Now that it's up for sale, let's hope that nothing goes dreadfully failure, hail damage, etc......

Hope you sell the trailer too. Some people are fragile and not meant to have too much info going on. I am one of those types. I took actualization therapy for a year and came out a different person with a new way to perceive things. But it was not instant change - it was a map I could follow from that place I was at.
I hope the great people on these forums rub off on you as they have me. Maybe one day we can have the 'AIRSTREAM LOUNGE' where we can all gather and talk about more personal matters. Because these people are beautiful and wonderful folks that are 'keeper' types, and they are always here...ALWAYS!
NOW I am going to insert this in here for you! This is dedicated to each and everyone of you who hang out on this site.

All I can do is echo most of the thoughts from other 'streamers... And tell you that you must be grateful for at least one thing when all is said and done: thank God this realization was about an Airstream and not your wife!

My best to you...

The pics in the link are great.
That's a nice unit.
It should sell quickly.

Hope you're not giving up on RVing for good.
It is a great lifestyle.

So Robbie... did you sell your AS and find the nirvana you've been so desperately seeking? Say, have you ever found a spider in your house?

You are never more than 3 feet from a spider.

Your anxiety over insects is too bad, and I realize you have other reasons for selling the trailer. Wth the current bed bug influx to even the nicer hotels, you must be finding yourself reluctant to leave home. Good luck with your future endeavors. Pat

Hi, Robbie,

The outside of your trailer looks lovely. Will you be posting any photos of the inside?
If it's to be, it's up to me.

Thank you.

Aage, please email me for a link to pics.

All is very well, everything is good.

I am not afraid of bugs, just did not like the idea of bugs crawling off my outdoor camping chairs after sitting outside all day and then crawling under my bed in my AS.

My opinion, a AS design.

They should have never made it so your outside gear is stored under your bed.

I cured this problem the first week I owned my AS by installing a wood panel under my bed so my wife could store blankets etc. under our bed without the fear of a spider or bug falling out of it when we unfolded it.

A place where I last camped had lots of black widow spiders every where.

And they love pipes or metal holes to crawl into...........lawn chairs are made of aluminum and have lots of holes.

We will be staying in motels from now on.

The main reason I can't do this anymore is my shoulders are worn out and the worry of not being able to do what I need to do with my AS is just too much.

Thank you all.

Robbie R.

Robbie, some people would rather let something sit and rot, before they would admit they had made a mistake, or had lost their desire.

We've all seen the guy that owns something cool, but clearly doesn't really want it's deteriorating, but he is hanging on to it til the end of time...because to let it go, means he might have to admit to himself, perhaps, he made a mistake, and accept the loss of a dream.

I'm glad you are being realistic to yourself on how you feel about your Airstream, and are letting it go, so that someone else can enjoy it. Good for you!

And to redhawkerII, thanks for the Annie Lennox video! What a great song!
