels.
