Man I can't wait to get out this spring. I have total cabin fever!

I want to get out about 30-45 days this year. Kind of ambitious with a full time job, but I have a ton of vacation. ;-)

Interesting to see how much time members spend in their Airstreams. I bought mine to turn into a mobile office/living quarters. I'm a professional motorsports photographer and spend of lot of time on locations from March through November.

When I land a gig shooting all the AMA Superbike races around the country I'll have to make sure I stop by some of the Airstream owners' parks discussed in this thread.

Last year I spent a total of 9 months in my AS while on a traveling assignment. Having my trusty AS with me allowed me freedom to go and see so many places. Eventually I would like to spend most, if not all of my time on the road!

I don't think they live in the Georgia I know! I've seen temps get to 105!

That resort is high enough in the mountains where the temps probably are cooler..78 might be a stretch for the high in the summer , but maybe. I also saw a new Rv resort in
the mountain area when we were up there skiing in February, can't remember the name, but it was right on the North Carolina border. There was a 345 parked there when we drove through.

Re: Long Term

Just bought a 22' 2004 CCD, simply amazing. I am taking 6 months to a year to shoot a Documentary. Any thoughts on long term purchases to make life easier. I don't want TV, Microwave, all those "labour saving" devices. A Honda generator obviously...any other thoughts? I will be using email and internet...

got me thinking

This poll shows that most of us stay in ou AS for less than 30 days a year...mmmm...

now, if we match this poll to the one on how much we spend on our AS each year ...

and then divided that by 30 !!!......

The Waldorf Astoria in the city is cheaper! ain't our AS

Actually, I think most people represented (63.28% to date) are in the "more than 30 days" category...but I agree, the cost per night is staggering, especially for new Airstream owners....another reason to go vintage!

does it count as a "full day" for every day you only spend 10 hours in it, ripping out the interior, sub-floor and frame? if so, i better revise my poll answer!

when i'm done with this thing... BURY me in it!

Can't Beleive it . . .

I started adding it up and think we'll be in it about 50 days & nights this year. I couldn't believe the number, so I had to add it up twice. Not bad for a couple with full time jobs, but thankfully much vacation, pretty much all of it to be spent in the Airstream.

P.S. And this doesn't count the days in the driveway at home doing little projects - probably another 5-10 days there, although we're not sleeping in it at night, then.

Days Per Year

I live in a '72 26' Argosy, travel in a '78 28' Argosy MH, vacation in a '73 31' Airstream on a lot at lake Carl Blackwell in Stillwater, OK. Does this mean more than 365 days?

Even though I just got mine I have just under two weeks in it and I'm aiming for about 60 more nights. One month of that will be at a local lake in the national forest south of town so I can commute and about a month of that will be a trip to the Rockies and a trip to DC in December.

Post script: That would work out to about $75 a night if I never used it again and didnt count camping fees and gas...
