Before we buy

Is there an outlet (hopefully in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia) where we. Could rent a medium size Airstream with tow vehicle. Seems to be a logical step before making a major investment.

You're out of luck. You best bet is to window shop.

There's an Airstream dealer in northern VA near DC, Safford RV. Never been there so I cant say anything good or bad.

Have you ever camped before? Most folks seem to work their way up to an Airstream from older and or cheaper rigs. Give us some background and what you're trying to do.

Yes, 13 grand for two weeks is a bit much.

It is a bit much, but they also provide the tow vehicle, so keep in mind you're renting two vehicles in reality and all the associated costs. The prices are on par with exotic rentals.

The prior posts missed one opportunity - Virginia Highland Haven just off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Copper Hill VA.... Between Roanoke and Floyd VA

It's an Airstream Only Campground, and while you can't RENT an Airstream, you could meet with a number of Airstream owners - some of whom might just have an Airstream for sale. They'll almost all be willing to share experiences with you.

Should add, Airstreams4Rent changed their Business name to RetroRVs and remain located in Phoenix AZ. They are still in the rental business along with restoration.

I think you need some baby steps here. Buy a truck & see how that works first. If you don't like it forget the whole idea & join Hilton Rewards, if the truck works buy a cheaper TT like was said in an earlier post. NOW, if you like the lifestyle, IT's AIRSTREAM TIME!
