My second post All I have to say is wow... was after I went down to my closest Airstream dealer and spent hours looking over their 20+ units of all types.

I did not do a low level rivit check, but I did do some serious looking for QA/Design issues, and I did find some minor stuff but nothing like what you are saying, they all seemed solid. Way better then the SOB's I have looked at over the years.

For me I am now on the path to become an AS owner, and have settled on trying to find a newly used AS, but if I get a few months down this path with no luck, I am going to order new b/c I have an 8 year old daughter and we are going to be RV'ing next summer in an AS god willing. My time with my little girl (vs teenager, grownup) is shrinking fast, I will never get it back, this is what is driving my process, for what it is worth. :-)

Unlike you I have never owned an RV, so take my comments in the proper context which is a noob, e.g. my comments all need to have the noob bit &'d into their context, if that makes sense.

We bought a used 2009 flying cloud 1 months ago and loving it every moments. You are absolutely correct about the limited time that we have with our children.

We have 2 children, 5 yrs old girl and a 17 months old boy. We live in 5.5 hours from the oregon coast and drove there for the last 4 weekend. Most of the times it may take us 7 hours to get there but it is well worth it.

Hope you fine your dream airstream soon.

Woodland RV has really great people. When we had our 2005 Safari, we got some things from them and they were really helpful and nice.
