i bought the airstream to travel.its funny how wherever i go people are always interested in the wife and i look at this trailer as our condo.wouldnt want a fifth wheel since it wouldnt fit our criteria for travel.trully like the simplicity of our airstream.also towing long distances is not overwhelming as it used to be with the old sobs.only trailer wife would trade for this,is a new 34ft airstream.however this is the only trailer after 4 years that she trully would not want to part with.

Face it, if someone is 65 buying a new camper what are the odds they will be using it over five years. Those doing so over ten are probably pretty rare. Given that, who would want to spend twice as much on construction designed to out live themselves?

My goal is to wheel up to the "Men's Club" at the age of 85 and go on in! We bought a new Airstream within the last year and intend to use it for many years. Of course I have 28 years to reach that goal.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

We have had Lucy for almost four years now. During that time, we have towed Lucy over 50,000 miles, and have slept in her almost 600 nights. We have immensely enjoyed our Airstream adventures, and look forward to many more.

We have two tow vehicles because we go Airstreaming so much. We hope to wear those out and replace them several times.

We are sixty and sixty-one, respectively. The years have been kind to us, and we hope to be able to Airstream for another fifteen to twenty years.

There are just so many places that we have yet to go.

The usual limit for humans is 114. Not many people make it that far, but very, very few of them make it to 115. I have 45 years to 114 and hope our Safari can make it because I don't want to be restoring it at 105.

Still happy here. Glad I don't have a SOB of trailer. More because og the size of the 5th wheels. I mean over the past year and half, there is no way I could have gone to some of the places I have already gone. Yes, I have had some issues with quality, but so far Airstream has fixed them. I only have 5 months left on my 2 year warranty. In a way I can't wait,...That way she really becomes mine. I get to do the fixes. The problems,if they occur will be ours. The solution will be mine and will make ownership a little more rewarding.

All good points, I remember a article in AS LIFE where the guy had to take the keys away from Dad; our day is coming, and we'll keep crusin' until that day.
