I have owned a 1989 25 Excella, a 1990 34' Excella and I now own 2 34' Limited w/slideouts, one a 2001 and one a 2003. I bought all the above new except the 2003 which was 6 months old.

2 Airstreams

I have 2 34' Limited Slide outs - a 2000 with the couch slide and a 2003 with the dinette slide. I have my own 6 site campsite on the side of Cold Mnt in North Carolina. My wife and I use the 2000(has fireplace) and my grown children and friends use the 2003. In the winter after hurricane season, we bring the Airstreams back to Islamorada, Fl where we live.

how many have you owned at once you mean

Sorry, I voted before I read your post clarifying the poll. Whoops. Can I have a do-over?

I owned two until yesterday...1966 Overlander and a 1973 Argosy 24. I sold the Argosy yesterday and watched with tears in my eyes as it went down the road. We decided to get a shortie instead of keeping two almost the same size. Sooo, the hunt is on! Brenda/Chattanooga,TN

We also owned a 1968 29' Streamline Empress. Good rig, but not quite an Airstream. There was one thing about it that I did like over the Airstream, and that was the shower actually had a door, so you didn't get water everywhere, as opposed to that half-door thingamabobber on our Sovereign.

Post How Many Airstreams Do You Own

We have four airstreams; 1971 31 foot Sovereign (trying to sell), a 1968 24 foot Tradewind (trying to sell), a 1963 22 foot Safari (being shined) and a 1963 19 foot Globetrotter (stripping the interior walls to reveal the aluminum).

Market Analysis

With this many people still owning 1 airstream, there is potential for repeat sales. Airstream should be seeing that.

It's a little bit harder on the pocketbook to buy more than one brand new trailer! I'm assuming, by "repeat sales", you mean trading/selling one to buy another.

I don't think I would want more than one new trailer anyhow...the vintage trailers are for me. The only reason I have a new trailer is so I can camp while restoring the vintage trailers.

My trailer stash is:
2002 Bambi 19' - pristine condition and being used
1964 Bambi II 17' - pristine, almost restored condition and being used
1954 Safari 22' - in the process of restoring and not using
WBCCI Region One

Attitude is the only difference between ordeal and adventure

I have two. My original 75 Argosy 28 that I've had since 1992 and the '79 Excella 500 31' that I've owned since March 2005.

It's hard to describe how much I like this Excella. One would not think that three feet makes much of a difference, but it's perceived as a BIG ONE by me. In the Argosy the living room and the kitchen sort of merge and the twin beds sort of negate the hallway idea. In the Excella, there's a LOT of room in the front, and the hallway has a triple closet, which is almost a crazy luxury in an RV.

I can buy in to the idea that there is a living area, a kitchen, a bath, and a bedroom in the Excella. I never had that feeling in the Argosy. It all just blended in together, except for the rear bath, which did feel distinctively separate.

That said, I wonder how much of that effect is due to furnishings. The Excella has different colors for each portion. There's even a different pattern in the vinyl covering in the tiny bathroom. It makes a stronger statement that, "I am a different part of this trailer," and the Argosy does not.

Don't get me wrong, however. I loved the Argosy and it was very, very good to me. It was one of the best investments I've ever made. I hope that this Excella is as good to me in the long run, too.

So far, so good...
