Are you a Multiple?

Okay, so we have been multiple Airstream owners now for about a year. I've noticed lots of other multiples based on their UserID profile info...but was curious as to how many of us are really out there? And why you have more than one.

Having to divide our attention to more than one ~ and always answer the question "Why do you need two?

Two is better than one. Three is company, four is the score. Five is something to strive for. Six is sick, but seven is heaven!

I have two, but I never set out to have more than one. There was just a cute little Caravel along the side of the road with a "For Sale" sign on it, that seemed to be calling my name. Our original intention was to fix it up and sell it, but about halfway through the project, we both said, "I'm not sure I could part with it." I still have no answer when people ask, "Which one would you sell?" I love them both. I always keep an eye out for another project, too (although I would have to find more space to store it as well).

We have two for individual domain, additional space, and the flexibility to travel two directions at once, or caravan together, or stagger our schedules to meet up or wander off seperately. We can swap them or double up, use the medium one for longer trips or the smaller one to fit in small places. I certainly wouldn't mind a 20' Argosy motorhome though or a SkyDeck...or a Base Camp...dream on...

We have the 310 moho for towing the smaller rig (smaller car on flatbed trailer) and doing bigger camping and the 20' Argosy moho for towing the Excella with two small cars in it (once we finish the Argosy AND the Excella car-hauler, that is...) and doing smaller camping.

You're making a two car hauler out of your Excella? WOW Have you posted your plans or progress? I'd love to see that.

Only one but that is all there is room for. I have room in the back but would have to remove part of the studio to get back there, and it is too small as it is. Karen is not allowed to park her car in my studio.

We are holding tight at three. However - when a 56 or 57 Caravanner comes along we'll change that to four...

Are you a Multiple?

I had never really planned to purchase a second Airstream as my Overlander was my dream coach. My first encounter with what would become my Minuet was at the Sioux Falls, South Dakota WBCCI International Rally. Up until that time, I had never heard of a Minuet and didn't really know that there was anthing unusual about the coach. That initial encounter planted the seed, and I began reading about and researching the Argosy line. Two years later, I began an informal search for a Minuet when I ran across an advertisement in the VAC classifieds for a '78 Minuet located in Indiana. I contacted the owner almost immediately (less than 30 minutes after the advertisement was posted). To my shock, it was the coach that I had seen at the Sioux Falls, SD International, and the original owner was retiring and had purchased a larger Airstream for traveling. The Minuet followed me home less than a week later.

I don't think that I will ever add another coach, but based on my collector cars, I know better than to say never.

I love my Trade Wind. If the right smaller vintage unit comes along, I'll need to sweet talk Jan about that...
