Hello! I actually joined this forum several years ago before I found my trailer so I mostly just lurked and drooled over everyone's pictures
. In December 2009 I purchased my first trailer, a 1973 Serro Scotty. It was a wonderful introduction to trailer camping/RVing since before we had only backpacked and 4x4 camped. One trip and we were hooked but we knew we needed a bigger trailer. Not too big because we needed to tow it with an F-150, but definitely bigger than 13 feet!
I had been coveting an Airstream for years so my quest began in earnest now that hubby was on board. I wanted a riveted aluminum trailer so I searched for Airstreams, Avions, SilverStreaks, Streamliners. In September 2010 I found her on Craigslist, not an Airstream, but vintage Kin...a 1963
Avalair. We drove 3 hours hoping she would be as great as she looked in the ad...she was! Thus Dorothy Gale came home with us and promptly went on her maiden voyage; a week long trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota and Devil's Tower.
It was a long wait and sometimes I thought I would never find my aluminum trailer - one that was in my price range, the right length, in the condition I was looking for and not located half the country away. But finally I did and she is a dream come true!
And now some pics:
