We purchased our Airstream from a couple who had purchased it as their wedding present to each other. He developed kidney problems and other health issues and their (now our) Airstream had sat for years. They were very sad to see it go, but felt it was going to a good home.
Fast forward 2 1/2 years. We returned last night from a trip to Tucson. Visited fellow Airstreamers and enjoyed having our home away from home. We are able to get out about every 3 months, and have several trips planned for this year.
Hopefully your Belle is out on the road and their new owners love it as much as we love ours. Oh yes, our Airstream has new axles (and a host of other stuff). Sitting is hard on these babies.
