Make sure to have your sound up and wait for the 'tour' videos to load!

Poor me!

Hey there Roger-

Well some people need more than others! I for one am very happy and comfortable in my Airstreams! Imagine boondocking with one of those?

Finally, something that may last as long as an Airstream. Most semi trailers don't wear out, they are rendered obsolete by neweer/larger/lighter models. Of course, for the price of one of those, you could buy several Airstreams. I had a 27 year old 40' dry van trailer that was as solid as the day it was built. Last time I checked the hubometer, it had over 3 million miles on it.

It would take a mighty big boon to dock one of those! Plus a CDL!

Actually it may not require a CDL in many states if it is titled as a RV. Blew my mind the first time I found out too Scary thought, but recall seeing all those big bus MoHo's running down the road? No CDL, no airbrake endorsement, no training required. Just plop down your dollars and drive.

How sad. The things people will do when they can't find just the right Airstream and have to go to second best.

At least they get the benefit of riveted aluminum construction! Even if it is an SOB box.

Boats are worse, they don't stop as quickly.

Very Scary Indeed !!

You should at least have to have a basic cdl with an air brake endorsement.

If anyone wants to buy one and needs a driver, lets talk. My rates are fair
