HA HA HA HA HA! LOL! What a hoot...you're right too...I am getting middle aged and needed more comfort.....

but I'm still up to a good "flashing" from a fellow Airstreamer on the road....that part hasn't caught up to my middle age head yet!

Still laughing hard on that "cute yuppie Bambi" dig!

I think maybe it has to do with that "out of the mainstream" thing.
People with the guts to be different usually get respect from others who are , um, not of the herd of the majority.

I'll bet it has alot to do with the fact they are both American Icons!

I just sold my last Harley (1999 Low-Rider), had 3 others as well as a bunch of Hondas, a few Yamahas, & 1 Triumph-'66 650 Bonneville. I always felt a rider was a 'rider'. Leg probs & 'old' age (mid-50's) have relegated my exploits around our great country to travel-trailer life. My wife & I are very recently retired teachers and bought a sm. trailer (17' Casita) to see if we like the idea. After 3 mos. touring N.E., S. Canada, & a little of the mid-east states we have decided this is something we are going to do. We have ruled out the Bambi as being too small for 90-180 day trips & have setteled in to thinking a 25-Safari will fit our budget & space needs. We are traveling to see 3 25's this week. Hope to be an actual owner and a full part of the A/S group within 2-3 wks!! There is a special bond that develops between members of these owners groups & we are looking forward to meeting other A/Sers in our travels. Any thoughts on Safari 25's & our intended use would be welcome. With a big wave from us to y'all, see you 'on-the-road!'

Any thoughts - yeah, you're lucky dogs! You're going to have so much fun. I wish we were ready to travel around full time. As it is the 17 footer is plenty of room for our short trips. A 25 looks like plenty of room to us. Be sure to let us know how the ones you look at turn out.

trailer

Ed & Debbie, see you're in Dallas. We're in Southlake with a 24' Tradewind which is a great size for us. When you get your trailer let me know, we've got a local A.S. club (WBCCI) that we joined a few months ago if you're interested. Real friendly people.

We are 90% sure to get one of the 25' Safari's this week, we've been looking for some time and have 5 of them to see between OK, West TX, & S. TX.!! We live in Coppell and will be in touch when we buy. I miss the HOG group, still stay in-touch, but without a 'scooter' I'm not really there any more. The A/S group sounds like a lot of fun!!

ed & debbie

Welcome aboard, hope your search turns up a nice one. We recently bought a 67 Caravel (17') which for us is a perfect size. I think we luck'd out w/ ours the exterior is completely dent free and just needs minor interior work. When you find one post some pictures.

Hog Group

I still have my old leather vest with Hog Patches. When you get your AS, join our local group and we can sit in front of our trailers reminiscing about rolling back the throttle and listening to the rumble. You can email me at my email address on the profile if you want some info on the local group.
