Finally got the new AS...

This past Tuesday we took possession of our new 27' International! This is our first time with a towable (or any RV for that matter...unless tent camping counts!) The dealer was great and suggested that we video tape the whole walk glad we did as we had many questions and referred back to the tape many times. We stayed 2 nights by the dealer at a RV park...wonderful neighbors that liked to help!!! We had a few "what the hell do I do" moments, like when the LP alarm started beeping at 5:30am (power surge!) Will we ever get used to backing this thing up? We have a storage area where we (used hubby actually) have to back this thing(as yet to be named) into the parking space! He did great with the help of our son, but I'm sure was white knuckled all the way. SLOW is the key word. I did take many many many notes from everyone who offered lists and was surprised how well prepared we were...thank you!
The one thing I can't get used to...yet no garbage disposal!! A mesh sink stopper took care of that! We are looking forward to many great times on the road, hopefully running into many of you along the way!
By the Airstreamers wave at other Airstreamers, kinda like bikers do??? hope so, 'cuz I waved at a bunch!

Welcome aboard, and Congrats!!!

Gotta post pictures. It required...

I just got mine about 2 weeks ago.

Our Maiden Voyage is this coming weekend. We have done a lot of driveway camping, though.

Welcome to!! Your new rig sounds like a beaut! Hope you enjoy yourselves completely; we're sure you will meet some wonderful folks; indeed, this website always has willing souls with valuable suggestions.

Oh, and when you see an AS on the road, you are so permitted (encouraged even) to wave or flash your lights if the highway is divided. We flashed 3-4 AS's on our recent round-trip from Illinois to Arizona.

Enjoy the journey.

Congratulations !!. You are surely going to enjoy the AS and especially the pride that comes with owning one. It's like the "Harleyhood". Looking forward to the pictures of any kind of upgrades or modifications. I wave too. Blame it on the H.O.G
