So do I. What's interesting is the Eddie Bauer is one of the easiest Airstreams to put recliners in. Unbolt the bench seats, take them out and slide two swivel recliners in. Cut down the width of the removable table, and you're got a really nice trailer-for-two.

curious here...why do you take boat motors along? don't they come along with the boat? trolling motors can go with the smokers, gear , etc and dogs in the truck. we always travel laying fragile stuff like rods, bicycles, chairs inside the trailer and take thdm out when we set up camp. in other words, things that are ONLY used when airstreaming, are the only things that are permanently stored within the trailer. everything else finds a place depending on the trip.

Thanks for asking but we both haul our fishing boats on top of our trucks and it would look funny having the motor pointing towards the heavens
Seriously, we are avid fisherman and would leave our boats on the trucks through the camping season because we both have company vehicles for work. Right now, we trailer them but we can't tow tandem in our area.
***Update.....I believe they have found a "offbrand" trailer they are going to purchase. (He called me as I was typing)
Carrying the smokers and other items are starting to look like more work then its worth and when I get mine, I only want momma happy and keeping it simple. Vacations would be the only time to take along the goodies.
Thank you all!!

As mentioned, anything you choose will have it's good points and not-so-good points.

What did your son find?

As for you and your leaning towards a 34-footer: I will always recommend a 34-foot Avion. Every once in awhile a nicely-kept one will show up for sale.... even a "basement" model (model number will be 34XB, 34WB, 34VB...) surfaces occasionally. One of those might fit the bill for you and your "stuff".

Good luck on your search!
