It's Thursday and I like my Airstream...

-because I smile whenever I pull into the driveway and see it waiting there
-because it's fun to pull it down the road and have people wave at us
-because when camping we meet wonderful people who want to talk about it (including a very nice man last summer who felt sorry for us and offered us his tent so we would have the chance to experience tent camping, and he would help us by taking the Safari for a couple of days (um, we said no!))
-because we have a working hot water heater in it now!

It's Thursday and I like my Airstream...

- because I'm sitting here wearing shorts with all the windows open, hearing the birds sing and chase each other, seeing squirrels dashing about, and because I'm sitting here 30 miles from the Florida line while the rest of my crazy family is still chilling out in north central Georgia. Brrr!

- it's Friday, and I had to walk through a field and down a road to meet my pizza delivery guy, while talking to him on the phone all the time! What else could let me live like this?

it's thursday and i like my airstream because.........
of the way the front sofa functions.....
first off it's pretty darn comfortable as a sofa....not too firm, not too saggy.....just right.
next it's the best sofa bed i've sleep on...firm, soft, no lumps or metal thingies....
and it opens/folds pretty smoothly with a durable mechanical feel...it should last.....
then there is that end storage under the arms, and behind the back.
also the drawers down under come in handy.....and the foot lockers over head hold a lot.

it's the perfect place for guests as long as they dont' mind sharing with the pooch.........

so what's your thusday reason?

cheers

Front sofa

I goofed on my recently posted note note. I meant to quote what was ultimately sent as the note (with my apologies to the original poster, 2Arishuman), but failed to add a comment that this poster must have a sofa that is significantly different from mine. Ours is very uncomfortable to sit on, and sleeps terribly. We bought a double size blow up bed to put on top of it for anyone wanting to sleep there.

Maybe they upgraded sofas since 1986. We really like our '86 34 foot Limited, but the sofa is not on the list of reasons why. Expecially if it was Thursday and I had been sleeping on it all week.

hi lee

i do think there is some variation in the sofas.....

i could be wrong but it seems that with the ultraleather (fancy vinyl) option the sofa is thicker.....

seems to have softer cushion or more stuffing....not unlike me....

i agree in my old moho the sofa was very firm....

cheers
2air'

so tell us a reason why you like the trailer.......just anything.

it's thursday and i like my airstream because.........

windows........

i like the windows......

i like looking out the windows.......

& it's hard for others to look in the windows....

i like the vista views, full wrap and tinted windows.......

i like that there are sooooooooooooooooo many windows.......

and that traveling with the airstream opens all sorts of windows........

and i really like airstream windows over microsoft windows......

maybe airstream could help microsoft with windows.....

nahh, they should just keep adding windows.....

i even like washing the windows......

cheers
2air'

so why do you like your airstream this thursday?

I love my Airstream because it is a quiet haven in the back of our property. Nestled away for the rainy winter season in it's cocoon I can slip out there away from everything, put on some soft music, and comfortably read a book and snooze and heal. My little old kitty is often in attendance and she really enjoys these quiet lap times. There is just something very settling to be inside a warm Airstream while rain hits the storage surround roof that gives off a similar sound to rain on the outside of the trailer - it's like a message to stay inside and enjoy the comforts.

having it in our driveway has actually brought us closer to our neighbors (I know we're lucky - this isn't always the case). People who we hadn't met before started coming over, wanting to see our progress, asking lots of questions, and remarking on how cool it was to have one on our street. Now we have two on our street (Boris is parked in our neighbor's driveway) and still no complaints. Cool!

because when I leave my house (which is where my tools live), I'm still always home.

If I look in the rear view mirror and one of my shiny domes isn't there, ack, panic attack. It's hard to drive to town for a sheet of plywood.

And I love my Airstreams because at least one is always ready to go and the other(s) provide hours of pleasant work and designs to think about when you wake in the night and have been told "don't be gettin' up every durn night [you old coot]"...

It's Thursday and I love ALL Airstreams. We sold our dear Safari on Monday so we can get a new Airstream before summer. Now I'm going through withdrawal -- shaking, delirium, and the like. We need to find a new one soon and so now I'm going through all the brochures, the web galleries, the specs. How will we ever decide? I love them all!! HELP!

It's Thursday, and I like my Airstream:

Because 12 days we will have our maiden voyage, the front part is finished new cushions, and the way he looks at me with his cooool sunglasses on.
