Fulltiming soon?

Hey everyone!
New to the forums and ready to learn. Have traveled 49 of 50 states and all but four of Canada's provinces in our 25 ft Bigfoot trailer ( I know - boo / hiss ). After 8 years of travel we want to go full time in a rig with more room. I have been looking at the 28-31 ft Airstreams. How do you feel abt full timing in a rig of this size. The 34 footer is a bit to big for my taste.

We've spent 200 nights in our 2010 27'FB International and I feel like I could do it forever. 200 Nights - Riveted.

My wife and I are comfortably living in a 28' and are expecting a new baby boy sometime August! We've been here since January and love it.

Absolutely! The 27' FB International is ideal in my opinion -- a foot longer than the 28' rear-bedroom Int'l (go figger). Either way, you'll have to figure on setting up and taking down bedding for the tykes nightly.

Too bad that Airstream abandoned the 30' Bunkhouse models only a few years into the experiment. I feel there is more need for that than toy haulers. It may take some patience finding one but I feel this is possible.

FullTimin2HI -- keep coming back & posting at AIR!

We agree...the 27'FB feels like the layout I'd design for us if I started from scratch. (We traded up from the 22' after spending enough time in that one to know we wanted to spend even more.) With no kids and needing to work often while we're on the road, it's a perfect fit. And when we have friends join us, it's more the comfortable for a few nights.

Becky and I are still rookies (~3 months now) and love our 27' Ocean Breeze. We haven't had a chance to spend more than 4 nights in a row, but can't wait until we can spend 3-4 weeks in our second home. Yes, I know that isn't full timing, but when we retire in a few more years we hope to be spending at least 4-6 months (or more) on the road.

Excella Classic

Hi, We have a 30 foot Excella Classic 1994. We are the 2nd owners and we know the first owners. We are thinking about selling. What year are you looking for and what price range are you looking to buy in? This is our third Airstream. I have fixed up the previous two and just bought this one a few months ago. It is in good shape and I haven't had to do a whole lot to it. We replaced the Fantastic fans and one of the sky lights. We added new tires and rims and brakes. If you are interested you can contact me at Leonhardrenovations@yahoo.com

Thanks,

Dan Leonhard

Dan,

I suggest that you put a listing in the Classifieds section. The Forums are not to be used for selling our trailers, but the Classified section is there expressly for that purpose. They are free for your use.

Be sure to login in (yes, it requires another login) using the same user name and password you created to log in here.
