That is one SHARP looking coach!
Don't get me wrong...I love Airstreams too. I just don't like badmouthing of Avion
No really, I used to thumb my nose at them when I had my Excella until I really took a good look at one.
But the bottom line is that the silver trailers just have a "Character" about them that the white boxes and Super 5ers just don't. I just got the new "Trailer Life" and they have Thor's new brand "Redwood" advertised on the back cover. I checked out their website...the things are pretty magnificent! But they still don't have the character of our old silver tubes.
I rewatched "The Long Long Trailer" the other night and still think a 32' New Moon with the happy little door bell jingle would be cool.
I do like the Raptor line of huge 5er toy haulers; where you can haul your HOG and your ATV in the back (maybe a golf cart or so), get to where you're going, then offload the toys and fold down the bunks and have a guest bedroom for four in the back. But even though they have four times the room of my silver tube, they just don't have the character.
OK so here's a question I don't really have an answer to but will throw out to you all: At what point does "Camping" become "Living"? In other words, how big a rig do we really need? I currently pull a 34' triple axle silver pipe and I like it a lot. My dad has a 31' Holiday Rambler 5er that has easily double the room, but it overgrosses his truck. My Avion pulls very nicely behind my Ram turbodiesel. Would I like more room? Well, with four of us and a dog, yes. But for two people, I think what I have is more than enough. So where does "Camping" become "Living" and at what size of rig does it occur?
Rhetorical questions I know, but figured I'd throw 'em out there
See you all on the road!
