Today is a good day! Today is 10.11.12 and today is the day we purchased our very own Airstream! I’m so excited, I can barely write this post. After many months of research, attending rallies, touring various models, touring the Airstream Factory in Ohio and asking so many questions from current Airstream owners ~ we decided on a 2012, 27′ FB International Signature. We purchased our Airstream from Colonial Airstream in NJ. Lauren & Patrick Botticelli and their GM, David Starin have been wonderful to work with. They are all uber knowledgeable, patient and very accommodating to our needs being that we are in Denver. We look forward to the day that we can pick up our Airstream, Beatrice (yes, I had to name her!!). Will most likely be in November when we can make that long cross-country trip to see her for the first time. I will also be posting on our continued relationship with Colonial, our walk thru and all they will teach us “Newbies” about the systems, operations, towing etc. of our new girl. Yes, all Airstreams are girls just like sail boats and motor yachts!!
Some photos of Beatrice from Colonial’s website
So, after 137 blog posts I will finally be able post about our Airstream adventures. Many more photos to follow of when Beatrice is all decked out with her new bedding, decorative pillows and such. And, we’ll be posting about our “Maiden Voyage” with her across the great US of A. Wish us luck, we’re pretty nervous!!
