Lightbulb New to the Forum

We are new to the forum. Carl and Ona. We have owned a 1976 25foot Land Yacht for about four years. We have now decided that since we are near retirement and might be spending more time in our "Silver Twinky" that we would love to have a 34foot with the dinnete and a queen in the back. We currently use the 25 footer only a few weeks per year, but hope to change that in a couple of years. The are in the deep south Bossier City LA, but have kids in the NW, Seattle, and the NE, PA & DE. So we have places to travel to.

What is the meaning of the three and four rivets on the members data?

Again we are looking for a 32 or 34 footer with the dinette and a queen in the back please let us know of any in the 1980's to 1990's that are available.

Come by on your way to Seattle. I've got a 31' Sovereign wiht rear bed, but would rather have something shorter. You can see my beginning remodel in "sovereign redux". We could talk! I think you'll find that 31' AS are readily available, but not too many with the rear bed.

The rivets are a shorthand for all the posts you've put into the forum. Today I got my 500th, after only 6 months as a member, so either I'm a buttinsky (there have been some other suggestions ) or the scale is set too low. I prefer to think the latter.

Welcome! Good luck in your travels to come and in finding the exact AS you desire.

Carl & Ona -- Welcome to the Forums! You have gotten this far without us but we'd sure welcome your input and experience helping other folks. I don't have any rivets so take this with a grain of salt ... . Here is the breakdown on earning the rivets that appear below our user names. This is just a fun way to see who has the most posting action.

Longer Airstreams have fore-and-aft beds and more bathroom/wardrobe space. That's pretty nice by itself. Longer Airstreams do limit your ability to find state park and national forest campsites that are long enough. 25' is a frequently mentioned compromise -- you'll experience occasional difficulties finding room at some public campgrounds. There is not so much of a length issue with private campgrounds. Reservations are most useful with either public or private!

Your Power Stroke will tow anything on the planet. Being new vintage my Safari is 1000# heavier than trailers of 25-30 years ago. I own diesel for long range performance on all grades with my 25' Safari.

My experience on the Forums is that other folks' busy lives will not allow them to keep an eye out for your preferred Airstream. You still might get lucky ... I'd suggest monitoring the classifieds on these Forums and at Vintage Airstream Club. Patience will pay off. And again, Welcome -- and let us know how your adventures fare!
