Well We Did It - 1978 Ambassador Is Ours

Thanks for all of the advice when looking for our vintage Airstream. After numerous disappointments, we are the new owners of a 1978 Ambassador. We are the third owners and excited about beginning a new chapter in our long camping history. Now the fun begins. I'm glad this forum exists, as we have gotten much good advice already. As ad added bonus...we are getting several dozen 8-track tapes...and vintage dishes. Guess makes us real retro campers!

Congrats...did you get a 28 footer?

We also got an 8 track system, in good working order, along with a dozen or so Gospel tapes - there must have been some real 'wild' parties by our PO!

Back in 1977, we bought a new Class C 24ft MoHo - we had small kids, and the bunk beds on the model we got worked perfect, at the of the options was a cassette or 8-track - in our great wisdom of that era, we went with the 8-track, with all it's great promise for the future... We've got 30 or 40 of those tapes in a box stored somewhere in our garage - got to find them some day! Just think, all those 8-track tapes we have could now be put onto one small CD, not much larger than a silver dollar - or only take up a tiny portion of a USB type chip drive! thing you know we'll all be able to 'fly' in one of those contraptions that look like an airstream, with wings and a tail...

I hooked up our XM Radio to the 'stereo' portion of the system for a more modern approach...

You can see some of the stuff we've done to our Ambassador on this thread:

Have fun with your new toy....
