Dream Airstream

I just picked up what might be the grooviest model Airstream made in the 70's, the 25' 1976 Caravanner. A fairly rare model with lots of windows and a wonderful, open floorplan. I like the 25' size because it's easy to tow with my Land Rover LR3, and it fits in most state parks and campgrounds. But it's big enough to feel spacious and comfortable if you end up spending some time in it. The Caravanner also has a relatively huge bathroom and shower/tub combo. It's got this cool island kitchen and curvy cabinet and countertop as well. Big refrigerator, 10 gallon water heater too. Obviously, I'm smitten.

I have a 1999 25' Safari as well. It's our working camper, and by that I mean everything actually works on it, which is not yet the case on the project Caravanner. But I'm really looking forward to fixing up the Caravanner, I think it's got the potential to be an immensely cool vintage camper.

Right now it's sitting in my driveway, blocking access to my garage. This isn't going to work for long as we live in Truckee CA and we get a bit of snow in the winter - an average season is 25 feet. Hope to work it down the hill to a spot next to my workshop so I can work on it without alienating my wife more than I already have by buying a second Airstream!

Anyone else out there think the Caravanner is cool?

She's in the barn, looking grumpy

Because her owners are not taking her out this weekend.

Got to head north to visit our tiny vacation home, need to insure it's still standing. We have only used our house "up north" about 10 times since we got our Airstream in 2003......

We really, really love our Airstream and the freedom she represents.

Our perfect Bambi (Lily Pad...Rivet, Rivet..) is patiently sitting next to the house under the Bambi Port, hooked up to 30 amp and ready to roll at a moment's notice...just need to put in the food, check the tires, and give it a bath...and we're off! I'm itchin' to go...haven't been able to get out since June!

But it's gonna cool off real soon here and away we go!
