Depends on how attached you are to your trailer, how unique it is, how hard it will be to replace someday.

Tough decision.

Judging by the rate of decay (or in this case depreciation) that I observed when planning the purchase of my trailer, your airstream is probably near it's lowest rate of loss. This means that you can always buy it, or another one like it, back after you have made your millions in your new venture.

Of course, your trailer may have "sentimental value" in terms of all of those memories. But when you really think about it, the memories are in your head, not in your trailer.

One question to ask your self. Will I have time to use the Airstream while starting a new venture. If she is going to set idle for a few years may be best to sell and purchase another one when you have more time. Or is it time to sell the house and move into the A/S full time? Just how much are you willing to down size in order to make the new venture fly? Will keeping the A/S add to your joy or to your stress?

this is a good point and one of many that i have been mowing over since i have decided on trying this new venture.

in the start i will more then likely not be able to take a vacation for a year or two which i am ready for that, and yes i would hate to see it just sit
especially after all the work i have put in to the trailer.

and ever since me and my wife have looked at the newer 23 fters with queen beds, she's been wanting one bad and she says she thinks she'll feel a little better about pulling it over are 29fter.
by the time we are able to get back into using one i feel the price on one of these would be really doable for us.

i think me and her are going to go ahead and sell.
and give this a try if all works out will be back in a couple of years.
so if any one knows someone looking for a nice 1990 29fter she'll be in the classified when i get home from work and get around to it and i have plenty of pictures available.
