Can't really add too much more than what has already been said, but I too, having had a 19' Bambi would tell you, 20' is too small. 25' is about the smallest I'd consider with the size of your fam....regardless of what brand you go with....cool factor or not.

Just make sure you have the proper tow vehicle for what you're gonna be pulling....you can do a search here on towing by using the search button and can find lots of great info.

Thank you all for some very good tips and advice! You made me think about things that I never would have before. I now know why you all picked an AS. I have a good idea what to look for now. I want one now! Thats funny that the longer ones are sometimes cheaper - do they make 50 footers? I can't wait to go looking. It will be cool to see others AS campers and give them the secret handshake (after I learn it ). Maybe someday soon I can come back to this thread and show you my new AS! How cool would that be? I feel I have more to learn before I make my purchase tho. Not much for me to contribute till then I guess. Maybe I can hang in the off-topic forum and get to know some of you. This site isn't addicting is it?

Thanks again guys! And Gals! You all seem like very, very nice folks. Chat soon!

Depending on your kids, they may think it is "cool" to help you fix up your "new" trailer, too. It may wind up being a great thing to bring your kids closer to you.

1. Place keys to trailer door and all locks in the palm of your right hand.
2. Introduce yourself to some deserving Airstreamer and extend right hand for secret shake.
3. Commence shaking and transfer your keys to the palm of the deserving 'streamer.

If you engage in this secret handshake regularly, you will ALWAYS be royally welcomed and warmly greeted.

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)

I would break their hands with all the keys my unit has IIRC there are at least 6 keys on the ring for the AS.
