I meant to say that we purchased our '89 25' Excella for $7500. We felt good about the price. Everything worked, but my husband chose to update a few things. We are updating the interior as mentioned above. (It looked/smelled of the '80s!) We were very happy with the price. We paid cash, so I can't tell you about loans.

Right... parking a 4x8 in a tight spot by the river in the woods (up a mountain with 64 switch backs) is exactly like parking a 32' trailer.

Yep...
The short one will jack knife into a tree quicker...
The short trailers respond quicker.
You have to be very slow and make very gentle turns on the steering wheel.
You cannot stop watching or get distracted.
Once you get a long trailer headed the right way it will pretty much stay on course.
Can you ultimately get the smaller trailer into a smaller space?
Of course...

We have had a busy year. We have camped in many states and more often than not lately we are traveling without as many of the kids. This year our fourth one will turn 18! Quickly they are all turning into college students without the time to join us for family trips. With our changing family dynamic (and the fact that we have literally run out of projects on the bunkhouse) we are planning to sell. We have continuously upgraded since we started, of course, and most recently replaced and upgraded the axles, wheels, tires (again!) brakes, and all running gear. As set up, the bunkhouse sleeps 12-- 9 in permanent beds plus four on various pullouts-- and of course seats just as many for banquet-style dining inside. The dishwasher, whole-house vacuum, outside shower, tank-washing system, custom hickory cabinets, and more storage than any other Airstream we have ever been in make it a great candidate for a tiny home for a fulltiming family, since there's even room for guests and sleepovers. Anyone interested? The Airstream is in absolutely beautiful condition and has been featured in numerous publications. Feel free to private message us.

Just read the updates. And then went back and re-read the whole thing! A real favorite I've recommended to others. "Gee, aren't those Airstreams kind of small?" Ha!

I can't believe you are selling such a treasure! We passed ours along to our children, who are now making their own family memories.
What is your next trailer / project? I guess I've enjoyed your journey so much that I want to know more.
The best to you always! Such a wonderful family on great life adventures!

I just read this whole thread tonight, fantastic work! We're starting to dig into our sovereign project, and will be giving since inspiration here. Now I've got to track down a post containing these triple bunks you mentioned!
