New to site, but Family Tradition

Post by Chickengrease »

Greetings from NorthWest Indiana. Inherited B-Van from Mom and Dad several years ago and tried real hard to sell it but now very glad we didn't. Perfect set up for couple and a Boston Terrier (another family tradition). Have picked up many tips lurking, so figured I'd better join up to contribute a tid bit here or there. BTW, also have four Airstream trailers, for one reason or another. I guess that's yet another inherited trait. :lol:

Welcome, I'd say you have some rare Airstream addiction or some thing. :P Always nice to have another B owner to bounce idea's off of.

Dear Chickengrease,
How nice that you inherited your B190 and now an appreciation for this legacy is growing. There is a wealth of information and support on this site and it has kept me reading posts on a daily and weekly basis. It has really helped with fixing up my B190 and the plans for travel are growing and growing each day. Welcome to the B190 Enthusiasts!

Welcome Chichengrease! I'm sorts of new here myself, pretty much in the same boat you are being a new here except I'd never heard of an Airstream van til we found "our". oh yeah, we found one, a real one, but that's another post.
Anyhow, we found a wealth of knowledge here in the archives and hope to be adding our own 2 cent to them. Hard to believe there are only about 1400 of these vans made over a 10 year span, just wondering how many are still on the road.

Hello and welcome!

My wife and I are going to B in NWI this Summer. A two month long trip to Lowell -near Crown Point and Cedar Lake. Maybe we’ll see you then!

This is our first Airstream. We hope to get another soon :mrgreen:
