No, the trailers and motorhomes are also in double axle configurations.

Do you mean where I go with the Airstream in Frane ?

I live in the north of France, near the belgium frontier and he As is near me in storage when it's wintering time. So in june of each year, now, we decide to live in for 2 monthes, and we park it in a campground, not so far from our apartment, and we continue to work... it's the way we found to wait the real holidays with the AS. The campground is near Calais and I'm a it impatient to "begin the season now...".
This year, in August, we 've planned to go in another campground near Bordeaux: Arcachon exactly ; Always the same problem, we have to find a campground that accept this trailer, for space, double axle and electricity.
The last campground ( in the Basque coast) has given the place to another just before we reserve...
You know all the story now.

Bruno.

Sounds like a classic case of, "the grass always looks greener on the other side."

Sure with Airstream , I've imported one and now it's the american dream but in France. Why don't you try to import a "Knauss caravan " in USA if it's your dream ...lol
We always think that the neighbor's grass is greener than our...
Even if the interiors of these European caravans are great, I've never hesitated in the choice for spending good times ... ONLY in an AIRSTREAM !With the time, I know I 'm right with that.


Bruno
The same for me.. as an European I love American design, especially from the 1950-60's.. but very often (and unfortunately) the build quality and technical solutions are also stuck in that period...just look at any household appliance, they are so power inefficient, bulky, heavy...and don't function very well or for very long...


I love my Airstream, but the more I use it, I realise I wish it had more advanced solutions and better thought out details, like the Knaus, but with AIRSTREAM design style please!
