Strange or vivid dreams when sleeping in your Airstream???

So my hubby and I just bought our first Airstream - a brand new 2019 FB22. We took it out camping for the first two weeks of July and absolutely love it! During our camping though, we noticed that night after night we both experienced very vivid dreams. We never experienced this in our other trailer and everything went back to normal when we got home. I am looking forward to the next camping trip to see if this happens again but I have to wonder - have any of other Airstreamers experienced this?

Perhaps you could provide more details about other factors which might have come into play, so to speak?



That front bed is pretty small . . .

Maybe you were not sleeping as deeply, which resulted in you remembering more?

It’s all because of the aluminum. Kinda like wearing a tin foil hat! Only bigger.

The ghosts of Wally and the early caravaners frequently visit new owners on their first nights, to encourage you to follow your dreams.

I have noticed that first night our sleep is seldom good. Even with our new mattress. But I had same issue when I was a road warrior.

Sometimes you are just too keyed up or excited to sleep well. Consider that your ordinary home routine has been disrupted, and your mind needs to settle into a new ‘normal routine’ on the road.
I figure to have trouble sleeping the first night, so I plan a shorter run the second day, adjust routine and get comfortable with it. Then it is less of an issue.

In the past, we’ve been traveling to a destination. If you can, travel for the journey, and it makes resting a bit easier. The stress of a schedule does tend to make it harder to relax and sleep.

Well said, Rich.

As Steinbeck said in Travels with Charley: In Search of America:

“Once a journey is designed, equipped, and put in process, a new factor enters and takes over. A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip;
a trip takes us. Tour masters, schedules, reservations, brass-bound and inevitable, dash themselves to wreckage on the personality of the trip. Only when this is recognized can the blown-in-the glass bum relax and go along with it. Only then do the frustrations fall away. In this a journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.”[emphasis added]

Happy trails!

Ha! Not me.

Once I'm in the Airstream, I sleep like a parked car.

Same here. Same mattress as at home. I always sleep deeper and longer in the AS. No difference in dreams though.

The most vivid and realistic dreams we have ever both experienced was staying at the City Park in Andersonville, GA. The ghosts of Union Civil War Prisoners were amoung us, may they rest in peace.
