An Eye Opener

My wife and I have been considering buying an Airstream and full-timing. I feel like Tim and Colin have become trusted friends, helping me make the purchase and plan the extensive restoration. There’s a lot of great info here. I listen to each podcast multiple times. I’m sure I’ll be sending in questions in the future. -Dano
