Just Beginning to Buy One

I am 71 years young and have wanted to camp in an Airstream for some 50 years but have never even been in one. Finally have the wife nearly 100% convinced to go along with this and am ready to buy one. Problem is ...which one? Will want a queen bed, pull it with a 2003 Suburban, and in good shape because I am not qualified to fix things. I have a budget in mind of $10,000. Can I find something for this price and what model/length should I be searching for? Thanks for any help.

Kudos to you for following your Airstream dreams. Welcome to the forums. Check the classifieds here. New "for sales" are posted every day. As for model, etc. I'll let someone else answer. I know more about the earlier vintage models and they always need some fixing.
