They are very sexy little trailers, to be sure. We understand why folks are drqn to them. We came real close to getting one...but then the dealder backed out of the deal...the deal they proposed to us! Their loss and our gain...instead, we bought a new 2006 19' Safari Bambi SE LS from another dealier (Oasis RV in Tucson) and have been very pleased with both the dealer and our Bambi...a better decision for us in the end!

Just after I bought my '06 19CCD, Bates called me and said that they had the only '06 Anniversary model 19......it was the PROTOTYPE that Winnick built for Airstream.

I was really wanting this trailer, but we were so far apart on their price and the low-ball trade-in they were giving me on my yet unused CCD, I passed on the deal. I can always re-model my 19 to look just like the 75th anyway......and probably for a lot less than buying theirs!!

That's kind of cool. I wonder who ended up with it.

With these limited edition extra-expensive trailers, I always wonder if they get used like a regular trailer, or if people buy them for status symbols and tuck them away.

$ Yes it is.
Not so sure about having money left over part. Or for that matter, when it's done.....

Has anyone paided over $60K for the 75th? They were going more in the low to mid $50K when we bought ours. Of course a few dealers were trying to get every cent they could...

I checked and there are now only 2 left on dealers lots. Bates and Bob Caldwell's. Caldwell's has theirs listed at $52,650.

Our 75th hates to sit still!

I can speak for our 75th Anniversarry - the ONLY time it is tucked away is during the winter (hibernating in warm & dry warehouse)

Spring / Summer / Fall she sits in our driveway, ready for spontaneous weekends or long trips. The nieces and nephews camp out in it in the driveway!

Expensive? Yes - I didn't pay $60K, closer to the $50K that was mentioned. Worth it? Every penny! I have never parked next to another one, and short of Dave's other restoration jobs, I have yet to see a vintage one that looks as good, inside or out.

Other Airstreamers are always a bit surprised to find out that this is our first AS. We researched them for a long time and we ready to buy a vintage one to fix up - then we saw the pictures of the 75th...we were owners within a week!

So if you see us rolling by, flag us down. I will be happy to let you take a peek!
